The Boys Town National Hotline is a free hotline available to kids, teens and young adults at any time.
We are here to talk if you're depressed, contemplating suicide, being physically or sexually abused, on the run, addicted, threatened by gang violence, fighting with a friend or parent, or if you are faced with an overwhelming challenge.
It is not a complete list, but it may help you to know that other people are having similar experiences: Perpetrators can be any gender identity, sexual orientation, or age, and they can have any relationship to the victim.
Like all perpetrators, they might use physical force or psychological and emotional coercion tactics.
These voice systems might eventually go from something you talk to on a device to something that’s in your head.
Sexual assault can happen to anyone, no matter your age, your sexual orientation, or your gender identity.
Men and boys who have been sexually assaulted or abused may have many of the same feelings and reactions as other survivors of sexual assault, but they may also face some additional challenges because of social attitudes and stereotypes about men and masculinity.
Today, with the help of Amazon’s Echo, Google calendar integration, Slack, Siri and the like – this is all possible. For example: if a bank decides to enable balance notifications for their users, a chat bot can be set up so that when a customer asks “balance,” they get an answer with the exact amount of money currently available in their account.
New fintech companies are emerging virtually overnight (some operating 90% or more on chat bot technologies only) and releasing financial products that are easier to use, more customer friendly and more convenient overall than legacy banking products.As I get out of bed I ask Alexa what time it is, what’s on the news and what the weather will be like. I have speakers installed in the shower and they start airing Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now” morning show.
