Ignorant RJ makes light of VAW

Ignorant smart alecks can often hurt a cause more than the intentionally cruel elements in society.

I really lost it this evening as I was driving home from work. I had the local FM channel on as I usually do. The young man who was the RJ made a few announcements and then casually said: “By the way, today is also the International Day Against Violence Against Women. So guys remember to take flowers home for the wife and don’t criticize her cooking today. After all she is trying.”

I am not a violent person but if he had been anywhere close by, I would have punched him in the face. To make light of a cause that affects so many women and children around the world, is absolutely criminal. How can it be even remotely funny! Such is the mentality that we need to struggle against.

    The RJ’s of these new FM channels are basically spoiled brats with little or no idea about real RJ’ing. Radio is the most greatest way to communicate with the masses, and all these 20 somethings coming on radio who think they are really smart are doing a terrible job.
