Ramazzini versus the attack on health and safety By Dave Putson With an introduction by Mark Serwotka 'This is an important time to write the history of health and safety in the UK, given the near derision that the term now evokes in the media and from the Government. What Dave Putson demonstrates in writing this book is that health and safety, far from being the product of a more litigious society or the political agenda of overbearing bureaucrats, is rooted in human need, protecting people. This book describes how, over the last years, an evolving body of surveys, research, legal challenges and often tragic experiences led to an emergence of, at first, quite limited protections. Some of these histories will be familiar to the reader, like the match girls and 'phossy jaw', but others, like the seminal legal case of Priestley vs Fowler, are not. What the varied and fascinating histories indicate is that health and safety evolved to improve not only the workplace, but also our homes, our communities, our roads, our waterways, and public and environmental health Today, there are desperate attempts to reverse those gains.
Some of or all of the blame of the assault is then placed on these victims, and so they are not worthy of having their case presented in court. These perceptions persist in court rulings despite a shift in laws favoring affirmative consent- meaning that the participants in a sexual activity give a verbal affirmation rather than one participant who neither answers negatively nor positively.
In other words, affirmative consent is yes means yes and no means no. The ideal attacker does not know their victim and is a completely non-sympathetic figure- one who is considered sub-human, an individual lacking morals. An attacker that knows their victim is not considered an ideal attacker, nor is someone who seems morally ordinary.
Husbands and wives are not ideal victims or perpetrators because they are intimately familiar with each other. Victim blaming is common around the world, especially in cultures where it is socially acceptable and advised to treat certain groups of people as lesser. For example, in Somalia victims of sexual abuse consistently endure social ostracization and harassment.
While they did not detain the offender for long, the officers held Fatima captive for a month and a prison guard continually raped her during that time. Their children born of sexual violence faced even more discrimination. For instance, in New Delhi in , a group of men threw acid on a year-old girl because they believed she provoked the advances of a man.
A recent example of Western victim blaming would be a civil trial held in where the Los Angeles School District blamed a year-old girl for the sexual abuse she endured from her middle school teacher. The District's lawyer argued that the minor was responsible for the prevention of the abuse, putting the entire fault on the victim and exempting the perpetrator of any responsibility.
Despite his efforts to convince the court that the victim must be blamed, the ruling stated that no minor student that has been sexually assaulted by his or her teacher is responsible for the prevention of that sexual assault.
He argued that showing the victim's possible role in an altercation may be contrary to typical explanations of violence and cruelty, which incorporate the trope of the innocent victim. According to Baumeister, in the classic telling of "the myth of pure evil," the innocent, well-meaning victims are going about their business when they are suddenly assaulted by wicked, malicious evildoers.
Baumeister describes the situation as a possible distortion by both the perpetrator and the victim; the perpetrator may minimize the offense while the victim maximizes it, and so accounts of the incident shouldn't be immediately taken as objective truths. In context, Baumeister refers to the common behavior of the aggressor seeing themselves as more of the "victim" than the abused, justifying a horrific act by way of their "moral complexity".
This usually stems from an "excessive sensitivity" to insults, which he finds as a consistent pattern in abusive husbands. For instance, they argue that the claim that "women wearing provocative clothing cause rape" is as demeaning to men as it is to women as depicting men as incapable of controlling their sexual desire is misandrist and denies men full agency, while also arguing that the generalization that women do not lie about rape or any generalization about women not doing some things because of their gender is misogynist by its implicit assumption that women act by simple default action modes which is incompatible with full agency.
It's as crowded as the freeway, crammed with cars trying to get home or to a hotel before the dark clouds overhead unleash their fury. I inch along, wishing the traffic would vanish so I could gun the puny engine on my compact car and vent some of my emotions. Every time the scene from this morning intrudes on my mind, anger and pain flare up anew.
I'm sick of driving, sick of grieving, of wasting my tears on a man who doesn't deserve them. If I hadn't come home early and found Jason balls-deep in another woman, I'd still be planning our wedding. I need a drink and a hot bath and some mindless entertainment.
I need to be numb. My cell phone rings. I glance down and see that it's Jason. It's all I can do not to pick up the phone and hurl it straight through the windshield. It's only an instant that my eyes are off the road, but when I look up there's a truck stopped right in front of me. With no time to brake, I wrench the steering wheel, jerking my car sideways into the next lane - just as a bright blue sports car whips into the same spot from the other side.
Its front bumper hits the passenger side of my car with a sickening crunch, bouncing my head off the window next to me, then snapping me back the other way.
The impact spins my car around. I end up facing the wrong way, the oncoming traffic dividing frantically around me like water going past the prow of a ship. I'm too stunned to move; for long moments, I just sit there staring. I'm finally numb, but not the way I wanted. Maybe I messed up in another life, and today is some kind of karmic revenge. My lower lip trembles, and I bite down on it.
Self-pity sucks, and no matter what, I will not start crying again. A tap on my side window makes me jump. I turn my head to see a man peering in at me. Dark hair, dark eyes, shoulders as broad as a house. The kind of sexy that starts a slow burn between my legs, even in my current state. Why does he seem so familiar? When I don't respond, he opens my door. I'm sorry," I say, straightening in my seat. Undoing my seat belt, I turn to get out of the car.
The man takes my hand to help me up. Electric heat surges up my arm and through my body, flooding me with sensation. A detached corner of my mind notices my entirely inappropriate response, and wonders if it's because I'm in shock. He backs away to give me room.
Now I can see the other man, standing by the flashy blue car with his arms folded. Same hair, same eyes, same massive build. Same sinfully-high sex appeal oozing from every gorgeous pore.
At first I wonder if I'm seeing double; then it hits me. No wonder they seem familiar! Brock and Cody Easton are twins, first-year draft picks, and star players for the Leopards. As I stand up, the man by the car - is he Cody or Brock? There's something other than concern in his gaze and he's not even trying to be subtle about it.
His eyes travel down my body and up again, taking in my curves, and his expression changes from annoyance to speculation. My skin feels too tight all of a sudden, as if my nerve endings were trying to push through, leap across the space between us, and wrap themselves around him.
What the hell is wrong with me? It's only been a few hours since I packed my car and left my asshole of an ex, I was just in a car accident, and here I am salivating over two men I haven't even properly met.
Granted, they are the hottest men I've ever laid eyes on.
But still. It's an enormous hand - it engulfs mine, and I am not a petite woman. But I only have an instant to process that, because at the contact with his rough, warm skin, heat flows through me once more.
This time, my nipples go hard. I tell myself it's the stress. That's why I'm getting more turned on than I ever did from Jason's touch, right here in the middle of the street, with honking cars all around us. I want to believe it, but I know it's not true.
The other thing I know is that I need to stop feeling this way.
I pull my hand free and look at his brother. My dad's told me about you both. He's devastatingly sexy, just like his twin - and he knows it. Traffic is still going by us, but very slowly because people keep stopping to take photos of the twins through their car windows, even though night has fallen. Please visit her online at www.
