As a heterosexual man who attended Harvard, lived in liberal enclaves all his life, and supported gay rights, Stephens-Davidowitz told me he believed we’d come much further than we actually had.
Instead, his research showed just how far LGBT people are from true victory.
Through Power Point and discussion, we discuss the various ways in which a child can be sexually abused, the impact of sexual abuse, the people who perpetrate sexual abuse, the laws in Indiana, and of course ways in which to prevent this particularly challenging form of child maltreatment.
Your daughter has accused your husband (her stepfather) of sexually abusing her in some fashion.
This is a serious offense by any reckoning If it is true that she was abused in the manner she suggests, she has every right to be upset.
She did not go into details and said she would respect whatever I chose to do.
Initially I was not only shocked but furious at my husband but when I confronted him he seemed genuinely shocked too–and horrified that anything he might have done would have ever been perceived in that way. My daughter said she would respect my decisions but I can tell when we speak on the phone my not having left yet is like I am not supporting her.
As a result, there is no charge for our Prevention Education presentations.
This workshop gives a very general overview of child sexual abuse.

For instance: The rate of Craigslist searches by men seeking casual encounters with men is higher in Mississippi than in New York, while there’s a higher rate of gay men seeking dates and relationships on in New York than in Mississippi.“The closet doesn’t just mean you don’t announce your sexuality on Facebook,” Stephens-Davidowitz said.
“It’s influencing people’s lives in a big way.” For a closeted gay or bisexual man in Mississippi or someplace like it, in other words, a relationship with a man may seem impossible.
After determining that the percentage of men attracted primarily to men is roughly equivalent in states throughout the country, based on dating site and adult-content searches, Stephens-Davidowitz was able to draw some preliminary conclusions.
