On March 17, 2018, during Nassau Community College’s Sexual Harassment Awareness Week, I was invited to speak about my experience as a survivor of childhood sexual violence. One of two events focused exclusively on men’s experience of sexual aggression of any sort—a programming first for the organizing committee—this talk was the second time during the 30 years I’ve been working there that I spoke publicly at my school about being a survivor. The first time, which I describe during the talk itself, I spoke out as a professor in order to make room for my students to speak about their experience; this time, because had the hour all to myself, I was able not only to tell my story, but to start to make an argument for why male survivors should never be, a priori, just because we are men, excluded from conversations focusing on sexual violence. It’s not only that we deserve to be seen and our stories deserve to be heard; it’s also that a better understanding of our experience on its own terms cannot help but contribute to a better understanding of the cultural changes that need to happen for sexual violence to become truly unacceptable. I posted the text of the talk here.
