A sexual predator has no business running for president
Under intense questioning from CNN’s Anderson Cooper in the second presidential debate on October 9, Donald Trump categorically denied ever sexually assaulting women. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many of his accusers.
Since then, 12 women — all white females — have come forward accusing Trump of forcibly kissing them, fondling their breasts, grabbing their genitals, and forcing himself on them.
The accusations date back from the late 1970’s to 2007.
The accusers include a passenger on a plane, a contestant on The Apprentice, and contestants in the “Miss USA” and “Miss Teen USA” pageant.
A media group in Italy recruited a few young boys for a video project, but the real purpose of the video was not explained to them beforehand.
Watch as they take direction up to a point. When the director asks them to slap a girl, all bets are off.
The result is a thought-provoking PSA about domestic violence.
GOOD TIME TO START
Domestic violence (also domestic abuse, spousal abuse, intimate partner violence, battering or family violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person in a domestic context against another, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Intimate partner violence is violence by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner.
Domestic violence can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death.
Domestic violence often occurs because the abuser believes that abuse is justified and acceptable, and may produce inter-generational cycles of abuse that condone violence. Victims of domestic violence may be trapped in domestic violent situations through isolation, power and control, insufficient financial resources, fear, shame or to protect children. As a result of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability to create healthy relationships. Victims may experience post-traumatic stress disorder.
Children who live in a household with violence show dysregulated aggression from an early age that may later contribute to continuing the legacy of abuse when they reach adulthood.
