Why is it that the young male victims feel shame after being sexually assaulted?

Why is it that the young male victims feel shame after being sexually assaulted?

Shame: In our society at least, it's inconceivable in mainstream thinking that the male can be the victim; it always has to be the female.

I'm a natural loner who enjoys solitude. Is this abnormal behavior?

I'm a natural loner who enjoys solitude. Is this abnormal behavior?

A good thing: Einstein called himself a "natural loner" but was wise and kind in addition to his tremendous achievement. Many loners are similar. Most of the happiness life gives comes from meaningful caring for others, and this need not include a lot of socializing. Different people's brains give them different preferences; not everybody is a party animal. If you're hurting no one, embrace who you are. ...Read more
