The Vancouver Rape Relief website is gone.
Vancouver Rape Relief is a
supposed Rape Cris & Counseling service, but they have a LONG and
documented history of abusive treatment towards ANY woman who doesn't
fit what they define as a proper woman.
When I was going to WAVAW for counseling they had THREE FULL BINDERS of NOTHING but womens' complaints about being treated like shit at VRR.
- Punk rock girls who were slut-shamed
- Fat women accused of attention seeking
- Party girls told to dress like ladies
- Trans women outright told to get the fuck out.
- Ftms and butch lesbians told to come back when they learn how to be women.
I once called VRR for crisis counseling, before I knew their rep. The
woman I was talking to openly laughed at me, told me to clear the line
for "real" victims, and hung up on me.
I would normally never
gloat at the failing of a rape shelter crisis agency, but they have
NEVER been that. They were a professional RadFem breeding ground and
If this means they've finally been shut down? HAPPY PENNY.
