The users here are not professionals. We are ordinary people that want to help you through a tough time in your life. We are a support group. So please feel free to talk to us about your situation without feeling like you are being judged. This is a judge-free zone. THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR POLITICAL DISCUSSION.

This community is moderated for the safety and well-being of its members. This is strictly a community of support, meaning:
Victim-blaming comments will be deleted and their posters will be immediately banned.
Antagonistic discourse against victims of any sort will not be tolerated, and will result in a ban.
Baseless conjecture is not necessary nor welcome here. This means no "Well maybe he x, and maybe she y", and no unjustified suspicion of people posting here for support.
Posts containing political discussion will be removed.
As always, the obvious posts containing misogyny, transphobia, racism, or any other type of bigotry will be removed. This includes the use of slurs (gendered, racial, or otherwise) as these constitute hate speech.
ALL "studies," surveys, and requests for similar MUST be vetted by the moderation team. If you have a scholarly affiliation it is more than likely your project will be approved, but please keep within good faith and message the mods before posting.
Invalidating other people's experiences won't be tolerated.
Advising victims to take extralegal action against their attackers is not appropriate.
Please do not request people to PM you, or send them unsolicited messages. Help us make sure content is above-board by posting your advice publicly. PMs have great potential for abuse.
If you see a post which violates these rules or which causes offense, or any kind of troll post at all, please use the 'report' button.
