To you who want to help MS, here is a simple suggestion that I believe would help a lot.
Without having to identify yourself as a survivor, you could write to your local newspapers a simple announcement such as this:
To the Editor:
The sexual abuse of boys and men has been very much in the news the past two years. You may be surprised to know that there is a national organization that tries to help male survivors of childhood and adult sexual abuse, and help protect boys and men from abuse today.
MaleSurvivor.org provides a discussion board, a list of therapists for each State, and an array of papers to explain and assist boys and men who have been sexually assaulted as well as the family and friends of these good men.
If abused men and boys want to get help with the effects of their sexual abuse, or a family or friend needs advice, you can either go to the website at: http://www.malesurvivor.org,
OR call the hotline at---(can't find this number just now)--or write to--(the WDC address.)
If this appeared in only a couple of dozen papers it might help men who are still suffering in silence, and it would get our name and website out to a lot of people who most likely do not know we exist.
That is just a thought--you guys can write a better letter than that, AND you do not need to identitfy as a survivor. Many papers allow you to be anonymous if you ask for that.
