NOSMV needs to make a poster. I'm sure some of us have taken up drawing or painting as a form of artistic expression. If you even do this as a hobby, why not send in a few dozen sketches for a poster or two?

Also, if you are a professional who works in a job that like a contruction worker, a fireman, police officer, a docter, a buisness owner or any kind of respected professional, why not send in your photo for a poster? It would be a great way to expose the truth and show that you are proud to be a survivor. Even now, i see a lot of us feel like we have to hide, but this cant go on forever. We have to stand up and let it be known that we can triumph over this and other men are not alone! I know a lot of you out there may be thinking your artwork isnt good enough, or that your just an amatuer, but make an honest effort anyways. It would be good just to send in some blank inspiring sketches without slogans, that way we could chose the type later. Even if you dont have much art experiance and just have some ideas, why not throw them on down? Every little bit helps.

Broken,
could not find site you mentioned:
"news and events. Look there to see what they are doing."
Could you post the site for it?
Thanks,
Thad

Hi Thad,
It is on the NOMSV home page News and Events. Mic Hunter is asking for pictures to put on a poster to raise money. He is asking for puictures of us at the age when we were being abused and then a present day picture--he is hopeing for pictures of men in the successful roles in life, e.g. a uniform, clerical garb, teaching a class etc.
I have a post on it called Mic Hunter--I think iit is at the page for announcements etc.
Peace to you1
Bob

Where is this Hunter coming from??? He wants to show how successful men are... after being sexually abused...how about the rest of us who are fucked? I just lost my job of 10 years after being harassed for two years for being sexually abused when I was a child...my boss told everyone that I was in a hospital for it..even before I got out! Oh yea..he does want a photo of a guy in jail! How the fuck does he think people will give money to SA Survivors who are all successful and don't need any help????

grow up eddie. charities need money to function, like it or not, and the poster is meant to show that incest can happen to anyone, and it doesnt mean you have to live your life in shame. Try not to take things so personal, mic hunter wrote the book "victoms no longer" he spends all his time working with survivors. Without him, there probably wouldnt even be a NOSMV for you to post at.

Actually. Mic Hunter wrote the book: ABUSED BOYS The Neglected Victims of Sexual Abuse.
The poster would be used to raise funds to support this next years conference. Conferences like this cost a lot of money, more than comes from people paying to attend.
This conference draws people who are determined to help all of us who are the victims of abuse. Some of us have been fairly successful in spite of the abuse--but at least in my case I am still in a lot of pain.
geteddie, I would see NOMSV becoming proactive in getting the word out about male sexual victimization, and that there is help and acceptance available.
I live in Milwaukee. About three years ago the Milwaukee Women's center received a grant and the contributed services of a first rate pr group. They made up a series of posters--I have some of them yet if you would like me to mail them to you. They had catchy phrases speaking to men who abuse women. They had poster sizes, they had billboards and they had them on just about every one of the county buses. At the bottom of the posters was a tear off sheet giving info as to where abused women can receive help through out the Milwaukee area.
Mic Hunter has a specific idea for the use of his poster. I think it is a valuable one. And, of course, it would have the pictures of a limited number of men. it is a poster, not a billboard.
The poster project that I would like NOMSV to seek a grant for, would be like the one the Milwaukee women's center had, probably without tear off sheets since there seems to be few places where men can get help from anyone who knows our particular problems.
I understand your anger and frustration. Your boss violated confidentially and I would think he could be reprimanded for it by his boss. I regret that it happened. At the same time, I know you a little from the chat room and I think you know that you are a real man, a good man, a courageous man, even if too many men, probably many who are themselves victims, get freaked out at the idea of male sexual victimization.It seems odd that this exists yet, after to outrage at the news that hundreds, thousands of boys have been abused by my fellow priests. I would think our nation, at least, knows that this is more comon than ever thought of before--and it includees, coaches, teachers and boy scout masters as well as clergy of other faiths as well.
I think that we who are adult survivors have a special passion to prevent and help the boys and teens who are being abused, probably some of them as I wrtie this and others read it.
Peace to your Broken, geteddie and to all of us.
By the way Abused Boys is a terrific book. Most libraries have it. I keep re-readin mine but if someone needed it and could not get it I would send you a copy. Just contact me at wheelock36@yahoo.com
who are bing abused

Well, currently being unemployed and still looking for a job, I don't qualify for the professional thing.

My wife has this mad idea that I'm good looking enough to be a model. I'm humouring her and letting a friend of hers take some pictures of me to send in to a modelling agency.
If by some bizarre turn of events they do want to use me for modelling work, I'll submit a picture to the poster.
