Watch the First Anti-Domestic Violence Super Bowl Commercial

An anti-domestic violence PSA will air during the Super Bowl this Sunday, courtesy of the No More campaign and the National Football League, which donated its internal ad agency to create the spot and, according to the Wall Street Journal, half a minute of air time on NBC, "where ad time costs roughly $4.5 million for 30 seconds." No More is billing it as the first of its kind.

3. What about The Culpability of the Female Stereotype in Domestic Violence?

 

Would that subject be shown during the remaining 30s of that very same ad? It will only be fair to all the Male Victims who also suffer alone in silence, in the dark.

But I doubt it!

Yet, more and more, Women are taken advantage of the Presumed Innocence Clause. It is based solely on the Weak Gender Status, which our Justice System has been too willing to support in spite of mounting EVIDENCES to the contrary. Instead, our Justice System imposes Harsh Sentencing to only the Males counterpart in Domestic Violence.

If Women truly wish to address the issue of Domestic Violence, they must first admit their own Culpability in creating the problem.




Then, there is this article: "Unprecedented Domestic Violence Study Affirms Need to Recognize Male Victims".

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/5/prweb10741752.htm (Also, a must read)

Then, there is this article: "Men: The Overlooked Victims of Domestic Violence".



(Copy and paste from the original article) "...Despite many findings that show almost equal amounts of abuse perpetrated against Domestic Violence Statistics - Men Keeping Quiet men and women, the media and government focus the most attention on the female victims of domestic violence"...".

5. Not bad at all! But you forgot the part about "Not" getting the right kind of pizza, ever!

 

However, if one day, by some divine intervention you get the pizza you want, you just know that you can never forget that DAY.

Thanks for participating!

For me, the whole issue is very personal! I have been a victim of Domestic Violence not once, but twice!

On one occasion, I almost got a cigaret burn on my face, because my Common Law Partner had a bad day.

The other time, I almost got stabbed with a knife by that same Common Law Partner, because I refused to let her cook food wrapped in aluminum foil, in a Microwave.

I strongly suspect PMS was involved on both occasions; But saying something like this in public, these days, only means that I am A WEAK MAN.

So go figure "why" so many men would rather keep the issue hidden from everybody; I have been doing the same thing for more than 11 yrs now.

Again, thanks for stopping by!
