Group Info

This group's global focus is to support victims and survivors of sexual assault/molestation and/or abuse. UPDATE (11 July 2014): Please read the rules carefully before submitting. Submissions must now be approved by our admins.

:iconstarplz::iconanimeace-plz-r: :iconanimeace-plz-u: :iconanimeace-plz-l: :iconanimeace-plz-e: :iconanimeace-plz-s::iconstarplz:





:bulletred: All work submitted must SUPPORT sexual abuse awareness. Any art that depicts sex in an inappropriate way or any piece that is anything off-topic will automatically be declined. This is a group to spread awareness concerning sexual abuse in all forms for victims of all genders and ages.

*UPDATE (16 July 2014): Concerning submissions of our group mascots: From now on, we will only be accepting submissions of Abbi and Alex that are strictly sexual abuse related art. Please keep material that is more heavily fan-related to mainly Ed Edd n Eddy groups only.

*UPDATE (27 August 2014): Please do note (this is a suggestion, not a requirement): It would help our admins out greatly as well if there is a brief description below your submission that can let us know your art is related to our group, especially if this is not already entirely clear by the artwork itself. This way, your work can be approved much quicker. For example, if you want to submit a drawing of an original character who is/was abused and the subject of abuse isn't clear through the illustration, something as simply worded as ''this character is a survivor of abuse'' says enough for us to approve it.




:bulletred: Submissions to Featured are unlimited, meaning you can submit as many works as you please.



:bulletred: All art concerning sexual abuse support and awareness is accepted. That includes art of all mediums (traditional, digital, etc.), fanart, literature, fanfiction, photography, stamps, comics, etc. If you don't see a folder to submit your work, you may send the group a note and request a folder to be made.



:bulletred: Do not bash any members here. This is a support group and we will not tolerate any violence or hate.

:bulletgreen: WingsofCrippledGlass is a support group with a global focus to spread awareness of sexual abuse in any way, shape, or form. Anyone can join to support the cause— one does not necessarily need to be a victim themselves. If you have known someone who has suffered similar abuse, you are also welcome. Or if you are just an advocate for the cause but have not suffered sexual abuse or have known a victim, you are always welcome to join us and help spread the message.



:bulletgreen: Though we cannot completely stop the sexual abuse of victims ranging from all genders and ages, we can help relieve it by acknowledging the problem and spreading awareness. We appreciate your support.



:bulletgreen: Whether you are a survivor, a friend or relative of a victim, or an advocate, please come join us today.

Compiled here is a list-in-progress to deviantART and outside articles that others may find useful—information and news reporting on rape and sexual violence as well to survivors' stories. This will also limit the need for multiple journal posts on news.

Rape StatisticsI haven't given this a mature label because I don't plan to be graphic and I won't use strong language (what would be the point?), but I will be discussing rape statistics, so if you are sensitive towards that, be warned. This is not a happy journal.

We all know that women are raped every year. The media and feminists have made that abundantly clear. After laws included men as victims as rape victims as well as women (there is a myth that the law makes it impossible for a man to be a victim of rape), we are becoming increasingly aware that men are raped as well. However, no one knows the exact number of rapes that take place every year as rape and sexual assault crimes are by far some of the most under-reported crimes worldwide, be the victims male or female (it's suspected that 60% of rape cases go unreported, but that number is up in the air seeing as we can't put an exact number on something that goes unreported). Female victims are more likely to alert auth
Domestic Violence in the United States Author’s Note:
    This was a college term paper on domestic violence and abuse in America and has been altered some so the resource information is right after the quotes, so not in full term paper format. This is not a teaching example of writing a term paper but it may help college and university students with information on domestic violence and abuse. 
Introduction
    Domestic violence and abuse in the United States has affected people throughout its history and is a factor in many families’ lives today, affecting the victims both physically and psychologically. The victims and perpetrators of domestic violence can be male or female, heterosexual or homosexual, young or old. Though, the majority of cases are still the male as the perpetrator and the female as the victim. This type of violence can be found in different religious, racial, and ethnic groups and different socioeconomic and class backgrounds. The v
New Victim-Blaming Ads[Source: Feministing- http://feministing.com/2011/12/07/pa-liquor-control-board-to-teens-rape-is-your-fault-and-your-friends-fault/ ]
PA Liquor Control Board to teens: Rape is your fault, and your friends’ fault!
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board recently released a new ad campaign, Control Tonight, that attempts to curb teen drinking. Their case? Don’t drink too much, or else you’ll get raped, but hey–that’s your fault, because we warned you!
One ad features a young girl’s legs, underwear around the ankles, as she lays on what appears to be a bathroom floor. The text reads, “She didn’t want to do it, but she couldn’t say no.”
The campaign even blames the victim’s friends–the Control Tonight website reads:
“Calling the shots starts with you. What if you didn’t watch out for your friends during a night of drinking?”
The campaign blatantly
Female sexual abusers"Society expects the mother of a toddler would do everything in her power to make sure her child is protected from harm,"
While female sexual abusers are rare in the court system, those who deal with child sexual abuse know that cases that do come through are far from unique. A national study released in 2005 shows that biological mothers were the perpetrators of sexual abuse in five per cent of the substantiated cases investigated by child welfare authorities.
The instance is probably higher, since researchers are certain that many cases of child sexual abuse never come to light. "A lot of people have difficulty believing women are capable of sexually abusing children,"
Even victims of such abuse, looking back at it as adults, have a hard time talking about it. When work and survays have been done within prisons it is found that many men had been abused by women but that they often had difficulty identifying it as abuse.

