These are very cleverly done but with a very serious message, please have a look.

I took that to mean "they stand by and do nothing" rather than relegating the victim to being an object, but it is easy to interpret it either way.

I think it's a valid point, but the other side is that it's often the mother or sister that enables, if not encourages, the abuse as much as anyone...

Those are excellent. I'm so impressed with the "not just a cover story" idea.

But I've learnt to notice how often women-as-humans-with-rights are erased from such handwringing.

Totally agree, it shifts the focus onto the person "not doing" something rather than keeping it on the victim.

It is very pervasive & often slips under the radar so you don't even realise you're minimising the victims until it's too late - I've fallen into this trap a few times I must admit.

I never though of it like that Buffy. I shall do a spot more thinking before I open my trap in future. Good work.
