STOP RAPE- Stop Abuse!!!

Dear All,
Many people don't know but I am surivor and I am of course against RAPE AND ABUSES. 
Many people do not know that I am fully involved in movement to stop RAPE and ABUSE!
Often I think about our children, hoping their would never had to ever experince that.
I know for myself as Parent, I worry about my children future.
I thought I take the time to create BLOG here on educating What Rape is and how to Fight it.
I join force for many time with DeafHope- 
Wonderful Organzaine that support Deaf who been rape and alway training people to understand the rape culture- 
Someone ASK me what is RAPE Culture please watch the video below.
 
Sadly it is true it happen everyday all over the world. It can happen to anyone, any race, age, and so on. I found many people in my Deaf community didnt know how to protect themselve or speak up even myself - I was lost. It wasnt until years later I've learn my right and understood wow I am surivor.

I have a question for you

Are you a Sexist?

I know there is alot of information but we need to still continue to educate. Our gay community is being attack everyday just like Deaf people being attack everyday- Does it make you wonder what the number against Deaf Gay community. I am strong believe no one should be rape. Gay, str-8, Deaf or Disable. I asked the community to join the fight let no one suffer that pain alone. 
How do you repsond when you someone someone being abuse?

What does COMMUNITY ACCOUNTABILITY look like?

Please watch this video - 
Warning hard image here.

You know when I was growing up - I saw a lot of sistas and friend get rape. 
I couldnt tell my parent or anyone because no one would believe us. 
Sadly it was true. When went to ask for support we was ask to shut or we get in trouble-

Victim Blaming

Please watch the video - 

Domestic Violence is none of our business?

Yeah, right! it is our business!! Someone get beyound hurt - Check in

You know dont think so - Well watch this video 
WARNing this IMAGE is rough -

It can be someone you love so much!!!! 

I remember my ex Partner was alway werid out 
When I asked to kiss

SADLY THAT PERSON WANTED ME TO TAKE CONTROL WILD BUT I FELT

Mission
Our mission at DeafHope is to end domestic and sexual violence against Deaf women and children through empowerment, education and services.

This mission will be achieved on three levels - by providing services to Deaf women and children who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence; by educating our community and service providers about domestic and sexual violence; and by providing statewide training and technical assistance to establish more Deaf-run services for Deaf survivors.
Company Overview
We believe:

1. Deaf women and children deserve to live in homes that are free from violence.
2. The Deaf community and our allies CAN do something to end violence against Deaf women and children.
Description
At DeafHope we rely on the empowerment model. We believe that Deaf women and children are not responsible for violence, and they have a right to live in a healthy environment.
