I have noticed nearly every popular movie or book in the past few years has something to do with abusing the woman. Why is that? I can’t make any sense out of how someone putting you down or beating you black and blue supposed to be sexy or proves that they love you?
Domestic violence is a serious issue and should be treated accordingly and not glamorized and glossed over as love. There’s nothing romance or sexy about this new game called “Slap Your Girl.” the craziness of it is….if she leaves it means she wasn’t meant for you but if she doesn’t it means she is the one. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.
When researching for my book I find a crime statistic that said 80% of the young women between 15-24 has experienced some form of intimate violence. The count is far too high if these young women believes that violence equals love and if their boyfriends think he is exhibiting love. Violence is about power, belittling and controlling. It has nothing to do with love.
If they believes that violence is a part of a relationship then society and their families has failed them miserably. If anyone hit you once, they will do it again and again and in some cases until you are dead. Don’t make excuses saying he didn’t mean it. Yes, he did. He goes out in public and behave civilized so why can’t he do it at home?
