Some good discussion of this issue on a blog I often read (though not typically agree with). The reader comments include color commentary from survivors.

I don't know who one of the posters on the blog is...but he linked to MaleSurvivor.org. Even before I saw that, I recognized that I very much identified with his perspective. Not to call anyone out of course....but I appreciated the input. Aside from that, I appreciate the generally well-constructed thoughts regardless of how they square with what my perceptions are. That said, buyer beware---there are plenty of ignorant dolts who "have it all figured out" for the rest of us. mad

while there are some intelligent comments there,
there are some deeply offensive and ignorant ones as well.
i had to stop reading because i was being triggered repeatedly by the dissemination of disinformation.
i think i made it through about three insulting posts before, unfortunately,
i was unable to refrain from sending my own message.
it remains to be seen whether they publish my response.

Nor could I, VV- very triggering, as did the suicide note turn out to be.

my apologies, ThisMan.
it is intense, but i believe he is speaking from his (broken) heart. as such, i felt compelled to post it here on his behalf, although he did not "survive" his ordeal, and i cannot condone his choices. i condemn them. his story only confirms the necessity of disclosure and clearly demonstrates the value of this website (ms.org) and the healing power of peer support.

sorry for offending anyone.
