My God, this world gets more and more insane by the mentally challenged, every minute. My first thought was a couple of movies, but the one Farrah Fawcet starred in was a true story. This guy was a lawyer? Well that explains it if he defended and got those off that were guilty and it finally torched his brain.

Evil one, you didn't even get an icon yet? Perhaps they recognize you no matter what name you post in?

It's actually much harder to light a woman on fire than it is to light a man on fire. With men, you at least have a wick.

You may be right but if she was menopausal, I'll bet the slightest spark set her off.

Is he a closet case or what? What decent straight man harms his wife or girlfriend?

Oh, I don't know, about 40% of str8 men do that to one extent or another, particularly if you include women who are not in any ongoing relationship with them.

Nice to see when the homophobia is blatantly unmoored from reality, as ever. But at least there is an inadvertent acknowledgment that being a closet case, specifically, is an unhealthy state of affairs.

You can look up the stats on rape, incest and physical violence against women. I know what it is in the US. It's not just eight or ten hetero men doing it all, Jethro.

Now, Canada is less violent overall on most measures, so that's different.

Sorry, no intent to inflame nor defame. I specifically mentioned closet cases since domestic violence knows no orientation nor ethnicity. There are violent people in every orientation.

Cops hate being called to domestic calls in general. Often, the victims will turn on the police, and the initial attacker joins in. Then everyone's in the hospital, if 1-2 are not in the morgue, and the couple and sometimes their neighbors too end up with felony charges.

In a way, it would be nice to lump spouse-beating in with bad things, even if they aren't true. I could see it if it was lumped in with pedo stuff. The guy ends up not lasting a day in prison. But there is a bad side to artificially getting something hated by lumping it in with other hated things. What if society changes its mind and decides whatever the things are lumped in with are not bad? Like what if you said nose-picking was as bad as adultery in the 1700's? People would want to stone those who pick their noses. But make that same claim now, and it would be dismissed immediately, or they would claim that nose-picking is worse. So a false foundation is no good.

Really, if we didn't have the 8th Amendment, I'd say if someone severely beats or deliberately harms their spouse or minor child/stepchild, or attacks a stranger for no reason, they lose their arms and can never collect disability. But it has to be without a shadow of doubt.

And I hope all is well with you. Take care.

Oh, and those 40% are not "decent" as I specified either.

The endemic violence against women does know a particular sexual orientation, particularly but not only if you think of rape.

And you said "closet cases," not "men," I seem to recall. It was obviously deliberate.

Your ideas about amputation would not fly even in a caliphate.

Thanks for your seeming kind greetings.

I pray for her and loved ones and I don't want to, but I'll pray for him and also pray that his lawyer is not a good one and he does not get off (ever again). I wonder what chances she has to survive both physically and mentally after such a tragic event happening to her. Will either of them burn in hell?

Thank you for your clarification. Yes, I should have said "men," but I still think they are sexually frustrated or something. A lot of closet cases are with women, and being miserable can lead to violence. And you are right, it knows no bounds.

Yes, my wishes were genuine. I love reading a lot of your puns.
