Myth Buster!

Myth # 7: Men cannot be sexually assaulted.

Are you kidding me? Of course a man can be sexually assaulted. The only one/thing that can’t be sexually assaulted is something without sexual organs... that leaves, what, amoebas? Male rape happens and it can be just as traumatic and humiliating an experience for a man as it is a woman. In some instances, male rape is more brutal and aggressive because it typically involves weapons and multiple attackers.
