Watch Strangers Step In When A Man Physically Assaults A Woman. Watch Them Laugh When It's Reversed.

Laura Willard

Violence is violence. Whether the victim is a man or a woman, we cannot tolerate domestic abuse. And it's certainly never funny. The bystanders' very different reactions to the two scenarios is a good reminder that we need change the way we view things.

Trigger warning: Although these are actors, physical and verbal abuse is portrayed in this video.

The statistics in this video are for the UK. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in the U.S. "have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner." Please don't take this as diminishing the significance of what women experience — just be aware that many men are victims as well, and they deserve the same concern.
