A picture of a cute smiling little boy with the caption:

"Tell him about sexual abuse,
Or let him experience it himself"

"I wish my parents would have taught me about sexual abuse,
so my abuser wouldn't have."

Thanks, I'm feeling very "in your face" about it lately.

LoS,

The idea is a good one, but I wonder how many people would wear such a T-shirt. It was interesting at the NY conference to see how participants reacted to the carry-bags they were given, with the "MaleSurvivor" logo on them. Some were okay about them, others were careful, outside the john Jay School, to carry them so the logo did not show. That old feeling of guilt and shame can stick with us!

Much love,
Larry

I actually wondered if malesurvivor.org had shirts etc, but then of course that was quickly followed with the fear of actually putting it on.

That fear and shame is very difficult to overcome.

I found an ally and another T-shirt idea:

"I was raped"

Anyone know if you had your own MaleSurvivor.Org shirt made up if anyone here would have a problem with it?

I think I'm getting to the point where I'd actually wear it!
