SAAM (Sexual Assault Awareness Month)

Alright, this month is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), this is very important to spread awareness and prevention. No matter where you are from, everyone needs to be protected and to prevent this from happening to anyone. As a survivor myself, I just want to spread this message to everyone.

To all survivors/victims of sexual assault, you are strong. I’m sorry this happened to you. I know it took a lot of courage to tell someone/anyone you trust about it. You/Anyone don’t deserverse this. It’s not easy to let go because it’s stuck with you forever. Keep holding on, and stay positive.

Now, I’m not really good with words but giving my best shot at this.

Alright, to those who have NOT experienced sexual assault. I’m going to give you some tips, to prevent this from happening.

  1. Always beware of your surroundings and the people with who you hang out with.
  2. Never trust anyone, especially your family members.
  3. If you are attacked, yell, scream, shout or do anything to attract attention.
  4. Don’t talk to strangers.
  5. Always carry your cellphone at all times.
  6. Never accepts rides from strangers who you don’t know.
  7. If you’re going somewhere, always go with people who you trust and not alone.

If you need some more tips, check out these link, and raise awareness. Sexual Assault can happen to anyone at any age, any time, any place, and anywhere. Please protect yourself, and others.

If you are writing a story about sexual assault, and you have any questions, put them down in the comments so we can talk. Remember that you can’t show, nor glorify, and description of it.


Thanks for this :relieved: However, I feel like the only way to make sure it doesn’t happen, it to not be around someone who would do that to you. (Does that make sense?) People who do this are the issue, not me. According to the list, I did basically everything wrong. TW- I wasn’t familiar with the location, I trusted someone I’d known most of my life, I didn’t scream, I didn’t have my cellphone, I got in a car with this person, and I went alone. And I understand that there’s a lot I could have done, but it’s entirely his fault. It’s not because I didn’t try hard enough, it’s because I was with someone who would do that. Sorry, I just get kind of frustrated when I see ways NOT to get a*saulted instead of ways to educate people on why they shouldn’t do it. People who do this to people are so messed up. Thank you for this post, I had no idea that this was this month. And I’m so so sorry that this has happened to you too :yellow_heart::yellow_heart::yellow_heart: Nobody deserves this.

I’ve been trying to write my own story and how I’ve tried to heal from my own experience, but it’s the most difficult story I’ve ever tried to write :slightly_frowning_face:


I’m sorry this happened to you. :weary:

There maybe can always be a reason why the person did it. You may never know their reason for why they would do it to someone. Maybe they had past trauma and put it on others to feel their pain. Maybe, I’m just guessing. But there’s always going to be a reason on why someone would do something so inappropriately. :thinking: :weary:

Yes, this is true. I need to find some information about this.

as a victim of this, just like @AvalonOlivia said, we shouldn’t be teaching people hot not to be raped/assaulted, we should be teaching people not to rape/assault. if u go by this, I did practically everything wrong. But it’s not my fault. I should be free to go alone anywhere I want. the poeple who do rape/assault people are the ones that need to be targeted. But thanks for this :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:


No problem and yeah. I hope my grammar didn’t came way off. Sorry about that.

Agreed, and that’s the thing. Why do they do it? Because of lust? Boredom? Sigh.

I’m trying to find some more information, hm.


Bump, amazing awareness. Thank you for helping educate people and spread awareness.


No problem. I just hoped it helped. :heavy_heart_exclamation:


Hm, did you stop writing it? And it’s important to heal from your experience first, then if you feel having the courage to write your story to spread and raise awareness go for it.

Could I tag some of my friends? Maybe it can help?


Of course. :heavy_heart_exclamation:


oh no it’s not the fault haha. Sorry if came off as a little aggressive

I’ve always wanted to know. like just why??

you already have a lot of info!! I think it’s great how you’re spreading awareness. people usually see it as a topic that shouldn’t be discussed, so I’m glad you’re spreading awareness!! :heart::heart:


Thanks. :heavy_heart_exclamation:

So I got a message from an author, and she replied “Power”, so do you think, power might be the reason?



power? well maybe, but how does someone get power by raping some innocent person? imo, I think lust plays a great deal in it. Also peer pressure, especially amongst males


Here are some wonderful people who might be interested in supporting.

Sorry if you don’t want to be tagged.


Yes, lust. Honestly, like just why? Imagine if they were in our shoes, and they felt the pain we felt.


exactly!! stuff like that seriously fucks up someone’s life. a lot of people don’t even get over it, ever. it’s just so sad y’know :((


It really would mess someone up a lot.


Thanks for the tag :heart:

I needed this :pleading_face:


Agreed. That’s why I don’t like to be relationships because of my past trauma. Heck don’t even start with “Do you have a boyfriend?” I’m not interested in love anymore, so let live my life how I want to live it.
