Although 1 in 6 men are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, the problem is very rarely talked about because sexual assault is wrongly considered a "female" issue only. The video addressees that erroneous thinking head on, reading some of the cruel and misguided things people say to dismiss male victims: "What kind of man would let that happen to him?" "It doesn't happen to guys." "It's just a woman's issue." 

The video appears as part of No More Week, a grassroots organization that seeks to raise awareness for domestic violence and sexual assault for all genders.
