Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Domestic Violence…A few thoughts
With the recent high profile cases of domestic violence (Ray Rice, Greg Hardy, et al) in the NFL taking center stage over actual football games, we are given a moment to pause and think about this serious societal issue that isn’t new or the latest scourge in the NFL, but a reflection of what is going on everyday within some families and households across the nation.
Domestic violence in society has two faces but the primary face is that of a man abusing physically and/or emotionally a woman be it a girlfriend, fiancee, wife, child/children. The secondary face which is often less talked about or recognized is when a female is abusing a male.
Most often this goes unreported or unspoken about for a variety of reasons. Men who get abused are viewed as weak, not masculine enough or straight up punks. If you doubt this there is a short video clip everyone should see.
How society views domestic violence when it comes to man vs a woman and when it comes to a woman vs a man. http://www.trueactivist.com The video entitled “This Disgusts Me!!! Would You Stop to Help This Woman?” can also be seen on Youtube. Double standards out in the open. Domestic violence regardless of who is initiating it should not be condoned or tolerated.
