Abstract

Many men and boys who are survivors of child sexual abuse face silencing, blaming, fear, stigmatization, and ostracization when others or they themselves perceive their abuse as a transgression of gender norms. Hegemonic masculinity is an important conceptual lens that can help illuminate ways in which many men and boy survivors experience child sexual abuse, and how they make meaning of their abuse experiences as men in patriarchal societies. In this paper, I introduce the concept of hegemonic masculinity, describe some of its core elements, and discuss some of the ways in which these might intersect with men and boy survivors’ abuse experiences and contribute to the oppression of sexual violence survivors
