Don't expect a man to stand there while you spend an hour calling him every vile and hateful thing you can imagine, then proceed to slap him, spit on him, break lamps over his head and threaten to cut off his genitalia.

    We don't expect a 200 lb man to take that off a 100 lb man without response.... why expect a man to take such extreme abuse, violence and assault from a women simply because she's not as muscular? We should not expect it.

    But back to my original theme... nobody needs to be abusing anybody, domestically, and those who initiate such abuse are the abusers and the ones at fault.
    Let's just say this. I think if you are an enormous guy and some little peon dude approaches you and punches you that you have an obligation to control your strength. You have the right to stop him but you could kill him because of the physical discrepancies. So it is not even necessarily a male vs female thing as much as it is a your weapon is better than mine thing. Is the peon an idiot for challenging someone twice his size? Yes. But still, quite yourself.

    That would piss me off.
    I wonder what other dirty laundry, especially regarding the TM case might come out that they shared together if the animosity between them continues.

    I acknowledge that there are inequities here but any other course allows a man to administer a reaction that could be deadly. It is not an equitable fight. So given the reality of the inequality a man should have a little honor, acknowledge his advantage and leave. It's not like she could physically stop you from leaving.

    I certainly don't challenge the fact that women are typically more emotional creatures. MOST men are not, lets acknowledge reality here, so suck it up collect your **** and move on. Don't stay there and physically challenge someone weaker than you....it sort of implies you have something to prove.

    I wondered the same thing.

    Not at all. The reasons that these disputes start are legion. What I'm talking about is violent acts and hysterical behavior. It's purely anecdotal on my part but the worst issues with drunks, the worst issues with domestics and the worst issues with citations I ever experienced were ALL with women. No matter how kind, considerate and understanding I would try to be these hyenas simply wouldn't quit.

    Again, it isn't all women and men aren't exempt from that kind of behavior but overwhelmingly it was women who refused to back off of a bad situation.

    True, but the opposite is also true, where the lie came first. We don't know which came first in this instance, the truth or the lie.
