domesticviolance

I am sad to say, that within this Ummah exists a minority of Muslim Sisters, who are finding it difficult to perform acts of worship & maintain wearing the Hijab-  due to domestic abuse in their households. I would like to send my sympathy to these Muslimahs, who are afflicted with such distress, & assure them that Allah (SWT), the all seeing & hearing is with them & promises them Paradise. None of us can encompass Allah’s wisdom, & with that in mind, we should understand that he does things for a reason. Allah (SWT) tests his A'bd with different calamities as a means of trials, in order to distinguish between the true believer & the hypocrite.

Bride’s Walk raises domestic violence awareness

More than 300 students walked, heard stories from abuse survivors.

MIAMI - Josie Ashton walked more than a 1,000 thousand miles 10 years ago to commemorate the life of Gladys Ricart who was killed by an abusive ex-boyfriend on her wedding day.

“Ten years ago I walked alone; today, I am not alone,” said Ashton. “Being a domestic violence survivor who grew up in a violent home, I want to make everyone aware of this problem. The main source of my inspiration is my two daughters.”

Ashton, 38, was a criminal justice major at Florida International University at the time of the murder in 1999.

“I received a vision from seeing that. I decided to walk from New Jersey to Miami to make people aware of domestic violence,” Ashton said. “As it happens in many cases, everyone was blaming the victim, saying she brought on the attack herself because she was still communicating with her ex-boyfriend.”

Along her walk in September 2001, Ashton stayed in 14 domestic violence shelters and visited 22 cities. 

Her walk inspired subsequent Bride’s Walks in New York, Wisconsin, Florida and Washington. 

South Florida walks have taken place in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2008, when sufficient sponsors were involved. 

To my girlfriend's ex girlfriend...

Because of you she doubts everything.
When she is happy, she’s scared to trust it.
When she is scared, the feeling is all to familiar.
You did a real number with her.
You definitely didn’t deserve her.
You didn’t deserve her love, her trust, her loyalty or her body…
Her beautiful body that you laid hands on. That you hurt and abused and wounded deeper than just the surface.
I will always hate you for that.
I will hate you every time I go to brush a hair behind her ear and she flinches.
I will hate you every time her eyes fill with tears at the memory of what you did to her…
But, what you don’t know… what maybe she doesn’t even know…
Is that she is a Phoenix.
She will rise from the ash that you created, more beautiful and stronger than ever before.
When she learns to trust again, it will be unbreakable.
You are not the defining person of her life. You will not be the standard.
I am.
I will show her what it means to be loved.
I will earn and keep her trust.
I will value her for the treasure that she is.
Her body will be loved, caressed and embraced. I will kiss every inch of her until there are nothing but good memories remaining.
I will show her what it is like to be adored and appreciated. She will never know what it’s like to be taken advantage of again.
She is mine. I am hers.
You may have been her “first love”, but I will be her last.

So I'm a 'Victim' to Domestic Violanace...

As well as a victim to Internet pornography. Pictures that I never approved of….

But mostly i need to vent about the domestic Violanace. My ex is a psychopath and he’s borderline insane. Every little thing set him off. Dishes not being clean, his cup being moved around… I tried to change the apartment around he was not happy At all. Would start throwing things and screaming at me. I’ve been abused both physically and mentally by this asshole and I can’t even get any help from this! The detective that was supposed to be working my case I guess just stopped. I’m not receiving the help I should. I was left battered, bruised and bloody. I had 2 good size chunks of hair ripped from my scalp and bruises on my legs arms and I couldn’t eat or drink much at all from being nearly killed.. 200lbs++ pressing down on my throat. I’m so sick of dealing with this scumbag. After 4.5 years I finally gave up the fight. He left me and my daughter that day…. He tried playing he was the victim. No… I didn’t do anything besides try to get him away from me. I want nothing to do with him and I want him away from my daughter. He’s a danger to her and her life. He posts nudes of people on a few jailbait and porno forums… He’s done it to his cousins, my cousins, my sister, my daughters and my self & friends. He’s a sick sick sick sick person & I warn who ever starts talking to him, that they beware. He plays the “I’m a really nice guy..card” but he’s not!! He’s a liar and he will take control of you and potentially harm you as well. He lives in Stamford, CT. He’s 25 years old. He’s Hispanic… But looks Asian. I would say his name but that is breach of privacy to someone. So here’s his initials. A.O

Beware of this scumbag. He manipulates and is also sexually abusive.

