Abuse is despicable

Martina de Wit, Fish Hoek

What is woman and child abuse? What is human abuse – men, women and children?

It is using a person badly or wrongly. It is wicked to abuse a human being, be it man, woman or child.

Abuse is despicable, deserving hatred and contempt.

We do not hear about abused men. They may be married to a bad-tempered or nagging woman.

What about the perpetrators?

What about the silent majority? They are loving and affectionate. They care for and protect a child while they are growing up and developing. They show concern and interest.There are a large number of them. A host of them.
