“So again all women are victims and all men are abusers, what is it with you?” How the hell do you extrapolate that from what I’ve said? I’ve never once said anything remotely like that! But it’s true that a huge perponderance of women have been attacked in some way (by a small percentage of men). Ask your wife. Ask your mother and grandmother about their stories. I dare you. My mom recently told me about some of hers. How her family doctor had stuck his tongue down her throat at age 17. How when she was looking at colleges with her father and the bell boy broke into her room in the middle of the night, and the next day her dad, the sweetest, kindest man in the world asked her what she’d done to provoke him.

I understand you are angry, but in the history of man, few good things resulted from acting. from anger.” So, we are supposed to just sit down and shut up and take it quietly like we have for the past 5 thousand years, is that it? Really? Do you want your daughter to fight a man who attacks her or to not be angry about it and just take it quietly? Make up your mind!

And why do you undersand that I’m angry if you think that I’m exaggerating, acting like a victim, motivated by politics, etc.? You really can’t have it both ways.
