Randy -

This SA board isn't a 'pissing' contest amongst survivors. I agree that Art Buchwald's story is VERY mild compared to most of the survivors who post here, like my husband, Getteddie, and obviously yourself; but he still experienced shame and terror at the hands of another.

Just like beauty being in the eyes of the beholder, Abuse is in the heart of the victim.

Possibly the attention Art Buchwald gets with the publication of this article will help bring about changes in society's attitude about SA.

Maybe we should find out his mailing address, tell him how SA has affected all our lives (survivors, spouses, family and friends)and he can tell the world about the HORROR of abuse. Maybe help us find a VOICE on a wavelength that reaches a larger audience.
