There is so much wrong with this article.
And I’m not talking about what actually happened, horrific enough as that is.
· Women as possessions
· Violence and power wielded over someone far smaller.
· Her terror and fear
· The knife at her throat having been hung upside down.
No, I’m talking about the reportage of this event.
Catch the first wrong:
The caption under the first photo:
Yeah, this usually happens when you have a quarrel with your partner/husband/loved one.
He hangs you upside from a balcony on the third floor. All the time. What a joker he is.
Then the next wrong and I quote:
“more tantalisingly, what they could have been arguing about that drove him to such extremes.”
Well damnit, it was all her fault. She drove him to it. She should be careful what she says. She pushes him just too far.
Note: not one word about battering or abuse.
