  •  Seeing domestic violence as a men's issue. (11+ / 0-)

    I'm so tired and angry about how traditional media (and popular culture) treats domestic violence like it's a "women's issue." It's a men's issue too, because men are the perpetrators to an incredible degree. Men need to step up and say no more. If the Chiefs really want to honor Ms. Perkins, they'll have all of their players engage in a campaign against domestic violence, focusing not just on victims, but prevention. We have to get men to stop doing this, and the Chiefs players could take advantage of the visibility their celebrity status provides to make notable strides in that direction.