Teenage Trafficking Survivors NEED YOUR HELP! NOW!As many of you know, I work for StreetLightUSA
A non-profit lifehouse for survivors of sex trafficking, as well as sexual exploitation.
These girls have been through hell, and we are one of the few organizations out there that actually has beds for them. When they come to StreetLight, their life begins! They get school, their own bed, a bedroom, clothes, shampoo, everything they need! They have "house moms" rather than caretakers. These are women who do act as their mothers and cook for them, help them with their school assignments, teach them things, watch movies with them, play games...
But we want to do more for them. We NEED to do more. All you have to do is vote, there is a link in there to the voting page: http://dmlcompetition.net/project/summer-technology-camp-and-digital-learning-event
That's honestly all we need, we have everything else set up for it. We have professionals willing to teach the lessons, we have the campus available,
A Documentary Response to Born Into Brothels      What similarities could one find between the Red Light district in India and the urban landscape of the capital of China? I could see two: the unjust government and two hopeless boys. After watching "Born Into Brothels", I found a striking similarity between one of the boys from the brothels with my cousin; his name is Avijid.
      Although I do not dare to compare my cousin's privileged life with those kids from the documentary, I still see a similar sort of emotion shine through. These kids, being so young, already have a sense of despair. They were put into a situation that they cannot escape, nor did they want to be put in --hence the "born into". The same could be said of my cousin and all the classmates I left behind in China, and it was Avijid that made me see this. His sort of "tough act", pretending as though he didn't care and nothing really mattered; this was almost a reflection of my cousin. Although he seemed strong on the outside, on t
Men can be raped too
Myth: Men can't be sexually assaulted.
Reality: Men can be, and are, sexually assaulted every day. Any man can be sexually assaulted regardless of their size, strength, appearance, occupation, race or sexual orientation. Male rape can happen at home, work, out doors, in a  car, in the military, prisons, in locker rooms, rest rooms, public toilets, in fact just about anywhere a rapist thinks they can get away with it, and it can happen to any male.
It should also be noted that it is not unusual for a male to "freeze" during a rape, in part due to shock, and fear of ones life. Remember, the rapist will no doubt have done this before, and hence be prepared for what happens, but few, if any men, have even considered in their mind the possibility of such things happening and are thus totally unprepared.
Myth: Only gay men are sexually assaulted.
Reality: Although gay men are raped slightly more often than heterosexual men this is due more to the fact that they can be the target an

A  few days ago, a woman in Afghanistan was merely accused of adultery and  was executed in the street with the Taliban cheering on her murderer.

Please Read: Spread the WordLately, I've been trying to raise awareness on human trafficking. My goal is for the awareness to spread towards people and for these people to pass it on to others. Hopefully it will go to the more isolated parts of the world and let people in those areas be aware of it too. I believe that once everybody is aware of it, it will prevent people (especially girls) to fall into the human trafficking trap.
I made a website where it shows us how we can SPREAD THE WORD. 
http://spreadthewordsofawarene…
If you do not want to read on the website, below is a summary of what you can do:
Spread the word on the dangers of human trafficking (like a warning) -basically a message for people to be aware of it- through your social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. 
You could also make something like videos, artwork or take photographs. 
Share it on places like YouTube, DeviantArt, Flickr, etc.

