Why do people like bruised & beat up skin in Second Life?

Why do people like bruised & beat up skins in Second Life? This question might be controversial but don’t you think they glorify violence against women?

I don’t wear them. They make me sad. I wonder to myself … who beat her up? What happened to her? I use to work with an abused woman. One time her boyfriend beat her for wearing too much perfume. He used to measure the perfume that was left in the bottle. He felt he owned her and didn’t want her flirting with other men wearing her sexy scents. Sometimes I think of her when I see these battered skins for sale.

I do enjoy the zombie skins and the broken cracked doll skins are fun also. But the ones with bruises and scrapes just seem wrong to me. Violence against women should not be celebrated or shown off like a new dress. But then again, maybe this is the skin of a girl who plays on a tough softball team or maybe she’s the star of her roller derby team. Yes, her name is Paisley PainMaker and don’t mess with her.

Statistics on Domestic Violence:
* One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime. (SOURCE: http://www.dvrc-or.org/domestic/violence/resources/C61/)
* Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. (SOURCE: http://domesticviolencestatistics.org/domestic-violence-statistics/)
* Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup. (SOURCE: http://domesticviolencestatistics.org/domestic-violence-statistics/)
* Between 600,000 and 6 million women are victims of domestic violence each year, and between 100,000 and 6 million men, depending on the type of survey used to obtain the data. (SOURCE: http://www.dvrc-or.org/domestic/violence/resources/C61/)
