Engineering event discusses
LGBTQ in corporate life

Munson, students,

ANDREW ALMANI
For the Daily
While many events regarding
sexual abuse are guided toward
raising awareness for female sur-
vivors, an event held Thursday
night aimed to raise awareness,
show support and explain avail-
able resources for male survivors
of sexual abuse.
The event, entitled Dare to
Dream, was co-sponsored by the
Central Student Government
and the Rackham Dean's Stra-
tegic Initiative Grant. The event
emphasized that healing is pos-
sible for male survivors.
The event started with a view-
ing of the documentary "Boys and
Men Healing," which tells the
story of three male survivors and

how their abuse impacted their
recovery process.
After the documentary, Chris
Anderson, executive director of
MaleSurvivor, and Jim Struve,
one of the nonprofit's original
founders, facilitated a panel
discussion. MaleSurvivor is a
national organization that sup-
ports male victims of sexual
abuse.
Rackham student Ben Alter-
man coordinated the event with
help from MaleSurvivor and
many other University and local
organizations.
Currently, one in six males are
sexually abused before the age
of 18 and one of every eight adult
rape victims are male, according
to Anderson and Struve. Accord-
ing to Alterman, 3,584 out of
7,446 sexual abuse survivors at
the University of Michigan are
male.
Alterman, Anderson and
Struve are survivors of male sex-
ual abuse and believe thatthe first

--.5

step toward recovery is reaching
out to people. While this may not
seem hard in theory, Anderson
described that social stereotypes
are huge barriers toward reach-
ing out.
Struve explained that soci-
etal myths, such as the idea that
male survivors are gay or weak,
have hindered survivors reaching
out. Struve believes that social
stigmas associated with sexual
abuse have caused men to think
that they can hide their traumatic
experience and can recover on
their own.
"The definition of masculin-
ity in our culture really creates a
strong disincentive for any man
to come forward and to say that
he has been victimized," Ander-
son said.
While Alterman, Anderson
and Struveahave extensively
researched and discussed this
topic, many students who attend-
ed the event were shocked about
the stories and statistics dis-
cussed. Rackham student Mal-
lory Fuhst described that this
event expanded her perspective
of sexual abuse.
Others, such as Rackham stu-
dent Ramon Martinez, praised
the willingness and strength the
panelists had to share their sto-
ries.
"It's a real issue," he said.to

ways," McGee said.

Police said the woman "found

after seeing a documentary on
the BBC about forced marriag-
es. What followed were secret,
"in-depth" conversations with
the women, Prem told Sky
News.
