Hi all,

Yesterday morning, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today show and made a rather foolish statement about how children who are abused "very often become abusers themselves". I am encouraging everyone here to contact both the Today show and Ms. Gifford to let them know that such statements, even when made innocently stigmatize victims of all forms of abuse unnecessarily.

I would be grateful if you would take a peek at the following thread, check out the clip form the show, and ask you everyone you trust to speak up about this.

http://www.malesurvivor.org/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=148793&page=1#Post148793

I have included more information, including contact info, in the thread

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Tartugas,

Thanks for posting this. I'm not able to get into the discussion board that often and I'm sorry this post didn't catch my attention until now.

If you or any other member comes across something like this in the future, please email me at my public MaleSurvivor address which is cstjohn@malesurvivor.org so I can try to get in contact with the right folks.

Thanks again-

Curtis

Thanks for being proactive on this. We tried to get the board to do something but they where all busey with getting the conference set up.

Glad to have you as our new President.

Tom

Curtis,

Another word of thanks on this one. We really do need people who can jump on these things when they arise. Once the iron goes cold, that's it - the opportunity is lost.

Much love,
Larry
