#MeTooGay French Gay Male Sex Abuse Victims
I’ve said it before millions of times. There are, and always have been, millions of gay male sex abuse victims that we never hear about. Finally, it’s starting to get some attention. I think the worst aspect of all this is the way films and books like Call Me By Your Name normalized the sexual relationship between an older man and a 17-year-old gay boy. And, I have even seen gay men of a certain age defend this movie time and again, to the point where I’m disgusted.
At least it’s starting to become a valid discussion.
A week after French incest victims took to Twitter to break the country’s taboo on inter-family sexual abuse, male gay victims of sexual violence have followed suit by using the #MeTooGay hashtag to speak out about abuse they have never before dared to share for fear it would trigger a homophobic backlash against France’s already vulnerable LGBT+ community.
Here’s more. If you go over to Twitter and check it out, you’ll see so many things that will break your heart.
