The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 percent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
“Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?”
His reply touched the world:
“I married her soul, her character, and she’s the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams.”
Even though Joshua Marbury’s 1-year-old son was covered in bruises and scars from the babysitter’s alleged beating, the accused abuser is protected by a 2012 Oregon Court of Appeals ruling that discourages prosecutors from filing charges since the tyke can’t talk.
Marbury was furious as the charges were dropped, after baby Jacob had suffered a severe smack that left a black eye, bruises and a stinging palm print on the child’s face.
“It doesn’t make sense that someone can go strike a dog and witnesses see it, that’s enough proof, but if you strike a baby…” Marbury told the News. “I don’t understand why this law is in effect.”
So if a dog was abused, the suspect can be prosecuted…but the abuser of an innocent baby continues to prance around free???
What kind of world do we live in… #Hate it!
A story about a series of mysterious disappearances of young MEN.
Let’s have a town with a dark secret that regularly has guys between 20 and 30 disappear without a trace. Let’s have a detective cart around a briefcase of photos of nice young dudes smiling at the camera.
Let’s have the townsfolk keep the secret by insisting young men don’t go missing, because they are capable and can take care of themselves and probably just chucked it all or ran away with some chick. Let’s have them tell the detective she’s stupid for thinking it’s mysterious in any way.
And let’s have the solution NOT be some crazy woman with a history of sexual frustration and rejection. Let’s have the solution be the usual “they are being sacrificed for a dark occult purpose.” Because I’ve had it up to here with the idea that only blonde chicks can be appropriate sacrifices for dark forces and rituals and stuff.
Let’s have a GUY stretched on an altar, held with leather straps and trying to wriggle free for a change.
Okay, the picture looks like it was taken from a cheap porno. But that’s not the point… Look at the way people react to the subject of men being abused, it’s sickening.
People treat this very serious issue as a joke, and this is why so many men are too ashamed to seek help. Our justice system is so screwed up that men can’t even defend themselves in these types of situations, because they know they could be the one that ends up in trouble. The violence towards men and the stigma needs to STOP!
I was on the early morning bus today, and this idiot guy, probably around 18 or 19, was with his friend, and started taking photos of an obese woman and laughing. The woman, and everyone else on the bus, clearly knew he was making fun of her, but no one did anything. This is totally out of character for me because I’m usually pretty shy, but I got up, walked over to his seat, grabbed the phone from his hand, and deleted the photo. I just deleted it. And then I said, “you should be really disappointed in yourself,” and then I walked back to my seat. Two people applauded me, and the victim thanked me.
