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 sexual experience across their lifespans. Groups such as the National Sexual Violence Resource Center who trumpet the utterly bogus "1 in 71 men are raped" statistic are NOT interested in listening to or supporting male survivors. That stat is cherrypicked to make it appear as though male sexual 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 sexual abuse and to put fake allies on notice.
I'm so proud to share my story as a survivor. https://youtu.be/EqVmHWwSpYQ

Hello, I am a doctoral student conducting a research study on help-seeking behaviors after experiencing sexual assault. If you are 18 years or older and had an unwanted sexual experience, please consider taking part in my confidential online survey. You can access the survey in the following link: https://und.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3mxQbbcqgDohdHf Results from this survey will assist researchers in understanding what services may be most helpful for survivors. The survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. Please contact me with any questions about this opportunity.
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/. Second, be cautious about sharing information you deem sensitive on social media. 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. However, performing the security changes outlined by Facebook in the provided link will allow you to disable this feature from occurring. 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.
Hi everyone! My name is Mackenzie Gillen, and I am running a study for my master’s thesis about perceptions of hypothetical sexual assault scenarios. I am looking for voluntary participation in a 20-minute online study that is completely confidential. I am hoping to gather both sexual assault survivors and individuals who have not experienced sexual assault to complete this survey. I will have no way of identifying an individual who participated, nor will I have any way of connecting an individual’s answers to a participant. So, if you decide to complete this short survey, please know that it is safe to be completely honest. Please feel free to share this post and spread the word about my study. Additionally, it is important to note that this survey will not ask any individual to say anything about their own sexual assault. All of the questions are strictly perceptions on hypothetical sexual assault scenarios. The only personal questions will be demographics (gender, age, and race), whether you were a victim of sexual assault (yes/no), and whether you reported your assault to a law enforcement officer (yes/no/was not a victim). Please consider completing this quick survey and aiding sexual assault research if you are 18 or older. Thank you for your time, Mackenzie Gillen
