Self-Defense

December 1, 2008

I hate to kick off the December montage of entries with something so disgusting, in a time of year that is supposed to be happy and joyful, but, well, there are a lot of things I hate. This is pretty high up on the list.

Girl Punched Dad During Spanking

CRESTVIEW, Fla. — A 16-year-old Florida girl who hit her father when he tried to spank her has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.

An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office report said the father told a deputy that he was attempting to spank the girl when she turned around and struck him in the face with her fist.

The report said she tried to hit him several more times before leaving with friends.

Both father and daughter said the argument started over an item that had been broken. She acknowledged that when he went to spank her, she punched him, the report said.

….

Do I even need to point out everything that is very WRONG with this scenario?

I feel like it all should be very obvious. And the fact that very many people do not see everything that is wrong here is a major shot at any semblance of faith in humanity. It’s like you’re trying to explain it to someone, something that should be as clear as the sky being blue, water being wet, and two plus two being four. You finally just roll your eyes and say “come on, are you really THAT stupid?!”

Are people SO afraid of ever questioning the almighty power and authority of parents, that when it comes time for their children to defend themselves from them (a far too common time), it is they, the children, who are considered the criminals? It’s probably safe to assume the father is a lot larger than the girl, so she was faced with a larger, menacing being coming at her, so she reacted by fighting back, a reaction that is a natural instinct of self-preservation that all normal humans have, and somehow she’s the one who got arrested and sent to jail. Are you fucking KIDDING ME?!?!

I applaud this girl for fighting back. I echo what Galen said about this: all kids should fight back when their idiot parents resort to cruel barbaric practices against them, the physically weaker innocent people their only-sometimes-trustworthy procreators are foolishly given ultimate unquestioned power over. I don’t care what the stupid law or the mindless sadistic pro-corporal punishment morons or the ultra anti-teen whiners out there say, this girl did the right thing by defending herself and there is absolutely NO justification for her even having to live in a house where she is under the threat of physical abuse, NONE!

You people wonder why there are so many women out there who stay with abusive husbands and believe their abuse is a form of love? Here’s your answer. This is how they were living ten years ago! You want to save the battered wives? Maybe stop excusing the parents of the battered daughters so the girls learn that is no way to be treated so they don’t grow up to become the battered wives who stay with their asshole abusive husbands. Ever thought of that, geniuses?

And, of course, the other vomit-inducing thing about this story. The girl is 16. Unless she’s a majorly late bloomer, she’s a physically mature young woman who was just defending herself from being unconsentually touched on an underwear covered part of her body by a much older man. Shit, she shouldn’t have just punched him. She should have pepper sprayed him until he collapsed in agony and stomped on a few sensitive vital organs. That’s what any woman would do when a man comes at her that way. But, no, because he’s her father and she’s not that magical age of 18 yet, instead somehow she, the smaller one and the real victim here, is considered the dangerous criminal while the menacing insane pervert older man is considered the poor little victim. Again… are you fucking KIDDING ME?!?!?!

Well, with the way society is, all I can really do about this is rant about it here and devoutly hope this man someday soon drowns slowly in sulfuric acid after having his intestines mauled by rats.

  1. What a twisted world we live in. The victim in this situation was arrested for defending herself while her out of control father is vindicated. 🙁
