Today I had my big speech for my communications class. I did it on the myth that women are greater victims of violence. I started with general violence stats showing men are greater victims of murder and violent crime and equally victims of DV, talked about two hidden (from stats) forms of violence against men which are prison rape and false allegations, and then ways that society desensitiezes to violence against men through humor.
I saw a lot of nodding heads (not nodding off, but in agreement) and when I turned to walk away when I was done the class (mostly male) broke out in very loud applause. I think it made an impact.
The class was especially suprised by the David and Goliath t-shirts Boys are stupid line, which I showed 4 shirts. You could see their reactions visably.
Maybe some of them may end up here some day. I did mention men's rights and men's rights activism, perhaps one or more of them may google it. I can only hope.
Beyond that ...
I AM DONE WITH MY SPEECH!!!!!!
