OK GUYS!!!! I FOR ONE AM TOTALLY PISSED OFF AT ALLL THE CRAP THAT I SEE ON TV, READ IN THE PAPER AND HEAR ON THE NEWS ABOUT SEXUAL ASSAULT. i DO NOT SEE ONE DAMNED THING ABOUT THE PERVASIVNESS OF THIS FOUL EVIL. JUST SENSATIONAL SHIT THAT SELLS WHATEVER THE PRODUCERS ARE HAWKING AT THE TIME.

I SAY ENOUGH OF THIS. IT IS TIME WE HAD A COHESIVE AND STRONG VOICE THAT WILL NOT LET SOCIETY CONTINUE THE WAY IT HAS IN THE PAST.

Every one of the brothers here is at some point on the continuum of healing to becoming who they were meant to be. And god knows how many of our brothers live in quiet or destructive shame and destroy their lives and also the untold numbers that have not been able to continue on on this earth.

Why is that. WELL I KNOW WHY. It is because society continues individually. You are a man you should have not let that happen. or Why did you take so long to tell anyone. or All you guys really want is money. or Why do you have to screw up the status quo.or Hey you were just sowing your wild oats and it was a learning experience. or It had to be your fault because you are gay. or probably the worst one
Quote:
That could not have happened. you are making it all up. they go into denial

Not only society has done this to us. So have the GD PERPS
IS IT ANY WONDER THAT WE HAVE HAD AND CONTINUE TO HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH OUR HEALING.

I think it is a miracle that we are as far along as we are.

We need a strong voice because as individuals we are like feeble voices in the wind.

AS FAR AS I CAN SEE THERE IS ONLY ONE ORGANIZATION THAT CAN BE OUR VOICE AND IT IS RIGHT HERE. MALE SURVIVOR CAN BE THE INSTRUMENT OF CHANGE

AND THE WAY TO DO IT IS TO MAKE IT STRONG. ALL HERE PAST AND PRESENT SHOULD JOIN TO HELP WITH THE FUNDING IF YOU CAN. AND EACH AND EVERYONE OF US SHOULD, WHERE POSSIBLE, ADVOCATE THE SITE AS A PLACE OF HEALING AND TOGETHERNESS IN ADDITION TO THERAPY AND AS A UNITED FRONT TO FACE THE WORLD.

THE REACH OF MALESURVIVOR IS GLOBAL BY VIRTUE OF ITS WEBSITE.

I have found that my healing accelerated by giving more than I got. It gives me a sense of self worth that I never had. Now I really dont care how little that any brother does as long as it is something.

I think the President FRED TOLSON and the other board members can give us guidance with this.

You will note the brochure on the home page Entitled. YOU CAN HELP.
It can be as little a thing as leaving them at your therapists office or giving them to the local school boards and leaving them at places where people congregate.


I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING. IF WE LET SOMEONE OR SOMETHING ELSE DO IT FOR US NOTHING WILL HAPPEN . PERSONALLY I WILL NOT TOLERATE THE STATUS QUO ANY MORE.

I have reached a stage in my life at 63 of being fairly at peace with myself and have some self respect and I want each and every one of us to reach that state also, young and old alike.

I WOULD LIKE MY EPITATH TO READ . WE THE BROTHERS HAVE MET THE EVIL AND IT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO HIDE BECAUSE OF THE COLECTTIVE EFFORT

Mike.....

Man, you have a lot of miles left.....you are so right, sir.


EMAIL SUBJECT:
7 Can Help Online Form

BUSINESS:
sexual assault

MESSAGE:
Are there any legal options / avenues reporting a sexual assault that
occurred in Omaha , NE. in 1979. I know that is a life time ago, however.

I know that the statues have expired.

My perpetrators name was Tom Harrier, 125 38th St., Omaha, NE. Address
in 1979.

I believe he relocated to Hawaii.

I am the survivor.

back in 1979. I talked to few doctors, a lawyer and a police
friend....no one suggested to report it ; basically his word against mine.
an embarrassment as well towards me.

Yes, I was drugged, unconscious, and he was performing oral sex . he
stopped when I regained consciousness and I was shell shocked. I regret
not filing charges and stomping this individual.

I would like to put this behind me.


Please pass on this to your victims and survivors that the fault/blame is
never theirs and do report any sexual assaults against them. I feel
healing and getting back on track with life would be greatly accelerated
without self blame and self destruction.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Emailed to channel 7-------in Omaha, NE.

You are right, screw the statues........

Mikey,

The shit in the news lately has gotten me so sick the tube is off and the papers are unopened. I was spending far to much time getting up to turn the t.v. or radio off or change channels. This from a news junkie.

All they were doing is ticking me off.

Time to get out there and kick some media a$$, and show them what is what and what is the bull puckey they put on.

Bill

The greatest evil than anyone can do is remain silent when evil thrives.

Dammit, I am SO SICK of this shit too!

All the media likes to do is use SEX to sell. If it's abuse, so be it. If it's sexualizing CHILDREN to make this garbage OKAY in the minds of these perverts, I guess that's acceptable too. Anything for GodMoney.

I may not be able to do much, but I'm going to do something. If I can save ONE person from abuse or the shame of abuse, then it's worth it.

A pamphlet. That's what I'm going to do first.

Then, find myself an organization and get myself a job as an advocate. I'd do it for free, but I need cash and I'm willing to earn it doing something I NEED to do.

If I have to go public, so be it. I have NO REASON to hide.

Thank you, Mike, for putting this into words.

Peace and love,

Scot

I like what you say Mike, of how the evil has no where to hide because of the collective effort. I am not sure what to say of the rest of it, it was rather intense to read for me right now. But I do wish to be part of the solution, never the problem. Thank you.

WHat you say is true Mike. I believe society is in denial that it really happens, and the way the news reports it definately skews the public perception. I wish there was a way we could change the press, perhaps in time we as a group can, I hope so, for anyone else who is abused so they don't have to suffer through seeing what the news says.

Mike,

Thanks.Thats all i can say.I am appalled at the publics reaction to our hideous reality.It is good to be yourself and let others feel the weight of who you really are.we really are all the world has to educate them about how deep and far it goes.
