When I was taking a criminal justice class in College we had to write about something criminal. I took it upon myself to learn what the long term effects of child sexual abuse were...since I was molested by my step father 22 years before. In preparing for this paper I ran accross a book called Betrayed as Boys: Psychodynamic Treatment of Sexually Abused Men. Guilford Press, 1999, 2001. by Dr. Richard Gartner. On the back of the book I saw that he was on the board of MaleSurvivor.org. Being that I have never heard of this organization I googled the name and signed up for a Weekend of Recovery that night. This weekend was in May and it is so difficult to explain how it has effected my life. All these years, I finally was able to meet other men who were abused like me. I was able to talk about my feelings and know that no one there would judge me. When I started a MLM business I have committed that 10% of all my profit will go to MaleSurvivor.org to help other men find their voice.
