Survivors and Partners - Lesbian/bi abuse survivors
their partners:
Survivors and Partners is a discussion list for adult lesbian and bisexual
women who are survivors of childhood sexual and/or physical abuse (and the
mental/emotional abuse that goes with it), as well as their primary
partners (girlfriends, lovers, wives) and ex-partners. This list is owned
by a committed lesbian couple, one of whom is healing from the nightmare
of prolonged, sadistic sexual abuse by a parent.
The issue of abuse is a highly personal one, and we are committed to
making and keeping SP a completely safe, supportive, and confidential
environment. Thus, this is a restricted list, and list-owner approval of
all new subscriptions is required.
Before your subscription is approved,
it is mandatory that you send a brief letter of introduction to:
You don't have to use your real name, or any details that may reveal your
true identity, if you prefer anonymity.
But we do need to know why you
want to become a member of Survivors and Partners.
Biological males, heterosexual females, and transgendered males-to-females
are NOT permitted on the list, period.
There are numerous general
resources available for abuse survivors, but precious little for lesbian
and bisexual-female survivors -- and next to nothing for their partners.
SP is where survivors and partners can embark on this most painful,
If you've read this far, then you already know if you've found the right
