No Abuse with that Burger Please


Hello Ladies and Gents,

Left and right the culinary world is exercising their right to take positions on more than margarine vs, butter. Recently Chic-fil-A added homophobia to their recipe. Now restaurants across America have added abuse to their mix. Ms. Magazine blog reported an uprising of ignorant business owners capitalizing off of their trivialization of domestic abuse.  Right: a chalkboard window display proves food & beverage establishments should stick to their day jobs and leave the comedy to those without such a sick sense of humor.

Moral of the story: There is no such thing as a funny joke about domestic abuse, so don’t bother.  25% of women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. That’s nothing to laugh at, or capitalize from.

Help? Whether you need help, or you want to give help you can find shelters here. You can use your dollar to put an end to domestic abuse here, and you can learn more about how and what you can do to help here.

  1. And 25% is, in my opinion, quite low and not reflective of the true numbers. I guess that’s why they’re called statistics. Thanks for sharing.

    • That’s True Paula. Honestly you have to wonder how many women don’t report their domestic abuse for one reason or another. For example, recently in New Hampshire they ammended a law that states that a restraining order has to be violated three times before a person will be arrested. It only takes once for someone to get hurt. So what’s the point of filing?

      • It’s so sad. However, if we continue to condem those who trivialize and capitalize off of their pain, hopefully these women will feel they have the support needed to get help. So glad you connected with the post.
