#metoo – its not just women that are sexually abused

#metoo Many boys have been sexually assaulted too, mostly by men but sometimes, as I know from my professional practice, by women. Mr Hugh-Jones, Junior Latin Master at Marsh Court School in about 1957, made me sit on his lap and cuddled me. When I felt something large and hot rising beneath me I struggled and fled. He then blackened my name with the School. I never told anyone, because I knew that adults did not believe kids and I would end up worse off. A narrow escape but it helped me to empathise with many women and children in my career as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist – and hopefully believe and help them.