Childhood sexual abuse for boysDespite public opinion to the contrary, it most definitely exists and it is a problem. One study by the CDC found that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys had experienced some form of unwanted sexual contact before age 16. The same study found that boys suffer similar long-term negative consequences to that of girls. Additionally, the CDC study kept track of the sex of the abusers and found that 40% of the abusers of the boys are women. This study is not isolated as there are several studies all reaching approximately the same conclusions.
This information has been out there for a while and yet popular media sources seem prone to simply ignore or even hide the suffering of boys. There is even one website which gives a rather extensive and unbiased look childhood victims of sexual assault that acknowledges boys fairly accurately. However, one of the studies they employ seems to suggest that of all the different categories of sexual abuse, ranging from the least intrusive of simple touching to

We have all survived through abuse. It's a fact. It's what's caused us to have the mental disorder that's brought us together here. For most of us, that abuse has been of a sexual nature at some point or another. Sexual abuse takes on many forms and produces many types of victims. It's all pending on how we cope. For a lot of us, the things we've survived have made us who we are today.
After looking over replies and details from previous discussion topics, I've realized that a lot of the people here would not choose to relive through the abuse they've experienced. A select few have mentioned that t
Gang Rape
We think of rape as an individual not a group act. It is difficult to grasp its social dimention. We assume that, like sex, it takes place in private. It is difficult enough to face the idea of rape. To envisage gang rape is even harder, it is easier to ignore the distinction, to class it all as rape. Yet the historical origins of rape rest with the gang. The Latin word from which rape derives mean "to seize or carry off". In ancient times, warring tribes abducted women, who then became the spoils of war.
It is generally believed for men who engage in gang rape to be pathological bullies, fiends or maniacs, and that gang rape is far less common that individual rape. The findings of research refute these assumptions. One of the first American researchers to analyse the characteristics of men reported to the police for rape in Philadelphia found that 43% of the 1292 men operated in pairs of gangs (Amir 1971). 55% raped in gangs and 16% in pairs. Contrary to prior research this study also
Acquantance rape
Did you know that marital Rape was only made a criminal act in the UK in 1991? Up until then it was considered impossible for a man to rape or sexually assault his wife. To quote:
"A husband cannot rape his wife unless the parties are seperated or the court has by injunction forbidden him to interfere with his wife or he has given an undertaking in court no to interfere with her." (The Law Made Simple, The Chaucer Press, 1981)
Stranger rape is usually a one-off, someone you don't know, with whom you don't share any experiences or history. When the assault happens, there can be no doubt as to what is happening: that it is Rape (though even in such situations the victim will often wonder what she has done to precipitate the assault and will blame herself).
In marital rape (and other forms of acquaintance rape) the circumstances are very different. It is – quite apart from a physical and sexual violation – a betrayal of trust. Here is a person whom you thought you knew intimatel

Basic facts about suicide

Suicide is No SolutionAs human beings, we are drawn to those of who we share similar experiences with. Browsing deviantART lately I have noticed how many young people we have here and along with this I have discovered by reading Journals that many of the younger ones here suffer from Depression and many more speak of death and dying by suicide as if it were some solution, I want you to know that it really is not.
I want to bring to attention some facts that I learned too late in hopes that if you or someone you care for is in danger you will seek help because you or your loved one CAN be helped.
  
  Studies show that DEPRESSION alone carries it's own risk factors for suicide but add to this ANXIETY and/or PANIC DISORDER and the risk rises dramatically.

I Can Never Tell Her What Happened...So my mom visited me today. And we sat down to watch this http://www.contracostatimes.com/breaking-news/ci_26733026/cbs-48-hours-look-at-sex-abuse-scandal
And this is what my mom said (in Hindi, mind):
''Oh my god! How could those girls let that happen? Don't they know any better? Don't they know right from wrong? I just... can't understand what was going through their heads. I mean, if my (male) teacher asked me to give him oral sex I would've been like 'Ew. Gross,' and told someone. Don't they know how to speak up, how to tell someone? Didn't those kids think that behaviour was inappropriate, strange and not right at all? What is wrong with kids these days!''
My older sister, Sandita, the only one in my family who knows about my abuse, saw the look on my face and tried to reason with Mama. ''But Mama,'' Sandita said, ''these kids were scared. They didn't know what to do. These adults overpowered them and gained their trust. That's what pedophiles do. Deep down, these kids know its wr
Sexually Assaulted at the Bus StopSo yesterday after class, a shocking thing happened.
I have English class on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1:00 and 2:15, and it is the only days I go to school alone. My sister usually rides the bus home with me except on Tuesdays and Thursdays-- she has Tuesday off and on Thursday she doesn't go to class till later. So I'm alone and vulnerable to the riff-rafts who like to drift in on the public street. English is one of my favorite classes after Film and it's unfortunate that this week I've had the worst of luck after class-- it must be Karma. So anyhow, I got out of class a little before 2:15 since next week are finals and classes are being cut shorter before the end of the semester. My English class is in the front and I have to walk across the campus down ''the student road'' to get to the bus stop. Usually, the student road is pretty busy-- there are a lot of kids walking around. Once you get past the Dayton Complex where the dorms are in the very front, however, the road clear

