Breaking The Hypnotic Trance To Keep The Abuse A Secret!
"Speak up.. speak up... speak up. The only one you will scare away is your future x husband" and our future x military service! (Reviving Ophelia)
Three cheers for the sexual assault survivors who are speaking up both in this documentary and in their lawsuit.
Yes it really did happen!!
It is a criminal justice issue and a human rights issue!
Sexually abused individuals often go into a hypnotic trance to keep the abuse a secret and know what it feels like to be in the perpetrators shoes.
Breaking the silence, is breaking the trance that perpetuates the cycle of abuse!
As a therapist with some experience working at the rape crisis center, I was horrified just observing the affect of the patriarchal woman in charge of the sexual assault prevention program. All she could talk about was the buddy program as if this would stop predators stalking their prey?
One rape survivor was blamed "what can you expect for walking down a hallway alone with a bunch of drunken soldiers in each room".
The military must attract extreme narcissists and alcoholics who are so cut off from their own feelings that they do not honor others.
I pray that the survivors will have a successful appeal and the military will be held accountable for these injustices!
