get outta here! dangit, there’s a chicken in the house.
deleted tinder. there can’t be anyone cooler than you on there!
it’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. no man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. no means no. […] the one regret i have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. it is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. this whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. what were you wearing? what did you say? what did you do to provoke? that is never the appropriate question.
that’s the problem with putting others first; you’ve taught them you come second.
i hadn’t even heard about the february incident until they released video today + the outrage i feel about how things were handled has me seeing red. actually, every part of this story has me seeing red for numerous reasons: from them not releasing the video, to the ravens organization defending his actions/character, the way the nfl handled the situation in it’s entirety, and his wife’s refusal to press charges or testify against him. and his comment about ‘her pain is my pain, my pain is her pain' comment really tipped the scale for me. while we all have our own opinions on the matter, i’m completely sickened by the fact that this man has gotten away with what he did with nothing more than a slap on the the wrist. i pray they bring the hammer down on him so hard it makes an example for all athletes + humans alike, to let it be known: domestic violence will not be tolerated — regardless of who you are, or what position you might play.
