A woman’s vulnerability is the reason why we have been described as the weaker sex for generations. Our vulnerability which seems to be the reason why women are abused in the society also happens to be our greatest strength. It is the superpower that makes grown men cry like babies and countries go to war.
Using this vulnerability to ruin another person’s life is a crime against humanity. The world already sees women as victims, why assume the identity of a victim just to advance your career.
Amber Heard played the victim card in her Washington Post op-ed, she used her vulnerability to engender sympathy and contempt against a man whose career was tumbling down because of false accusations.
Nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime.
Domestic Violence is real and world over, every minute one woman falls victim. Domestic Violence affects both gender however women are more susceptible compared to men.
In most cases, victims are afraid to speak up because of the fear of repressions from society.
In certain parts of Africa, domestic violence are still seen as a private matter, even the police will not get involved. There are still generations of men that see domestic violence as the only way to “discipline” their wives.
There are real victims of domestic violence who are afraid to speak up because of fear and will become even more afraid after witnessing this Johnny Depp/Amber Heard debacle.
The world is slow to listen and quick to judge, more women will step back because one woman has used the most unfortunate reality of our existense falsely.
