Common myths about sexual assault
Sexual Assault In Herbal First Aid
In a week time you can serve up to hundreds of people. The charm of a dirt floor clinic and working alongside seasoned herbalists, nurses, doctors and other practitioners has taught me a lot. You see everything from staph infections, mental illness, drug addiction, to broken bones, and also rape. We have lots of herbal protocols or medical protocols for all of the above but it seems there is lack of information about what to do in a sexual assault situation. So here I have compiled a simple how to list in these situations, though these situations are far from simple by personal correspondence with rape crisis workers, personal experience, and extensive research with medical databases like up to date that is the most current information on all medical protocols. And honestly some hospitals are not up to date on how to handle these situations and can sometimes make matters pretty uncomfortable for the victim.
Chemsex First Aid Is Part of Queer Men’s Long History of Activism
C hemsex—or the use of GHB, methamphetamine or mephedrone in sexual settings in the queer and trans community—provides a means for many to experience intimacy that is otherwise hindered by shame and stigma. But chemsex encounters bear risks and potential harms, exacerbated by this stigma, which are most often addressed—if at all—with a focus on prevention. The booklet takes the harm reduction approach of recognizing that queer men practice chemsex, and will continue to do so. Chems provide a great disinhibition from these issues. Many of the interventions proposed for chemsex drugs are similar to those suggested for opioids.
There are many myths and untruths about sexual assault and sexual abuse. These are often disguised as facts or are community held beliefs. These myths can make it hard for people to recover because they tend to blame the victim and defend the perpetrator.
