I read a diary today, and I won't call out the person cause I feel they just didn't understand. But it seemed they said cause a women, like 105 pounds, had slapped a 250 pound male it was OK for him to slap her back. I got huge issues with that.
In my little rural town of 8,700 folks I pick up the yearly crime report. The first thing you notice is all the zeros. Zero murders. Zero burglars. Zero this. Zero that.
Then another number jumps up. 600+ domestic violence calls and like 68 arrests.
Much more below the fold ...
It isn't OK for you to put your hands on a women. Grab her by the arm. Slap her. It just isn't OK. It stuns me I have to say this, but alas I feel the need. I've been pushed by a women I dated. Even slapped. Those were things they should not have done, but I never thought to myself I should do the same to them. I just thought they were not a person I should date.
I say a lot of this cause I learned something years ago (well just a few years ago). That my mom had been married to somebody before my dad. My mom and dad have been married for 47 years. Her first husband beat her. She got out of that relationship. Something only my father has talked to me about, cause well he begged me not to ever mention to my mom I knew.
You don't put your hands on a women. You don't push back. It isn't acceptable.
