can emerge from patriarchy and gender inequality does the woman need someone to open the door or are you dominating her we participate in symbolic violence sometimes happily also a process of humiliation we blame ourselves how it acts our physically often triggered through agency it s their fault for the situation that they re in structural violence creates situations that are very difficult to get out of but the person doesn t see that they see themselves as the point of fault the suffering that they re doing is not necessarily their fault the condition in which they have to experience their lives is not ethical in this wealthy country In order to locate your prestige and worth you have to take on subjectivities what s being misrecognized as say masculine should be recognized as violent and yet is recognized as powerrespect also a form of structural violence created from the scenario they re born into or ending up in structural violence forces them to seek out the misrecognized symbolic violence and everyday violence like rap videos what s wrong with rap videos and success stories
