I was talking with a friend the other day, and she told me: “you know, he didn’t want to hurt her. It was just a slap”.
I CAN’T HEAR something like this and stay silent. When it has to do with violence, there is no such thing as “just a”.
No “just a threat”. No “just a punch”. No “just a bad word”.
If we allow this into our life, we allow violence in it too. By allowing violence, we become part of the issue; we become abusers, without even noticing it.
I am astonished to hear a woman say “it’s just a slap”, like “that’s ok, it’s nothing bad after all.”
How can we even tolerate it?
How is this possible?
How is it even possible that today a man could say “they call this rape, come on, look at her, she was just asking for it”?
I wanted to throw up my lunch. I had him in front of me and he made me sick.
We are living in a crazy society. We are moving backwards, while wonderful women are raising their voices to say “NO MORE”. Check this out – 8 Ways to Kick Domestic Violence Ass
NO MORE of this.
VIOLENCE IS NOT NORMAL.
It’s time for us to say STOP to it. Today. Right now. Right in front of these people who seem to see violence as natural, normal.
It never was.
It never will be.
And it should stop.
Death is just a breath away from us, if we do nothing, if we keep accepting intolerable things.
