I just said that exact same thing out loud when I saw this photo.
re: Farrah Abraham Just Made Ted Nugent Look Like A Genius (72 comments)
Wow. I think she just unified the country in a solid agreement about how ignorant she must be. So maybe this is like the plot of ‘The Watchmen’ where she’s secretly a benevolent supergenius and only pretends to be a dumb slut in order to save humankind from itself. (That happened in The Watchmen too, right?)
re: Ted Nugent Wrote About The George Zimmerman Verdict. Oh God Yes. (193 comments)
More one-sided character attacks on TM but none on GZ.
Let’s round out the scorecard, shall we?
GZ had a history of domestic violence, a restraining order, assault charge on a officer, reports of excessive violence as a bouncer, etc. And he was an *adult.* Many Zimm supporters like yourself always fail to mention ANY of that while they list every negative element of TM’s checkered past..as a child. Why do you suppose that is? Why would an adult, armed killer with an arguably WORSE criminal and personal history of violence than the victim be given more of a pass than the unarmed, teenaged deceased victim?? (Kids are expected to make some mistakes, btw. Adults are not. Our entire justice system is structured around that premise. But all that is apparently completely ignored here.)
Hey, I’d LOVE to believe that race isn’t playing a factor in comments like that, but that kind of blatantly lopsided and counter-intuitive thinking makes it really difficult to believe there’s any other rational explanation for it.

This is still a deflection, IMO. I’m sure with some effort someone can find lots of selected cases where women have “gamed the system” to their advantage, but I’m just as sure that *overwhelming* majority of the time, women ARE the actual victims in domestic violence cases. That’s really the elephant in the room.
Making fraud seem like the big concern seems like a case of misplaced priorities. Nevertheless, it’s easily corrected: Once men stop committing the actual abuses, the large number of actual cases will become negligible. Then the number of fraudulent cases will evaporate too, because they’ll no longer be credible.
