Cocktails for a Cause: Shatter the Silence!

cocktails for a cause

Sexual assault happens. More often than reported. One in three women and one in six men will be the victim of a sexual assault in their lifetime. For a victim, it opens up a whole new world, and not one that would be a chosen road. Sexual assault, besides being a physically violent event or at the very least, extremely invasive, it is embarrassing and hard to deal with. It can, and usually does, affect the rest of your life. It can affect all of the relationships in your life, new and old. It will be hard to trust people anymore. Many people shut out everyone in their life, even their family and loved ones. Unfortunately, many people who are sexually assaulted never seek help in dealing with the emotionally issues that arise from it. Getting help is a great way to actually start dealing with what happened to you. Talk about it – with a friend, a family member, your clergy, or a helpline/center, like the Rape Recovery Center. Talk, talk, talk! It will help you, even if it takes a while. Remember, others who have also been through it can be quite helpful in talking with.

From the Rape Recovery Center website:

What should I do if I am sexually assaulted?
1. Find a safe environment – anywhere away from the attacker. Ask a trusted friend to stay with you for moral support.
2. Know that what happened was not your fault and that now you should do what is best for you.
3. Report the attack to police by calling 911. If you want more information, a crisis counselor on the Rape Recovery Center Crisis Line (801-467-7273) can help you understand the process.

To preserve evidence of the attack, don’t bathe or brush your teeth.

Write down all the details you can recall about the attack and the attacker.

To preserve forensic evidence, ask the hospital to conduct a rape kit exam. Costs for this exam will be covered by Crime Victim Reparations. You can receive this exam whether you choose to involve the criminal justice system or not.

If you suspect you have been drugged, ask that a urine sample be collected. The sample will need to be analyzed later on by a forensic lab.

4. If you know that you will never report, there are some things you should still consider:
Get medical attention. Even with no physical injuries, it is important to determine the risks of STDs and pregnancy.
Call the Rape Recovery Center Crisis Line (801-467-7273) or the National Sexual Assault Hotline (1-800-656-4673) for free, confidential counseling, 24 hours a day.

5. Recognize that healing from rape takes time. Give yourself the time you need.

6. Know that it’s never too late to call. Even if the attack happened years ago, the Rape Recovery Center can still help. Many victims do not realize they need help until months or years later.

What should I do if I am a victim of incest?
First, know that this is not your fault. No one deserves to be abused. Get some help. You do not have to handle this on your own.

Tell a trusted adult. If you can’t talk to a parent, can you talk to… A teacher? A school counselor? A friend’s parent? Your doctor?A church leader?

If you do not have any trusted adults in your life, you can also call Child Protective Services (CPS) at the Division of Child and Family Services.

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES (CPS)…………(801) 538-4100
24-Hour Child Abuse Reporting………… (801) 538-4377
24-Hour Toll Free………………………… (800) 678-9399

Your local police department can also help you contact CPS.

Be prepared. Not every adult, even trusted adults, is able to help. You may need to tell more than one person before you find someone who can help.

If you need help thinking through these options, call the Rape Recovery Center Crisis Line (801-467-7273) at any time, 24 hours a day. (Be aware that mandatory reporting laws apply to crisis line workers, if you disclose personal information.)

Know that it’s never too late to call. Even if the incest happened years ago, the Rape Recovery Center can still help. Many victims do not realize they need help until months or years later.

Remember that no one deserves to be abused. Help is available.

Rape Recovery Center

Pervert Alley: Brock Turner sexually assaulted an unconscious woman and ONLY got 6 months in JAIL; His father thinks it is too much – but it is way too lenient!!!!

BrockTurner mug
Brock Turner – convicted sex offender

This is unbelievable! His father is upset over his sentence, saying it is too much and has shattered Brock. The victim? Never mentioned, but I can tell you that her emotional scars and battle will last a lifetime. It has totally shattered her. Dan Brock also said it was too harsh “for 20 minutes of action”. I CANNOT believe that someone could abase a victim and the crime in such a way as he did right there. He also is upset that poor Brock has to register as the sex offender that he is for life.

Okay, I realize that Brock is his son, but has Dan Turner ever thought about the victim of a sexual assault? What if the victim was his wife, daughter, sister or mother? Would he have such a flippant attitude about sex crimes? If he thinks that a crime should be valued at the amount of time it takes, boy does he have some low morals. Murder can take 1 minute if someone is shot in the head or heart. By Dan Turner’s standards, why should he go to prison for life for 1 minute of action? I certainly hope he rethinks his position on these things.

What Dan Turner obviously does not realize is that his son Brock GOT OFF EASY, with just a slap on the wrist. He faced 10 years in prison, which is exactly what he should have been sentenced to. Brock Turner SHOULD be sitting in that state prison right now, learning exactly how it feels to be the victim of sexual assault. I personally believe that there is a good chance he will reoffend.

Brock Turner should have plenty of time to assess himself and his life and the damage he has caused. Mind you, he has never admitted to his crime or even expressed any kind of remorse. This does not help the victim, either. He was convicted of these crimes. He was caught in the act. There is no doubt of his guilt. There is only doubt as to his moral character (I don’t believe he has one). It also saddens me to see so much sympathy for Brock Turner and his future, which seemed so full of promise. But the victim of his assault had a life to live as well. Now, hers is turned upside down. Maybe she will recover, maybe not. More often than not, they keep at least part of it with them for the rest of their lives. According to the National Women’s Study, this is what has been found with the victims:

3 times more likely to suffer from a major depressive disorder.
4 times more likely than a “non-victim” to contemplate suicide and 13 times more likely to attempt suicide.
6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
13 times more likely to abuse alcohol and 26 times more likely to abuse drugs to numb the emotional pain.

The Turners need to remember that for the victim of Brock’s “20 minutes of action”, the victim will have a lifetime of consequences. The offender should also have consequences, and not easy ones. Prison should be mandatory, along with lifelong sex offender registry. Please remember: no means no, no matter when it is said (does not matter if you were kissing for 10 minutes and then the person says no-STOP) and an unconscious or impaired person cannot give consent.

In conclusion, Dan Turner should be grateful that his son got such a light sentence that slaps the face of the victim. I think both Dan and Brock Turner might learn more if they volunteered some time at their local rape recovery center or rape crisis center. Maybe if they learn some compassion and empathy for victims, they may have a new outlook on this heinous, violent crime.
