  •  And I am also disturbed by this misogynistic (6+ / 0-)

    comment. I let misogyny slide all the time on this blog but not today and especially not on this diary.

    "Women must have it hammered into their heads that, no matter how loving her boyfriend can be, if she pushes the wrong button, he will kill her."

    Yes, why don't we instill fear in all women because men cannot control themselves. Therefore, women have to live marginalized lives.

    If men are just these violent volcanoes ready to erupt at the right provocation from those damn women who push the buttons, wouldn't it be easier to just kill all men? Problem solved, huh?

    Seriously, that makes about as much sense as your argument to limit women's lives and controlling the behaviors of a victims instread of abusers.

    Besides, women don't need to be "warned". We know the danger, we live it every day. What we need are men in society to take responsibility for their actions and a legal and political system that protects us just like men are protected when violated. Prevention is the cure and only the abusers can prevent it...by not doing it.
