Thought Catalog – my thoughts on whiteribbon.org and domestic violence

28 Oct

dv7

What is different about whiteribbon.org is that the scholarly work under way attempts to understand domestic violence as something both men and women suffer from, and something that both men and women participate in. Domestic violence is understood as a tragedy, particularly when there are children involved, witnessing and often suffering from violence themselves, because this is likely the key way a new generation of abusers is born. If we sincerely want to address the problem of domestic violence, we need to understand it as first and foremost a human tragedy.

Only addressing half the problem will solve nothing.

7 Ways Being a Gamer Makes My Children Better People via @ThoughtCatalog

New piece at Thought Catalog about how gaming is good for kids and good for us all.

 

They get knocked down. A lot. And they get up again and play another day and every day they get a little better. It’s interesting to watch them act protectively to obviously new players who need a little time to bring their skills up to the level the game demands. Losing teaches compassion.

Twitter user @borderlinefemme claims credit for two months of reporting me as abusive. Facts are abuse in feminist world.

Interesting that the tweet claims my account was engaging in abusive behavior – posting facts and evidence to counter common feminist lies is now abuse according to Twitter?

I have emailed Twitter to request a review, but that might take a few days.

We shall see what comes of this.

In the meantime, I am collecting some of my favorite blog posts into an ebook. No rest for the wicked…..

Lots of love,

JB
