Claiming The Politics of My Survival: A Male Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse Tells His Story

In March of 2018, as part of Nassau Community College’s Sexual Harassment/Assault
Awareness program, I was invited to give a talk about my experience as a survivor of childhood sexual violence. I received my copy of the video of the talk just last week, and since there may be readers of Alas who are interested, I am posting it now. (I also posted the text of the talk here.)

    There’s also the angle of adults vs. children and teenagers privilege, though that obviously doesn’t cover all the sexual abuse which happens to me.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Nancy. I confess, though, I’m having a hard time understanding what you’re referring to and what you mean.

    Sorry, I meant that a lot of the time, what happens to children gets ignored in favor of what’s convenient for adults.

    My usual example is the long hard fight it’s taken to get even a little progress with later start times for high school.
