Levine accuser says male victims get ignored

Chris Brown, professor of music at the University of Minnesota and one of the whistle-blowers on James Levine, has been talking to the New York Post.

He says: ‘Because the movement happened to get its start with women only, in a way it furthers my loneliness as a past victim… Men are historically considered the bad guys. If some men abuse women, then we all are abusers ourselves … so therefore when it comes to our being abused, we deserve it.’

Brown is a former principal doublebass with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra.
