MFL#041 Hot For Teacher ? | Chris Anderson of MaleSurvivor.org

This episode of the Men’s Family Law podcast has Christopher Anderson of MaleSurvivor.org discussing with David Pisarra the short term effects and long term effects of sexual abuse on boys and how it manifests when they are adults. When men are silenced by a society that doesn’t let them share their emotions, they internalize them and that leads to drug addiction, alcohol abuse and sex addiction, failed relationships and life problems.

It’s odd how many men think it would “cool” if they had a teacher that molested them when they were kids, but wouldn’t want it for their sons or daughters because they know it is wrong. I think we need to have more discussions about this topic to raise awareness and root out those teachers who are abusing boys and young men.

Here’s information for parents when their boys are abused: http://www.malesurvivor.org/parents/
