If your child has recently disclosed they have been sexually abused by a member of the family, and you're concerned that the consequence of standing up for your child will lead to schisms within your family unit…remember that the repercussions of standing up for yourself or for your children, is not your fault. The blame is always with the abuser. ⠀
⠀
However, if the breakdown of the family is your primary concern and that inhibits you from wanting to take a just stand…remember that when your child is hurt by someone in any capacity (emotionally, physically, sexually or spiritually), it is imperative they see their parents and family members stand up for them. For the sake of their self esteem and their ability to develop a strong moral compass, it is absolutely necessary for them to see what justice is, how that reflects on them and the world around them.⠀
⠀
On the other hand, if children are forced to coexist with their abuser to preserve the "unity" of family, be forewarned that the consequence of such a cowardly act can lead them down a lifetime of devastating choices.⠀

Jeg føler jeg burde lave  et positivt opslag om, at nu er der gået et år siden #metoo begyndte at rulle og hvor er det fantastisk hvordan alt har rykket sig! Men lige nu er jeg allermest irriteret. Over hvordan mange medier stadig liiige skal spørge 'er det ikke også gået for vidt?' Og hvad med alle de stakkels mænd, der konstant bliver anklaget for alt muligt de ikke har gjort? Gerne ved at give diverse irriterende typer, der ikke VED noget om problematikken, men som snakker heksejagt på mænd og mangel på retssikkerhed, tale tid.  Jeg MAGTER det ikke! Vold og seksuelle krænkelser mod kvinder er - dokumenterbart - et kæmpe problem. Både her og ude i resten af verden. Jeg er med på at vi står overfor et stort arbejde, hvis vi skal ændre de bagvedliggende strukturerer og *kulturen*, og at det kan føles både ubehageligt og svært at navigere i. Både for mænd og kvinder, og alt derimellem. Men at blive ved med, at dreje fokus tilbage på de stakkels mænd, fremfor at være rasende over, at alt for mange piger og kvinder bliver udsat for  seksuelle krænkelser,  er helt ufatteligt trættende. #endsexualviolence #rasende #gotohell #tryingtostaypositive #surfeminist #trætfeminist #angryfeminist #feminist #kritiskpynt

Here’s a shitty live recording of an excerpt of DEAD GIRL from my apartment. Check out the music video later today when I release it on YouTube. **trigger warning in regards to lyrical content for those who are survivors of sexual abuse** “I went down
Where the living dead kids live in slums and sewers
I went down
To the hidden cellars of sex traitors
I went down 
Where the girls were treated like less than filth
I went down 
And saw your mother suffering

I went down
Where the girl got raped and then blamed for it
I went down
Where the newscast said they felt sorry for him
I went down
Where she choked herself in a mouthful of pills 
I went down
Where they lay her body”

Using telemedicine to treat sexual assault victims: A telemedicine program that helps small hospitals treat sexual assault victims is gaining favor in Pennsylvania. Through the telehealth platform, nurses in rural and remote hospitals and clinics can train to become forensic Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) or connect in real-time with a trained SANE provider when a patient visits the health system.

On the other side of pain is Joy..

Through our distress we discover what we're made of; we learn how to notice our strengths.
Using our new found energy to power through the tenderness of our internal wounds creates a potpourri of abilities we knew nothing of.
Knowing, truly believing, we are worthy and capable of pushing through our pain enables joy to find us.

Be Strong.
Be Joyful.

Some men are upending domestic violence laws so that their wives (who are the true victims) are arrested, prosecuted and even sentenced as abusers.

