Question with 3 notes
verisimilitude-and-veracity asked: People who think that image was trivializing domestic abuse have it backwards- the image is supposed to point out that religion is a legitimate form of domestic abuse. It's supposed to make people realize that religion is bad for your health, not to make them think that domestic abuse is any less serious than it is. In short, I think it just went over a lot of peoples' heads.
I agree and I think that a lot of people who think it detracts from the issue of domestic abuse may not realize that it could also be used as a way of raising awareness about domestic abuse. People who look at that image can see the real impact of religious abuse and if they are able to draw the parallel to domestic abuse it can again raise their consciousness on that issue as well. We shouldn’t attempt to play which abuse is worse than the other, so I will not in any way downplay the real issue of domestic abuse, I just wish people would return the favor in not downplaying the real issue of religious abuse.
