No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html
"But womenz are so oppressed! "
You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.
Yup, much in the same way Rihanna probably instigated shit with Chris Brown.
You fucking victim-blaming idiot.
"Men always instigate women; because are magical and only capable of good violence.”
"But women are so oppressed!"
How does one instance of one woman attacking a man negate the overall trend that it is the vast majority of the time, men doing the attacking?
Imagine you live in the South during 1840 and you meet a free slave therefore slavery must be over!!!1
Fact bomb time!
- "One instance"? Guess again, hon. People like you are part of the problem by thinking that ANY instance of women taking part in violent crime is "one instance". Women in general have gotten away with some pretty goddamn horrifying shit simply because of their gender. When it comes to the murder of spouses, 41% of the killers are women. More women commit child abuse than men. Children are more likely to be killed by their mothers than their fathers. Even in domestic violence, at least 40% of the victims are MEN, with WOMEN AS THE ABUSERS. Also, recent reports from both Harvard and the CDC have discovered that up to 40% of all rape is carried out by women.
And guess what, sunshine? Instances of assault of women by men also does not negate the fact that the majority of men on this planet will never hurt another person in their entire lifetime.
- Acts of violence are not a product of our culture - they are a product of a lack of function in the brain, particularly the pre-frontal cortex. You could bombard a man with violent imagery of rape and murder, but mere image and suggestion is not going to disable the functioning of the pre-frontal cortex. This area of the brain is responsible for controlling our impulses. For most human beings, this keeps us from acting out against what we’ve learned to be the appropriate behavior in our society. Time and again, science has shown us that the brains of violent criminals are not the same as those of the average person.

But hey - keep thinking that violence is only ever gender-based. That’s TOTALLY going to help with that whole “equality” thing.
