The Blame Game: Black Women, Shame, and Victim Blaming

The Blame Game: Black Women, Shame, and Victim Blaming | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

The many stereotypes of black women are used to justify violence and aggression against them.  Because black women are mythologized as gold-digging, angry, physically strong, provocative shrews some black men assume (and this is something that having a mama, a auntie, a grandmother who raised you, or your own damn daughters doesn’t change) that if/when black women are hit, they asked for (or deserved) it.  At the end of the day many men empathize with other men and instead of vilifying any act of violence, physical or otherwise, against anyone, especially a woman, they attempt to justify it.  They put themselves in the shoes of the aggressor, but not the victim, and see themselves as blameless and reactionary, rather than violent and misogynistic.

Marching Mothers - Battered Mothers Custody Conference, Mothers Day 2014

Marching Mothers - Battered Mothers Custody Conference, Mothers Day 2014 | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
Mother’s Day is traditionally filled with flowers, cards, and sometimes breakfast in bed. Most fathers are honored to honor the mother of their mutual children by helping pick the daffodils and burn the toast, carefully covering the black part with a thick layer of marmalade. But mothers are also included in a stark statistic: one…

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Another way gender inequality plays in the horror. As @Claudine Dombrowski wrote, "Men who thought they owned women and children began using their superior economic power to hire attorneys and go to family (divorce) courts to get custody. The mothers, having no money for attorneys, were unable to compete on an uneven playing field.  Huge amounts of money began to change hands as a cottage industry of unregulated court-appointed professionals sprang up to provide opinions. Usually the opinions leaned toward the parent with the money."

Domestic Violence Permission Slips | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

We, as a society, give many permission slips to abusers, excusing their abuse, violence & control with claims of “understandable stressors.” Perhaps no category of these permission slips is larger, more pervasive, than the economical permission slips.

Teach Your Children Well: Men Must Be Leaders in Changing the Culture of Abuse - RH Reality Check

Teach Your Children Well: Men Must Be Leaders in Changing the Culture of Abuse - RH Reality Check | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

"A former professional football player argues that with enough men as leaders and partners, we can build a culture in which women and men are safe: safe going to parties, safe speaking up, and safe being whoever they want to be.

 

...Further, very often the role of girls and women is ornamental to, or in support of, the male experience. In many contexts, sports cheerleaders, swimsuit models, and the like reinforce the deeply-held assumption that women’s social, and often professional, roles are subservient to men. The disparity in wages, especially in an economy that many men view as a meritocracy, is a glaring example of cultural patriarchy in which the goals and aspirations of men are seen as more noble and superior to those of women.

Those of us concerned for these young people, both victim and perpetrators, have a moral obligation to recognize how the messages of our culture are manifest in the behavior of high school boys at a party."

For today, we don't even have the right to enjoy our homes, our private spaces, without fearing violence, rape, or worse. And when we dare to point that out, we are not merely dismissed, we are punished.

So many of us are still having to say, "That's life."

Rep. Gwen Moore Recounts Own Rape and Sexual Assault

Rep. Gwen Moore Recounts Own Rape and Sexual Assault | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

by JOHN PARKINSON,

ABC News Blogs

 

Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wisc., who joined Pelosi in introducing the [Violence Against Women] legislation, said, “Violence against women is as American as apple pie.”

 

“Domestic violence has been a thread throughout my personal life — up to and including being a child repeatedly sexually assaulted, up to and including being an adult who’s been raped.”

 

“This law has helped ensure that more victims report domestic violence to the police, that the rate of non-fatal intimate partner violence against women has been decreased by 53 percent, in that period of time,” she said. “Rape crisis centers have been able to keep their doors open [and] law enforcement and victims’ services providers are working together to better meet the needs of victims.”

 

“Unfortunately violence is not limited to just Democrats or just Republicans or just blacks or just whites,” Moore, the Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Women’s Caucus, said. “It’s not limited to heterosexual relationships, but there are relationships of all kinds that are exposed to domestic violence.”
