Keira Knightly’s PSA

The conundrum over the Rihanna/ Chris Brown issue have been smeared all over the tabloids and entertainment headlines. And via the ordeal these two have gone through (RhiRhi: the physical abuse and the shame. Chris Brown: Public hate) a lot of people have given domestic violence the attention it needed. But you know that the whole issue have become an entity of its own when an A-list celebrity manage to star on a PSA, addressing the problem.
I have a thing or two to say about domestic violence, but one thing’s for sure, if he hurt you once — He. Will. Hurt. You. Again. This might have already been said by someone famous, but nonetheless, it is the perennial fact of domestic violence. Women almost always continue to stay with their abuser and until they are beaten to a pulp or the guy ends up in jail (which ever comes first), that is the only time the vicious cycle stops.The sad part is, there are several instances that the abuse escaltes to fatality. After reading statistics relating to abused women, I’ve realized how prevalent this has been even after  the amendment of Human Rights and Reformations for Women; something that is inherent long before the law was passed.

I see that we still have a long way to go. Until we start addressing these acts (and not highlighting that Chris Brown too is a victim — that is a complete and utter b.s.), we will never move pass the dark ages.  We will stay stuck wishing for a twilight of humanity. I hope we can be reminded that all these technology will not advance civilization if people who are too weak to protect themselves are continually treated with dilapitated quality.
