October will be soon upon us, and while many enjoy lighthearted festivities with Jack 'o' Lanterns and candy corn, October is also Domestic Assault Awareness Month. In aim of this, we at DangerousLove have teamed up with several other profiles, and are promoting and spreading awareness on Wattpad; as certain works of fiction misconceive and romanticize domestic assault and abuse.
Throughout September and October, @DangerousLove are compiling a collection of real-life accounts called "Stronger Than You", where users may submit stories and give advice anonymously if they wish about how they survived and overcame domestic abuse. This collection is open to all, regardless of culture, age, gender or sexuality.
If you wish to participate, then please continue to read.
This is a very sensitive subject, and will be dealt with as such. Any comments that are insensitive, obscene and disrespectful; will be removed and the user muted. We are serious about this. There will be no bashing the narrators, as they are sharing their narratives with you, and want to help raise awareness on how to stop this.
One of the key ways to learn something is to ask questions. As such, we are not stopping you from asking questions on certain subjects you need clarity on. Being intentionally impolite will not be tolerated.
There are diverse types of Domestic Assault tales out there, and many of them will really be heart breaking. Unfortunately, we feel is necessary to tell you all that false stories will not be tolerated. Before they are posted, the stories will be read by a member of the Wattpad personnel, and we kindly ask that you do not make up stories just to be included in the book. This would be really upsetting to those who are pouring their heart and soul into their honest narratives.
Please send the following to us via PM. No Links to books created, as we can't Copy and Paste it into the book, because of the copyright rules on Wattpad.
