15 yrs ago, while hiking on my own, I was violently assaulted & raped. Every anniversary, I go for a solo hike to remind myself I can still do it, that there is great beauty to be found, even after trauma. Here’s today’s hike. And my essay I always post 👉 ImageImage

🧵1/8 Let’s recap the major conspiracy theories passing their six month expiration date over the last two weeks and are suddenly no longer misinformation. And, what do you call it when something that was officially misinformation is now just “information?” #fact
2/8 The #Wuhan lab leak: having received support from FBI Director Chris Wray and now the US Senate. Remember in 2020, Fauci and Francis Collins were so concerned about “lab leak” misinformation they organized a secret media campaign to discredit anyone who promoted the idea.
3/8 Oh, and lest we forget, it was a hate crime — “racist” — to blame the Wuhan Flu on Chyna.

But not now!

Some personal news. I am no longer a @BCCancer patient. I was released from my amazing oncologist’s care today, to go out in the world and be healthy. I cried a lot. Such a relief I cannot even explain. #cancer #NED #survivor #endcervicalcancer Image
Also, I made it through four years of cancer patienting and never met @VancityReynolds so I now I'm actually crying tears of sadness. My chance is gone.
I am so blown away from all the love. I didn’t expect it to hit me so hard in the feelings. It was a roller coaster day that ended with learning that a kid I’ve been cheering on died. Cancer sucks. He had cancer three times in his young life. Consider donating to @bccancerfdn ❤️

I'm seeing a lot on the TL about #Survivor's policy on prescription meds. There are a lot of misconceptions and half truths about contestants being "forced" to stop taking necessary meds. Based on my experience, that's not the case. 1/
I took armodafanil on the island. It's the definition of a Survivor PED. It helps you stay awake. It improves focus and alertness. It doesn't suppress my appetite, but it does impact metabolism. 2/…
I've heard a lot of stories about people who went cold turkey off of serious meds while on the show. Some of these stories are linked to well-known medevacs. But, afaik, none of these people were "forced" to stop taking necessary meds. 3/

The holiday season is a time of celebration and a chance to reconnect with family and friends, but it can also present challenges for some survivors of sexual assault.

Perpetrators of sexual violence are usually someone the victim knows.

This is especially true for those who have experienced child sexual abuse. For survivors, holiday gatherings may mean facing painful memories, feelings of anxiety, or a chance of repeated harm.

Large gatherings can also make it more difficult for survivors

if someone who hurt them in the past will be around them. Fortunately, there are ways to help survivors feel safe as they plan for holiday gatherings.

“Each survivor’s experience and healing process is unique, and for some people,

THREAD For #IWD21 please take 5 mins to read & share Gaia's story. Gaia loved #InternationalWomensDay & she should be here celebrating it with us. Instead our bright, brave and beautiful star 🌠 has become part of it. 🌹 #JusticeForGaia #InternationalWomensDay #RapeJusticeNow Image
We are a family fighting for answers about what happened to our girl who went missing on 7 November 2017 when she was 19 yrs old. 🌹 Eleven days later, her body was found. The coroner found she’d died of hypothermia. We call it a death by indifference...
Gaia was bright, brave, kind, creative and fiercely loyal to those she loved. The challenges she faced as a young woman living with #epilepsy & as a #survivor of sexual violence inspired her to pursue a career in health and social care. 💞 She wanted to dedicate her life to...

Today was stressful & hard. It was emotional. I broke down in tears along side my volunteers & a young mother of two, who felt like her world was ending. She wanted to save her children from what she's had to endure.
She didn't want to end up a statistic. She chose to leave a volatile living situation & move to a safe place where she began the process of living for herself & living for her children.

She chose life not abuse. She chose her kids over her partner. She chose smiles over tears.
She told all of us that she had been planning for over a year to leave & was on the verge of leaving when #Covid19AB happened.

She was scared/afraid/had panic attacks not knowing how to help herself let alone her children. Then she saw us on @GlobalCalgary with @global_leslie.

“I’m not going to publicly name the business for obvious reasons, but a store manager called me back after thinking over the facts I shared with him.. I’m allowed to come in to buy a new couch #mask free! My current couch is making my #migraines worse, I can’t hold out any more.
I am so relieved!! Kind & decent humans do still exist. Don’t be afraid to advocate for yourself, even if you tremble as you do so.”

