    Default Hidden Camera Social Experiment - Violence is violence.

    *******Trigger Warning*******


    "Hundreds of thousands of men suffer from domestic abuse each year. This video might change the way you see domestic violence."

    http://youtu.be/Jy5vRGtKPY0

    I found this social experiment disturbing. It's not surprising though. I showed DH and he said because it's a woman you don't think you need to step in and say something.

    Why? Why is it so hard to comprehend that a woman can be an abuser too?

    The statistics at the end of the video are from the UK. 40% of DV is suffered my men.

    The website I watched the video on said in Australia, one in every three domestic violence cases is against men.

    If you or anyone else needs support with DV please call 1800 737 732 or visit https://www.1800respect.org.au

    Sad that everyone was laughing when it was the woman hitting the man. I didn't think it was funny.

    Violence is violence isn't it, so sad to watch both scenarios, but even sadder that the second scenario was apparently funny.