They are not. Many men and women consent to BDSM. When consent is not given and whenever someone misuses BDSM to mask abusive intentions, then it is rape. People consent to sex, not rape or abuse, and this form of thinking stigmatises the BDSM community by believing people are consenting to abuse, which creates a false perception of actual abuse victims that people want to be raped, when in reality, they're sexual acts that from an external viewpoint, society may find ''un-mainstream'' and therefore may think it's abuse. With that said, the BDSM community can experience abuse all the same. The same pattern of rape culture can be found in ''mainstream'' sex communities as well, let's not forget. The author makes some fair points to de-stigmatise BDSM but she also sheds light on rape culture that occurs within her community.]

You want to tell someone.
But how can you begin to tell?
Who do you tell?
Where do you go? Who do you turn to?
Who will listen?
Who will care?
Who will have open arms?
Who will shield us with their wings?
Who will take my hand and guide us to the end of time?
But the only wings I have are shattered... crippled like glass.
And I cannot find the strength to fly.

So yes, the creator of one of our group mascots, Alex, has sadly deactivated her account for reasons unknown ---> Misjudgment

However, she will not be forgotten.

In remembrance of Misjudgment AKA Kylea Amber Riffle, who sadly left us. :(

MisjudgmentAs we all know, :iconmisjudgment: has deactivated her account, and although I have never had an encounter with her on here her art was very meaningful and inspirational to me. I want all of you guys to remember how awesome she is! Especially her Oc Alex :iconalex-fans:

Kylea Amber Riffle (AKA Misjudgment)So yes, the news is spreading like wildfire all throughout dA and the EEnE community, but :iconmisjudgment: has sadly deactivated her account, I just found out yesterday morning. It has come as a real shock to all of us who have admired her, and especially for those who knew her personally.
 
I haven't e-mailed her in awhile so I don't know what happened, but I am extremely torn and upset about it. I am concerned for her health and well-being, and I feel so helpless, being far off in another country, safe behind hospital walls. I suppose all we can do is pray and hope she is alive and well.
 
She will be greatly missed. She was an amazing artist and a very good person, and despite her lengthy hiatus, she was in my thoughts and prayers every day. I know things haven't gone easy for her or her family, so I am hoping for the best and trying not to think the worst.
 
Likewise, my activity here may slow down a bit since I'm acutely upset over this. I can't seem to think about

MisjudgmentHey guys…. Does anyone know why :iconmisjudgment: deactivated her account? I just realized she did and now I'm very sad. Is she coming back? :( MisjudgmentHey guys…. Does anyone know why :iconmisjudgment: deactivated her account? I just realized she did and now I'm very sad. Is she coming back? :(



Many thanks to :icondezymax: DEZYMAX for creating this beautiful remembrance video. :)

Rape StatisticsI haven't given this a mature label because I don't plan to be graphic and I won't use strong language (what would be the point?), but I will be discussing rape statistics, so if you are sensitive towards that, be warned. This is not a happy journal.

