Tom,

I saw this while at work. It would help me to give a more pointed reponse if I could see a transcipt. I'll see what I can find, or if someone else can come up with something.

FOUND IT!

The segment is on child abuse, not speifically CSA. And the focus of the piece is on the statistic that 120 children a month die due to child abuse.

So the comment about those who are abused wind up growing into abusers themselves is spoken within the context of a discussion of phsical and emotional abuse. I make this distinction not because I feel any one kind of abuse is better than another or that those of us who are CSA survivors are to be in any way excluded from this discussion, but because if we come charging out of left field with cries of, "Untrue!" without appreciating and noting the context of the discussion, we might not get heard.

I don't think I can copy and paste the link to the clip here, because of the format.
In order to see the clip go to this link

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/12065856/

Then scroll down the page to the "More video from TODAY" section. Click in the "A National Day of Hope for kids" link to see the clip. The comment in question happens approximately 1 minute in to the clip.

I am going to work on writing a letter to Ann Curry, who made the comment, Kathie-Lee Gifford, and try also to find the email addresses for some of the executive producers over at the Today show. I think they need to hear from us, the VICTIMS, that being a victims does not automatically mean that you are going to become a perp. When I have the letter written I'll post a copy of it here. I will also post any contact info I can come up with.

Can anyone provide me with a quote that specifically address the truth that the overwhelming majority of abuse victims do not themsevles become abusers. I believ there's something in Lew's book about it, but I can't remember.

Thanks

Thanks for taken the lead on this. I will look at the clip whwn I get home from work. Think that this is in good hands. It is best that we handal this professional and I am not the one to do that when I am mad. There is something about it on the home page about the meths about csa. Tom

By the way, everyone -

PLEASE DON'T send any angry letters to Today. I'll post an example of something that I think would strike the right kind of tone. Let's channel our anger in dignified, courageous action. That will be much more effective.
