Before I reply, I would like to thank Errol for posting this to
the UpDates List. I also want to thank Gildas Bourdais, Richard
Hall, Alfred Lehmberg, Stephen Bassett and Jean Meiners for your
comments. Although somewhat different, you were all supportive
and you seem to understand well the feelings we were trying to
express. I know the abductees who participated will appreciate
your comments as well.

Regarding Meiners comments: I did include three male abductees
on my list for the original question as to why they do not post.
One told me he "...didn't really know what to say and who would
care anyway?" and the other two did not respond at all.

I wonder if this could be interpreted to mean that male
abductees in general, may have a more difficult time going
public with this subject? I do not know the answer to that, but
I know there are a lot of male abductees we do not hear from and
I hope that changes soon.

In addition, three men responded to me off-list who said they
did not feel comfortable responding to my post publicly because
of the way their comments would be taken by others. And, two of
  these men, as far as I know, are not even abductees. Something
to think about perhaps?

Thank you again,

Katharina Wilson
