    This reminds me of my dad being beat until he passed out, when he was five. He's sure he must have done something really bad Like being a five year old ?????.
    Beating solves nothing, only makes things worse. When will man ever learn this tidbit of wisdom?

    I know, that's what I told him! I said dad (but I wanted to say honey, because you know that's not a grown man talking), there is nothing you could have done to deserve that. There's nothing a child is capable of doing, to deserve that.

    because beating women and children isn't about solving anything, it's about dominance and insecurity.

    If someone put a gun in my face.
    And i was unarmed
    And let's pretend I *could* beat someone's ass.
    I'd be giving the beating of a lifetime until I knew that I was out of harm and they were no longer a threat.

    If someone is attacking you, and you beat them back, it most certainly is.

    People are acting like if a woman gets hit, she couldn't have POSSIBLY done any damn thing to deserve it. It was abuse! She was beaten! She was defenseless! All because she's female? It's bull****. It's insulting.

    Re: What do you think of the Mel Gibson rants?

    Bitching at someone occasionally isn't abuse - women do it all the time, we're not labeled abusers.

    The occasional tiff - maybe a smack or two - sure, it's not right but it's not wretched, either . .. in poor taste but still not abuse.

    Something only because abuse if it's constant and routine.

    So, if Mel's *always* talking smack to his wife and so on - then the 'abuse' arguments would hold water.
