You’d think that addressing the widespread domestic violence that affects homes across the US would be an issue both parties can agree on….

You’d be wrong.

A new battle over renewing the Violence Against Women Act has conservatives turning their backs on relationship violence victims, particularly those in same-sex relationships, immigrants, and Native Americans.  Notice conservatives’ demands do not disadvantage straight, white, cis-men who are also a minority group when it comes to domestic violence.  It’s clear that this dispute is over the same old sexist, homophobic, racist bullshit constantly coming from the political right.

It’s one level of evil to endorse a culture where relationship violence is not only commonplace, but constantly justified.  It is another level to turn around and leave survivors of relationship violence without anywhere to turn for help.
