Do parents of boys view sexual violence differently to parents of girls?

Article here. Excerpt:

'In the weeks since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, we have heard quite a lot of "as the father of a daughter...", implying it takes the birth of a daughter for men to truly appreciate all the discrimination, harassment and assault women seem to be on about.

Now it seems the growing awareness of sexual assault on university campuses in the United States has seen the advent of "as the mother of a son...", implying that the mother-son relationship may have the opposite effect on women.

Last week, The New York Times featured an article chronicling the rise of Families Advocating for Campus Equality (FACE), a movement of hundreds of mothers who have come together to defend sons they say have been wrongly accused of sexual assault.'

Yeah, that's right. I forgot.

Yeah, that's right. I forgot. The accused are always guilty.[/s]
Leave it to the SMH to spin the article to imply that every single man accused of sexual assault is Brock Turner, that any one who dares defend the wrongfully accused is like Brock's parents, and that no man has ever successfully sued a university for wrongful sanctions brought against him.

Really quite pathetic. SSDD.