•Title III of the #ADA requires that businesses provide reasonable accommodations for those with #disabilities.
•The governors orders (not laws) say those who can medically tolerate a mask must do so.
•Why did corporate tell you to have designated hours for elderly & disabled shopping? Perhaps that is when you’re suppose to let said people come in?

【日英対訳】宇佐崎しろ氏「アクタージュ読者の皆様へ」Translation of Usazaki Shiro's statement: "To the readers of #ActAge,"|2020.8.24| @tkatsumi06j #note… Now with bilingual introduction to add some context. #MeToo #WeToo #GropingIsSexualAssault
In translating this statement I took special care in the use of terminology that relate to sexual violence. As a professional translator and #HeForShe activist, I was particularly alarmed by the amateur translation of "強制わいせつ" as 'sexual harassment'. This is outright wrong.
By law, the definition of "強制わいせつ" is Forcible Indecency which is forcible enactment of sexually indecent acts against a person who is not under the age of 13. This is equivalent to sexual assault but NOT sexual harassment.

Amis fans de #KohLanta , vous voulez vous lancez dans #Survivor ? Ce thread est fait pour vous !
Au programme : les différences les plus notables entre les deux jeux ainsi que les bonnes saisons pour démarrer.
Ce thread est garanti sans spoil de thème/twist de certaines saisons
Partie 1: Les différences
Elles sont nombreuses, la première étant le format
aux alentours de 45min l'épisode, là où en France on avoisine les 1h30 voir 2h avec les pubs.
Le montage de l'émission est très différent également, en France Denis s'occupe de faire la voix off, aux USA ce sont les confessionnaux des candidats qui servent à nous raconter ce qu'il se passe sur le camp

#Antisemitic incident!

#Italy #Mailand #Milan
The 89-year-old Milanese Liliena Serge is a #Holocaust #survivor. In January 1944, at the age of 13, she came to #Auschwitz with her father. Unfortunately, her father did not surrive.
She is now traveling all over #Italy to tell her story, and has even been voted a life #senator in gratitude for her work. But for months, the #Auschwitz survivor Liliana Segre gets Daily Hundreds of hate messages,
death threats and #antiSemitic #inflammatory messages that she is now under permanent #police protection. Yesterday, 5000 Denonstranten met on track 23 in #Milan. (The track for transport to #Auschwitz) At the monument, people met to express their solidarity with the survivors.

@SimonFanshawe Fairly shocking to find eradication of "mixed wards" By @NHSEngland @NHSImprovmeent was only rebranding exercise & that now they just lie about #male genitalia to #female patients so they have no way to protect themselves. @CMO_England @CNOEngland
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 NHS guidelines:
Grade #1 woman: transwomen with #ladydique
Grade #2 woman: biological female #unraped (of course)
Grade #3 woman: Biological female - rape survivors, it doesnt matter that they can't sleep or scared out of their wits. @Baroness_Nichol
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 @Baroness_Nichol Ideally, of course #Female #Rape survivors (or victims) dont actually show up for medical treatment they need & deserve, freeing up #NHS resources for patients who are not damaged goods & who deserve actual health care.

Want to witness a #Survivor take her power back? Read on and retweet.

I wrote a letter to my former pastors who ignored the abuse I reported to them eighteen years ago, and I posted it on the review section of the churches that employ them.


#Exvangelical #EmptyThePews
Click the following links and search for the review under Angie Jay. You will find the letters and the names of their intended recipients.…

All day yesterday, I felt badly for @Northroadchurch because I thought...

they were being pulled into something that happened so long ago.
This church just happens to be within walking distance of my house, and they just happened to hire the youth pastor from my former church who ignored my abuse and let my abuser continue to work with students.

Have you noticed that the only time #mentalhealth ever really enters the national conversation is when it’s being used as a scapegoat for violence? [Thread]
This despite the fact persons w/ mental health conditions are significantly more likely to be victims of violence, including gun violence, than perpetrators.

This despite the fact most Americans don’t have access to quality mental health care services & programs.
As we struggle w/ the heartbreaking news of 2 #MSDStrong students—Sydney Aiello, a 2018 grad/FAU student, & Calvin Desir, a sophomore at MSD—and Jeremy Richman, father of #SandyHook victim Avielle Richman, dying by suicide, we must discuss our national mental health crisis.

I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if mob surrounds them and asks, “Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?” …they will have no answer, says actor #NaseeruddinShah
#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.
