Episode 7: Sexual Abuse

Does being mentally ill absolve you of your actions? This week Dan and Paul talk about sexual abuse, who it affects, and how it affects victims. We discuss sexual predators and the victims that they prey on, sexual predators in the workplace, and how in our community people tend to blame everyone but the actual predator (especially in the case of celebrities). We’re definitely not experts in sexual abuse but we do intimately know people who’ve been victims of these heinous crimes.

If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual assault, don’t hesitate to call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE (4673) or visit RAINN.ORG for more information.
