Disclaimer: First, let me state flatly I am not a therapist. If you find anything that you read here is triggering
you into an emotional fallout, please call a mental health professional immediately, or look to a rape crisis center in your area.
comment section: Please refrain from any religious and political speaking. This is a resource for all people, regardless of their religious or political views. I do not say this to be offensive, but I want everyone and anyone to feel comfortable opening up on the Broken Knee Club site. This stems from the fact that today every religion is having problems in this area and I do not want anyone offended. Finally, political discussion does not apply to your healing.
All proceeds that the Broken Knee Charities take in will go to future events for children to learn and grow. Also the Broken Knee will use proceeds to send speaker survivors to local Rape Crisis Center to speak to their clients for free
There are an estimated 39 million adult survivors of child sexual abuse in the U.S. alone. Most will never tell a soul. Every child has a right to a safe and nurturing childhood, but for many children, sexual abuse is an all-too-common occurrence. In the U.S., 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused prior to the age of 18. It can be extremely difficult to talk about sexual abuse and even more difficult to acknowledge that sexual abuse of children of all ages, including infants, happens every day. Sexual abuse of children has become the subject of great community concern and the focus of many legislative and professional initiatives. This is evidenced by the expanding body of literature on sexual abuse, public declarations by adult survivors, and increased media coverage of sexual abuse issues. The Broken Knee club is trying to help stop sexual abuse.
Can men be sexually assaulted?
Men and boys are often the victims of the crimes of sexual assault, sexual abuse, and rape. In fact, in the U.S., about 10% of all victims are male.
The term sexual assault refers to a number of different crimes, ranging from unwanted sexual touching to forced penetration.
Child sexual abuse has gained public attention in the past few decades and has become one of the most high-profile crimes. Since the 1970s the sexual abuse of children and child molestation has increasingly been recognized as deeply damaging to children and thus unacceptable for society as a whole. While sexual use of children by adults has been present throughout history, it has only become the object of significant public attention in recent times.
