1. Does SVU actually enlighten the public on this issue?

Or exploit it?

I won't watch that show anymore. In the end, I think the lurid presentations of deviant sexual violence, sesason after season after season, is a disservice to the cause of ending sexual violence.

3. I think they enlighten more than exploit

Mariska is the reason why, too. Her character was raped and almost murdered on the show. It really has become a mission for her character to make sure that the victims have rights. And if you watch the show you'll see that she is always on the side of the victim. It is a wonderful show because of this

2. Real statistics and action as opposed to the misinformation coming from elsewhere



BTW to embed the video click "share" on the bar under the video and copy the short URL, pasting direct into the DU post

4. Thanks!

Most of the time I've been successful posting videos. It was important to post the link since I couldn't embed the video.
