Male Rape Is No Laughing Matter (Even Though We’re Taught to Think It Is)

Warning: There will be triggers for some viewers but, if you watch, please watch the whole thing before passing judgment.

Male rape victims and survivors are often met with a specific kind of dismissal and victim blaming.

Watch one man talk about his experience and why the way our culture shapes masculinity has confirmed that, to him, rape is sincerely hilarious.
