Been seeing this promo for a Channel V programme — Truth, Love, Cash.
The scene is of a verbal confrontation between boy and girl, and then the boy getting physically aggressive with her.
It was disturbing, to put it very mildly.
I haven’t seen the actual programme, but the promo was disgusting enough.
Why is physical aggression promenading as attitude, showing on a channel for ‘youth’. Didn’t the producers or editors see anything odd about it?
Isn’t this how domestic violence gets started?
And I wonder what the parents of that boy and girl thought, watching that scene?
There is so much more I’d like to say about domestic violence. But why repeat when I can link! Check out this post and the comments on DV; and also The Last Fall, that a Qatari columnist wrote for one of my magazines.
