Andrei Raising awareness about domestic violence, Maryland 1931

This man beat his wife in Baltimore eighty years ago, and this is how it was dealt with by the courts.

Ok I am of the generation who was bought up to believe you never ever hit a girl, you give up your seat on the bus to a woman and you open doors to let them past.

And of course in the event of disaster, it was women and children first, the men went down with the ship - the Titanic thing.

Anyway today is white ribbon day, where men wear white ribbons to "raise awareness" about male violence against women - an important issue notwithstanding that males are far more likely to die a violent death than women even in these enlightened times when "equality" is everything.

The origin of this is the École Polytechnique massacre where a young man of Algerian descent marched into a classroom, herded the "men" out and shot the women. The strange thing about this is the "women and children first, men go down with the ship" thing just no longer seems operant.

I'm fairly sure that men of prior generations would not have meekly left those girls to their fate.

You know some of these Marxist bitches almost spit on you if you open the door for them?

The thing these mindlessly indoctrinated slags forget is that there will always be a need for good men to protect them from bad men.

With all the German men killed or still at the front, or too old to mount a defence, nearly every woman in Berlin was raped by invading Russians when they finally entered the city.

"Marxist bitches ... indoctrinated slags"? Yes, they need protection from men like you. I attended Mount Saint Vincent University at the time of the Montreal Massacre. MSVU's female student population was about 90% at that time. Security was definitely beefed up in the weeks following that day ... I remember feeling slightly on guard for a few days. Most Canadian men would never dream someone would do such a thing on Canadian soil. How dare you suggest the men who were in that room bear responsibility for the actions of a terrorist madman.

Angela, the previous comment would not meet the language standard we usually require but since you have responded it must stand.

How dare you suggest the men who were in that room bear responsibility for the actions of a terrorist madman.

Nobody is suggesting any such thing - there is a worrying sign of passivity on display however. There were 50 men in that room who abandoned nine girls - It is easy to be a Monday morning quarter back I know but I was bought up to protect women. It was drummed into me so I find that level of passivity extraordinary.

What do you make of this?
Man too 'frightened' to stop sex assault.

There has been a culture change and I'm not sure it is for the best in a world as wicked as this one can be.

They most certainly bear the responsibility for not trying to do something to stop him.

I was going to post something really awesome and relevent then thought better of it as it would be wasted on filth like sado-bunny and the bed wetter.

Canada's elite special forces, JTF2, accepts women in its ranks. NZ's SAS is still at least a generation behind that. You watch too many Bruce Willis movies and not enough Lucy Liu.

Maybe so but as of yet no woman has actually qualified.

Bruce Willis is an actor
Lucy Lui is an actress

Their business is creating fantasy worlds.

We live in a real one where things are not always as we would like them to be.

You sure about that?

"Their business is creating fantasy worlds."

Art imitates life, and so on ...