Consent  has always meant and will always mean the same thing: Permission, approval and agreement.
.
.
A common argument we hear from the perpetrator is that “they were unsure” of what the victim meant when they said “No”
.
There is absolutely no way “NO” can be translated to yes or maybe. As long as there is no express or verbal consent, it is a NO

One year ago I screenshot this post from @laura_mckowen 's Instagram and one year later I couldn't agree with it more.  Settling in to my "new" job I started about 5 months ago and am already training others and giving short trainings at staff meetings; I am finally in the type of relationship I want and know I deserve with someone who wants to support my happiness,  and I want to support her happiness for (almost) 7 months; my room is a mess because I am in the middle of moving in with my date-mate to a new area that I enjoy being in.  So much is different and I wouldn't change a thing.  I have so much appreciation for this life because of the struggle I faced.  Let a new life happen to you. (Laura McKowen's page is so inspirational and pushed me on the days I wasn't sure I could keep up all the hard work.  Grateful.  Grateful.  Broken open and grateful.

The University of Calgary joins the #IBelieveYou...Now What? discussion as they talk about the positive impacts of the campaign and the #MeToo Movement.

https://youtu.be/3ewcF7j0exY

#IBelieveYou has set out to change the way the public—mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and family—responds to someone who has been sexually assaulted. As survivors feel safe to tell, more are coming forward to get help, report, and de-stigmatize this crime. Over the past three years, our campaign has increased the number of Albertans who would give a positive, compassionate response to a sexual assault survivor from 21% to 77%, and the number who would use the words I believe you from less than 1% to 21%. This is a tremendous shift in a short time.

Being vulnerable can be frightening, but it can also be enlightening. 
Whether it is speaking your truth for the first time or many times over, that decision to be real, may well be one of the most courageous thing you ever do.
.

Sharing our stories is painful at best and sometimes it's just plain grueling. But by giving others an inside look at who we are and what we've been through opens up our perspective as well.
This openness gives us a chance to inventory our emotions and discover where we are mentally and physically.
Yes, being open about our past can lead to disbelief by others, but that skepticism can build our stores of strength. 
This hardiness growing within creates the courage to stand up and be seen for who we are. .

We are survivors full of tenacity and toughness.
We are courageously vulnerable.
We are powerfully brave.

Share the Love! ❤️

Sexual consent is an agreement to participate in a sexual activity by two consenting adults. Before engaging in sexual relations with the individual , you need to know and be sure they want to engage in similar activities.
.⠀
.⠀
Both parties  must agree to sex relations with each other— every single time — for it to be consensual. Both parties must be conscious and awake , not under the influence of alcohol or other substances and must both be of legal age. 
Without consent, sexual activity (including oral sex, genital touching, and vaginal or anal penetration) is sexual assault or rape.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Consent is never implied by things like your past behaviour, what you wear, or where you go. Sexual consent is always clearly communicated — there should be no question or mystery. Silence is not consent. And it’s not just important the first time you’re with someone.⠀
Lack of consent = Rape⠀

Ending sexual violence requires a shift in the attitudes of individuals and in community attitudes that allow violence to be excused, justified or condoned.

________
These victim blaming attitudes play into the myths that surround sexual assault and, crucially, make it difficult for survivors to feel comfortable disclosing their experiences.

What is #impunity? How is it related to #sexualviolence in #SouthAsia?

Activist and researcher #VGeetha breaks it down for us in this remarkable study from the Zubaan series on Sexual Violence and Impunity in South Asia. ‘Undoing Impunity’ outlines how the state, at the times when it has commissioned acts of impunity (and there have been many), has consequently chosen to mediate #publicmemory and manipulate/force forgetting as a convenient escape, rather than actually taking responsibility for its acts and for the pain these have caused. As a result, the hurt of its people has been papered over with routine government procedures.

In the book, written as a single and consistent argument, V Geetha envisions a ‘shared humanity’ where the state and its citizens come together to recognize the suffering of survivors and victims of sexual violence. While this may or may not produce legal victories, it an essential first step towards securing justice: acknowledging that the pain of one citizen is not their burden alone, but is our collective responsibility.

In other words, impunity is not merely a legal or political riddle; it is, first and foremost, a lack of compassion, empathy and regard on the part of state personnel for its citizens, especially women.

