There’s a person attached to every body, respect both.
March 13, 2017
Healthy relationships are all about respecting each other. You should feel loved, safe and free to be yourself.
Relationships can be confusing and it can be difficult to understand what is and isn’t normal behaviour.
But disrespectful and unacceptable behaviour can come in many forms. It isn’t limited to just physical behaviour; it can also go way beyond that.
For example, it’s not OK for someone to try and pressure you into sending a nude pic, or to expect the same things to happen that they’ve seen in a porn film.
If someone makes you do something you don’t want to, makes you feel scared, intimidated or tries controlling you, it’s not acceptable and is never OK.
The Disrespect NoBody campaign helps young people to:
• understand what a healthy relationship is
• re-think their views of controlling behaviour, violence, abuse, sexual abuse and what consent means within their relationships.
It aims to prevent the onset of domestic violence in adults by challenging attitudes and behaviours amongst young people that abuse in relationships is acceptable.
The campaign is targeted at 12 to 18 year old boys and girls and aims to prevent them from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.
