Was researching domestic abuse and I found this blog post. The shirt they show below is just disgusting.
As we have seen through the media coverage of Rihanna’s domestic assault, survivors of Domestic Abuse and Rape often go through horrors following the assault. They are blamed, questioned, doubted, and just generally re-victimized… this is something that needs to change. The following is a list of common misconceptions concerning rape and domestic assault. With this information you should be able to better understand what survivors of these tragedies go through, and what kinds of comments and beliefs are harmful to their recovery.
Its up to all of us to change the social climate that survivors face by holding individuals responsible for the misconceptions that they have… educate yourself, so you can educate others. Together, we can change the way survivors are treated.