ADVANCING ADVOCACY ON GENDER BASED VIOLENCE ONLINE.

The Forum on Internet Freedom in Africa 2018 that took place in Accra, Ghana provided an opportunity for various stakeholders to probe how some social norms, including language, culture, and religion are fuelling and increasingly normalising gender-based violence and hate speech especially against women online.

As is often the case, when gender based violence conversations come up in any fora, the first admission is always that women and girls are the most affected group. This is largely due to the inequalities that exist in society where women are perceived and treated as inferior to men and confined to the role of “helper” while the men are automatically assumed as “leaders”

As I walk my healing journey, I've found there to be many contrasts.
There are daily conflicts to conquer and accomplishments to celebrate.
At times I struggle to see my victories and get stuck in the battle.
It seems like a never ending cycle of discord.
.

As survivors we need to find the balance between conflict and victory.
The war within us may likely be life long, so we truly need to recognize our successes.
Those achievements create strength, strength we need to continue the battle.
.

Find your balance
Find your strength
Find your peace
Find yourself
.

Share the Love!❤️

TW: Sexual Assault
.
Four — I remember laying on my teenage cousins bed and crying, staring at his Darth Maul poster. My mom confirmed it later, when she told me she was surprised I was so comfortable around him considering what had happened when I was little. 
Fifteen — the boy I liked pushed me up against a tree and left me dirty, crying, naked and alone in the woods. No one at school believed me until he tried to hit me at a party when I drunkenly confronted him, and my friends had to hold him back. 
Sixteen — an adult man who added me on Facebook promised to take me to my favorite science museum, but we just ended up in his hotel room. I didn’t realize until I was much older how taken advantage I was by someone who was an adult. 
Seventeen — I became extremely close with my twenty three year old cousin when I was sixteen. Nothing seemed wrong with his daily calls and texts for over a year until he came to visit when I drunkenly fell asleep and woke up with him on top of me. I cried and made it out from under him, locking my door before crying myself to sleep. For the rest of his visit, I begged my friends to stick around and make sure I was sober and safe before leaving. The moment that they left, he forced me to drink a drugged gin and tonic. I don’t remember much. When I confronted him he said that I had wanted it, and I that no one would believe me if I told. I haven’t been to a family event since. 
Eighteen — a boy at a party let me cut him in line for the bathroom, then followed me in and locked the door. He forced me down, but I started to scream until my friend broke the door down. 
Twenty one — a supervisor at camp — my favorite place in the world — ripped off my favorite dress and didn’t listen as I bled and cried and begged for him to stop. The next summer he was fired for sexually harassing a sixteen year old counselor that I supervised, and I thanked her for doing what I couldn’t. I still can’t shake the guilt that I could have prevented it if I’d reported it sooner. .

My anxiety often makes me feel I’m right on the edge 🤸‍♀️. The feeing of your throat closing up and the racing thoughts never gets any easier. And there’s no amount of essential oils or face masks that can bring me away from that feeling 😬of bottomless dread, of the voices in my head telling me I’m completely out of my element. I used to be someone who has been ashamed of going to therapy, like there was something wrong with me. But now, i look at it as an opportunity to take charge of my life. 🙌 To bring everything back into focus, like putting on a pair of glasses. 🧐Sometimes, you need a thought adjustment. 
This week, I am proud to say i got back into a therapy routine. And there’s something so good about having a cry out about all my feelings with a total stranger. It’s incredibly... well therapeutic. 😂 And there’s no shame in sharing that you go! 
Some of you send me DMs that I have it all figured out. And guys, I hope not, because I’m 25.5 years old and I’ve still got a lot of life to live and a lot of mistakes to make. I’m not perfect. Having a therapist to help manage my anxiety is an incredible privilege that I am so grateful for. I promise that, if you are ashamed that you might need someone, that’s it’s ok to seek help. You’re not alone. #thecuttingveg .

Owning our narrative
Healing at our own pace
Through our pain we live
Though it's not a race
.

