MALE MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA
Males MST is one of the least talked about service-connected disabilities. The social stigma is tremendous, but the damage is deep. Because of the dominance of males in the military, there are actually more Military Sexual Assault victims who are male than female. But stigma prevents all but the bravest survivors from speaking out on the topic. This page is an opening. the MST survivor interviewed here wants people to know that the same bullies that perpetrate female rape as a crime of power – not lust – are at work in the male community.
