If there’s anything time has proved, it’s that people have short memory spans when it comes to men being accused of sexual abuse and assault of boys and men. While the “Times Up” and “Me Too” movements have called many men out for their alleged assaults against women, not all men remain under a microscope. Not every man accused of inappropriate behavior receive what could be called “The Weinstein” or “Bill Cosby” treatment. Could it be that men who assault women are treated differently than men who assault other men, or even boys? That is a question many are asking as news reports state actor Kevin Spacey will soon return to the silver screen.
