Nothing that a woman does justifies sexual assault. Period. The author¡¯s defensiveness about being painted with that brush does nothing to dissuade that reading; she is blaming women for sexual assault.</p> <p>Yoffe argues that the common denominator in the cases of women being sexually assaulted by their male classmates is copious amounts of alcohol. In fact, the common denominator is assault. If, as Yoffe suggests, some of the men who perpetrate these assaults are not thinking clearly because they are drunk, then perhaps they are the ones who should not drink. They are, after all, the perpetrators.</p> <p>It is despicable to suggest that the solution is to tell women to stop drinking so much to curtail sexual assault. First, sexual assault does not take place because women drink. Second, if women curtail their drinking habits there will still be sexual assault.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-best-of-cwhn"> <div class="field-label">Best of CWHN:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Best of CWHN </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="/c1f/en/node/46237" target="_blank">read more</a></p> To the point Wed, 22 Jan 2014 19:50:40 +0000 cwhn 46237 at/c1f Understanding fibromyalgia https://www.google.com//c1f/en/network/understandingfibromyalgia <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-nm-pub-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Mon, 2013-10-07</span> </div> </div> </div> <h6><em> <hr /> ¡°I have Fibromyalgia Syndrome and was diagnosed when I was 22, over 12 years ago, but few people would know that because it is an invisible disability ¡­ I rarely mention it because there is a certain bias associated with chronic pain conditions especially with one that has such elusive symptoms with no known cause. People don¡¯t get it, they can¡¯t wrap their head around it and so discussing it, say, in a workplace environment can cause negative reactions or work-related discrimination ¡­ In general, people often describe it as that achy flu-like feeling people are familiar with times 10, but&nbsp;</em><em>all</em><em>&nbsp;the time. However, the chronic pain and fatigue aspect of the condition are but a fraction of the syndrome itself.&nbsp;¡°</em><em>&nbsp;&nbsp; </em></h6> <h6>- <a href="http://nmalbert.hubpages.com/" target="_blank">Nikki Albert, blogger</a> <hr /> </h6> <p><strong>By Margaret Parlor</strong></p> <p>Canadians with fibromyalgia struggle not only with real and debilitating symptoms, they also struggle with a health and social services system that has little understanding of their condition. Patients have difficulty finding medical support. They have difficulty getting accommodation at work or at school. They have difficulty qualifying for income support and other disability benefits.</p> <p>Many issues need to be addressed. How is fibromyalgia defined? What are the causes and the impacts?

I struggled with the decision because I am not ashamed of the issues I deal with, and I don¡¯t want to perpetuate the idea that mental illness is something to hide. I realize however, that not everyone sees it that way. I have decided to remain anonymous so that I can be completely open about my experiences without putting myself at risk.</p> <p>I have been off psychiatric drugs for a year, and while things are not always easy, I feel stronger and healthier. I hope that my story can support people who are struggling. I am not suggesting that anyone stop taking prescribed drugs. I can only speak to my experience. It took a long time, but I eventually figured out what was best for me. I wish that for everyone.</p> <p>I was misdiagnosed and overprescribed drugs for years. And when I decided I wanted to stop taking them when I was 34, I encountered huge resistance, was given terrible advice, and was left to sort things out on my own.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-best-of-cwhn"> <div class="field-label">Best of CWHN:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Best of CWHN </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="/c1f/en/network/noquickfix" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 07 Oct 2013 16:14:53 +0000 cwhn 46160 at/c1f
