Patrick Stewart addressing Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence and marital rape should not continue to be treated as minor crimes. These forms of violence are treated as more of a joke than as a serious assault. Domestic violence and marital rape are NOT lesser crimes than assaults and rape by strangers. These assaults by “loved ones” are even more psychologically scarring than the same event by a stranger due to the implied trust and emotions attached to a significant other. Our laws must change to address these issues more effectively and place responsibility on the perpetrators rather than the victims.
