That was a comment made on ESPN concerning the charges Greg Oden faces for punching an ex girlfriend. A lot more jokes are contained that are equally repugnant. What the hell is wrong with people when it comes to violence towards women?

On Air Jocks call Erin Andrews a Gutless Bitch and it is all in good fun and belly laughs.... Not in a million years Assholes!!

Ray Rice gets cheers as he runs onto to the football field and only a two game suspension. What a wonderful message that sends to men who knock women out. I guess make sure you are an athlete and it is OK if you just apologize and say you will learn from this.

All of these examples in less than 2 months time. Truly a sad statement of where we are at as a society. I can only shake my head as I honestly do not have any answers as to what to do. Even in the past week I had coworker come to me and tell me they were being harassed at work and management said to just work it out with this person. I told this person a lawyer and HR should be the next destinations.

If there is more I can do please let me know. I want to make this world a safer place for my own 16 year old daughter. I am not sure that will happen but it is worth the fight.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
