1/ (Thread) #TrumpTownHall & the video of #StevenCrowder's abuse gave me the courage to release audio from my marriage with Alex Jones.

TY, Daily Mail, for raising awareness about how #extremists use #DomesticViolence to control their prey. Article: Image
2/I shared the audio w my lawyers during my divorce & after. I begged them to use it while Alex Jones sued me for over 10 years, stealing my kids, harming & neglecting them while accusing me. They said it didn't matter.

I hope Hilary Crowder's trauma will matter in her case. Image
3/What really resonated w me was #StevenCrowder gaslighting Hilary & trying to get a reaction, while threatening her.. Alex Jones often did this to me. He harassed me daily and often hour to hour, then he would whip out a phone (or have one hidden) to try and record my reaction Image

Indian Court Can Entertain Complaint Against Domestic Violence Committed Abroad: Bombay High Court @AmishaShriv #BombayHighCourt #DomesticViolence…
@AmishaShriv the law makers were mindful of such a situation and therefore, Section 27 (of the DV Act) have been worded in this form: #BombayHighCourt #DomesticViolence
@AmishaShriv though the Domestic Violence Act extend to the whole of India as provided under Section 1 of the D.V. Act, the domestic violence caused on the foreign soil could also be taken cognizance by invoking Section 27 (1) (a) and (b): #BombayHC #DomesticViolence

Well done @jonstewart @TheProblem:

YES individuals are the problem
YES hatred is the problem
YES poverty & racism are the problem
But YES guns in the hands of people who want to hurt themselves or others is, most of all, the problem.

#gunviolence is a #publichealth problem.
There are lots of ways to change this.

One very important way: recognizing risk & acting on it.

This can be done BEFORE or AFTER someone has a gun. It can be done by family members, friends, healthcare providers, or (last ditch option) law enforcement.…
Another very important way: reducing the risk before it gets to an emergency stage.

This is about structural change. Teaching conflict resolution. Reducing substance use. And more.…

#MaritalRape thread.
Woke fake book throwers wont like this thread, because it is not based on emotion or perception, it is based on the reality lawyers and cops see everyday.
Domestic violence and sexual abuse laws in India are heavily and unfairly skewed against men.
I recently came across a POCSO case where 17 yrs 10 months old daughter accused her father and uncle of molestation. Defendants were jailed immediately, lost case in lower court .
Girl had a love affair that family objected to and she screwed them.
3/n #maritalrape #pocso
Mother's testimony , cross examination, five years of appeals and behind the scenes negotiations , finally the innocent accused walked free.
We see many many cases where wife accuses in-laws of dowry harassment, domestic violence, sexual abuse etc.

Why would any private (or public) university’s audited financial statements (consolidated or otherwise) and schedules of federal awards, including George Washington University’s, matter? Why even read them?

Well, for one, universities tend to include law schools… Image
(From a separate link, not with the main one):…

See its T.O.C.: This lacks an opening MD&A (Managmt Discussion & Analysis) but has Letter of Transmittal, the financial statemts (not that long), and — ALWAYS read, esp “Note 1” (above)— the “Notes.” Image
As it shows, there is more than one reporting entity, and interesting facts tend to surface. Like many urban universities, GWU also has involvemt with a hospital and substantial health care operations. I understand this should be — physicians and medical care professionals.. ImageImage

#OrangeTheWorld - A thread on reproductive control, coercion and entrapment 🧵

As a #trapped populations scholar, I have lately spent a lot of time thinking about reproductive #coercion, #control and #entrapment. (i)
The #familycourts appear to fail to understand, acknowledge and interrupt these dynamics of #coercivecontrol in their current system. (ii)
Many perpetrators of #coercivecontrol will already begin to put pressure on or introduce the idea of a child during the early love bombing phase. (iii)

Let’s talk about the chronic low self-esteem following a campaign of psychological and emotional abuse.

