5. Women, more than men, know the right buttons to push to incite violence

 

My ex dared me to hit her after I found out she was cheating on me....
believe me it was tempting, but it wasn't going to be worth it.
While I have a nasty temper, I'm also rational, so I put a hole in the wall instead.
I never hit my ex, ever, ever ever! No matter what, ever! and I never would.

While I agree that violence is N E V E R an acceptable response, I also understand how it can happen.
This idea that women are perpetually innocent in domestic violence is to me, a insulting idea.

If you keep insulting someone who is mad, you're going to get hit most of the time unless that person is zen guy.

What i'd like to see done in these family help centers that advertise on the liberal radio station I listen to, is to teach BOTH sides how to avoid confrontations. Simply telling the man he;s a bad bad person who has to watch EVERYTHING he does isn't going to solve the problem. The other half needs to be taught to watch how far they push the situation.

of course... what do I know? i'm just a bad bad evil man
