Since the video with Solange fighting Jay-Z in an elevator at a Met gala after party surfaced, the internet has been flooded with Memes, sarcastic tweets, and heavy speculation about what caused the altercation. But, one thing that repeatedly stood out to me was the continuous references to Chris Brown and women beating.
What is with society and it’s justification on violence towards women? Are men nowadays so “weak” that the only way for them to get a women to submit is with violence? Where is this blatant misogyny coming from? I even see women posting the Chris Brown memes on their Instagram accounts, like it’s the funniest thing. When I know that the majority of those women would throw a fit of epic proportions if a man even spoke to them wrong.
A man hitting a woman for any reason is wrong. Likewise, I also believe the same for a woman hitting a man. Violence is never the answer, and only leads to more violence and issues in the future.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
