* We here define intersectionality in utter independence to what is considered to be 'legally protected'.

This means there are a very large number of intersectionalities.

* Some types of intersectional Survivors are very common. To some extent (being Closeted is a spectrum concept or multilayered) a large majority of Survivors are also Closeted. Those of this intersectionality have almost no voice in the current world or in how the current world purports to change itself.

* Some types of intersectional Survivors have intersectionality with 'legally protected' characteristics.

Examples include Gay Survivors, Lesbian Survivors, Bi Surviors and Trans* Survivors. All four are covered by this helpline in the UK.

* Being a Male Survivor can be viewed as intersectional, because a) even many groups dealing with Survivors claim that such don't exist, or b) decline services to such. For now, you might read this.

* Being a Survivor whose abuser is female can also be viewed as intersectional, because many of these have to face a) as well.

Some examples of Survivors whose abuser is female include the following.

1) Lesbians who have been abused by their partner.

2) Men who have been subjected to non-nosensual act X after consenting to be restrained to participate in act Y to which they consented. E.g. they consented to being tied down for a spanking, only to be anally penetrated without consent.

3) The Survivor was prevented from resisting the abuse by means such as blackmail or being drugged, which are entirely independent of the relative sizes, strengths or genders of the indivduals involved. Some of the people who are spiked with GHB, say, have that done to them by a woman.

4) In some cases, the Survivor was lured or drugged by one individual for another to directly physically abuse, and the Survivor is entirely entitled to consider the both of them to be abusers. In some cases, then, the 'set up person' has been a woman. In some other cases, certain women have 'had another woman raped' whilst they themselves gleefully watched.

5) Huge amounts of emotional or psychological abuse can be received by anyone form anyone.

* As some of these cases make clear, (people who pass off as) members of the LGBT* or BDSM communities can indeed also be abusers. Anybody can be an abuser. Whilst relatively rare in practise, Trans*, Non-Binary, Queer, GenderFluid... individuals can also be abusers.

A common stigma c) is that 'members of (the/any/our) community can't possibly be abusers', by which many Survivors are silenced or ostracized.

Some Survivors consider that whichever of themself, their abuser or what their abuser did can be an intersectional matter. This is part of why a), b) and c), say, can be viewed as intersectional matters by Survivors.

Intersections with 'non legally protected' matters include the following.

A) The already mentioned matter of non-consensual acts occurring in the BDSM setting through a non-consensual individual being present.

B) Ace (Asexual) Survivors can have further issues.

C) Poly (Polyamorous) Survivors can have further issues.

D) Non-Binary, Genderfluid remain 'non legally protected'. Survivors who are Non-Binary and/or Genderfluid can face a number of further issues. Genderfluid Survivor appears to lie on the other side of the bound up to which the rest of the world provides support pages and helplines. Try LGBT helpines for now, perhaps LGBTQ specific ones. We'll write a page for you here, and then more pages concerning other types of Intersectional Survivor still lacking any webpages at all.
