The AIDS Granny In Exile

The AIDS Granny In Exile | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

UN Expresses Concern on International Day to End Violence Against Women

UN Expresses Concern on International Day to End Violence Against Women | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Monday, November 25, is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.


...The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS – UNAIDS – says every hour 50 young women become newly infected with HIV. Many of those infections are related to violence.

“Lots of the gender-based violence [is] sexually related. There is a lot of data right now showing that most of the violence against women happens in the context of intimate partner violence – domestic violence. And many times it takes the face of non-consensual sex, which is a polite way to say rape,” said Dr. Mariangela Simao is UNAIDS Director of Rights, Gender, Prevention and Mobilization.

Simao said gender-based violence is strongly linked to HIV/AIDS.

Just as women’s youth and physical attractiveness figure heavily in men’s initial mate preference, they also determine the intensity of effort men devote to holding on to her.

of [relationship] ‘vigilance’ include calling at unexpected times to see who s/he was with, having their friends check up on him/her, dropping by unexpectedly to see what s/he is doing, not letting s/he out of their site at a party. Examples of [relationship] violence include: hitting the [person] who made a pass at [their partner], slapping the [person] who made a pass a their partner, threatening their partner, and getting his/her friends to beat up the person who was interested in their partner.


Other tactics of ‘mate guarding’ include the ‘concealment of a mate’ (e.g., not taking them out to the party where other males/females will be present), ‘monopolizing of a mate’s time’ (e.g., spending all their free time with their partner so that they cannot meet anyone else), verbal threats, (e.g., threatening to break up with him/her if they ever cheat…), derogation of competition, (e.g., pointing out to their partner the other man/woman’s flaws), resource display, (e.g., buying them an expensive gift), appearance enhancement, (e.g., making themselves ‘extra attractive’ for their partner), sexual inducement, (e.g., performing sexual favors to keep their partner around), physical signs of possession, (e.g., holding their partner’s hand when other men/women are around), and possessive ornamentation, (e.g., asking their partner to wear a ring signifying that s/he is taken).


Men and women differ in how frequently they perform these mate-guarding tactics. Men are more likely than women to attempt to conceal their mates, use possessive markings, (e.g., asking her to wear his jacket), display resources, threaten rivals, and use physical violence toward rivals as tactics of mate guarding. Women are more likely than men to enhance their physical appearance and flirt with other men as tactics of mate guarding.


Our study of 107 newlywed married couples explored predictors of the intensity of effort a person allocated to mate guarding. Men married to young and physically attractive women, those high in reproductive value, mate-guarded them most intensely. These men were more likely than other men to conceal their mates, display emotional outbursts at the slightest signals of infidelity, and threaten other men with violence. Examples of the specific actions these men performed include:


(1) Refusing to take her to the party where other men were present, (2) Insisting that she spend all her free time with him, (3) Yelling at her for talking to another man, (4) Telling her that he would die if she ever left him, (5) Derogating the other man’s intelligence, (6) Staring coldly at the other guy who was looking at her.


Just as women’s youth and physical attractiveness figure heavily in men’s initial mate preference, they also determine the intensity of effort men devote to holding on to her.

Masculinity, Bullying and the Locker Room

Masculinity, Bullying and the Locker Room | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The Dolphins have indefinitely suspended Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team because his actions [against Martin], if true, are morally abominable and potential violations of workplace laws. Still, there are NFL personnel people and active and former players who believe Martin handled the situation poorly by allowing it to spill out of the locker room and into the public.

That's not to say they're defending Incognito. They're not in any way, shape or form. But they do believe there is an unwritten rule that player business should be handled in the locker room by the players themselves, particularly when the actions are as vile as those attributed to Incognito. "I think Jonathan Martin is a weak person," said one personnel man, speaking on the condition of anonymity. [do I even need to point out the hypocrisy of calling someone weak in character and NOT putting their name on the record?!?]

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 5, 2013 4:35 PM

This ESPN article and SI article have me thinking about the culture of the locker room and the spaces of machismo that are cultivated there away from the view of the rest of society.  This is a rather important topic to me personally because I was victimized and systematically bullied in the locker room as a kid; I see a connection between what happens at the highest level of sports infusing the images that high school and little league kids aspire to have in their lives.  I was driving home listening to this particular Colin Cowherd radio show and was surprised how much I agreed with what he said.  Much of the backlash on this story has centered on the supposed “wussification of society.”  Sports are that great bastion of hyper-masculinity that rewards behavior that in other social circles would never be culturally unacceptable away from the field of play or the locker room.  Most locker rooms are fine, but expecting them to be self-policying is the type of scenario that bullies actively seek.  I think that those that defend the system’s code of silence fail to realize how they are a part of the system that empowers the bullies to victimize and take advantage of those that prefer more thoughtful, civilized interactions as ways to resolve disputes.  Any comment I’ve heard that has criticized Martin usually ends up tells me more about that commenter than it does to explain the situation.

megan b clement's comment, December 16, 2013 12:00 AM
In Miami players Incognito and Martin had some locker room differences with one another. Incognito was accused of bullying Martin. Although completely in the wrong the NFL and many other poeple believe that Martin should have confronted him in the locker room or went to the coach. Instead he leaked it to the press and it became a public issue.

I chose this article because it shows how in some places in the world, women are denied what they want to do with their bodies. This connects to the article because women never had a say in what they wanted to do in the family.