We live in a world that sees physical violence as harmful and psychological/emotional abuse as minor.

A significant reason is down to the fact that physical violence is easier to evidence and so, therefore easier to *SEE*.
And whilst this is true, it fails to understand and acknowledge the severe harm that is inflicted in the absence of physical abuse.

And it’s deep-rooted longevity.

Let’s talk about the trauma of not being believed.

Too many of us have personal experience of not being believed by a person we trust.

Or of going to the police to report a crime (domestic abuse, rape or assault, for example) and not being believed…
What is it like to go to someone you know and trust, or to report to someone who is supposed to protect you, and to be ignored, dismissed, not believed or accused of lying?

When I give talks on Zoom, I try to get a copy of the chat transcript to see reactions. Here are some examples from book talks I’ve given over the past year. #DomesticViolence
- “…This is so fucked up…”
- “what a joke” 也太搞笑了
- “my blood pressure has risen” 血压上来了
- “God, so sad” 天,好难过
- “So hopeless…it’s like this and you still can’t get divorced” 好绝望……这样还不让离婚嘛
- “Truly horrible, this is always the logic of denying divorce petitions” 真的太惨了,不判离婚的逻辑永远都是那一套
- “the plight of women is always ignored” 女性的处境始终是视而不见
- “beating up your wife and kids is no problem, much less beating up a judge” 打老婆孩子都能下得了手,打法官更不在话下

Today is Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse Day as launched by MANKIND INITIATIVE. Although at Break the Silence UK we are limited to the support we can offer, we do have our publication "Break the Silence - a Support Guide for Male Victims of Domestic Abuse"
This is available from our publisher, amazon and Waterstones. Not only has this been useful for male victims but also to professionals and family members.
"I can highly recommend Lee's book! As a male domestic abuse survivor myself, I found it to be an extremely accurate and fascinating read. Reading each chapter saying to myself 'yep, she did that' and 'yes, she behaved like that' and 'my god I didn't even realise that was abuse!

October is #DomesticViolence Awareness Month & neither @leezeldin & @EspositoforNY have yet to even acknowledge it

It makes sense I guess since @RepLeeZeldin voted against the Violence Against Women Act


#NoSurrenderNY ImageImage
Zeldin & Esposito’s silence is deafening - made even more so given that they claim to be running on a #BackTheBlue #ToughOnCrime platform

Given the increased danger LEO’s face in responding to DV calls & the extremely high rate of Officer Involved Domestic Violence

2/ ImageImage
& the Zeldin/Esposito campaign making distorted violent crime statistics first/ foremost, I think it’s time they faced questions regarding a real crime epidemic w/in #NewYork’s law enforcement community -

In one journal entry, Aiswarya Unninathan wrote, “He doesn’t know what love is”, while in another she said, “I hate my life." She also said, “he will kill me one day”🧵
26-year-old Aiswarya, who died by suicide in Kerala’s Kollam on Sep 15, 2022, had penned journal entries that reveal vivid, shocking and minute details of three years of #DomesticViolence by her husband Kannan Nair.
It was in 2019 that Kannan came across a photo of Aiswarya on social media and expressed his wish to marry her. “He was quiet, with a calm and patient demeanour,” Aishwarya’s mother says, adding that Kannan never let the mask slip.

“The agency took custody of her older children due to allegations of domestic violence between Soto and her previous partner.” This is likely code for, “she was a survivor of violence and the state took her children.” 🧵 #domesticviolence…
When people who are experiencing violence ask for help, due to #mandatedreporting laws, #childwelfare officials are called.
If they do not immediately leave, or seek an order of protection and/or pursue criminal prosecution, the survivor is accused of “failure to protect” her children from exposure to the violence that she is experiencing.

