Teacher's Note: This emerged from a writing assignment I gave on the connections between language and violence.
Domestic violence often starts with words such as B**** and H*. When men say this to women they are threatening them like their dogs and that's not right because that's not what women are and they shouldn't be threatened that way. That also leads to domestic violence because when men say all those types of things to females they treat them like animals and they can even hit them and make them feel like they are less than what they are. So in my opinion racial or sexist words have to do with domestic violence; they are related to each other because those words are the ones that lead to domestic violence.
