Here's A Poster To Remind You That Men Can Be Victims Of Rape Too. It's Time We Talked About It.

We've made a fair amount of progress when it comes to getting rid of the stigmas surrounding rape, domestic violence, and sexual assault. Now, I consciously said "a fair amount" because in reality we still have a long way to go. So don't get comfy and pat yourself on the back just yet. But sadly, when we talk about these issues, too often men are left out of the conversation. This poster does a great job of addressing why it's so important to expand discussions about sexual violence to include guys too.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, please don't be afraid to speak out and ask for help. The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network is an amazing online resource that also has a toll-free hotline where you can speak to a professional and seek help.

Behavior like Norma's is quite common for older folks suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Walter, another man in the same assisted living facility, demanded breakfast from the staff every night around 7:30.
