Sarika shared this image [from here] of a child with bandaged head and arm, a bruised eye and some red colour to indicate blood near his mouth and on the bandage. He is holding a placard that says, “I argued with my wife”
The image, also being shared on facebook, is titled – ‘fancy Dress Competition WINNER’
Would it be funny if it was a girl saying she argued with her husband? Why not?
Because we believe that this could actually happen to a woman? And because despite social tolerance to domestic violence we do not think Domestic Violence against women is a joke.
So do we think domestic violence agianst men is a joke?
No. So, maybe we think it is too funny to even imagine the same thing ever happening to a man? And if it does happen – then the man had better not talk about it or risk being seen as a joke or as unmanly.
