  Charley Dunn  November 13, 2017 Government Professor Carlson The Red Pill With the Feminist movement making bigger leaps through social media, we tend to only here about one side. This could also play a part in the media being on the more liberal side. But we as a society fall into the trap of believing what we no matter the source. We then spread this  by saying, “Oh did you read about such and such on twitter?”, or whatever the source may be which may be misconstrued in some case. Our government tends to treat men as they are disposable and they can be replace because they are the “producers” for the family.  For me being a so called “middleman” type of person between men and women’s rights . This is a movie that talks about how men have to treat domestic violence, and how . Domestic violence has been a controversial issue that comes up quite often in the media and almost always has to do with a man hitting a woman, but we have yet to see publicized stories of the opposite happening. Why does this happen you wonder? This happens because men are more than likely presumed to be the aggressor because of the past. Men have gotten to the  point that they cannot react back if their wife starts trying to display violence towards him. A quote that really sticks out in this movie is when a man, who was violently abused by his wife, called the police. The officer that came to check out the incident said, “If   she starts hitting you again you better get out of there fast because if just breaks one fingernail trying to hit you we’ll  arrest you.”  We tend to have this blind spot that women can do bad things and that men are vulnerable. There are many shelters to go to that are for domestic violence through out the country,  but there is something that is very unusual about these shelters. They are all served to female victims and nearly all of them turn away male victims. There is only one domestic violence shelter, located in Arkansas that is an all-male shelter. A study from The National Coalition of Domestic Violence shows that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men are victims of domestic violence by an itimate partner in their lifetime. If this is the case then why are men being denied help from state funded shelters? Could this be considered gender discrimination? If there are over 2,000 shelters and only one serves men, then obviously the resources don’t match the need.  Erin Pizzey, who founded the first ever women’s sh elter in 1971, says that domestic violence is consensual and that both are in the wrong, but occasionally the victim is innocent. She has since been barred from all conferences because of the fact that she believes women can  be equally as violent as men. Pizzey states that 62 of the first 100 women to come through her shelter were equally as violent as the men they left. In 1968 the argument was about capitalism. This soon changed to patriarchy when the feminists movement arrived, which was then warped  by t he feminist into men strictly being the issue. Then shelters stated that men can’t work with them and that boys over the age of 12 cannot come into the shelters. Katherine Spillar, executive editor of  Ms.Magazine , on the other hand has very different opinions. She thinks that domestic violence is another word for wife beating, or dating violence. This isn’t girls beating up on boys this is boys beating up girls, by using violence to intimidate and control the other. She believes that there are not enou gh women’s shelters when men are victims of 43% of domestic violence according to The National Coalition of Domestic Violence.  I find this quite hard to believe because in 2016 the CDC released a report that showed 4.7 million cases of intimate domestic violence were women while 5.4 million were men. If this is the case then why does the media shape this as a women’s issue? This would no longer be a gender problem if both men and women were equally victims of domestic violence. But is that why the number of male victims is never addressed? Today even though it seems we have taking several leaps and bounds towards women’s rights the media still only publicizes women’s issued because men are desposable and can be replaced while women have to raise the child. This is where the real issue lies. Even though this is one of the many topics touched on in this movie, I feel as though I have learned a lot about where our state funding goes and how its being distributed. We need to not just have equal rights for women but for all.
