'Woke' Women's Rape Survivors Group Tells Victims To 'Get Over It'
Sarah was a victim of childhood rape. She found herself a victim again as an adult because of unhealthy relationships with men growing up. She has more than a few reasons to feel uncomfortable around men, especially when discussing her trauma. So why would her survivor's group allow a man to sit in and listen to the women's stories?
DailyMail said that the all-women group told Sarah to suck it up when they allowed a trans to sit in on meetings against her protests and fears:
"A rape victim who thought she had found a safe all-female space to help her come to terms with the sexual violence she endured has told how she was left deeply troubled by the arrival of a biologically male trans woman 'with no obvious female attributes'.
The mother of two joined a survivors' group seeking support over the rape and childhood abuse that had cast a traumatic shadow over her life.
But she has told The Mail on Sunday how she felt the sanctuary and trust of the sessions were violated by the 6ft newcomer in masculine clothes."
Charity bosses insisted the trans woman had every right to be there as they allow people to define their gender for themselves, saying: 'We do not police gender.'
But the mother, Sarah, said she was disturbed and panicked by the presence of someone with such a masculine appearance.
She explained: 'When I was sexually abused as a child, I was tricked into it by a man. Then I was raped as an adult by a man and felt tricked into it, so I don't always trust men.'
She added she was left feeling even more uncomfortable after sharing her experience of sexual violence in front of the trans woman, who did not speak about any abuse she [he] may have suffered."
"She said: 'I thought, 'How can you let women down so badly?' You're supposed to be a service for women who have experienced sexual violence. How can you completely disregard that the main thing about sexual violence is that you feel triggered by males?"
There are all-inclusive or co-ed type survivors groups so why didn't this man find company among those groups? Now Sarah now faces leaving the once all-women's safe haven because her fears were ignored. Leaders basically told her to 'get over it'...
