Men are not the only abusers.

Women beat, batter, and bruse just as often as men do.

Believe it.

Peace to the guys at MensActivism for posting this beauty:

Anonymous writes "This article in Psychiatric News should be distributed to as many editors, politicians, educators etc. as possible. Excerpt:

'In addressing intimate partner violence, the focus is usually on women who are physically battered by husbands or boyfriends. However, women sometimes hurt their partners as well.

Women are doing virtually everything these days that men are - working as doctors, lawyers, and rocket scientists; flying helicopters in combat; riding horses in the Kentucky Derby. And physically assaulting their spouses or partners.

In fact, when it comes to nonreciprocal violence between intimate partners, women are more often the perpetrators.'"


Stuff like this is a far cry from the typical feminist line that:

All men are rapists and that's all they are" -- Marilyn French, Authoress; (later, advisoress to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)


Kumo tha Dude learned a long time ago that women dish out tha violence on the same scale that they receive it. In my 'hood, girls were fighting all comers like a one legged man in an ass-kicking contest.

Taking the Project Chicks from my area for a joke was a quick and easy way for an unsuspecting guy to get FUCKED UP [1][2][3].

The policy I adopted then, which I still hold to today, is that any person, male or female, with the will and the skill to cause me serious physical harm, is liable for an ass whuppin, off top.

If a chick wants to fight me like a man, then she is gonna get beat down like a man.

For real.

As a matter of fact, as the article points out, not a small number of incidents involve women initiating violent episodes. Often times, these girls goad their partners, male or female, until the other person ends up, out of frustration or anger, assaulting her.

Around my way, the saying, "Don't start no shit, won't be no shit," is an expression that would prevent a portion of women from getting their arses kicked by their significant other. If you treat a dog with all the sense that God (Blessed be He) gave a chicken, and the dog ends up taking a bite out of your ass, then you have no one to blame but yourself.

People reap what they sow, and women are not exempt from this Universal Law.

At the same time, a man that beats on his woman just because he can is not a man at all, he is a monster that deserves to get dealt with, the pre-VAWA way.

Guys and dolls alike should learn to keep their hands to themselves, and play nice nice.

Anywhoo, this article is another fine example of how the "all women are victims" line is nothing more than a hot, steaming pile of BULLSHIT!

Have a nice day.

Kumo the Realist One.

I'll relate the following story, which has a bit of relevance here...

When I was a newlywed, (which is why I'm not a part of MGTOW...I'm still married) my wife was a typical American Women who had no qualms about hitting me when she got angry.

Once, she got so angry with me when we were arguing, she tried to punch me in the face.

Now, I've been training martial arts for half my life, and without even thinking, I BLOCKED her punch with so much force, I literally shattered her jade bracelet and caused a huge bruise on her arm.

She immediately began crying and told me "I can't believe you hit me?!?!"

I told her, "I did NOT hit you...you tried to hit me and I BLOCKED it! And anytime you try to hit me again, expect the same, because I won't HIT you, but I certainly will NOT let you hit me!!! This is total bullshit! IF I tried to hit you, you would call the police on me, you'd go crying to your dad and he'd want to kick my ass, and I would be in jail for domestic violence...but YOU can hit me whenever you want? I don't think so! If you EVER take another swing at me, this marriage is OVER."

That was 8 years ago, and she's never tried to take a swing at me again.

It's funny, but even back then, when I was only 25 years old and had no real awareness of the the MRA issues, I still had some consciousness about the double standard of domestic violence and the law...and I lay down the law at the beginning of our marriage that I would not accept it at all - as far as I was concerned, domestic violence is a two way street. If it's a crime for me to hit her, it should be exactly the same standard for her as well.

Exactly right.

Unless a woman is absofreaking nuts, most women get the message when they are informed, in no uncertain terms, that violence on their part will not be tolerated.

In my case, my wife and I wrestle around a bit, and my wife also trains at the same school I do, so we try to practice techniques on each other (think Mr. and Mrs. Smith :P ), but there is no hitting, striking, pushing, or slapping in anger.

Unfortunately, I see a lot of men who simply take a beating and "grin and bear it." That's the wrong way to go. What you did with your wife is, in my opinion, the best way to prevent any unseemly incidents.

Kumo out.

"I lay down the law at the beginning of our marriage that I would not accept it at all - as far as I was concerned, domestic violence is a two way street. If it's a crime for me to hit her, it should be exactly the same standard for her as well."

Exactly right. And this true equality is what this blog is all about!

Keep pimpin' bro.

I had a friend who was in a marriage that he was complaining about a lot. We sat down and really talked about it, and after hearing his story I said that to me, it sounded like his wife was trying to get him to beat her up. I warned him he'd go to jail and she wouldn't, he agreed that that was the most likely outcome, he didn't want to go to jail. He was really angry and she had pulled a lot of really nasty stuff, but he didn't want to go to jail because she played him for a sucker.

Anyway, he agreed he should be extremely careful around her and was on his guard. Eventually they got divorced, and he said that one time after the divorce he asked her if she really was trying to get him to beat her up and she said, "Yes"!

Just as a note, she got his new car, he had to pay $10k for welfare fraud she committed, and he didn't get a penny of a sizeable inheritance she got and hid from him, right about the time she started acting really badly to him.

Anyone who tells you American feminists want equality is full of it!

Interesting!

As I've been doing a lot of (informal) research into a hypothesis of mine.

Did your friend ask his ex wife why she wanted him to beat her up?

Did she want him to be more forceful and take charge, albeit in a very misdirected manner, or did she want him to beat her up because she would win out in divorce court?

See these sites:

It seems that there is a subset of women out there who seek out a more "hands on" kind of relationship, because they are unaware of better ways to channel their desires for a strong man that is worthy of wearing the pants in the family.

Could it be that some of these women seek out "bad boys" because authentic manliness is so difficult to find these days?

I hear you on this one I remember seeing a fight between a guy and a girl and te guy got JACKED UP. I couldn't believe it.

"black women have waaaaaaaaay too much testosterone."

Hellz yeah! It would be all I could do to seriously whupp up on some sistas out here.

And these are the victims of "domestic violence?"

Yeah right.

Methinks that some folks need to spend some time in the hood and see how things work in the real world.

He's not entitled to her inheritance any more than she would have been entitled to his inheritance. Anyone who takes their spouse's inheritance is a theif. An inheritance is a gift from one's parents to the child, not to the marriage. If he were entitled to it, he would have gotten a portion of it.

I don't understand what's wrong with men and women who have this mentality of entitlement.

Isn't anyone aware that the simplist solution is a pre-nuptual agreement??
