Pottymouths Strike Again

I would have posted this yesterday, but I didn’t want to ruin anyone’s holiday.

The “Potty-mouth Princess Posse” is back, dropping f-bombs like a rapper dropping names.

Just for laughs, let’s take that “1 in 4” statement as sort of a fact. Even if statiscally there is 1 domestic violence incident for every 4  women in a given area, say 25,000 DV cases in a city with 100,000 women over the age of 18 , that doesn’t mean 25% of the women were victims. It’s often the same small percentage of women who keep going back to the man that hit them.¹ So if repeat occurrences aren’t accounted for, the numbers will look much higher than they are.

“Society barely lifts a finger when men raise their fists,” they claim. Considering the cops arrest men every night for domestic violence, I doubt that. Raising a fist isn’t even necessary… just raising his voice can get a man jailed. Just the accusation alone without proof gets the law on your doorstep.² Not to mention all the charities, shelters, and activist groups dedicated to helping battered women. But society hasn’t done anything.

And when did the “silence” about domestic violence start? It’s not like it hasn’t been covered in an endless stream of books, movies, TV, songs, comics, etc. throughout the decades.

As for that bit at the end – “Baby, you provoked me. I was drunk!” – I hate to say it, but there’s some truth to that. A surprising number of women will provoke a drunk man, angering him until he gets violent. Some women even hit the man first, even when they know it’s gonna get them punched.

 

¹ There’s no mention of that in the video, of course.

² I don’t blame the cops for this. They know it’s crap, but they have to follow the law as written.
