    Sexual Assault Awareness Month

    in Entertainment

    Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault.

She has provided consultation to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office regarding cross-cultural aspects of sexual assault and domestic violence, and worked with local private attorneys on the cultural aspects of their cases.

    Judgement Creates the illusions of life?

    in Spirituality

    Many Masters and teachers thoguth out time have said to us do ot judge? Yet we still do and it is my sense that we are conditioned to do this. When we pass any form of judgement all we see is what we have judged not what we are truly witnessing. I use witnessing with full intention for we are here to witness ourselves and our lives. As we judge we actually judge oursleves in that life. Judging takes us away from our full experience. Judging also has the ability to limit our lives. If we judge ourselves as human then how may we experience our own divinity. Divine is not limited but human is? If one lives in an objective manner then they will aways see life as it is not as it isn't? This and so much more on this weeks show. Join Liara and Steven for a light and lively conversation.

  • Women Veterans Speak

    in Military

    Ruth Moore Act HR 671: The bill would allow a statement by a survivor of military sexual trauma to be considered sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The House approved the bill by voice vote Monday night. Cathy Santos contacted the office of Congresswoman Pingree and shared the following comments as being the only victim of sexual assaults to fight the government and win while service with a 15-6 Pentagon Investigation.


    I was concerned about the language here that appears to give sexual assault victims way too much power over their authority. These subordinates while serving, in my interpretation will be able to provide a statement - now, in my experience of 22 years, I know that their are a great deal of women who have been denied the opportunity to tell their stories and to get the remedy they deservied; however, I also believe that the national security is being compromised by the command's ability to lead without these restrictions placed on them by advocates in the civilians world.


    .


    How is it possible to lead a command in combat with thiese type who have no real training for war because of the restricitions placed on their leaders.


    Sexual assault victims and sexual harassment is a complicated matter and victims die, are murdered in combat. There are no protections for these victims when in combat or other remote environments and the power to use "rape" over their superiors is not to be taken lightly.


     


    Civilians can not protect victims of rape on active duty, it will get worst for them, and no civilian can protect those who are given the power to provide a "statement" that becomes the only evidence required when false accusations are made, and reputations and careers are ruined - this is a poorly worded legislation and the military is not moving forward as a result. I will be following up.
