As I listened to yesterday's topic of Terrorism my thoughts wondered to the Domestic Terrorism I experienced 28 years ago. Yes, perhaps the dictionary's description of this word has examples such as " the Oklahoma bombing" but in my mind today's topic (1/6) should be included.
terrorist:a person who tries to frighten people or governments into doing what he/she wants by using or threatening violence.
I am often offended when I hear someone make statements about other cultures (Muslim, Arabic) and how they "treat their Women". As I look at America and the treatment of our own Women and Children knowing everyday, nearly every hour domestic violence occurs. Add on stranger abduction, rape, murder and the human trafficking occurrence. Yet do we as a Nation take on this subject with the same vigilance as the 911 terrorist attack. Why? Because then the "average white guy" would be suspect.
The caller who described women as being verbally "men are pigs" and physically abusive without prosecution interested me. I agree it's highly plausible these occurrences likely go unreported...the word nagging is made lite of, while it can be just as emotionally damaging to the person it is directed at or a child who becomes witness to the emotional tearing down of a man, aka emasculation. I am concerned with the freely used words "bit#ch, horro$, sl%t ect. Populorizes during the 90's in the music industry and now accepted anytime of day or night on tv. The word shit is bleeped but not derogitory language of our Women. The progressive, intellegent Dr. Phil and Women of "the View" throw it around on their shows as if by saying this it makes them trendy..and cool.
Terror, ingnorance and indifference starts at Home!
Look within AMERICA..look within!
