Hey. Cis Men. Stop co-opting the "Me, too" thing. We need to make our OWN shit. We never talk about sexual assault against men unless we're talking over female victims. Y'all never care about male rpe victims until you need a stepping stone to silence female victims. You dip into a rpe conversation that isnt about you, make your shitty argument, drop the subject entirely, and then go back to wishing YOU were the teenaged boy being preyed upon by the adult teacher. Stop it.
Make your OWN movement.
Might I suggest "I was". "Hear me". "It happened to me". There. Got you started. Free of charge.
