Well Done! Advocacy is a necessary step in our personal development and in our recovery. I too speak out when subjects marginalize and even tacitly approve sexual abuse.
I receive jokes weekly from a friend who is a minister. He is a good guy, and I am comfortable with him as a person. One day he sends me a joke about 'pony riding', an older woman and a minor male in a sexual situation. I respond to him that I am a survivor of sexual abuse and that if he needs to send that abuse supporting material, he does not need to email me anymore.
He responded with chagrin, he was very apologetic. He realized he was desensitized to this kind of material and that he would censor himself and make sure that never happened again.
Helping him to understand the ramifications of forwarding such abuse material is worth a million bucks! Keep up the good work, Ryan, and to all of us, speak out!
