Gill, Marlyn; Tutty, Leslie M.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v6 n3 p31-47 1997
Explores the impact of sexual abuse on male sexual identity. Findings, based on interviews with 10 sexually abused men, suggest that male survivors struggle with the disparity between sexual victimization and societal stereotypes of masculinity. Their greatest difficultly was with social sex-role identity, although they also questioned their gender identity. (RJM)
