A pattern where a man hits, threatens, verbally assaults, intimidates, bullies, confines, pimps or otherwise controls a women by violence is that of a misogynist sadist, and should be considered under the law of justice just as any other violent  crime with special dispensation as a hate crime.

A man who participates by acknowledging said crime without rendering the perpetrator to justice; who promotes alleged crime by seeking to confine the victim to this role under subliminal or overt  threat of loss of Christian or other religious redemption is also guilty.

I’m no lawyer, but that’s what I think. Read what the New Agenda is saying HERE.

By the way, I would say the same for any abusive paring of this nature.

If you need immediate assistance, dial 911.

If you are in an abusive relationship and reading this post, don’t forget THIS.

One PUMA’s thoughts about 2009

I do not have time to dally about whether the word “Feminist” is still correct. Suffice to say that I believe it is. That Governor Palin could call herself one, and Michelle Obama had trouble, shows the issue is not one of a leftist usurpation. Feminists right, left or in the middle, cannot cut off other feminists who support parallel position’s. Though I do not agree with Republican views of abortion, or their view of fiscal management or even their idea of care for the disadvantaged, I do find common ground on misogyny, and caucus fraud, election reform, and media bias.

Likewise, though I was outraged at NARAL’s actions, eventually upset with NOW, and disappointed by Steinem’s references to Palin, they are still democratic sisters. They made their best electoral choice. Most of their views are mine.

The problem, as I see it, is not our agreement; it’s how we got here, to this place, as PUMAs.  To move forward, we must focus; “keep our eyes on the prize”. Then, it’s the methods in how we move forward. (more…)