Long thread
Hi Everyone,
This is Kshitij Tarey.
I tried for long that these things should not come out in public. But now I am left with no option but to do this.
I am going through a very bad and violent divorce case.
I & my wife had a lot of troubles in our marriage due 2 her violent behavior towards me and our children.Eventually we decided to go for divorce mutually.When she talked to her family and friends, suddenly out of nowhere I was blamed for many wrong things.
3) including having an affair, demanding Piano as dowry and she started demanding huge money and what not.
Me & my wife have separated from Dec 2019 when her parents and her Brother & Bhabhi came to Mumbai and took my wife with them and leaving our twin children with me in Mumbai

1/. Tmw is the 1st anniversary of #Turkey’s withdrawal from the #IstanbulConvention on violence against women

The message it sent out - that men who violently abuse women can carry on with impunity - is dangerous

So what has happened over the last year?
2/. A year after #Turkey withdrew from the #İstanbulConvention, research by @hrw has revealed how women facing domestic violence are being failed

Restraining orders aren’t enforced

Women are face recurring violence & even murder whilst ‘under protection’
3/. “Every day we wake up to news of another woman killed by a lover, an ex, a husband or stranger”

At least 342 women were killed in #Turkey in 2021

In the face of escalating numbers of femicides the govt should have implemented the #IstanbulConvention!…

What actually happens when women are denied abortions, a 🧵 from a @UCSF study:
1/4 Denying a woman an #abortion creates economic hardship + insecurity which lasts for years: Abortion denial lowers credit scores, increases #debt, bankruptcies+evictions…
2/4 Women turned away from getting an abortion are more likely to stay in contact with a violent partner, increasing their risk of murder. They are also more likely to raise the resulting child alone. #IPV #violence #domesticviolence
3/4 The financial wellbeing and development of living #children is negatively impacted when their mothers are denied abortion. Carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term is associated with poorer maternal bonding, such as feeling trapped, resenting the baby.

🔶 On utilise ce terme pour désigner du harcèlement psychologique ayant recours au mensonge, au déni, à l'omission sélective ou à la déformation de faits dans le but de tirer profit de l'anxiété et de la confusion ainsi générées
#trauma #violencesverbales #violenceagainstwomen
🔶 Le gaslighting désigne une forme d'abus mental dans lequel un individu manipule la réalité pour faire douter sa victime de ses perceptions et de sa santé mentale. C'est une façon de priver la victime de gaslighting de libre-arbitre.

🔶 L'essayiste Patricia Evans a listé 7 "signes d'avertissement" du gaslighting
•Dissimuler des infos à la victime
•Contrer/déformer ses affirmations
•Minimiser l'info émise par la victime
•Violences verbales & moqueries
•Affaiblir socialement

The United States is an incredible statistical outlier among economically developed countries re guns per capita. 1/

This translates directly to another statistical achievement for our country compared to the rest of the developed world - a several fold higher chance of gun death. 2/

Ok. Time to break my silence on this, regardless of the potential avalanche of twitteric fury.

Domestic Violence rates will not crash, despite Osinachi's well publicised death.

Why? Because the women in #DomesticViolence settings are the primary perpetuators.
No one should force a woman to escape #DomesticViolence. No one should cry more than the bereaved.

When a woman is ready to leave a monster, she is ready to leave. Until then, everyone is wasting their time.

There are many reasons why women stay, most of them are bullshit. 👇
You protect a #DomesticViolence perpetrator when you are silent & don't cry out for help.

Tell someone.
Tell everyone.
Tell his family.
Tell your family.
Tell his employer.
Tell his Pastor or Alfa.

Let him be thoroughly embarrassed & humiliated.

Okay, listening into the #RHEA the Reproductive Health Equity Act testimony, and listening to folks that haven’t given birth or could have opinions about #reproductivehealth is just always disappointing and unnecessary.
This guy on this panel basically said “why does birth need to constitute a human right”, um, sir, what in the what? LIVING HUMANS don’t have human rights yet.
All this commentary coming to you is really actually inspired by @Justa_Jus ‘s incredible commentary 🤣
