  1. Maggie Mae

    Maid (Netflix Original)

    Has anyone else watched this? I watched it when it came out and i'm still thinking about it. It's so hard to watch but so good.
  2. A fucking loser in Australia was upset that he was being called away from his video game so he took it out on his partner. Caution: There's a video at the link that shows the episode. I hope this fuckstick gets the fucking book thrown at him.
  3. Another shooting And I found out one of the victims was a very distant relative of mine. Fuck the NRA.
  4. Ask a Manager is an advice blog for work-related issues. There was a letter today from a manager who promoted a female employee to a position that requires occasional travel. Suddenly, the employee said that she can't travel for work because her religion requires her to obey her husband, and her husband doesn't want her to travel. In what I am sure is just a coincidence, her husband also recently decided that she shouldn't "have to" drive, so he now drops her off and picks her up from work every day, which is causing many problems. http://www.askamanager.org/2017/03/my-employee-is-refusing-to-travel-because-her-husband-said-she-cant.html
  5. "In the past three years, alarm bells have begun to ring about the role religion may play in fostering, or concealing abuse. There have been two substantial inquiries into domestic violence in Australia in recent years. Both have identified religion as a significant, under-reported problem." http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-07-18/domestic-violence-church-submit-to-husbands/8652028?WT IMO very interesting article about how churches fail abused women and how toxic and dangerous the doctrine of "male headship" is.
  6. The head of a DeVos founded astroturf group has resigned; washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2017/03/07/head-of-devos-founded-group-resigns-after-he-said-he-wanted-to-shake-an-official-like-i-like-to-shake-my-wife/ It goes on to say how he told the committee how he wanted to shake Ms. Baker like he does his wife. Hey Naeyaert (you don't deserve either a Dear or Mr.), Fornicate you! That is all.
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/25/russian-mps-bill-reducing-punishment-domestic-violence-rights Russia has decriminalized some forms of domestic violence. From this article: (bolding mine) This puts the most vulnerable members of society at risk. If you, say as a child, a spouse or an elderly relative, get battered once and no one helps you- how likely are you to call for help a second time? Can you? What are the chances that an abuser will take away your means to call for help, after you've done it once? Personally, I don't get why some people don't take domestic violence seriously. If I attacked a stranger, I'd be looking at criminal charges. Why would it be any different if I attacked family members? A friend claimed that there's a saying in Russia that "if he beats you, he loves you" - I disagree with that sentiment. Strongly!
  8. I don't often post these days but wondered if any UK FJers (or indeed FJers from anywhere) listen to The Archers? For anyone not in the know this is a long running daily radio 'soap' based in a farming community. At the moment there is an extremely upsetting and tense storyline about a controlling and abusive marriage, which I am finding increasingly difficult to listen to. Anyone else struggling?
  9. I know these articles are old, but I don't remember them being discussed here. Homeschoolers Anonymous has two articles about James Dobson and Michael Farris and their adivece to abused wives. These are horrifying and both these men were fairly popular in the churches I was raised in. Even the SBC that wasn't on board with IBLP thought these guys were great. Firs up Dobson(who also once beat his dog): In his book "Love must be tough" he says that he once had a lady come to him for advice because her husband has a temper that is terrifying and he beats her with his fists. She was tired of being beaten and having to stay home because she is covered in bruises. He told her that divorce wasn't the answer and that she doesn't need to "kill" her marriage. His advice was for when her husband demanded she do something, she should refuse and let him go into a rage. This supposedly will help him realize he has problems and needs some help. I'm not sure why he thinks this would help since beating her didn't make him stop to think that he might have some anger issues. He then adds this clarification to his advice on women dealing with abusive husbands: She was just asking for it. It wasn't the man's fault. She deserved it. She did it to herself. Poor, poor man who just HAD to beat up his wife. Dobson knew that she just wanted to be beat up. That is why you can't trust women when they say men are abusive. Even if you see the bruises. The men might be the real victims here. http://homeschoolersanonymous.org/2015/05/06/james-dobson-on-domestic-violence-women-deliberately-bait-their-husbands/ And now Michael Farris. He wrote a book for men about raising daughters. The message is that little girls need to learn early to obey men without question. He spanked his daughters till they were teens. He has a chapter about helping your daughters choose friends(spoiler! good friends minimize abuse) and he tells the story of a case he was working on where a couple was going through divorce and the man was accused of abusing the wife. Take a big guess whose side he is on. As bad as the minimizing abuse it, this is where it gets truly horrifying. I'm assuming she didn't leave the two year old alone or he would have mentioned it. But yes, he is blaming the death of her child on her leaving an abusive spouse. http://homeschoolersanonymous.org/2014/12/19/michael-farris-on-domestic-abuse-far-cry-from-the-battered-woman-syndrome/
  10. Imagine that mens rights always seem mean hate on woman. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-mens-law-firm-arrest-20151228-story.html?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link

