This is a really important thread on the cognitive dissonance that exists around bullies & smear campaigns in the #domesticabuse sector. It’s an open secret that few are able to address openly because they fear being ostracised and even shut down by the inevitable smear campaign.
It’s something that I know many people in the sector have experienced and I also have personal experience. It is a conversation that others and I have had numerous times, over many years and it is an important issue. Why?
Because, how can you expect others to recognise abuse when you play a part in overlooking it?

This is the question that has been running through my mind and should really be running through the mind of EVERYONE who is involved in raising awareness and educating on #domesticabuse

I finally took an improv class at @SecondCityTO. It was super fun b/c the instructor let me observe rather than interact so I was able to learn a bunch of really useful info. Then came the angry abusive desk clerk who unloaded on me saying I'd been "aggressive this whole time"...
@SecondCityTO When I gave my credit card to pay, he refused to give it back because "collateral" then threatened to call the police. I have no idea what he was on but it was terrible. I told him he could us inclusivity training because he was treading in lawsuit territory. His response was...
@SecondCityTO ...to ask me what my disability was. I told him he couldn't ask that. He then asked the instructor if I'd been giving him trouble then proceeded to comment derisively on my stimming (I was trying to keep calm).

It was awful, y'all.

This is why we are at risk in the world.

#pleaseread Thread: Couldn’t understand why I could not sleep. I then realise that it’s four years ago to the very night that I hit my lowest point. I was in despair, borderline suicidal with no idea what to do or where to go. All because of an abusive relationship.
I was with my bully of an ex. He showed such narcissism that led me to believe that absolutely everything was my fault. I was never good enough. I’d been bullied so much that I’d lost over 20kgs in stress and fear in just over 12 months. I’d become a crumbling wreck.
He told me this night he debated leaving me as he didn’t find me sexy. I was ugly. That I didn’t do it for him anymore, and I believed it was all me. I wasn’t good enough. I was frozen. He still wanted sex but then berated me when I couldn’t do it. Too scared. Leaving me in tears

Cosas sobre el bullying que sólo sabe otra víctima de bullying y que no te contarán los expertos:

(Abro hilo)
001: Todo el mundo al que se lo cuentes, te dirá que todo se solucionará si se lo cuentas a otro.

¿No te lo estoy contando a ti?
002: Lo peor del bullying no son los actos de agresión en sí, si no el sentimiento de persecución que te acosa cuando no te están agrediendo.

“Si no me están pegando ahora, no sé dónde están, y eso me da más miedo”.

Media sosial itu banyak manfaatnya, terutama untuk ekspresi diri. Di sisi lain, #sekadarmengingatkan, media sosial juga bisa berdampak negatif, terutama mengganggu waktu tidur yang bisa merusak produktivitas kita, takut ketinggalan info (#FOMO) dan perundungan (#bullying).
kita dapat memenen positif medsos sekaligus menekan efek negatif dgn:
1/ Tanpa ponsel dan media sosial di tempat tidur. Jika masih ada pekerjaan terkait medsos , selesaikan sebelum tidur.
2/ efektif bermediasosial agar tak ketinggalan informasi dengan memanfaatkan menu #trending
3/ tegur teman yang melakukan perundungan (via DM saja). Laporkan ke platform jika mereka masih bandel. Kita perlu aktif Memerangi perundungan.
4/ follow akun-akun kaya ilmu

This is the face of #depression.
Today I'm going public in the hope that will help me to fight back.
No one can guess from that picture that I cried for hours that day and had dark thoughts.
It never stops.
#mentalhealth matters, even if not visible.
#MentalHealthAwareness 1/
No one can guess that I had to have medical leave and I am still followed by psychotherapists.
It's invisible, and I am good at hiding it until it becomes too hard. But don't be fooled by fake smiles.
Dig deeper. Listen. Be prepared to listen uncomfortable emotional stuff. 2/
It's been a year now, I begged for help and I realised now that it's hopeless and easier to discard victims than deal with #workplace #bullying. 3/

We need to talk

There's something that goes on in the #ActuallyAutistic community, a dirty little secret

Something we don't talk about

After all, perish that thought that we could be as guilty of treating each other badly as the non-autistics we criticise

/cont
It needs to be said, needs to be spoken about

No more pretending it doesn't happen, no more excuses

There's a #bullying problem within #ActuallyAutistic circles and people are getting badly hurt

It's not the ADW - forget about those nobodies. This is mainstream

/cont
We need to do better as a community

I'm not talking about calling out or tone policing - that kind of thing is rampant and part of the problem

I mean taking responsibility for the *effects* of our actions and not hiding behind "good intentions"

>>About Frank Parlato of Frankreport.com: Some people have asked me if I am a friend of Frank Parlato, a newspaper owner and blogger who first first broke the story of women being forcibly branded as part of the #NXIVM cult. In response, I must clarify details about this.
In fact, I am not an established "friend" of Frank Parlato, who is the publisher of frankreport.com, and The Niagara Reporter weekly newspaper. Frank is someone who I spoke with by telephone, about three weeks ago, who I respect very much. I will explain why. #NXIVM
Frank Parlato, as far as I was able to ascertain, is a well known publicist and journalist who has worked on political campaigns. I read that Frank spent years fighting to expose Keith Raniere, who is accused of branding and enslaving female followers of his organization, #NXIVM.

1/ Vancouver #DykeMarch website hacked (by a transwoman, apparently.) Website vancouverdykemarch.com is now offline. Problem is, when #transwomen take over women's spaces, they don't know when to stop. It was not enough to take over organizing the march. medium.com/@ms.liz.mars/c…
2/ It's not enough for trans-identified males to take over the march and kick out anyone who their spies identified as a #terf. Now they are going after those who did not do enough to forcibly remove #lesbians from #dykemarch.
3/ Next they will go after those who did not do enough to forcibly remove the ones who did not do enough to forcibly remove #lesbians from #dykemarch. Wait and watch.

i still don’t understand why #bullying is called bullying. i don’t understand why it isn’t called what it is - mental, verbal, emotional, physical abuse.
we educate people when they are young because that is when they are most like a sponge, able to absorb information.
we talk about how vital these early relationships are with family, teachers, community. because we are so open and vulnerable emotionally. raw. learning and developing an understanding of other people, ourselves and the connection between.
