Some people may have long term problems but because of twitter and the internet they can now reach out for the help, relief or guidance.

Description: what is “STOP & REPORT” basically it’s “Decide that here and now that you matter and should not be a victim anymore and realize that you matter” “Get off your ass Get off the computer stop talking about it and report the problem!”
Computer use can be monitored and is impossible to completely clear. If you are afraid your internet and/or computer usage might be monitored, please use a safer computer, and/or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−SAFE(7233) or TTY 1−800−787−3224.
“Stop and Report”
Often, the people that are talking about their lives are going through abusive situations and have not reported it to the police. This Cause that I came up with is to help inform, and encourage many men and women to stop get off of the computer and report the problem to the police.
“Venting” is one thing, letting people know about your life and living it in the past and overcoming it and sharing it for the purposes of helping others is one thing, but to use it as a disadvantage to lure a man or women to have sex, or to gain attention is not ok with me, and if your being abused in any form including domestic violence issues, or have been raped there are things that need to be immediately done to protect you! “DO NOT” waist time chatting about the problem get off the computer and “STOP & REPORT” it! Take care of it!
[The dark side of “Venting” via the internet is that it can be the cause of your “death”]
“I am sure we are all aware of several people including a known celebrity who tweeted about an attack and did not call 911”
Many people laugh about their issues masking the problem but never willing to report it because they are either too afraid, or in some cases actually enjoy the abuse.
It is often at times veiled with Joking and humor so that people would never know that anything was wrong until it was too late. In some cases and in my own life experiences in regards to child abuse parent’s are always threatening children to keep quiet or using a sibling to make threats.
“My mom used to tell me that if I had ever told anyone that I was abused my sister would be taken away and our family would be broken up and it would be my fault”
Another angle of an abusive situation was the abuse my mother was going through at the hands of my Step-Father and my witnessing it.
Driving down the freeway one day and my mother and father were arguing, my mother leaned over and shifted a gear in the truck and we almost went off the road into a wall. Years later I mentioned that to my step-dad and he said “You were there?” Point is parents are often oblivious to their children’s presence at all during the abuse they are not aware of what the child is witnessing.
If you are being abused “Stop & Report” it or know someone who is, please contact your local authorities. You never know whose life you might be saving! Your not hurting me your only hurting yourself when you don't!!!
