VIDEO: "We have 3 key asks to better our nation": Grace Tame addresses the National Press Club | ABC News "I am not just an advocate for women. I am an advocate for all survivors of child sexual abuse, many of whom are male.

"We must preserve that nuance, every nuance, in our discussions. We cannot forget our boys, and we cannot forget out men — not only as welcome, equal participants in this ongoing conversation, and without ignoring many negative patriarchal customs — we cannot forget our boys and men who are fellow survivors of abuse.

"Yes, statistics say that perpetrators are more often than not men.

"Yes, statistics say that women are overrepresented in the survivor category.

"But statistics are not people. People are people — not political footballs, not disposable news items — people."
