they had way more evidence and reason to arrest Josh Powell in Utah than Zimmerman in Florida. Might it actually be more risky to be a woman in Utah then a black man in Florida.

    "Woman is the "n" of the world" "Lennon/Ono"

    sounds like bull to many but explain away how come authorities allow men to repeatedly beat the hell out of their wives and girlfriends. I don't know how many times I've heard, "She asked for it."
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    I had a brother in law like that. What baffles me more is why they keep going back.

    My best friend from High School just lost his daughter to some psychopath. Wives are not property and no man should be allowed to put his hands on her without some consequence.

    Monkey nailed it. If he was non-LDS things may have been different.
    Plus the Flyers Penguins game on NBC tomorrow is being pre-empted for the LDS general conference broadcast. Bastards!

    Wait I thought only Muslims mistreated their women.

    Seems to me women who keep going back to abusers are, in a way, asking for, in that they have such low self-esteem they just feel they must deserve.
    I am not in favor of hitting women, but, if one were to hit me first she'd better have a pillow on her butt because she'd be landing on it. Violence begets violence.

    I don't know, my SIL is smart makes good money but she always ended up going back to him. My wife got me involved twice against my better judgment. Finally after 12 years and two children they divorced and moved on with their lives. I just don't understand the mindset that keeps them going back for more. It's not like she needed him for support. Go figure.

    I think it's flawed science. She didn't do anything to deserve getting beat like that.

    but we've already heard that they're sorta asking for it

    I see many years of women's rights down the drain because of the Republican agenda. We are under attack. Sorry to my Repub friends, I was once one of you.
  • SaraSara Senior Member Posts: 511 Senior Member
    Sometimes women go back because they can not make it financially without the man. Survival. Or perceived survival. And there is a stigma attached to single women and single mothers. I am fortunate to have a good career, and I can survive financially without a man; even with a teen, who has champagne taste on a water budget!

    Now your getting crazy again.

    What does personnel responsibility have to do with a man beating up on his wife.
    Please share this twisted logic.

    I never thought about the single mom thing. From my vantage point it made no sense what so ever.

    Witnessed that with a neighbor. Wasn't till she moved out that the bruises on her arms and legs made sense. And the way the kids would act about certain things. Dad had the purse strings and made her dance to his tune. Funny though he is and accountant and kind of a worm. Guess the stereotype of a large brute in a beater shirt doesn't all ways fit the bill.

    Really? You can't take a punch from a girl?

    Walk out and don't return without a sheriff for your things.

    that's not the way the Duke would do it and we all know what a real man he was

    Well he also comes from the "Gone With the Wind" era where date **** was considered romantic.
