We Are Survivors

Why I started this group

I'm very passionate about mental health and abuse awareness, mainly due to my own expieriances. I am very open about my past, which I know is something that many do not like, but I do not see why I should stay silent - afterall that's what the abusers told me to do and I can't let them win can I?

I know that my work and my speaking out will not end abuse, discrimination ans suffering, but if I can just let people know that they are not alone and do not have to suffer in silence and maybe if I can make a few people stop and think then I am happy with that

Greetings. I am the founder of two groups which I formed in response to the glorification of various forms of abuse, such as bullying and rape. The groups in question are GentleGiantesses and Sweet-And-Statuesque.

Works that involves female muscle and giantesses are rife with stories, pictures, and more that depict bullying, abuse, rape, even torture, murder, etc. as being sexy and desirable. I am of the opinion that creating works that glamorize abuse in any form is wrong, and that knowingly spreading and reinforcing the stereotype that abusing someone in any way is crossing a very serious moral line.

As such, I will be sending affiliation requests to you from both groups, and I would like help in setting up links to sites to help those who are dealing with abusive situations. Abuse in all its forms is a very serious problem facing everyone, and it is not something that should be glamorized. And so, I hope that perhaps we can help each other get that message out, and perhaps help those in need better help themselves.

As Nitor-Quod-Bits is a joint account, we (AngelicusCadere and PennaAter) cannot say it is a victim of abuse. However, Bits And Pieces, the story we are writting together, has rape as one of its main themes.

The story may be a bit gloom, but the overall message is one of hope and courage.

So, we were wondering... Would we be accepted as member of this group if we were to ask?

Hi there!

I know that I may not be a member of this group at the moment, but I have gone through many of the same things you did. I have gone through the hard times, I am a "survivor" and I have lost someone close to me to Suicide. I fight depression to this day and I fight the urges to self-harm.

In light of Suicide Prevention Day this past week, I created a Photography contest.

The theme is HOPE.

You can check it out here: [link]


I wanted to leave this by saying thank you for your time - the members and Admins of this group.

And if you ever need anyone to talk to (yes, you), I am open.
I understand.

So... would anyone be interested in doing this with me, or donating? I'm thinking I'm going to do this, and I think it might be something great for us all to do, as I feel this fundraiser is doing it's best to be a beacon of light and hope for a very, very dark and shadowy mental place.


"The Out of the Darkness Overnight is a fundraising walk of up to 18 miles throughout the night, designed to raise funds and make a bold statement to bring the issue of suicide out into the light. The Overnight is organized by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those affected by suicide."

My mom survived mental abuse for 15 years. I was stuck in the middle. My dad then came to Christ and all is well now.
