Cults:  Males are tempting targets for cults and radical groups that abuse people. If you are considering becoming part of an unusual social group, please do some research so you will be able to recognize if you are getting yourself into an abusive situation. If you are with one of these groups you are most likely still being victimized.

Munchausen by Proxy is when someone is causing illness or injury in another to obtain attention; usually by a parent or caregiver against a child.
This normally happens to children who cannot yet speak, but there have been cases recorded with older children as well.  For more information on this syndrome, see the KidsHealth web site.