Our stories we share
The silence too long
In taking much care
We've become strong
.

Different paths we take
With peace to find
Much is at stake
When calming the mind
.

The journey is yours to plot
Wander as you might
Lost you are not
As you find your light

Feel the fear and do it anyway, because freedom is on the other side of fear. 🧐 Recently, many changes have occurred in my life and the lives of many others...mainly because I woke up to the things that I have not realized as truths...and sharing my truth has been one of the scariest steps I’ve had to take in my life, but I know it’s for the greater good...and everything will be okay 💕  Also, I have been wanting to go back to work in the VAW sector, alongside running an online business, so I went outside my comfort zone and interviewed for a French position at a Women’s shelter... despite my poor French skills from years of working in English settings...and it was hands down one of the best interviews I’ve experienced.  Had I let my fear get in my way I would have reaffirmed my weaknesses instead of focusing on my strengths and abilities. 🤔 So, what fear is holding you back from actually experiencing freedom? ✨ Feel the fear and do it anyway...your future self will thank you for it!  #feelthefear #freedom #youareworthy #alliswell #happiness #gratitude #consciousness #fearless #showupforyourself #shecandoit #violenceagainstwomen #endsexualviolence #supportwomensshelters #sexualassaultawareness #riseup #happiness #mompreneur

👆 Das hier! 👆 Der Mythos der falschen Beschuldigung bei sexuellen Übergriffen lebt und gedeiht. Dabei sollte man lieber mal darüber sprechen, dass auch Männer vergewaltigt werden und sich sehr selten trauen, überhaupt darüber zu sprechen. 😣 #endrapeculture #believesurvivors #rapecultureisreal #feminism #feminismus #stopsexism #metoo #himtoo #endsexualviolence

We're turning the campus purple to raise awareness of dating and domestic violence. This weeklong campaign begins Monday with a flag-raising ceremony during the free period and a candlelight vigil at 7:30 p.m., both at the Campus Center. #RUC_TTCP

Releasing the video for my Favorite song DEAD GIRL this week! Here you see part of the heavily painted eye of the dream demon character, a character which is supposed to represent the inner demons that people carry with them. Individuals who have experienced sexual abuse know that the aftermath includes having to face a lingering darkness within, one that leaves victims wishing for death. This is why it’s so important to work towards awareness, ending victim blaming, and creating a world where people with this type of trauma get supported in the ways which are necessary for healing. Be sure to listen to the song and check out the video. Also, get out and vote for someone who is going to make a difference in combating these issues. #newvideo #feministanthems #endrape #endsexualviolence #believesurvivors #punk #punkcabaret #experimentalmusic #musician #toronto #torontomuaic #torontomusician #torontoart #feminism #feminist #dark #darkness #goth #gothic #gothicpiano #newmusic #musicvideo

"Women disapprove of Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a 23 point margin, 58 percent to 35 percent."
We marched. We organized. We supported each other. We made our voices heard. We centered the voices of survivors. We're not going away. Shame on the Senate for disregarding us.

For years... I was trapped in an unhealthy marriage due to his manipulative, possessive, controlling and abusive behavior towards me.

I had always been forced to portrait as a happy wife in the public view.

If you had meet me before, is liking you labeled me as an antisocial person, however, I wasn’t antisocial because I wanted too (I am the absolutely opposite of that! I am a warm and caring person) I was antisocial because I was threaten daily in my marriage. Socializing with others was a threat to my husband and he would use the children as leverage and threaten me by disappearing the children if I ever proud light of abuse.

I couldn’t scream for help! I felt hopeless, invisible 😶

I want to yell “Mom, Dad, help me out of this ugly situation!!” I felt as I was mute 🤐

I was so afraid of him because how he had never been convicted of domestic abuse from prior assaults and violent attacks.

My relationship with a sociopath, narcissistic, possessive and abusive man may be one of the most disturbing, traumatic and reality challenging experiences I will ever endure.
