"... used a picture of a brutalized woman to illustrate a post about domestic violence."
Well damn, how stupid of me. I should have used a picture of a frolicking puppy! That would draw man boobs readers in droves!
"... her basic argument – that feminism perpetuates domestic violence for profit – is even more insidiously victim-blaming."
Uh-huh. Okaaaaaay. I specifically blame feminist policies for perpetuating DV, and that means I blame DV victims. I'm afraid I'll need some LSD to make that connection. Can someone help me out here? Anyone? Bueller?
"Every single one of these people would happily give up their job if domestic violence went away.
Um, Yah. I'm not kidding; David Futrelle, who presumably lives on this planet, said that.
"... domestic violence has fallen considerably since the early 1990s."
1. That statement contradicts what, some claim I didn't make, that maybe DV has increased?
2. I wonder how much DV would have decreased since the early 1990s if millions of children had been removed from their violent mothers. Just a thought.
"...“about 4 in 5 victims of intimate partner violence were female.” Numerous other studies using different methodologies also find that women make up the majority of victims. The only studies that find similar rates of abuse – which are also, not coincidentally, the only ones that MRAs like to cite – are based on problematic methodologies that end up essentially equating mild and severe violence, pretending that a slap on the face is basically the same as a severe beating when it comes to determining which gender is responsible for the most abuse."
David doesn't "cite" the "problematic" nature of those methodologies, but anybody want to take bets that those are the studies not funded by feminists?
"Suz, naturally, presents no evidence for any of this"
"Violent fathers are not exactly a “stabilizing” influence on the home."
And we all know that fathers are men! And men are prone to violence! So naturally when I say "fathers," I mean violent men, right? (I actually followed that line of reasoning without the use of illicit drugs. That's kind of scary.) David won't be discussing violent mothers of course, because they're the victims - 742% of the time.
"And feminism is responsible for this how?"
And I said feminism is responsible for all of the variables causing DV where? (Sorry, I know that one wasn't really worthy of mention, but I'm guessing by the end of the night, one of his
"Citation fucking needed."
The battle cry of every troll.
Part 2: The Booblets
(I know. This is the part you were waiting for.)
Thus far there are only a few, but hoo-boy! Go check 'em out but try not to trip on the hamsters:
"Toss in a few more variables like substance abuse, a string of violent boyfriends, and a bit of poverty, and this process is guaranteed to produce future domestic abusers.
"Gender neutral except for the name" Holy fuck.
