Johann Hari: Why do we ignore the abuse of women?

Post  Sarah996 on Wed Dec 08, 2010 1:12 pm

"When is it okay to beat, rape and stab a woman? When it is okay to call these victims "whiny", "money-grabbing" and "bitches"? The obvious answer is never. But that doesn't seem to be the judgement we make, together, as a culture. No. If the wife-beater/rapist/attempted murderer can write novels, kick a ball, create songs or pose as a liberal politician, we treat their misogyny as an irrelevance or, worse, as a laddish affectation imbuing them with the testosteroney tang of authenticity."

This is the first paragraph of an article I found very interesting yet so very sad and alarming.
