MaleSurvivor’s mission statement.

“We are committed to preventing, healing, and eliminating all forms of sexual victimization of boys and men through support, treatment, research, education, advocacy, and activism.”

Please note it states “boys and MEN” who have been sexually victimized.

Are we not part of the mission? Is it wrong that we ask to be included in the “advocacy” mission and not passively accepting being dismissed as too controversial? Why are our needs being referred to as a distraction from the important work of MaleSurviver and not subtly implying we are attempting to diminish resources dedicated to a more deserving segment of sexually assaulted males?

Balanced (My goal)

There is symmetry
In self-reflection
Life exemplified
Grace personified
