Anonymous asked: do you know of any other blogs like yours that deal with healing after rape?

selfcareafterrape:

I vaguely know of plenty- I’m only willing to boost a few because a lot of them make me vastly uncomfortable for at least 8 different reasons. some of them did some racist stuff, some of them are really gross about trans stuff- and either way- a great majority of the folks who follow SCaR are of one marginalized identity or another, and I won’t boost blogs that have been gross and never apologized. There’s a couple that I just.. can’t get past to see if their content is any good because they do the way overly familiar thing and it creeps me out to the point I can’t read past the first page. 

But!

webelieveyou is a go to favorite.

abuseaid isn’t rape specific but…. yea. doesn’t answer many qs though.

if you’re looking content and not questions …

morereasonsyoushouldn’tfuckkids is actually the blog you can thank for the fact that SCaR exists. 

Like i said- I stand behind religioussurvivors. it was done by a SCaR follower because there were some people who asked some stuff and I was like ‘I ??????’ and they were like ‘I can handle that!’ and yeaaaa. I would love to see them get more traffic. they could be a pretty cool resource. 

I think everyone else I used to boost is defunct at this point.

and as always- followers can comment with their favorites, I know y’all are more in tune that I am.

Shirley Chisholm

Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm was an American politician, educator, and author. She was a Congresswoman, representing New York’s 12th Congressional District for seven terms from 1969 to 1983. In 1968, she became the first African-American woman elected to Congress. On January 25, 1972, she became the first major-party black candidate for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I want history to remember me not just as the first black woman to be elected to Congress, not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and dared to be herself."

On this date, July 13, in 1972 Shirley Chisholm received 152 first-ballot votes at the 1972 Democratic National Convention. She was the first major-party black candidate for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. During her campaign she survived three assassination attempts.

Legend.
