The kind people treat you shows you what kind of people they are. Don't let the murderers, women and child beaters, women haters, domestic and sexual abusers, rapists, molesters, sadistic stalkers, women killers, girls killers, child killers win! Together we can fight against that and make a change!
“In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure no one listens.”
― Judith Lewis Herman, Trauma and Recovery
When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.”

Violence against women, girls and female childs - particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence - are major public health problems and violations of women's human rights and childrens rights..
Recent global prevalence figures indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime.
Most of this violence is intimate partner violence. Worldwide, almost one third (30%) of women who have been in a relationship report that they have experienced some form of physical and/or sexual violence by their intimate partner.
Globally, as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
Violence can negatively affect women’s physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health, and may increase vulnerability to HIV.
Factors associated with increased risk of perpetration of violence include low education, child maltreatment or exposure to violence in the family, harmful use of alcohol, attitudes accepting of violence and gender inequality.
Factors associated with increased risk of experiencing intimate partner and sexual violence include low education, exposure to violence between parents, abuse during childhood, attitudes accepting violence and gender inequality.
There is evidence from high-income settings that school-based programmes may be effective in preventing relationship violence (or dating violence) among young people.
In low-income settings, primary prevention strategies, such as microfinance combined with gender equality training and community-based initiatives that address gender inequality and relationship skills, hold promise.
Situations of conflict, post conflict and displacement may exacerbate existing violence, such as by intimate partners, and present additional forms of violence against women.
Global violence uniquely affects the girl child. Although international legal instruments have been in place for decades to protect the girl child, thousands of brutal acts of violence and neglect specifically targeting the girl child can be observed around the world on a daily basis. For centuries, girls who have barely attained adolescence have been forced into marriage, often with men many years their senior. As a minor, a girl child cannot legally give her consent to enter into such a partnership. They have suffered in female genital mutilation rituals. They are traded, bought, and sold across national borders as commodities to be put to use as prostitutes or slaves, or merely to be sold again at a profit. Many girls are even victimized before birth, as technology and greater access to medicine have given rise to prenatal sex selection and selection abortion based on sex. Girls continue to face the threat of sexual harassment and abuse in workplaces and schools. Their lives may be taken for the “honor” of their families for speaking to strangers or committing other minor transgressions. Violence against the girl child has become a powerful and all-too-common tactic in times of war and humanitarian disaster.
Violence against the girl child is perpetrated on every continent, wielded by every social and economic class, and sanctioned to varying degrees by every form of government, every major religion, and every kind of communal or familial structure.
The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation because in the degradation of woman the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source. ~Lucretia Mott
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

Misogyny May Be Recognized Nationally as a Hate Crime Against Women!
Misogyny means hating women. A misogynist is a person who hates women. Misogynists hate women because they believe there is something wrong with them, such as being stupid, dirty or evil.
Misogyny is different from sexism, which is not based on hate. Sexists do not respect women and the differences between men and women. Someone is not sexist because they believe men and women are different and can have different roles in society. Someone is not sexist because they believe there are differences between men and women. Differences do not indicate there is something wrong with either sex or that both sexes need to be alike. Someone is not sexist because they believe God or nature has made women and men different and may have different roles in society.
I've been bullied and stalked since thirteen years by an sadistic Muslim ex-tenant and all his friends. I have got many death and rape threats, dick pics, rape porns, bestiality porns, BDSM porns and revenge porns about their girls, the badest thing is the online harassment and internet slandering, cyber bullying, gang stalking, they called me a bitch, a whore, a slut, because I want no sex with the stalker, it is heinous.
Two girlfriends of me took their own life at the age of 14 years because of school bullying. I was bullied and sexual harrassed at the work place.
And at school I was bullied and sexual harrassed and stalked by a psychopatic class mate. He called me mad, silly and perverse, because I don't want sex with him.
This is a quick and dirty checklist for all of you feminists and allies out there living with male privilege and ready to move past feminism
Maybe you’re a man who is generally aware of the unfair advantages you’re granted in this society by virtue of your gender. You already know about the economic glass ceiling, the obscenely high rates of sexual and physical assault against women and gender non-conforming people in this country, and the ways that gender socialization in patriarchal contexts are meant to prime men to take on positions of power.
Let’s say you know better than to use words like “hysterical” or “bitch,” and you sure as fuck know not to blame heated arguments on the fact that someone is on her/zir/their period.
If this is you, you’ve got a running start.
Male privilege can be understood as a set of unearned rights, advantages, and/or immunities that men enjoy by virtue of living in a patriarchal society. If you are a woman or gender non-conforming person, examples of how men benefit from patriarchy are often glaringly obvious.
But, if you’re someone with male privilege however, some of the more subtle examples might be harder to identify.
Sometimes misogynistic behaviors are super blatant and recognizable, and other times they take on more subtle hues that pop up unexpectedly in our daily interactions. Aside from perpetuating misogynistic behaviors, there are so many other ways of thinking and engaging that can be just as harmful.
In every workshop, conference, meeting, discussion group or classroom conversation, there is usually at least one guy who wins this title.
It’s so common in multi-gendered situations to witness men talking out of turn, interrupting other people while they’re talking, or completely disregarding the allotted time-limit a facilitator has set for individual questions or comments.
These men will often highjack the conversation and/or derail its original topic in order to match their own personal interests.
In these contexts its also common for men to go off on lengthy diatribes in order to show off how much they know about a subject.
Sometimes, in an attempt to be polite, a man will raise their hands over and over again to make comments despite the fact that their opinions have been heard way more than anybody else in the room already.
“Misogynistic?” you might ask, skeptically. Isn’t that kind of behavior just plain rude?
The answer is yes – regardless of who you are, these kinds of behaviors are just plain rude. But the larger question I would pose is: What possesses a person to act this way in the first place? Who is it that feels comfortable (or oblivious) of dominating space in this way?
My point? It is a misogynistic sense of entitlement that encourages men to think that what they have to say is more important or valuable than anybody else.
But here’s the thing: Men will often pour their hearts out to their female or gender non-conforming friends in a therapy-esque fashion, but when the tables are turned, men are often not willing to reciprocate the same kinds of emotional labor.
Negating someone’s gender identity is extricably linked to misogyny!
Male violence is no problem worldwide, but a victim's defense is a problem. The victims should be silent worldwide and the culprits are the heros. We must stop this heinous and cruel injustice forever!
