MALE SURVIVOR - "Sexual abuse and molestation, the open secret"

This is a powerful article found in the February 2012 Issue of The Final Call. Mr. Wright-El, a sexual assault survivor speaks candidly about the traumatic aftermath of sexual abuse in his life. His victimization began when he was 5 years old. His abuser was his female babysitter.
"Mr. Wright-El said as he got older he became extremely shy and was always afraid of the dark. In college he became very promiscuous and had a volatile temper. Getting help made him realize the source of his behaviors was due to molestation, he says. Now 34, Mr. Wright-El is not ashamed of sharing his horrifying experience and says Black men in particular must understand that early exposure to sexual activity is not part of “being a man.”
