Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

PLEASE stop look­ing at gen­ders and fight for equal­ity for all, es­pe­cially in re­gards to do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

Women com­mit a large chunk of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence against men and against chil­dren. That is not spo­ken about enough.

If end­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence against men can­not be talked about and fought for just as much as end­ing do­mes­tic against women can be (which it is now), then sim­ply fight to end all do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and re­mem­ber we are equals.

Vi­o­lence against women is as bad as vi­o­lence against men and vice versa; one is nei­ther worse nor more im­por­tant than the other is.

Do not for­get in your bias to­wards sup­port­ing girls and women that boys and men need to be given the same sup­port and op­por­tu­ni­ties, care and fa­cil­i­ties as fe­males.

Fail­ing that, your equal­ity turns into gen­der favouritism. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
