Emtophile women, who use the acronym MWA to describe themselves as female-identified, are increasingly speaking out about sexual assaults.
They say they are experiencing a double standard when it comes to how they are treated.
But, unlike the MWA, these women are not facing the kind of scrutiny that can come from the larger society.
Instead, they are facing backlash from the broader community, especially from fellow feminists, who say the rhetoric around sexual assault in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged misconduct has made it more difficult for women to report crimes.
“I’ve heard that it’s not okay to be a sexual predator.
That women don’t want to be sexual predators,” one of the women who spoke with Axios said.
“And I’ve heard the same thing in response to other crimes.”
“It’s very frustrating for me because this is a group that is very visible and very visible as being victimized and abused and abused again,” the other woman added.
“It really hurts to see that this is not an issue that has any weight.
This is just another one of those things that we hear from other women that they don’t feel like they can speak up for themselves.”
The lack of scrutiny, the backlash, the public shaming of the Mwa community, and the shaming of women who come forward with their own experiences of sexual assault, are creating an environment that is not welcoming to the women and girls who use this acronym to identify themselves.
“When you are a victim of rape, you’re going to be treated like a victim,” the first woman, who requested that her name not be used, said.
“You have to get it off your chest and it’s a little bit more than that, but it’s definitely a way to make sure you’re not the only one that’s being treated this way.”
The Mwa Community, which was founded in the 1980s and is based in Houston, Texas, is a loosely knit group of people who identify as female and have experienced sexual violence, but often identify as not being “good enough.”
Many members are self-identified as straight and have no romantic or sexual relationship with men.
The MWA is one of several organizations that exists in the Houston area that is dedicated to fighting sexual assault and violence against women.
The Houston chapter of the group, which has branches throughout the United States, holds monthly meetings to share resources and support.
“The Houston chapter is the biggest and the most active, but we don’t have any formal policies or guidelines on how to handle these situations,” said the first Mwa member, who asked that her last name not appear in this article.
“We have the right to be anonymous and we are not going to give anyone a reason for being ashamed of ourselves.”
The Houston branch of the organization, which is known as the MVA, has been criticized for not having a formal policy on reporting sexual assault or rape, nor does it have an “action plan” to handle sexual violence or violence against survivors.
The Houston MVA’s website says its mission is to empower women who have experienced abuse and to educate and empower them about the importance of reporting sexual abuse.
The MVA website lists a number of ways to do so, including calling the police or going to local organizations and “working with the victims.”
“There’s a number places you can reach out and support them,” the website states.
“It’s a way that people can find resources and reach out to each other, and hopefully it will change something.”
“The people that have been abused and victimized don’t need to be held accountable for it, but you have to learn how to deal with it,” the second Mwa woman said.
She also said that the lack of transparency around sexual violence and sexual assault has left her feeling isolated and alone in a community where she has to deal not only with the repercussions of the crime, but with how to cope with the shame and isolation that comes with it.
“If I’m being raped, that doesn’t make me a bad person, and I’m not being a bad woman.
But I don’t think I’m a good person because I haven’t reported it.
I don and I haven`t spoken up,” the third Mwa MVA member said.
It is a sentiment echoed by the third and fourth women, both of whom have worked to help others who have been victims of sexual violence.
“My goal is to have the women to understand that we can still be strong, and to not have to hide behind our shame,” the fourth woman said, referring to how the women have been “treated differently.”
The fourth woman also pointed to how, as a result of the reporting and awareness campaigns, the number of reported sexual assaults has fallen significantly.
“What we’re seeing right now is that people who are victims are coming forward and reporting to police.
And that has been really exciting for us,” the woman
