Jada Pinkett Smith’s show Red Table Talk has been picking up steam since her latest episode with former NBA player, Keyon Dooling, who discusses his experience of being sexually abused as a young boy.
There’s a statistic that says 1 in 6 males have been sexually abused growing up. It’s crazy how the discussion about men being sexually abused is never really brought up, compared to how much it’s discussed when it comes to women and young girls.
I understand a lot of males don’t talk a lot about their private life and the things they’ve experienced growing up. I do see a change coming though, men are becoming more comfortable with stepping forward and talking about the abuse they dealt with growing up.
Hopefully this interview will help a lot more men come forward and get the help they may need as well as raise people’s awareness on this issue.
