    Thank you for reaching out. Indeed women can be the abuser in the relationship; however, abuse on the woman is the most prevalent form. Check out this video with statistics on domestic violence:
    VerizonCSRVideos&#39;s Channel - YouTube
    The Monsters in the Closet video you reference was developed to bring to light domestic violence in the home with children.

    According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, witnessing violence between parents or caregivers is the strongest risk factor for transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next...because that is the world that they know.

    The Verizon Foundation is committed to investing in the improvement of education and in the prevention of domestic violence. The Verizon Foundation supports hundreds of different groups focused on helping all members of our community -- women, men, children, elders, and families -- who are dealing with domestic violence or other kinds of abuse. These are important issues that affect our customers, employees and communities. We appreciate different points of view. I thank you for your attention.

    Hmmmm, another way to reinforce the notion that dads are inconvenient, irrelevant and unnecessary.

    Unnecessary, that is, until the money runs out.............................

    Re: Dad's are "Monster's"

    Now
    , let's direct a number of polite but stern, intelligently written e-mails and FAX letters to the CEO and Executives(do not forget to spell-check and make sure the message is brief and relies on reputable sources.)
    212-395-1060 is the number for the CEO's office.

    212-719-3349 is the fax number for the CEO's office.

    212-321-8700 is Verizon Executive Customer Service.

    ivan.g.seidenberg@verizon.com is the CEO's email address (Ivan Seidenberg), he may actually be the Chairman, while McAdam -- the CEO.



    Verizon's general communications services, such as VerizonFIOS and other broadband and telecom services are traditionally sub-par, customer service poor and unresponsive, reliability terrible and actual bandwidth way below the advertised. So, getting services from other vendors is actually advantageous to a telecom customer. Verizon is on the list of the targeted businesses by the OWS for terrible treatment of their line workers. As you can see, unlike workers, execs are all well-paid.



    Other Key Executives, their age and pay



    Mr. Lowell C. McAdam , 56

    Chief Exec. officer, Pres, Chairman of The Verizon Wireless, Director and Director of The Verizon Wireless 2.86M

    ----------------------------------------

    Re: Dad's are "Monster's"

    Tell Verizon to immediately remove its ugly "Monsters" video. Contact Bob Varettoni, Executive Director of Media Relations:
    See press release below.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    PRESS RELEASE
    Contact: Teri Stoddard
    Telephone: 301-801-0608
    Email: tstoddard@saveservices.org
    Verizon Video Teaches Children to Fear Fathers, SAVE Charges
    Washington, DC/November 29, 2011 -- A domestic violence video produced by the Verizon Foundation distorts the facts, plays on emotions, and serves to alarm and frighten young children. Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE), an advocate for domestic violence victims, has communicated with Verizon executives about the numerous factual errors, but the company refuses to correct its dangerous misinformation.
    Titled "Monsters," the video revels in powerful yet destructive stereotypes: fathers as abusers, wives as victims, and young boys as future abusers. "The child who lives with domestic violence... is afraid of the monster just down the hall," a girl's voiceover intones, while frightening images of a hunchbacked monster-dad flit across the screen: http://www.multivu.com/mnr/52044-verizon-foundation-national-domestic-hotline-video-launch-monsters
    Verizon's aim in making the video -- to help victims caught in abusive relationships -- was noble. But the corporation is condoning the cycle of violence, since half of all partner abuse is mutual. An exhaustive California State University review of scholarship determined that levels of partner aggression are the same, if not higher, among females: http://csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm
    This past Sunday a Philadelphia woman struck her boyfriend with her car when he attempted to escape the vehicle. The man was crushed by the impact and pronounced dead at the scene: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/angry_girlfriend_kills_beau_with_xRacWhxDNQjqDrY4f VQMHL#ixzz1f3B7TotP . And a recent Washington Post article documented growing levels of aggressive behavior among women on campuses and in schools:http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/violent-incidents-involving-female-students-surge-on-campuses-in-schools/2011/11/11/gIQAOsMJJN_story.html
    The compelling -- but unfounded -- stereotype of an abuser population of men may prevent half of domestic violence victims from reporting their abuse, and half its perpetrators from receiving the intervention they need.
    "This video is particularly disturbing since the use of animation makes it appealing to children. It smears adult men as the only abusers in a household, when the fact is women are as likely to abuse their partners as men," explains SAVE spokesman Philip W. Cook. "This video is dangerously harmful to children and to families."
    SAVE has documented that domestic violence misinformation is widespread and undermines the credibility and effectiveness of legitimate abuse-reduction programs: http://www.saveservices.org/downloads/SAVE-DV-Educational-Programs

    Re: Dad's are "Monster's"

    Due to a busy life over the last few days, I've only just got reading this thread.

    I posted an email to them before realising SAVE had got involved (not that it would affect my decision to write up a complaint).
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    I guess Verizon forgot....


    From Glenn Sacks:


    Verizon Hears Us

    December 2, 2004


    Verizon has informed His Side listeners and supporters that the "Homework" ad which was the subject of our protest will no longer be aired. We commend Verizon for understanding our concerns. It is our hope that, given the extensive publicity and support our campaign has received, Verizon and other companies will keep these concerns in mind when planning future advertising campaigns. Thanks to the thousands of you who called and wrote Verizon.

    Best Wishes,
    Glenn Sacks

    Good news kinda....then I read this;

    Verizon has pulled the Monsters video from its website…but it has NOT agreed to stop distributing it by DVD or other means – see article below. So don't carve that victory notch in your tomahawk quite yet.



    We've given Verizon until close of business Monday to yank the falsehoods from its website. If it fails to act, then we're going to…..



    In the meantime, feel free to give these Verizon executives a polite nudge:



    Bob Varettoni Executive Director of Media Relations: robert.a.varettoni@verizon.com

    Bill Kula, APR Director, Media Relations william.kula@verizon.com

    Bobbi Henson Director, Media Relations bobbi.henson@verizon.com

    Alberto Canal Director, Media Relations alberto.c.canal@verizon.com

    Re: Dad's are "Monster's"

    Thank you for reaching out. Indeed women can be the abuser in the relationship; however, abuse on the woman is the most prevalent form.
    More examples that feminist are sexist pigs. They simply dont judge people on the basis of the actions. They are always judged on the basis of their gender.
