  • I already posted this on my own post but I wanted to share this with you specifically;

    “It’s easier to disqualify the evidence of cruelty than to end it, especially if that cruelty has been made to seem as inevitable as sexualized violence or war itself. A step toward revealing the cost of such cruelty — and our will to end it — is to stop stigmatizing the victim. The simple act of changing the diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to Post Traumatic Stress Injury would help to make clear that the injured party is not at fault. Naming reality is the first step toward making it visible — and changing it.”
