Many sports organisations do not have adequate mechanisms in place to help protect frightened athletes and to exclude harassers and abusers. . It is not true when some people think that if the victim did not resist it does not count as abuse. This thought totally wrong and hurtful because it will makes the victims difficult to speak out and more likely to blame themselves. The examples of sexual abuse are rough sexual activity, rape and forcible sodomy either oral or anal sex.
The existing laws and regulations are not adequate to address the assault and exploitation of disabled women in Canada. Women with mental disabilities who have experienced sexual assault may not pursue legal action toward the perpetrator. This may be due to the widespread belief “that the woman will be unable to participate in or withstand a criminal investigation” (Benedet and Grant, 2014, p. 134). The inquiries and questionings involved in criminal investigations are often lengthy, intrusive matters for those involved, in addition to doubts of the victim 's claims. Next, women with mental disabilities or illnesses may be targeted due to the fact that they are less likely to accuse the assailant.
Abuse is an act that happens throughout society that should not be taken lightly. There are two major categories for these actions, either physical or emotional. In most cases when somebody is abused, it is usually both types of abuse. Personally to me, I feel that physical abuse is worse than emotional abuse based on long-term effects, scars, and pain. On average, twenty people are physically abused by their partner per minute.
When services are based on the idea that women of color who are homeless or who are addicted to drugs are the ones who are most susceptible to domestic violence (Donnelly, 13). These stereotypes keep women of color from taking advantage of services while shelters are less likely to be easily given by shelters because they may make the women go through stringent criteria to take part in programs. White privilege can keep shelters from truthfully recognizing their biases and stereotypes and moving past them in order to effectively help these women. As well, this lack of recognition of biases can keep shelters from acknowledging the effect of race and racism on women of color and the unique issues that they are faced with and leads to shelters lacking in particular services that these women may require (Donnelly, 13). “We don’t have specific programs because their needs are actually the same…it doesn’t matter what nationality she is” (Donnelly, 22).
It is a challenge for police departments to prevent domestic violence due to Battered Wife Syndrome. Battered Wife Syndrome is a theory that abused spouses decide against leaving their partners out of fear of further violence, finding themselves as the cause, or their spouse will eventually cease the abuse. As a result, spouses will not report or retract charges, leaving police departments
The media is filled with violent news and stories of injustice in our society. Yet, Intimate partner violence (IPV) is rarely discussed or covered in the news. The term "intimate partner violence" describes physical violence, sexual violence, stalking and psychological aggression (including coercive acts) by a current or former intimate partner (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2010). IPV is a serious issue which affects millions of people worldwide. However, IPV is becoming a growing concern in the United States; and it’s become prevalent in the less educated Latino communities.
Depression and other similar disorders lead to one attempting to commit or committing suicide. There are several warning flags for suicide, such as self-harm and suicidal ideation. In the LGBT community, it is believed that the increased stress is resulting from external and internalized homophobia and transphobia resulting in these self-destructive behaviors being so much more prevalent in the younger community than they are in the heterosexual cisgender community (McDermott p.815). Gay and bisexual men are four times more likely to ideate and attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers; lesbian and bisexual women are twice as likely (Mereish p.1). Transgender individuals are at an even higher risk, as half of the transgender participants reported suicidal ideation, and a quarter of them had reported attempting suicide (Johnson p.56).
There are many people who feel that helping someone die is not ethical. These people argue making a laws for it and carry an actual action When many parents teach their kids to help others as much as they can, most of the parents may not include assisted suicide because that’s consider ‘murder,’ not ‘helping.’ From the standpoint of people who hasn’t been in a situation where their loved one suffer so much that it will seem to be better to let the patient rest in peace rather than making him suffer.
In long-term relationships, it is hard for a couple to separate, even when the male in the relationship is being abusive towards his partner being the female because the female is simply scared of the consequences, also, in the journal ‘Female domestic violence victims ' experiences of hospital care’ it states that “Several women chose not to disclose the domestic violence because their partner was present whilst being questioned by the health care professional” Gasser, H. I. (2008). Female domestic violence victims ' experiences of hospital care--a literature review. P295., In my opinion, I don’t think any partner should be in the same room as the abused individual because there could be a lot of missing information if the suspect is present during the questioning about the assault. While the victim being, the female is being questioned about the assault she could possibly be scared mentally while the health care professional is asking her questions because the person who abused her is watching her at the same time, I believe that when the abused individual is in the room as the health care professional and the abuser is not, the victim of the domestic violence can tell the truth about what really happened and justice could be served, there were a lot of cases where the spouse simply didn’t say anything because they were scared of the consequences because for one if the abuser finds out most likely they will abuse the victim even
For example, when a patient is frustrated and acting out verbally to the staff, it would be necessary to address exactly why these feelings are present. When the nurse spread the word that the patient was more difficult to work with, the oncoming nurse was immediately wary of that patient. While not all nurses will take that kind of information to heart, some will. It will impact the quality of care that the patient deserves because the nurse will more likely spend her time with her other patients, than with the difficult patients. His needs may not be fully met because the nurse wanted to avoid any difficult
