Without Victim Blaming

Mental or physical abuse is unacceptable under any circumstance.

Domestic violence has to be stopped. Male vs female abuse has to stop. Female vs male abuse has to stop.

I don’t want to debate which gender is the worst nor which gender suffers the most.

Provocateurs, of any gender, are a part of the problem. Perhaps as big a part of the problem as the abusers.

It is not okay to provoke someone or to give-up your personal responsibility to keep yourself safe and then cry victim when you get hurt.

It is not okay to provoke someone that you know has anger problems.

It is not okay to provoke someone that struggles to express their feelings .

It is not okay to provoke someone who is feeling overwhelmed or scared.

It is not okay to provoke someone who is feeling trapped and on the verge of “losing it”.

It is not okay to provoke someone and then mock them for a ‘weak’ response.

It is not okay to use put-down humour.

It is not okay to deliberately provoke someone by targeting a weakness, something that you know they struggle with, struggle to control.

It is not okay and it is not humane.

Stay safe!
