"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.
yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy
Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.
quietly scoring out all previous comments because they’re all apparently made by either anti-sj’s/anti-feminists or generally ignorant people
let’s put it this way: this is one of many reasons why we need feminism. We’ll state first that statistically, women are beaten more often than men. But let’s continue. Women are generally considered frailer, weaker, more helpless sex, incapable of doing any sort of damage to a person that isn’t emotional. Meanwhile, men are generally considered dominant in a relationship. If anyone’s to do the beating, it’s expected to be them. It’s even just another masculine thing to do.
when we apply these expectations to a relationship where a woman is domestically assaulting a man, the man isn’t taken seriously because the gender roles we enforce on him dictate that “he should have been able to defend himself”, “he’s a sissy”, “she can’t have hurt him that much” and so on. And then the woman is too often let off because “she can’t have done any real damage”, “female on male violence isn’t serious”, “women can’t be dangerous” and etc.
we need feminism so that all genders can be equal, and equality means that when a man beats a woman, that man should be brought to justice, and vice versa. After 18 assaults, Yasmin Thomas should have been convicted with a significantly harsher sentence and that’s all there really is to it.
‘Any offence at all will be sent back to this court and you will go straight down those steps to prison for at least 12 months.’
SHE SHOULD BE GOING TO PRISON NOW. NOT IF SHE DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. jesus fucking christ.
