CW: harassment/violence:

A thread...

So there’s been a lot of talk at my institution recently about harassment and the lack of response from the institution. 1/n #MeToo #MeTooUvA
There is now much collective hand ringing, promises of more robust complaints procedures, and we are being urged to report incidents. 2/n
They will be taken seriously. We are told. 3/n

@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut "Offered" has a ring of solicitation in it. According to both @LucyFlores & numerous news footages of #Biden's #UnwantedTouching, he NEVER solicited consent, but took a #privilege that was not his to take. #OurBodiesOurHomes #OnlyYesMeansYes
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 2/ And the audacity of of saying "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.
The 1st part, using his own assessment to measure others' feelings wo their input-cute!
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 3/ I wonder, if @pewresearch or some other researchers (FYI, @ConversationEDU) did a #survey of accused/convicted #sexualharassment & #sexualassault predators, how many will offer that exact defense?
2nd part, #victimblaming. No, @JoeBiden, if u actually believed in...

I guess, more than anything, here's what bothers me about people's comments about #LeavingNeverland, Robson and Safechuck: they lived it. You weren't there. You can make judgments ALL you want, but it means NOTHING. It's not your life.
As any childhood sexual abuse (#CSA) survivor will tell you, we're used to not being believed. We're used to people dismissing and minimizing us. We build up our defenses because, in truth, our healing only depends on us, not anyone else's validation.
Y'all think what you say is important, what with your studying of this file and that report. So continue telling these young men or other survivors you don't believe them.

We'll continue to heal without your approval, input, and commentary, thanks.

At a packed Exeter HATOC for @ExeterCycling to stand witness to what Councillors & Officers say about cycle safety & speed compliance.
There's plenty of time to discuss the minutiae of bus/taxi issues.
Jamie Hulland (DCC) updating on Exeter Transport Steering Group, making reference to @ExeterCycling 8 point plan (which he states will be replied to in the January HATOC)

#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

THREAD

1. I recently started #victimstigma after professionals I’ve never met in my field of psychology & CSE found out that I was raped 11yrs ago & used it to send hundreds of pages of disgusting emails claiming that I am mentally ill & unstable.
2. And they tried for MONTHS to protect their identities and silence me - hoping that I would never go public about what they had done because they have used mental health stigma to try to discredit years of my work. They work in mental health, yet did this to me.
3. Mental health issues affect every single one of us. These so-called professionals in my field must have never experienced a single trauma or experience in their whole lives, which makes them immune from mental health issues and able to take shots at others

1) WHY WOMEN KEEP SILENT

So, I was raped when I was about four. It never occurred to me to say anything until I was about eleven.
2) At four, I didn't know what the term rape meant; I knew what had been done and that it wasn't right but who would I tell?? I was ashamed.
3) I remember thinking I'd be mortified if my parents ever found out I'd been a "participant" in this lewd act. God forbid they found out.