We all know that women are raped every year. The media and feminists have made that abundantly clear. After laws included men as victims as rape victims as well as women (there is a myth that the law makes it impossible for a man to be a victim of rape), we are becoming increasingly aware that men are raped as well. However, no one knows the exact number of rapes that take place every year as rape and sexual assault crimes are by far some of the most under-reported crimes worldwide, be the victims male or female (it's suspected that 60% of rape cases go unreported, but that number is up in the air seeing as we can't put an exact number on something that goes unreported). Female victims are more likely to alert auth
Domestic Violence in the United States Author’s Note:
    This was a college term paper on domestic violence and abuse in America and has been altered some so the resource information is right after the quotes, so not in full term paper format. This is not a teaching example of writing a term paper but it may help college and university students with information on domestic violence and abuse. 
Introduction
    Domestic violence and abuse in the United States has affected people throughout its history and is a factor in many families’ lives today, affecting the victims both physically and psychologically. The victims and perpetrators of domestic violence can be male or female, heterosexual or homosexual, young or old. Though, the majority of cases are still the male as the perpetrator and the female as the victim. This type of violence can be found in different religious, racial, and ethnic groups and different socioeconomic and class backgrounds. The v
New Victim-Blaming Ads[Source: Feministing- http://feministing.com/2011/12/07/pa-liquor-control-board-to-teens-rape-is-your-fault-and-your-friends-fault/ ]
PA Liquor Control Board to teens: Rape is your fault, and your friends’ fault!
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board recently released a new ad campaign, Control Tonight, that attempts to curb teen drinking. Their case? Don’t drink too much, or else you’ll get raped, but hey–that’s your fault, because we warned you!
One ad features a young girl’s legs, underwear around the ankles, as she lays on what appears to be a bathroom floor. The text reads, “She didn’t want to do it, but she couldn’t say no.”
The campaign even blames the victim’s friends–the Control Tonight website reads:
“Calling the shots starts with you. What if you didn’t watch out for your friends during a night of drinking?”
The campaign blatantly
Female sexual abusers"Society expects the mother of a toddler would do everything in her power to make sure her child is protected from harm,"
While female sexual abusers are rare in the court system, those who deal with child sexual abuse know that cases that do come through are far from unique. A national study released in 2005 shows that biological mothers were the perpetrators of sexual abuse in five per cent of the substantiated cases investigated by child welfare authorities.
The instance is probably higher, since researchers are certain that many cases of child sexual abuse never come to light. "A lot of people have difficulty believing women are capable of sexually abusing children,"
Even victims of such abuse, looking back at it as adults, have a hard time talking about it. When work and survays have been done within prisons it is found that many men had been abused by women but that they often had difficulty identifying it as abuse.

Teenage Trafficking Survivors NEED YOUR HELP! NOW!As many of you know, I work for StreetLightUSA
A non-profit lifehouse for survivors of sex trafficking, as well as sexual exploitation.
These girls have been through hell, and we are one of the few organizations out there that actually has beds for them. When they come to StreetLight, their life begins! They get school, their own bed, a bedroom, clothes, shampoo, everything they need! They have "house moms" rather than caretakers. These are women who do act as their mothers and cook for them, help them with their school assignments, teach them things, watch movies with them, play games...
But we want to do more for them. We NEED to do more. All you have to do is vote, there is a link in there to the voting page: http://dmlcompetition.net/project/summer-technology-camp-and-digital-learning-event

A Documentary Response to Born Into Brothels      What similarities could one find between the Red Light district in India and the urban landscape of the capital of China? I could see two: the unjust government and two hopeless boys. After watching "Born Into Brothels", I found a striking similarity between one of the boys from the brothels with my cousin; his name is Avijid.
      Although I do not dare to compare my cousin's privileged life with those kids from the documentary, I still see a similar sort of emotion shine through. These kids, being so young, already have a sense of despair. They were put into a situation that they cannot escape, nor did they want to be put in --hence the "born into". The same could be said of my cousin and all the classmates I left behind in China, and it was Avijid that made me see this. His sort of "tough act", pretending as though he didn't care and nothing really mattered; this was almost a reflection of my cousin. Although he seemed strong on the outside, on t
Men can be raped too
Myth: Men can't be sexually assaulted.
Reality: Men can be, and are, sexually assaulted every day. Any man can be sexually assaulted regardless of their size, strength, appearance, occupation, race or sexual orientation. Male rape can happen at home, work, out doors, in a  car, in the military, prisons, in locker rooms, rest rooms, public toilets, in fact just about anywhere a rapist thinks they can get away with it, and it can happen to any male.
It should also be noted that it is not unusual for a male to "freeze" during a rape, in part due to shock, and fear of ones life. Remember, the rapist will no doubt have done this before, and hence be prepared for what happens, but few, if any men, have even considered in their mind the possibility of such things happening and are thus totally unprepared.
Myth: Only gay men are sexually assaulted.
Reality: Although gay men are raped slightly more often than heterosexual men this is due more to the fact that they can be the target an

Please Read: Spread the WordLately, I've been trying to raise awareness on human trafficking. My goal is for the awareness to spread towards people and for these people to pass it on to others. Hopefully it will go to the more isolated parts of the world and let people in those areas be aware of it too. I believe that once everybody is aware of it, it will prevent people (especially girls) to fall into the human trafficking trap.
I made a website where it shows us how we can SPREAD THE WORD. 
http://spreadthewordsofawarene…
If you do not want to read on the website, below is a summary of what you can do:
Spread the word on the dangers of human trafficking (like a warning) -basically a message for people to be aware of it- through your social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. 
You could also make something like videos, artwork or take photographs. 
Share it on places like YouTube, DeviantArt, Flickr, etc.

