    OK, WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO with what we're talking about? I know a women who burned her boyfriends house down, I'm talking about LYING about abuse, not defending it. Jesus, get a grip.

We start pushing back and you guys whine like little babies.

    Should that woman have pressed charges, probably. But you have no real understanding of her life. Maybe she's dependent on him to help support her kids and if he goes to jail she loses that paycheck. WTH do you know about it?
    OK, you completely missed the point, but that does not surprise me in the least. You're too busy defending all women.

    All men are abusive. If there's a dispute, the man is lying.

    Oh, here's a funny story:

    Halloween back in 2003 I was driving to work dressed as a woman. I witnessed a physical assault (not funny at all) when a man struck his girlfriend. I immediately stopped the car and yelled at the man to knock it off. He said "fuck you." I jumped out the car and ran after the prick and if I had caught him, I was going to whip his ass good! He ran inside (like the true coward he was) and I stood out front of his house and called the police on my cell. When the cop got there, he said to me "Are you OK, ma'am?"

    In the end, the gal did not want to press charges and even lied to protect him.



    You're doing it online? Impressive.
    When I was a teenager, me and a friend were walking down the street one night. We heard a commotion coming from one house and soon realized that it was a guy beating up a woman. We were just a couple of kids so we weren't about to confront him. We went from house to house trying to find someone to call the police. It took a while because way too many people just didn't want to get involved. We finally found someone who did call the cops. Then we hid across the street to see what would happen next. First thing that happened is the guy left on his own. After he was gone, the cops showed up. The woman didn't want to press charges and asked them to leave.
    It happens pretty frequently. First of all, she presses charges and then he gets out on bail. He'll be good and pissed then. He's liable to literally kill her. She might not have anywhere she could go to get away from him. Or she's fallen into the horrible cycle of an abusive relationship where she convinces herself that it's her fault he hits her. Because that's her way of finding some kind of control over a situation where the main thing is she's powerless. And then there's the cycle where he hits her and then apologizes. She rationalizes this as somehow the times that he's not a complete piece of shit outweigh the times he is. It's kind of a survival mechanism.

    Many years ago a guy volunteered his mother to give two other women, and me a ride home. Trouble was, she arrived to pick up her son in a truck. There was enough room in the cab for the two other women, the guy and i had to ride in the back (this was so long ago, it was legal).

    Because it was cold, one of the women let the guy wear her raincoat, and her scarf on his head. In the dark on the freeway, with the scarf, and raincoat, other male drivers couldn't tell he was a he, and flirted with him.

    He said he never realized before how that must feel to a woman, and said he'd never behave that way again.

    Last year, I saw a guy pouring a drink over a woman's head as she sat on the sidewalk. I slammed on the breaks and told him to KNOCK IT THE FUCK off. I walked over and he of course ran away, I asked who that was, she said it was her ex-boyfriend. I told her to tell him that I was looking for him. I swear, I do this kind of shit all the time. I don't want a cookie, I just want people in this thread to recognize that men very often take up for women.

    A lot of men have NO CLUE how frightened women are of being hooted and hollered at and how much they hate it. I have never met a women who actually liked that, not a one. I get it and I NEVER do it.

    I think so too. But thing is, with a lot of these predators, they aren't doing what they do in front of another guy. Like Louis CK. He wasn't jerking off in front of women with a man present. And these women weren't going to say anything to anyone. They'd have been well within their rights to. But they were embarrassed. Who can blame them? Matt Lauer had a button on his desk to lock the door to his office that he used specifically so that no one could walk in when he was sexually assaulting or harassing women.

    And I know a woman who's ex-husband said his girlfriend bought him his car, and made the mortgage payments on his house to get out of paying child support.

    The point is that sometimes a woman has a darn good reason to not want contact with an ex, and there are other way to see that she doesn't have to see him while insuring he gets his visitation rights.

    As for lying - that isn't just a female behavior.

    Why would you want contact with a liar? I wouldn't.
    Thanks from MeBelle
