Hi all,

Yesterday morning, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today show and made a rather foolish statement about how children who are abused "very often become abusers themselves". I am encouraging everyone here to contact both the Today show and Ms. Gifford to let them know that such statements, even when made innocently stigmatize victims of all forms of abuse unnecessarily.

I would be grateful if you would take a peek at the following thread, check out the clip form the show, and ask you everyone you trust to speak up about this.

I have included more information, including contact info, in the thread

Thanks,
Chris
