Why is it ok to hit a man but not a woman? It’s vile and disgusting to hit ANYONE! Especially someone who you are supposed to love! The revelation of Kelly Brooks hitting two ex boyfriends whilst in a relationship with them has brought this into the media AGAIN! Why do women think that in order to be equal, we must also take on the disgusting behaviours of men? Historically it was always men who hit women and it was unspoken about within society. Nowadays however society is becoming more open about relationships and what happens behind closed doors, which is amazing for those caught in domestic abuse relationships, applications for phones are being created to make people more safe and more able to leave relationships that aren’t healthy.
That being said, this issue has been brought to my attention due to reading an article called ‘7 female celebrities who have physically abused their men’ this sadly is nothing compared to the headlines that males get for abusing their spouses. When googling victims of domestic abuse they are almost all women… So why is this?
In my opinion, people who write about domestic abuse are most likely to be women because men writing about it looks misogynistic, however a woman will not write about a woman being abusive in a bad light. The one thing that caught my eye was that Kelly Brooks, the model who brought females being domestic abusers into the news, laughed in an interview about her abusing her ex boyfriends. This shocked me because mental abuse always comes alongside physical abuse… So Kelly why is this a laughing matter and a way to sell your upcoming book? Why are you selling someones pain? Why is society allowing this?
Society is allowing it cause she is a woman who is good looking and takes her clothes off as a job so she couldn’t possibly do something wrong to someone. I am thoroughly disgusted at the society we live in…
