"50 Most Disgusting Responses to Toronto's Male Rape Victim"

As an ASA survivor, I don't even have words for this. I shouldn't have read this today.

Whenever I come across something like this, I just remind myself that with 7 billion people in the world, there's ALWAYS going to be someone who says something inappropriate. Take any issue in the world and any tragedy -- there will always be people willing to say stupid and insensitive things about it. Sometimes they are just ignorant, sometimes they are using bravado to mask their own pain, sometimes they just want attention. I find that unless it is someone who you can actually have an honest conversation with and ask them why they feel that way, its best to just not pay attention to it in the first place.

Is anyone surprised? People who laugh at male rape victims are probably the same ones who make nasty remarks about female rape victims.

I agree with the sentiment expressed here. I like to watch Funniest Home Videos, but it bothers me a lot when the audience is laughing when some guy just slid across the pavement on his face, or landed on the side of a chair on his back where I know he will have to have major back treatment.

I heard someplace that csa (child sexual abuse) is among the most cruel things that can be done to a child. When I was abused at 4 and 12 etc., the perps must have been very cruel and unfeeling people.
