Due to an error on my end, one of the photos from this post unfortunately got left behind when I was sending them over to my photo editor. I am re-posting it tonight to give it the equal amount of recognition it deserves.

The posters read:
“How can a girl rape a boy?”
- Nearly everyone I tried to tell for the first four years after it happened.
“Man up.”
- My then-fiance in response to the panic attack I was having, caused by seeing my rapist for the first time since the incident had occurred eight years previous.

Relevant Reblog:
This post is a man holding up two signs in response to the rape he experienced year prior with his attacker being a woman.  He talks about how people do not believe women can rape men, and how his fiancee treated him as less masculine when he had a physical reaction to seeing his attacker.
This is important because there’s a strong belief in our society that men cannot be raped by women, and also that most survivors are women who have been attacked by men.  Men that have survived are considered as inferior or not as manly and are taunted for something that should only receive understanding.  This causes many men to not even admit what has happened to them.
This corresponds to our talks about rape culture and also with picturing masculinity.
