A major celebrity coming forward helps all the other silent victims realize that its okay. It raises awareness of the issue and hopefully helps other victims.

It also raises awareness that coaches can be predators, and that we need to be more vigilant in looking at who is involved with our kids.

It further raises awareness about the lack of harsh penalties in the Justice system. 3.5 years for the assaults on Kennedy and another kid (who is still anonymous AFAIK), when James was convicted in 1999.
