I’m an intern in the UC Berkeley Gender Equity resource center, and I’m helping organize a workshop centered upon the analysis of media portrayals of domestic violence, entitled “Comedy or Crisis: What is so funny about domestic violence?” Our plan is to show clips of domestic violence and have attendees rate and discuss the seriousness of the proceedings in each clip.
Any suggestions are requested and welcomed! I’m also desperately searching for any short clips (preferably humorous, and through youtube, sidereel, etc, although these qualifications aren’t necessary) that depict domestic violence in lgbt relationships or with men as victims (both hetero and homosexual). If anyone has any thoughts or interesting information about these specific types of domestic violence that would also be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hello everyone. I feel like i'm constantly being taken advantange of. By guys. This has been going on for years straight. Maybe, just maybe, one male has ever made me the least bit happy and given me a glimpse of hope in the mail species.
Anyways, I'm always in a bad situation with a guy. Something happened last night and I just don't know how things spiral out of control with me and some people.
Let me start by saying males have put me in bad sitiuations, and i'm really scared to say what it is, but i'm sure anyone with half a brain can imagine.
Every since that night I was in that situation I couldn't get out of, I felt like such a loser, like i had to do everything a guy told me to do.
It's pathetic. Last night, I was tricked into believing this SOB liked me, which I thought he did, we had been talking for ever. We had a one night stand and my stupid ass waited by the phone hoping he would call...never did.
He walked me to my door after his friend took me home and said "thanks." and kissed me. I said, "for what?" He replied "for hanging out." and that was that.
He also brought a friend along and I wonder why his friend came to pick me up. Was his friend expecting something? Ugh, I'm so confused. I'm legally an adult but wtf is going on?
Before I knew this guy, he was sending me text messages about sex. I'm wonderin if he heard things from my ex? Help me with the following:
1) Why did he bring his friend?
2) Was he lying out his ass?
3) Is he done?
I really like him and I wanna be in a serious relationship, but I keep finding myself getting into more and more situations like this.
Please help, it's stims from when I was younger.
I need answers please NO sugarcoating.
I stopped believing a long time ago.
I don't know what to do to believe that people actually care about me..
First off I've been involved with my current boyfriend going on 6 months. Were both in love with each other and do anything possible for one another. I found out like 2 months in he may have a baby on the way but the mom was denying it was his. The baby was born in late December and the mom never called him until February, He found out she was born through her myspace. So in feb. she started calling him and this was almost an every day occasion, I got mad about this at the time. They'd sit and talk on the phone for like 30 mins to an hour at a time while i was right there. Who wouldn't be pissed right? She stopped calling as much and when she did he wouldn't talk as long because I brought it up. So now here we are the middle of april and the baby is going on 4 months. Every other week he goes and STAYS at his ex's house to visit his daughter, anywhere from 1-4 days at a time. Mind you the first time he went he never called me so I was ready to break up with him that quick over it before even hearing his explanation. And I've had a hard time ever since so when he goes I feel like I'm left basically heart broken. Now we've talked and argued about it the past few times and he calls me every time he's there now. His argument is the mom is with the baby 24-7 so when he goes there he's basically giving her a break. Which custody hasn't been disgust yet so normally parents who have partial custody this is how it works every other weekend. My thing is he goes there to stay because she won't let him take her until she's 5 or 6 months. In the back of my mind he could be cheating on me this is his ex and is it necessary for him to stay days at a time? And the present time he doesn't have a job so there's no restrictions on how long he can stay. Should I be wrong for feeling this way towards him? Or should I just let him be that dad he's being? I'm so confused and hurt by all of this.