#DomesticViolence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, income, or other factors. Men are victims of nearly 3 million physical assaults in the USA. 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. Domestic violence is the third leading cause of homelessness among families, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. At least 1/3 of the families using New York City’s family shelter system are homeless due to domestic violence. Women ages 20 to 24 are at greatest risk of becoming victims of domestic violence. More than 4 million women experience physical assault and rape by their partners. 1 in 3 female homicide victims are murdered by their current or former partner every year. More than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes every year. Children who live in homes where there is domestic violence also suffer abuse or neglect at high rates (30% to 60%). Children exposed to domestic violence at home are more likely to have health problems, including becoming sick more often, having frequent headaches or stomachaches, and being more tired and lethargic. Children are more likely to intervene when they witness severe violence against a parent – which can place a child at great risk for injury or even death. Without help, girls who witness domestic violence are more vulnerable to abuse as teens and adults. Without help, boys who witness domestic violence are far more likely to become abusers of their partners and/or children as adults, thus continuing the cycle of violence in the next generation. Help change the facts. Speak up, speak out, and make a difference for victims of domestic violence.http://www.safehorizon.org/page/domestic-violence-statistics–facts-52.html #LionzKingsView #LionzKingsView2 #NoMeansNo #HealOurQueens #AntiRape #KingsOurQueensNeedUsToBeKings #Ebony #QueensYourKingsNeedYourSupport

‪#‎DomesticViolence‬ “DISTRACTION” + “INCIDENT”?
Am I the one of the only ones concerned about this –> “[Glory] Johnson’s attorney issued a statement saying the couple apologized for the "distraction” the incident caused their families, the WNBA, fans and sponsors, saying the couple were working through hardships in a stressful time.“
I’m among the first Black dykes to ask where in the hell are images of QTPOC + QTPOC relationships in the mainstream media. However, not at the expense of downplaying any form of intimate partner violence. How is this different from Janay Rice and Ray Rice? Is it because they’re two Black womyn?
To be clear, I very sincerely wish Brittney and Glory all the best. I definitely hope they work through the violence and pain experienced with counseling and love WITH accountability. ~ Aishah Shahidah Simmons

#Feminists would be outraged if they knew they were being hoodwinked by the “#corporate elite”. They think they are fighting the “patriarchy” but in fact they are victims of a plot to bring down the birth rate by spreading sexual chaos among #men and #women.

Search for “Women’s Studies, #Rockefeller Foundation” in #Google and you’ll discover 15,000 examples of how the people who funded depopulation and Nazi #eugenics are funding #feminism. This is not a coincidence.

The #RockefellerFoundation people and their allies own much of the world’s wealth. They are responsible for war, deprivation, terrorism and disease. Ladies, do you really think they’ve suddenly taken a genuine interest in women’s rights? Or gay rights? You are being used.

Second-wave feminism is part of a concerted attack on the heterosexual foundations of #society. Starting in the 1960’s, an orchestrated media campaign has disparaged the importance of #wife and #mother, #father and the nuclear #family. It has feverishly promoted the idea that, instead, women should find personal fulfillment in career. We naively believed this was spontaneous.

There is no such thing as “equality” in terms of power. (Feminist “equality” is really a ploy for female domination. For example, you don’t hear feminists calling for equality at universities where women often outnumber men by 2-1 .) Men should avoid opinionated, aggressive, demanding women. It’s too late to save them. This will spare you a great deal of time, money and anguish.

The essence of #femininity is for a woman to depend on the man she loves.

The intimate male-female dynamic is for woman to entrust worldly power to her #husband, and for him to use it to make her happy.

#Man wants power. Women want love (not power.) They ARE different.

A man must supply just leadership and sustenance to his family. Therefore he must have control. (“#DomesticViolence”) legislation is designed to destroy families by undermining paternal authority. Ninety five per cent of the cases involve power struggles NOT battered women. Rp @smoloko123
