    I know this question shifts the blame on the woman. But, if she is getting her ass kicked all the time, why doesn`t she just leave? I never been the one to be in or a part of a abusive relationship like this so i guess i have a hard time understanding.

    Is that real or make up? She looks like she was burned or something. It`s hard to believe guys like that exist or women stick around after it happens even once. What does the note at the end say?

    okay no I`m sorry but she`s a drating idiot, okay so what? Instead of standing up and asking for help, instead of drating doing something about it, I`m just gonna take pictures everyday and then make some drating emotional video? drat YOU. stop trying to be a drating martyr and make a difference. Instead, say no I`m not going to let this happen, stop being so goddamn weak.

    Okay- that was make-up. Your face swells- a lot- and takes quite a while to heal. As for leaving, well, the abuser rend to isolate his victim first, they have to prep them for what is to come, so by the time the second blow- the one that means it is not a one off accident- lands- the abused does not see she will be believed, or feel responsible, feels alone. They also feel responsible for what happens and often they keep quiet to protect others- an elderly parent, a child, whoever.
    I am lucky, I am alive and 25 years after it finished, I am over it. Many do not live to recover....

    I thought women with "battered wife syndrome" always hide the abuse. She was documenting it. And if she didn`t have BWS why`d she stay?

    Okay, faked for the PSI. Got the message, moving on.

    2929AZDR the translation is "please help me, i can`t wait tomorrow".
    Anyway this is a PSA,she is an actress and the bruises are make up. I hope to don`t have spoiled this video for you. I think that in any case is still very effective and well done.

    I`ve want to see a PSA documenting ambient abuse like gas lighting. Let`s say that she`s locked herself in a dark bathroom simply to find some space and jerk face won`t leave her alone as she struggles to disassociate. After a while her loneliness drives her to listen to the voice which has calmed considerably on the other side of the door. He speaks to her comfortingly, informing her that what she thinks has happened hasn`t actually happened...her memories become distorted and she perceives herself as the antagonist...insane and unlovable. She`s so grateful to have this man in her life because surely no one else would be able to tolerate an abject monster like she and so, she opens the door and falls into the embrace of the beast once more.

    xxsevynxx, "if she is getting her ass kicked all the time, why doesn`t she just leave?"
    Because women are not responsible for their own lives, they are victims... always. That`s a politically correct law. In reality they are a victim the first time he hits her. If she`s dumb enough to stay after that she`s a volunteer.

    There are some major bitches out there who deserve a good punch in the mouth. But a man just does not do that. It`s a line you don`t cross. You walk away. Even if she deserves it.

    Any man who hits a woman isn`t a man, he`s a pussy.

    If a man ever beat me, he better sleep with one eye open...I am the only girl out of a family of nothing but really big boys and because of that I learned how to defend myself..So I had to get mean back a few times..Even if it meant a few broken noses on their part, so be it.. They learned not to pick on me anymore.

    they didn`t do a very good job on the makeup, some times her bruised eye takes 5-6 photos to clear up, sometimes it took 7-10

    she needs to get that cancerous mole on her face removed

    Okay- abuse is not confined to men beating women- but that is very common. A fight is a fight, it is always wrong to hit someone who cannot or will not fight back. none of this has anything to do with domestic violence.
    I simply hope that those of you who do not even try to understand are never in a position to find out- and a lot of you won`t. If you have a close and open family you are probably safe, likewise a close friend group- but do not be complacent- domestic violence is complicated, dangerous and it kills. But the idea that all you have to do is leave is the reason it continues.... that shifts the blame onto the victim, once it is their fault we can all do nothing. If you suspect it- report it. A victim needs a safe place, support, to be believed and more than anything, to understand they are not a lesser being, not mad, not at fault. by the time they are beaten with any regularity they will not be capable of leaving, they will be isolated anyway, so if a family member..

    It`s actually about as common for a man to hit a woman as for a woman to hit a man.

    Moral of the story: Women need to learn to not hit like pussies.

    I am not small, not stupid, not shy- but for ten years I was beaten to within an inch of my life. I had everything I owned taken from me - I could not leave because I was penniless with a successful charming husband. Perfect life, lovely kids- but at home, all that steak etc was for him- I ate bread and what left overs I could scape off the wall. If you asked me I would smile and swear all was fine- because I honestly thought he would find me wherever I went- he threatened harm to the children, to my elderly grandmother, and told everyone I was neurotic and mad. I could no more have walked out than I could have flown. It is easier nowadays as the support is miles better... but still, it is not just a question of leaving...

    I am assuming the reason why some don`t leave is the same reason I have twice not noticed the girl I was with was a total bitch. It just happens slowly over time so you don`t really notice it, till it somehow seems normal. Then you have zero self confidence left and the obvious choice is somehow not so obvious.

    Only in my case it was being nagged/ hen pecked/ controlled, but I was lucky enough to not be married to them before it happened. Goodbye suckers!

For the peole that say she just have to leave i say that is so easy to think like that while sitting in front of your PC in your warm room maybe surrounded by a lovely family. I tend to give more credit on what madduck says.

    Fake or not, this video is scary and as Madduck and geckohead demonstrated more common than we realize. My mom was in a similiar situation as Madduck, so I know the helplessness my mom felt first hand. As they did, my mom got out of that situation but when us kids were grown up. Fight nights were a scary thing, not only for moms but for the kids.

    Thank you Piperfawn. No I am fine- but this is something I have first hand experience- and because of that I know I can knock back many myths about it. I also know how serious violence can go hidden and unnoticed for years... and yes- I know it is not just women who get beaten. Makes no odds what gender- domestic violence is an ugly things...

    paperduck-"It`s hard to believe guys like that exist"

    Unfortunately, it`s not hard to believe at all. There`s some insicure small-minded SOB`s out there.

    checter5-"It`s actually about as common for a man to hit a woman as for a woman to hit a man."

    All things being equal, it`s not equal.

    For one, `women` is a protected group, while men are told to suck it up.
    For another, no matter what NOW will tell you, generally speaking a man is able to do much more damage to a woman than a woman is to a man.

    Any male who hits a woman is not a man. And any female who takes advantage of men who refuse to hit a woman is no woman.

    We had a couple of bruisers living in my building. He ended up with more black eyes than she did. Little Asian girl would go ninja on his white-boy ass and throw pots and pans at him. After I kicked them out I had to replace every door and patch a lot of walls.

    I don`t understand why anyone stays in that kind of relationship. He`s as stupid as she is for putting up with it. And by staying, he gave her permission to do it again.

    But her, according to all the female neighbors she was a poor victim of domestic violence and he was the bastard. Then how come he had the black eyes?

    I think they`re both jackasses.

    To all you "why doesn`t she leave" people. It`s not that simple. I agree that logic dictates that it should be. But there are some messed up psychological factors mixed up into the decision making, that doesn`t follow logic.

    First off, this bitch needs to quit running into doors.
    Now that the humor is out of the way, there is no reason why she couldn`t just say drat it I am leaving. Pack her poo and go somewhere safe. There is no psychology involved. Either you don`t care enough about the beatings to leave, or you find pleasure in it.
