My Oath

Once again, the focus is on men prepetrating violence against women

I just happened to be glancing through a newspaper yesterday. Don't usually have very much time for that, so am not really up on the world topics.

But I saw an advertisement which offended me and my sensibilities. There was a pair of Australian comedians promoting a website, and as usual the focus is on men perpetrating violence against women.

The site www.myoath.com.au has a lot of high profile Australian MALES out there stating that they are swearing against, therefore the use of myoath, violence towards women.

So where I ask, is the sister site, where woman can swear to not commit or allow violence towards men. And where is the child friendly site that says it is not okay for ANY parent to commit violence against children. There is a child site that advocates no violence towards children, but then a fair proportion of it states that it is men who commit the violence.

I am sick to the back teeth of men being portrayed as the only ones capable of committing any form of violence.

I was the victim of domestic abuse, of physical and mental assaults on my person as a child, and this continued into adulthood. The perpetrator was NOT my reformed alcoholic father, instead it was MY OWN MOTHER. I am now 49 years old, and it has taken me until I was 47 to put some distance between us. I still have a lot to work through, both anger and grief.

But the violence was committed by a FEMALE.

There, I have said it. Females are just as capable of domestic abuse as men are. Finally in this era of equality, why can't this very fact just be recognised for what it is. The truth.
