Trump Wants Abuse Program Fund Cut- Valentine’s March Planned

Donald Trump’s latest stunt is planning on cutting funding for domestic violence victims.

Low blow, Mr. President.

This article lists a few programs that will lose out if he gets his way.

Domestic violence programs are already very underfunded, and often shelters do not have enough beds to house survivors who flee.

Some feminists and internet users are planning a widespread protest calling on Donald Trump to buck up and support women for a change, and to spread awareness about woman abuse, how to spot it, and where to get help.

The weekend before Valentine’s Day is a great date because women who attend and get educated about warning signs, hotlines, and shelter facilities can bring what they know to a Valentine’s Day date they go on.

Help us spread the word about the march, especially if you can’t attend!
Also, please check out these eye opening quotes on abuse.

Arrest Sean Connery

 

 

I have just come across this video in which Sean Connery admits that he believes women should be slapped in some cases, and that they use stereotypical behaviors he believes women perform in order to justify the abuse.  I suggest a human rights organization take a look at the issue. 

 

 

 

 

Since Connery is exhibiting behaviors and statements that mark him as a likely abuser and this warrants further attention.  Also, his lashing out against a protected group is in itself a crime in many countries and should therefore be dealt with. 

 

 

 

Sorry, no excuses for calling for violence on women.  Until we live in a post-patriarchal world, we will NEVER be able to determine if a particular slap was “deserved” or not or if it was laid on the woman because she is a woman.  It’s just too hard at this time to tell, so we must assume all violence against women is done because of bias.
