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

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.

When Jonathan Irons was 16, he was put on trial for burglary and assault with a weapon. According to CBS Sports, Irons was tried as adult, and an all-white jury found him guilty—despite there being no witnesses, no fingerprints, no footprints, and no DNA proving his guilt.

Irons began his 50-year sentence in a Missouri state prison in 1998. Now, 22 years later, he's a free man, largely thanks to the tireless efforts of a WNBA superstar.

Maya Moore is arguably the most decorated professional women's basketball player in the U.S. A first-round draft pick in 2011, she's played for the Minnesota Lynx, where she became a six-time WNBA All-Star, a five-time All-WNBA First Team player, a four-time WNBA champion, and the WNBA Most Valuable Player in 2014.

But before the 2019 season, in the peak of her career, Moore decided to take the year off for a different kind of court battle—one that had wrongfully convicted a young man and doomed him to spend most of his life behind bars. Her decision rocked her sport, and there was no guarantee that sacrificing an entire season to fight for criminal justice reform would bear any fruit.
