Title: Abcnews Tv Report Says Women Hit More Than Men In Relationships
Post by: VeteransAbroad on January 12, 2007, 09:47:46 AM
This is a shocker. Not the news that women hit men violently more in relationships than visa versa...but that ABC News television admits this and conducts the following experiment.

They had an actor and actress pose as a couple where the woman was beating on the man calling him a no-good creep of a husband...and 159 out of 163 passersby, including a policeman, did nothing! Take a look at this link:

I mean seriously, how many times have any men here ever hit a woman?

I think the number for me must be zero. Let me think. Yes zero.

Now how many times have I been hit by a woman?

Too many times to count, mostly done because the woman knows the man can take it...let me take just a small example from before October...I was in Helsinki getting some things while my girlfriend guarded our bags at the train station which was crowded with thousands of people. When I came back through a door she was not looking at, I went up to her and said Hi Sweetie in Russian. But I was too close to her and surprised her so she whirled and punched me in the gut knowing it was me but maybe still on reflexes of some sort. I doubled over with pain and tons of people stopped to watch, probably not so much to make sure that I was OK but to make sure that she was OK with the man in her presence. :-)

What happened was totally natural and I don't blame her or Russian society or Finnish society.

But the lesson to get from this is that OF COURSE women hit male partners more than male partners hit women.

That is not a theory. It would be ridiculous to debate it.
