I think I posted this somewhere but am having a "Seniors Moment"

I got off an email to the Editor of The Toronto Star (Canada's biggest daily). I made sure to say I was not a spokesperson or Representative but that I had joined and was just a guy healing from what 1 in 6 males suffer from. I also added my story and asked that they respect my privacy. ( cant spell annonymity)

I had a nice high anxiety level this afternoon as I called and spoke with the editor of our local newpaper. He said with MaleSurvivor being a national organization without local ties, the best way to get it in the paper was to write a letter to the editor.
I informed him of my SA, that I am a local connection, and that MS has been a great resource in my recovery. I gave him Richard Gartner's name and MS's phone number to use in regards to information about MaleSurvivor.
I should be getting a call from a reporter soon.

Now to keep strong,
Bill

Way to go brother. If enough of us speak out the message will fill the air.

Hey Roland: Dont give up my brother. Be a pest. Get in their face. Ask them if they are not interested in helping the 1 in 6 males it happens to. And that these boys are children of friends, relatives and co-workers. Or ask them if they are stuck in the same mindset of the Catholic Church or whatever Organization is stonewalling. You know. The Boy Scouts and things like that.

I for one refuse to let sexual assault be one of the very few great crines that is still in the closet.

I am kind of an asshole that way. I can rationalize no but I will not tolerate being ignored.
