Let’s say you are shopping in one of your favorite stores and you see a woman being abused by a man. Would you help her? Now what if the victim was a man and he was being abused by a woman? Or even two people of the same gender and one was abusing the other. Do you think the victim in each situation needs help? Why and how?

I personally believe that every gender has no right to be discriminated against. If you see someone being abused try to at least report it to authorities. You could potentially save someone’s life.

I created this thread because I am interested to hear other’s opinions and thoughts on this subject.

Edit: This can be any type of abuse. However in this context I am mostly referring to physical and verbal.

I would call 911 if I see this happening to both genders

I would like to say that i would try and help, but honestly: i would not know the context - they could be a couple having a bad day, or even siblings. Also, there's the bystander effect, which would probably affect me - especially since i'm pretty introverted myself.

Tell somebody and don't get involved. Never get involved in other peoples fights.

I learned that one in grade school.

I don't bother with another persons issues. On another note, what do you define as abuse? There are some common things most would agree on I'm sure, but some to a much lesser extent. Interested to hear yours.

I do not know if I would step into the fray, but I would definitely call 911 and alert the store manager to call also. So no, I could not idly stand by and do nothing...regardless of gender.

I would contact authorities and carefully intervene if it looks like is safe to do so.

Why would I do this? It's just the right the to do I suppose, no one should be abused.

I feel that although many people would feel that they would want to do something and help the individual regardless of gender, it's very tough to actually do something when you're faced with the situation face-to-face.

As an example, just look at all those "social study" video's on youtube...It's terrifying to see how many people would just walk past.

What if the victim is into that sort of thing? (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Verbal abuse, nah, ain't my place.

Physical abuse I might intervene.

I've called 911 on a man who was beating his wife in public.
I don't regret it at all

I was walking towards the grocery store when I saw this Hispanic guy beating his wife.
The cops came and I went on my way.
