Abstract

This study was conducted to find the social differences between male and female sexual abuse victims. Data was collected through surveys of college students and various interviews. In total, 249 surveys were collected from college students. One survey asks yes or no questions about beliefs of sexual abuse while the second was used to gauge which victims are more credible through students rating various scenarios. Four interviews were collected from various people with relations to sexual abuse perceptions. Through the data collected I was able to find that the effects of sexual abuse to a male victim is still less understood than the effects that the sexual abuse would have on a female victim.
