just how much of an ass a person can make themselves. On my facebook.
Where I have to see it.
"I personally don’t understand the big "domestic violence" thing. Yeah, women get hit. And I’m not saying they deserve it… But have you met women these days? I’m surprised they don’t get slapped more often."
^These words just had to flash across my otherwise benign status list. I didn’t have to feel rage tonight. I didn’t have to feel like hitting something (ironically). And the worst part? This was posted by a girl.
Yes, I want to tell this girl. I do see "women these days". I see them outnumber men in universities. I see them in record numbers in congress. I see them not giving a shit if they don’t meet your outdated version of the word “lady”.
Mostly, I see them helping others who need to rise above those who want to beat them down. So maybe you should start understanding this “big domestic violence thing”, and how it affects you, the women you judge around you, and the men who see your words and suddenly think its OK to beat any woman who doesn’t live up to your made-up standard.
