Quote# 90484

[Someone suggests a rule/law to try and drive down the number of men doing murder/suicides on estranged wives. This is one response.]

The 90 day rule proposed rests on at least two flawed assumptions:

murder/suicide is a bad thing and
that anyone (in this case the courts) can interfere with a man’s private affairs for any reason.

Before I proceed with my points, I acknowledge of such the intent of such a rule is to reduce human suffering. Laudable but ineffectual. Trading murder/suicide for a two-step process to drive a man to suicide only helps the woman. Also, imposing such a rule implies that some men should follow it because it is a rule. Nobody — no cop, no judge, no president — should be afforded any legitimacy in interfering with a man’s family affairs. Conceding that to any degree is tantamount to self-imposed slavery.

At this point, loving fathers and devoted husbands are suited up and in the starting lineup of Team Vagina. In essence, a murder/suicide is a BOGO for our side. Why would we want to stop it?

I think this "person" needs to be watched by the police.

Your suicide would be a good thing, true.

These people see war in everything.

Aside from my suspicion that this guy will wind up beside Otis in the Big House before we get our screamingly needed Sexists Say the Darnedest Things, I have little to say about this.

If it's any consolation, at least asshole misogynists like this are not likely to reproduce and pass on their hateful views to any children. If that very unlikely chance does happen, I feel sorry for any woman who finds herself in a relationship with anyone like this.

Your side? There are legitimate "sides" in the "issue" of murder/suicide?

11/4/2012 7:34:21 AM


See, this is where my belief in evolution comforts me; the possibility that your line and all of it's associated dumbfuckery ends with you.

From the male perspective, this is wall banging worth of dumb. Men, by society, are unable to express emotions outside of wives and girlfriends they are comfortable with. They lose that support, and even if they can cope with the loss, they might not be able to cope with further trauma. Providing men emotional support in their time of need and relaxing societal constructions of men bottling emotions is much more effective than... murder/suicides.

Cause it's not really pro women or pro men when BOTH SIDES DIE.It's just fucking sad, heinous, and makes you wonder what you could have done. If you think it's not a bad thing, you clearly have never been able to empathize. I'm sorry, but I have ASBERGERS and I do it better than you!

Mr. Bigglesworth

loving fathers and devoted husbands

Seriously, what is the likelihood that any of the men who resorted to murder/suicides were ever loving and devoted?

If you murder someone and then kill yourself, I say "Good riddance" you will, at least, not be able to do any further harm.

Now a woman gives up her right to live when she marries a man? JFC even Greece and Rome were more advanced.

In a word: evil.

11/4/2012 10:45:19 AM

So, in your own words. If a man murders his relatives, the law has suddenly stop intervening?. Believe me, there is not a single civilisation in the world who has tried to practice it.

"Nobody — no cop, no judge, no president — should be afforded any legitimacy in interfering with a man’s family affairs"

See, now this is why you get bullshit like marital rape not being outlawed in briatin till 1991, this sort of bullshit attitude.

11/4/2012 11:12:39 AM


So, if a woman is being beaten and raped by her husband that's "a man's family affairs" and should be free of any interference? My dog sh*ts ideas better than that.

At the risk of sending you off a bridge: you are a fucking pathetic pile of sputum

Even without reading this I can tell that it's a load of trash not worth listening to, simply because it was written by someone who calls himself "CooterBee".

11/4/2012 12:13:55 PM


Murder, bad! Suicide by you, good. Is all.

11/4/2012 12:17:49 PM


Misogynysts say the darndest things please. Cooter is appalling. As a man I feel insulted Cooter is a fellow male

Murder does not fall under the rubric of "private affairs." The state has a manifest interest in
preventing it.

11/4/2012 2:23:59 PM

Good thing this kind of bullshit isn't worth it in the long run and most people do understand that.

11/4/2012 7:57:37 PM


What a vile piece of shit this guy is. I'm fucking floored.

11/4/2012 8:32:15 PM

Oh, so if a man abuses and murders his wife, nobody should intervene because it's that man's "family affairs."

But if two men or two women who love and respect each other and would never dream of hurting each other want to get married and/or adopt, suddenly their family affairs are everybody's business.

11/4/2012 8:33:18 PM

Of course.

Any domestic relationship a man is involved in is "a man's affairs", because women and chidren are merely the possessions of men. So if you beat your wife or girlfriend, that's not HER affair, it's YOURS, just the same as if you'd decided to bash in the widshield of your car with a baseball bat. It's all just YOUR stuff.

Have I got that right?

Tell it to your brother Daryl and your other brother Daryl, Cooter.
