这是滥权吗?

要理解滥权,我们必须明白,其核心是权力的运作特点。在滥权处境中,一个人会使用权力去伤害、操纵或控制另外一个人。除了恶劣的性侵和身体侵害之外,情感上的虐待行为,如强迫、恐吓、威胁、鼓励和谴责,都可能带来同等程度的伤害。受害人开始觉得越来越无力,结果就越来越倚靠那个施虐者。当施虐者得到更多权力之后,他们甚至开始有一种失去自我的感受。那就变成一个恶性循环,一个陷阱,让受害者更加陷入困境中。在这种毁坏性的处境当中,是不可能谈什么两厢情愿的。

There is Not Enough Being Done to Help Sexual Assault Survivors

Recently, Safe Church Ministry and the Office of Social Justice collaborated to draft an action alert urging you all to write your congress members in order to help achieve justice for many sexual assault survivors. Due to this injustice many perpetrators of sexual assault still run free, and the silence speaks loudly to the survivors.
