The Garneau Sisterhood is YOU - Sisterhood's gonna get ya....

Sisterhood's gonna get ya....

 
 
Okay. So! The idea of this board came about after we received a number of emails regarding perpetrators in the area. While we're certain that there is value for people in just being able to talk about what happened to them, we also wanted to provide an open space where folks in the community could post info about perps for others to see - peeping toms, rapists, etc. if they felt comfortable doing that.

We're thinking of this as your way to make a "poster" and put it up in the community without having to hit the streets in minus forty weather!

So go ahead and post info about creeps you want others to know about. Just click "comment"!

Thanks Sistahood!

living in garneau has felt much safer to me since strong opinionated folks such as yourselves have helped to shape the neighborhood. i'll certainly post any creepers or creepy behaviour to give others the heads up.
cheers!

I just want to say that you ladies (and men too?) are making a difference. YOU ROCK! I don't live in Edmonton, but your message and your courage is felt far beyond the physical distance and imaginary borders that separate us. This site is a symbol of what solidarity can accomplish ... and how far our collective ideals can travel and empower.
Please never stop...

Keep on Rockin' in the freeworld

The reversal of the responsibility - to place the responsibility for rape clearly on the RAPIST is such a great message, and one that, as Lise Gottell spoke on Jan. 7, 2010, has been muffled by the police, with their and others' emphasis on women 'being careful', the end result of which is for women to never leave their homes for fear of who is out there, never explore their city or nation, never be on their own.
Go Garneau sisterhood!

While, Rape is of course a terrible and heinous crime that all too often goes unpunished. Some of your statements border on the langauge of violent vigilantes.

I have to say that in my eventual report of the 8 sexual perpetrators that I was a victim of before my 18th birthday (ranging from age 3 onward)....the police were incredibly helpful. They were the SECOND person/ group (the other was a native nurse in her 50's at the STI Clinic at the General Hospital who also told me it wasn't my fault) to tell me that they believed me, that it wasn't my fault (and how could it have been? I was a child), found a traumatologist (big word for someone who robs you blind for counselling services when you've been raped) for me although I declined to see her due to brackets of her being more about money than helpingness and stayed in contact with me for months after the report and tried to help me access services (that simply don't exist or I was refused because my case wasn't severe enough and because I was "adversarial" when I asked for advice from SACE on if I should report to RCMP/ EPS or Military Police (so said Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton)).

I hope that y'all (I can't help adding it because Edmonton is such a redneck shit hole) will begin to see with some actual interaction with people who have dealt with the police that they are actually very helpful when it comes to sexual assault reports and take them very seriously. Other groups such as OPTIONS Sexual Health, Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, mental health services, Child and Family Social Services, hospital staff at the U Podunk....not as helpful and actually quite fear mongering that the "police don't care". They did.

After 26 years of trying to report what happened to me and being told that they wouldn't care (parents, Dr's, social workers, teachers etc), or not helping me to file a police report when I first disclosed at age 12 which is obviously an EPIC FAIL on all adults I knew as a kid....and was then subsequently abused again while a ward of the state when I was taken away by Child and Family Social Services......the police WERE THE ONLY ONES WHO CRIED when they read my 24 page single line typed police report. THE ONLY ONES WHO SHOWED ANY EMOTION WHATSOEVER, the other ones had nonsense political agendas and would try to tell me when to speak, what I could and could not talk about, how I needed to heal and if I chose not to take their bad advice (like taking boundaries courses and self esteem courses which is complete and utter fucking nonsense because it's rapists and child molesters who need boundaries not people who go the Sexual Assault Centre/Mental health for counselling/publicly funded counsellors at Support Network etc as for the self esteem thing it's hard when you're told by same same people that you don't have self esteem when you in fact do and just can't quite cope and understand why they won't talk about sexual abuse and keep sliding that big messy ball of shit under the rug) would guilt trip me and tell me I didn't want to get better...blah, blah, blah blah blah.

That is not to say that I agree with the outcome of my police report in terms of what action is being taken against the males and females (yes females rape children) who abused me......but the BEST response that I got in all of this was from the police. (Which is unfortunate because I realize that I believed SACE/mental health workers/social workers/teachers/friend/family when they said they wouldn't care....and unfortunate because I'm about as anti militaristic police society as they come).

I think they (police) might have a hard time broadcasting that (look at the feet in mouth problems recently towards various "ethnic" communities) with the rules of law and other bullshit (I'm a law school drop out) but in my case they were very very helpful while ALL OF THE OTHER non for profits/ charities / government helpers in the city of Podunk were EPIC FAILS.

One of the hardest parts of making this post is that I've been berated by people who didn't have good experiences with their own report to police and have been told to shut up about the fact that my experience was helpful and I that I should be so "stupid" as to thank them greatly for their work on such a stomach churning case. Yeah, you heard it....it's sad....disappointing that when I had a good experience in dealing with police and dismal experiences dealing with non legal helping services for sexual assault.....now I still get treated like shit.....except at times by people (men and women have chicane'ed me) who are trying to open the conversation about sexual assault.

So, I am saddened by the auto response.

This is exactly what I experienced with people when I first disclosed as a child and then was shuffled from charity to sexual assault centre to mental health worker and back again.

Number 1) Go to the police and write a police report about having been sexually assaulted.

Number 2) Report the sexual assault to the police

Number 3) Don't let "helpful" people like Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, U of Podunk Sexual Assault Centre convince you that they care and can do something and will "help" you, they can do that after you take the step to report sexual assault to police. The reporting is one of the most cathartic things that you can do.

There are numerous paid staff on the Serious Crimes investigation unit who keep track of the names, descriptions, possible whereabouts of perpetrators, they also work very hard on finding them.....it is bullshit that you are telling people (men are raped) to go first to the SACE / U Podunk SAC because in my 3 interactions with them (once at 12 when I first asked them for help, once at 22 when I suffered a brain injury and needed help to deal with the emotions from the sexual assault that came out with my brain injuries and finally at 29 and their epic fail of telling me to talk to a lawyer about if I should report the incidences to MP's (military police), RCMP or EPS.....because they are somehow more "comforting" "care more" will "support you"...if you want to believe that so be it....but THEY WILL NOT HELP A PERSON TO MAKE A POLICE REPORT!!!! They will spout some BS about how it's up to the individual and their personal will and strength to do it for themselves......save yourself the headache of nonsense talk and make the police report first.
