Mods, feel free to move Off-Topic if you're inclined.

About Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins. Not directly related to CSA but, as men, a shared conundrum I think is a good read for suvivors and those who support them:

Lancer,

It would be easy to dismiss this sad story as that of just another egocentric celebrity athlete who couldn't control himself. But its worth our stopping and thinking about what we as men (gay, straight, or whatever) stand for.

With all our focus on our CSA and recovery, we forget that there's more to life than that. Love, caring, compassion, helping others, making the world a better place, being there for someone in need. None of it sounds very "manly", but at the end of it all, its all we leave behind us in this world.

Jude
