The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

RE: Society And Physical Abuse
I dont know where to start with this and what opinions I have about it, but I can bet that its a bit different than most.

I've known women that were 10 times more dangerous than a lot of men I've known, yet when defending against a women, the man is automatically considered to be the aggressor and at fault.

I figure if a woman behaves like a man, I'll treat her like one, and that means everything that goes along with that statement.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

I think its spot on. I've been the victim of domestic abuse and no one really gets it, even my family side in with my wife at times.

This. This is what pisses me off righteously about the world we live in. This is why I try and do everything in my power to change it. Even if I just change a few peoples ideas, that is a start.

It is probably because males are supposed to be the power and girls are supposed to sit and cook. If females beat up males it is funny because of this stereotype. Simply put males are like dogs while females are like hamsters, it is funny when they hamster beats the crap out of the dog.

It's the remnant of sexism.

Long as you push people into stereotypes because of gender, you're going to have these issues.

People are people, and they all can have all human traits. Gender has nothing to do with it.

Of course there's this, now famous video...





I have to say Jay Z or the bodyguard could have struck back but didn't.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It's a remnant of Feminism. Female on male violence is completely unexpected in the standard feminist narrative of the evil patriarchy and the victimized females.

They didn't because the shear cacophony that would have been raised would have ruined his career. He would have been the abuser in that scenario, period.

Its the same reason that if a guy calls the DV line he will most likely get arrested not the abuser. Because penis.
