Taking Sexual Assault Seriously Online and Offline

Sexist jokes, r**e jokes, and victim-blaming comments may not seem like that big of a deal because they are verbal and not physical, but they contribute to the same way of thinking that fuels real-life violence.

When we talk about creating online spaces that are safe from abuse and respectful for everyone, that must mean a space where r**e jokes are not tolerated.

Can you help us, PLEASE! In ANY way.
NSVRC are fake allies to male survivors. One in four men will be the victims of at least one unwanted s*xual experience across their lifespans. Groups such as the National Sexual Violence Resource Center who trumpet the utterly bogus "1 in 71 men are r**ed" statistic are NOT interested in listening to or supporting male survivors. That stat is cherrypicked to make it appear as though male s*xual assault/abuse isn't really a problem in the United States, and is another way these groups try to pit male and female survivors against each other. It's purely political. It's time to stop the pointless bias against male survivors of s*xual abuse and to put fake allies on notice.
I'm so proud to share my story as a survivor. https://youtu.be/EqVmHWwSpYQ

Hello everyone. My name is Jamie Benavidez-Hatzis. I am a doctoral researcher currently conducting a study of women’s experiences with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I would like to invite you to visit my page @JustNoticeStudy for more information about the study, including eligibility criteria, what your participation would involve as well as how to reach me directly with any questions, or to express interest in participation. Some of this information is available to you in the recruitment flyer attached to this post. You can click on the flyer to make it bigger, but it does not contain any links, so clicking on it does not take you anywhere you don’t want to go; it just makes the flyer more viewable. Participants will receive a $25 Visa gift card for their time. This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of Adelphi University. You can visit Adelphi here https://www.adelphi.edu, and verify that I am adjunct faculty and a doctoral student here https://socialwork.adelphi.edu/au_news/jamie-r-hatzis/ . For your information, my faculty advisor is Dr. Subadra Panchanadeswaran, 516-877-4310, or [email protected] . The Adelphi University IRB Chair is Dr. Carolyn Springer, 516-877-4753, or [email protected] . Your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information are very important to me. Please note that the privacy and confidentiality of your shared content on social media is not 100% guaranteed. For instance, while you may only share information with a select group of individuals, someone in your social network may in turn share your information more widely. There are steps you can take however, to protect yourself online. First, here is a link to Facebook’s security help section outlining how to make changes to your security settings to ensure you are protected while on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/help/799880743466869/.

If you are interested in this study, consider contacting me directly using the contact information indicated on the flyer. Finally, while I encourage you to visit my page to learn more about my study if it interests you, I am requesting that you not “Like” the page, as doing so may affect the content in your newsfeed.

To further protect your privacy and confidentiality, I will periodically perform a “purge” of any “Likes” on the page, and visitors to the page will not be able to post or comment on the study; it is for information purposes only. If you know of someone who may be interested in my study, please be mindful of their privacy and confidentiality; do not share the study page by tagging that person or any friends or family in a post. Instead, consider sharing the study page or my contact information privately offline, or by DM. The provided link above also details how to prevent others from tagging you, as well as how to remove unwanted tags.
