What Lloydy says is right on target. Of course I'm saying that from the U.S.
But you're both right, abuse knows no boundaries. (That's true in a lot of ways...) So advocacy & action on behalf of the abused must also know no boundaries against abuse.
IMNSHO Male Survivor is the organization with by far the best opportunity to unite & spread advocacy & action on behalf of & with male survivors around the world.
And if MS is to become more international, then our membership must also become more international. Otherwise we will have trouble knowing what's going on & what we can do beyond U.S. borders. We will also lack the funding from other countries necessary to carrying out our mission there.
I envision MS being able to help form male survivor groups, retreats, & conferences all around the world. Maybe I'm a dreamer, but it's a nice dream...
Mark, it would be my privilege to welcome you into membership in MS.
Like Lloydy said its well worth it. I already think so after just a couple of weeks.
I'm not sure if you can use a debit card or not. If you contact MS I'm sure they'll find a way to help you pay!
Take Care Mark
