I’ve been thinking for a little while now that it’s upsetting that the only way men tend to see women as human beings is when they remember that girls and women that they love could easily be met by the same violence they abhor.
Hi. Newsflash: You really think that men are the only ones that do this? To women no else? Expand your worldview.
What do you think of the Iraqi or Afghanistan people right now? They are no more than just an abstraction. Maybe Osama springs to mind as a name. Nothing else.
Humans exist on a basis of preconceptions and stereotypes. By applying things we know to things we don’t understand, our world makes sense.
So yes most people hear about Ray Rice punching his wife and go “Damn, that’s a shame” and move on about their day.Unless you imagine yourself or your loved ones in that situation it’s all an abstraction.
Can a social issue occur without blame being thrown around for no fucking reason!?
Sure, it’s comedic and we all laugh and go ‘hahah yeah so true” The fuck would you say if asked by a national news network to comment on anything really?