Childhood sexual abuse for boysDespite public opinion to the contrary, it most definitely exists and it is a problem. One study by the CDC found that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys had experienced some form of unwanted sexual contact before age 16. The same study found that boys suffer similar long-term negative consequences to that of girls. Additionally, the CDC study kept track of the sex of the abusers and found that 40% of the abusers of the boys are women. This study is not isolated as there are several studies all reaching approximately the same conclusions.
This information has been out there for a while and yet popular media sources seem prone to simply ignore or even hide the suffering of boys. There is even one website which gives a rather extensive and unbiased look childhood victims of sexual assault that acknowledges boys fairly accurately. However, one of the studies they employ seems to suggest that of all the different categories of sexual abuse, ranging from the least intrusive of simple touching to

We have all survived through abuse. It's a fact. It's what's caused us to have the mental disorder that's brought us together here. For most of us, that abuse has been of a sexual nature at some point or another. Sexual abuse takes on many forms and produces many types of victims. It's all pending on how we cope. For a lot of us, the things we've survived have made us who we are today.
After looking over replies and details from previous discussion topics, I've realized that a lot of the people here would not choose to relive through the abuse they've experienced. A select few have mentioned that t
Protecting From Sexual AssaultThere is actually no cut-and-dry way to avoid sexual assault and that's a scary thought. We want to believe that there's a way to avoid it because we don't want it to happen to us, and this is where the stupid questions come from. You know the ones. "What were you wearing?" "What were you doing?" You see we always think it's going to happen to someone else…until it happens to someone we know. At that point we think, "Now, wait a minute, if it could happen to her, it could happen to me…" And thus we ask what they were doing in order to avoid doing it ourselves and thus avoid sexual assault. Most of these questions are not intentional victim-blaming, but that is what they are, and they are unfounded.
A person who commits sexual assault doesn't care what you're wearing, doesn't care if it's dark out, doesn't care that you were out drinking, etc. These people want power and, though sexual parts are used, it is not sex that is occurring, it is an assault. It is true that some of t
Gang Rape
We think of rape as an individual not a group act. It is difficult to grasp its social dimention. We assume that, like sex, it takes place in private. It is difficult enough to face the idea of rape. To envisage gang rape is even harder, it is easier to ignore the distinction, to class it all as rape. Yet the historical origins of rape rest with the gang. The Latin word from which rape derives mean "to seize or carry off". In ancient times, warring tribes abducted women, who then became the spoils of war.
It is generally believed for men who engage in gang rape to be pathological bullies, fiends or maniacs, and that gang rape is far less common that individual rape. The findings of research refute these assumptions. One of the first American researchers to analyse the characteristics of men reported to the police for rape in Philadelphia found that 43% of the 1292 men operated in pairs of gangs (Amir 1971). 55% raped in gangs and 16% in pairs. Contrary to prior research this study also
Acquantance rape
Did you know that marital Rape was only made a criminal act in the UK in 1991? Up until then it was considered impossible for a man to rape or sexually assault his wife. To quote:
"A husband cannot rape his wife unless the parties are seperated or the court has by injunction forbidden him to interfere with his wife or he has given an undertaking in court no to interfere with her." (The Law Made Simple, The Chaucer Press, 1981)
Stranger rape is usually a one-off, someone you don't know, with whom you don't share any experiences or history. When the assault happens, there can be no doubt as to what is happening: that it is Rape (though even in such situations the victim will often wonder what she has done to precipitate the assault and will blame herself).
In marital rape (and other forms of acquaintance rape) the circumstances are very different. It is – quite apart from a physical and sexual violation – a betrayal of trust. Here is a person whom you thought you knew intimatel

Suicide is No SolutionAs human beings, we are drawn to those of who we share similar experiences with. Browsing deviantART lately I have noticed how many young people we have here and along with this I have discovered by reading Journals that many of the younger ones here suffer from Depression and many more speak of death and dying by suicide as if it were some solution, I want you to know that it really is not.
I want to bring to attention some facts that I learned too late in hopes that if you or someone you care for is in danger you will seek help because you or your loved one CAN be helped.
  
  Studies show that DEPRESSION alone carries it's own risk factors for suicide but add to this ANXIETY and/or PANIC DISORDER and the risk rises dramatically.
