Sometimes... a stinging cheek is what it takes for a woman to realize she has gone to far.

Just sayin'

You gotta wonder how they get the idea that atheists are amoral violent monsters when they say shit like this.

Please, please be a poe.

A woman should NEVER be hit under any circumstances. EVER.

And how did you end up in your current habitation, eh, preachinjail?

@ Mortician.

If she attacks me, I'll overcome my ingrained politeness and defend myself.

But then again, I'd do the same for anyone.

Because that's equality. Singling out that you'd never ever hit a woman suggests that you'd be OK with hitting a guy at some point.

Yes, it's wrong to make unprovoked attacks against women, it's wrong to do it to men too.

And you'd be surprised how many times men are on the receiving end of domestic violence.

What does it take for you to realize it?

5/28/2009 9:28:16 AM


I just lost a whole lot of respect for Sean Connery.

5/28/2009 9:30:27 AM


Agree with speccy4i, if a woman deserves to be hit, she will be, just like a man. Equality, you don't get a free pass to treat people like shit just because you are a woman.

5/28/2009 9:31:06 AM


I agree with speccy4i.

Some women are incredibly violent, what if she was harming a child, would you go to defend it?

(I'm a woman and I believe in self defense for anyone against anyone about to hurt you).

But yeah as for domestic violence against ANYBODY that is sick. I don't get these fundies, and I feel sorry for anyone (in this case it is a LOT more likely to be a man hitting a woman for biblical reasons) stuck in the receiving end of this kind of situation.

To "preachinjail" (interesting name), hitting someone like that IS going too far yourself!

5/28/2009 9:31:28 AM

I hope hes joking. Sean Connery that is, I know preachinjail is not.
Also even if you are hit I don't think you should retaliate, but thats just me. Unless your life is in danger.

On the bright side, a girl with a stinging cheek who's just been slapped by this individual can be safe in the knowledge that she's not as dumb. The pain will eventually reside, but this moron will be stupid for the rest of his life.

Sometimes... a severed penis is what it takes for a man to realize he's gone too far.
Just sayin'

(just trying the other perspective)

I always figured Connery for a misogynist.

5/28/2009 9:41:43 AM

Sean Connery is a man's man. He'll punch who he wants man or woman. Forever.

5/28/2009 9:42:33 AM

Sean Connery ftw!!

5/28/2009 9:47:15 AM


Sometimes a jail sentence is what it takes for an a**hole to realize he has gone too far.

5/28/2009 9:50:16 AM


Hehe... In my relationship, it's me (male, if you were wondering) who gets the spankings when I get out of line.

5/28/2009 9:50:24 AM

if someone is being an asshole, man or woman, that person deserves to get beat

5/28/2009 9:53:36 AM


Sean Connery did NOT say this bit about the stinging cheek. I remember hearing years ago that he had said something to the effect of hitting a woman isn't the worst thing you can do to her. Taken in context, he was referring to EMOTIONAL AND VERBAL ABUSE actually being more devastating than a physical blow. And as someone who has been subject to emotional abuse her entire life as well as occasional physical abuse, I tend to agree.

Attack this idiot fundie, please, but realize he is using Connery's words out of context to promote his own agenda.

David B.

Men are, on average, bigger and stronger than women, and are able to hit much, much harder. They also have their sensitive and vulnerable gonads on the outside.

Nature has a way of redressing the balance. Just saying...

Hey! OJ! How's it goin' in the slams, bro?

5/28/2009 10:16:15 AM


I'm not so sure about the whole "under no circumstances" part about hitting back. Man or Woman, if someone comes at me with fists flying, I will do what I can to defend myself. However, I will never, EVER strike someone unprovoked.

5/28/2009 10:17:48 AM


Hi, my father is a lifetime member of the NRA, I know how to shoot a gun.

I did my time in an abusive relationship, NEVER AGAIN. Would you like to meet my friend? His name is SiG.

5/28/2009 10:21:37 AM


Evo, it's true sean connery didn't say that, preachinjail was making this comment in responce to a video where connery said he believed it's okay to slap a woman in some circumstances

So this is the "Fighting Fumdemantalist Forum" which would be the FFF.
Obviously, they're doing a poor job of distinguishing themselves from the KKK.
