Dating violence ‘warning signs’ too broad | Letter

Mar 05, 2014

Editor, The Beacon:

Teen dating violence is a serious issue, and Domestic Violence Services does important work to raise awareness, [“DVS working to prevent teen dating violence,” The Beacon, front page, Feb. 12].

However, I question the use of "Believes in the stereotypical gender roles" and "Owns or uses weapons" as warning signs of dating violence. These items seem overly broad, and I question their inclusion in such a list.
