One more thing women have to look over their shoulders for involving rape culture; illegal assault injections.
Wait what, assault injections!?!
TikToker @isabelladortax after watching a video from a British news channel explaining how people, more specifically women, are being injected illegally and without consent spiked with drugs. A mark that looks like a bruise with a pinpoint right in the center of it, and she believes after seeing she has this same exact mark is led to believe this has also happened to her.
She said in the video, “I was on a night out and I came home and I had the same bruise like that. I couldn’t remember anything, and I just thought I had fallen over and bruised myself,” now after seeing this video she and many other women are worried for their safety in England. Worried for her safety she went to the doctors to check on her health and get tested for anything.

The video from the British news Channel explaining this injection features a girl who is almost 100% that she was drugged on her night out. Where she described “not feeling stable, my words were slurring about, and my eyes were heavy as well,” giving her the indication and the people around her something were not right.
How much is this happening?
In accordance with BBC, medical professions are saying that it is possible to be injected without you even noticing, “Some needles are so thin you can “barely feel [them] going in”, says Dr. Shirin Lakhani, a cosmetic doctor specializing in women’s health,”[And] if someone’s had a drink or so, they might be less inclined to feel the scratch of a needle.” Happening almost everywhere the most common places being bars, but more and more bars are adopting ways to help those in need who feel threatened and compromised to get out of a violent situation. The rise of spike assault injections needs to be raised more aware to help women protect themselves and others from ever experiencing this.