    Ronda Rousey emasculates Floyd Mayweather

    Floyd Mayweather, champion boxer and serial batterer of women, is called out on live television, at the ESPY awards, by Ronda Rousey, winner of 'Best Fighter of the Year' award. "I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," Rousey said. "I'd like to see you pretend to know who I am now." Red-carpet interview with Ronda Rousey; http://www.tmz.com/2015/07/15/ronda-rou ... ence-shot/ If you do not know who Floyd Mayweather is, 'dickipedia' is a great place to start; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/0 ... 85034.html His history of domestic violence goes back 14 years. Yet, he pulled in a $220,000,000. purse for his last fight, alone. But, who won 'Fighter of the Year' at the ESPY awards?! UFC fighter, Ronda Rousey!! Never mind that I do not care for UFC. I feel very proud for her, and her landmark stance against Floyd. In previous interviews, she has had this to say about 'Five-Time Woman-beater of the Year' Floyd Mayweather; "I would never say that I can't beat anyone," Rousey said. "I don't think me and him would ever fight unless we ended up dating." But, why is it that our society chooses to, essentially, overlook Floyd Mayweather's history of domestic-violence? Why are we okay with promoting him, and rewarding him with record payouts?! "He makes millions throwing punches. He earns his living using his fists. The fact that he uses these same fists to beat women does not seem to matter to CBS (which owns Showtime), the MGM Grand, the Las Vegas gaming industry or the sponsors associated with Saturday's fight." http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/01/opinions/ ... her-fight/ (After reading a recent announcement, it is my understanding these links are not in need of breaking. Please, correct me if i'm wrong.)
  12. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mu ... al-5164409 Despite the fact he slashed her throat and she's lucky to be alive. He didn't care if she lived or died. Surely someone so violent should automatically forfeit his parental rights? If this "father" really cared about his sons, he wouldn't have traumatised by them by nearly murdering their mum. And you'd think the judge would care about the kids' safety, even if he doesn't give a shit about Natalie! I can only assume he's a vile wife beater himself and I hope he gets sacked. Personally, I'd do a 10 year stretch at Her Majesty's Pleasure rather than write to this bastard. I hope this brave lady is able to get this decision overturned by someone with a bit more common sense and compassion.
  13. http://thinkprogress.org/health/2014/10 ... -violence/ A misogynist group is attempting to co-opt a well-known international campaign against domestic violence, setting up a fake website intended to confuse visitors who may be trying to donate to the cause. The new website is attempting to divert supporters looking for the White Ribbon Campaign, a nonprofit group in Canada that engages men in the effort to stop intimate partner violence. It was founded in 1989 in response to the “Montreal Massacre,†in which a 25-year-old gunman shouted “You’re all a bunch of feminists, and I hate feminists!†before opening fire and killing 14 female students. Since then, the White Ribbon movement has spread to other countries like Scotland and Australia. It also has a relatively popular Facebook page. The real sites have international URLs, like www.whiteribbon.ca. The fake campaign, however, is hosted on www.whiteribbon.org — something that may trick Americans into thinking it’s the United States’ official chapter. There’s a fake Facebook account to go along with it. The fake site urges people to be wary of “false White Ribbon initiatives†dedicated to addressing “violence against women,†telling them to donate to its group instead. “There are numerous attempts by other entities to corrupt the message of the White Ribbon Initiative by inserting dishonest and sexist messages into this movement,†claims a post on the fake White Ribbon site. “Hopefully this message, and the other content on this website (which is provided to you by the world’s foremost experts on family violence), will help you see through the corruption and dishonesty being furthered by other programs.†But the dishonesty is actually being furthered by www.whiteribbon.org itself. As reported by We Hunted The Mammoth, a blog dedicated to tracking anti-feminist online groups, the fake site was set up by A Voice For Men — an infamously misogynist forum dedicated to “men’s rights activists.†Indeed, when you click on the “One-Time Paypal Donation†button on the fake White Ribbon site, it leads to a donation page for A Voice For Men. The men’s rights movement believes that feminism harms men, and is primarily fueled by resentment over the women’s rights movement. That’s why MRAs take issue with the real White Ribbon Campaign, which seeks to challenge “harmful ideas of manhood that lead to violence against women.†A Voice For Men’s fake site makes it clear that this framing is offensive to them, writing that “family violence is a serious problem that knows no gender†and “we cannot address this complicated, critical problem by pointing the finger at one sex as the default perpetrator and at another sex as the default victim.†But the members of A Voice For Men — which has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center — aren’t simply interested in a conversation about how violence affects both men and women. They have a well-documented history of manipulating facts, accusing feminists of encouraging domestic violence to make money, and even making violent threats against women. A Voice For Men’s announcement about the fake site inspired several responses along these lines. We Hunted The Mammoth documented just a few of them. “If I had the power and I could, I would arrest every single white feather wielding coward, strip them of all their female clothing, put them in army greens and send them directly to the front line to have their heads blown apart by high powered bullets or shrapnel. Or they can watch as their female friends get their bodies blown into many parts by a bomb of some sort,†one commentor wrote. Others expressed excitement about diverting funds from the original White Ribbon Campaign. “All money I was going to pledge to the White Ribbon Campaign to stop violence against only women will now be directed to the AVfM campaign to stop violence against women, men, and CHILDREN,†one wrote. In the 25 years since A White Ribbon Campaign was first founded, the issue of misogynistic attitudes fueling violence against women has hardly gone away. Just a few months ago, there was a mass shooting in Santa Barbara that echoed some aspects of the Montreal Massacre — gunman Elliott Rodger, who was active in men’s rights communities, went on a shooting spree against “blonde sluts†as retribution for the women he say rejected him. That tragedy, which killed six people, sparked a national conversation about the everyday violence that women experience. UPDATE The real White Ribbon Campaign has responded with a statement on its website, calling the fake site “vile†and “misguided.†“White Ribbon will continue to stand beside the thousands of women’s organizations around the world who see feminism as an all-encompassing effort to realize equality,†the group’s executive director, Todd Minerson, writes. “Allies and supporters: do not to be fooled by this copycat campaign. We are exploring all of our options, but we will not be engaging with this group in a public screaming match. They can remain a shrill minority.â€
  14. What is wrong with these people? Are the Tea partiers so far gone mentally that they just don't get it or do they not care? http://www.politicususa.com/2014/02/13/ ... ghter.html
