"Hollywood actors speak of 'rampant' problem of male abusers targeting men
Speaking out in the wake of an allegation of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey,
male actors say abuse against boys and young men is ‘taboo’ but ‘pervasive’"
"[Lawyer Gloria] Allred said it can be especially difficult for gay actors in Hollywood to
come forward with harassment claims if they are not open about their sexuality.
“Many of the victims are still in the closet. That makes them extra vulnerable,” she said,
adding, “It’s fear that keeps them silent … They feel they just won’t be believed against
the denial of a rich powerful famous celebrity.”"
