Chile combats woman beating!!!

BeatingApparently the South American nation of Chile has gotten itself a new national pastime...

Wife beating. 

In fact it has become so popular that the Chilean Minister of the National Woman's Service, a Mrs. Carol Schmidt Zaldivar, is kicking off an aggressive new campaign to try and stomp out the horrific social trend.

And she even has a great slug line to sell it...

Maricon es el que maltrata a una mujer...

Loosely translated, the 'genius' tag line for her new campaign to combat woman beating is "You are a faggot if you hit a woman".

Now I know it doesn't take a genius to predict that a public service announcement is never going to affect the cause it intends to combat, but something tells me that this one is never going to work.

Expecting that calling guys who are beating their women "Faggets" will in some way stop them from doing so would be like the mayor of Atlanta expecting crime to go down if he brought about a policy of calling every young black male a filthy nigger.

Yet strangely, this half-baked idea has its supporters...

The recently freed Chilean miners are among those that have been seen sporting shirts with this tag lie on it.

The Minister, for her part, said that she's thrilled to have the backing of the miners, and hopes that the campaign can truly make a dent in preventing gender-based violence. "[This campaign is] an example of unity and consensus that we as a country want to eradicate domestic violence in Chilean homes," she said.

Right... cause an abused spouse calling her tormenter a "fagget" is really going to end with introspection and remorse...

More likely to end with a right cross.

Why do you make me hurt you...

Wows... talk about out of the box thinking...

domestic violence3A campaign to stomp out a behavior usually exhibited by unstable, violent men with poor self images and masculinity issues by referring to said behavior as pathetic and emasculating...

Did this campaign come along with the releasing of a pamphlet giving women some passive aggressive ways to communicate to her abusive mate that his behavior will no longer be tolerated?

"... Little things like serving supper a few minutes late and a little cold or spilling some coffee out of the cup and into the saucer or making him repeat himself more than once are some non-combative ways of telling your spouse "Your behavior towards me is unacceptable and really must stop"..."

It such total horseshit.

But it does remind me of a Public Service Announcement out of Canada from a few years back...
