Dealing with a toxic relationship is hard work, and no survivor can go it alone. If you know someone who is in a toxic relationship, be it with a partner, a parent or someone at work, I can assure you they can use some help. What I have also learned from experience, is that not all help – however well-intended – is in fact helpful.

Victims are often reluctant to report a sexual assault for a number of reasons, such as fear of retaliation, shame, guilt, embarrassment, fear that they will not be believed and lack of support.  ~ Corey Cook

Blaming the victim is rarely admitted, but studies indicate it's repeated over & over toward the poor, homeless, people laid off, abused, enslaved, brutalized, raped, victims of war, etc. Studies document victim-blaming - as a way to justify status quo & stereotyping - to increase support for existing social traditions - but without any significant relationship between blame and religion or altruism.

All domestic abuse is wrong - I genuinely know more men who have been victims of domestic abuse than women, and while the idea of women=victims/men=abusers persists men remain victims. Give Them A Voice is an advocacy foundation, dedicated to raising awarness of the impact and long term effect of sexual abuse on boys as they grow into men. www.noworkingtitle.org
