Well done, your tenacity worked. Im sure it was because you did not hold back when you told them the story. You are a star to all of us. You represented all of us on the show. Oprah has a big following here, she has a all girls school that she has built and is friends with Nelson Mandela. Tyler Perry sounded like a real jerk, hogging the limelight.
I think that famous people and celebrities can help to focus the media on male sexual abuse issues. Their abuse is the same as everyone here, but by using their position that can remind other men that they are not alone. In South Africa we need a true homegrown leader with a high profile, an entertainer, a sportsman or a politician to come forward to break the silence and show that is does happen in Africa.
This subject is still taboo in our culture, but as the South Africa saying goes "The only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time" South African Male Survivors Of Sexual Abuse will be bringing Mike Lew to the country in September, to train professionals, run healing workshops and he will be the guest speaker at Africa's first conference on male sexual abuse.
