Undergraduate Students' Reactions to Analogue Male Disclosure of Sexual Abuse.
Spencer, Tanya D.; Tan, Josephine C. H.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v8 n4 p73-90 1999
Investigates undergraduates' reactions toward hypothetical male survivor's disclosure of sexual abuse. Reports that when age of incident was higher, survivor was seen as less masculine; more responsible for abuse; and sex role and rape myths were strongly applied to him. Less positive reactions were associated with disclosing to other men, abuse occurring at an older age, and a female offender. (Author/JDM)
