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 .
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.
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.
