Last Fall, MenHealing joined together with The Men’s Story Project to produce The Men’s Story Project:Survivors’ Healing Stories - a storytelling and dialogue project that brings critical dialogue surrounding male sexual victimization and healing stories into a public forum.
To allow greater access to participate in this exciting project, we are expanding our invitation for submissions to include male survivors who live anywhere. To accommodate this change we are also extending the Call for Submission deadline until January 15, 2021.
We are inviting men and folks who identify with masculinity to publicly share their unique personal stories of sexual victimization recovery and healing - so as to support other survivors, break silences, challenge stigma, and help transform social ideas about masculinity and male survivorship.
At no cost to the presenters, the selected applicants will go through a set of seven online workshops together where they’ll support each other in crafting their pieces, gain further tools for healing, and build community. If you are interested in being a part of this project, please visit the Call for Submissions page on our website. menhealing.org/resources-for-survivors/mens-story-project/... See MoreSee Less

Do you know what i was only thinking today that there should be an article about this. I dread to think the numbers of people we'd be dealing with in terms of abuse and what this mask does to them. So sad. That's why if i am brave enough I will say something like this as many women have been subjected to some sort of abuse anyway so it would probably affect nearly all the female population and plenty of males anyway. The child abuse victims too must find this so sick.
I didn't mean my comment to be flippant either, just makes me so angry that people dare to ask you when they have no idea what any of us have been through.
