"Wenn eine Frau einen Mann schlägt, hat das schon seinen Grund"
One of the most misunderstood pieces Paul Elam has ever written at A Voice for Men, the most prominent website in the men’s rights movement, is called If You See Jezebel in the Road, Run the Bitch Down. The Jezebel he is referring to is the website, owned by Gawker Media called Jezebel: Celebrity, Sex, Fashion for Women, Without Airbrushing. In response to an article published in Psychiatry News, which explored men as overlooked victims of domestic violence, Jezebel commenters and editors contributed stories of violently assaulting their partners, often with a disturbing sense of glee and remorseless.
Writer Tracie Egan Morrisey “decided to conduct an informal survey of the Jezebels to see who’s gotten violent with their men. After reviewing the answers, let’s just say that it’d be wise to never ever fuck with us”. She goes on to say that one of the editors at Jezebel “went nuts on her guy and began violently shoving him”, a different editor “heard her boyfriend flirting on the phone with another girl, so she slapped the phone out of his hands and hit him in the face and neck… “partially open handed.”
Mysteriously, another editor “slapped a guy when ‘he told me he thought he had breast cancer.” Personally, I cannot fathom why you would slap someone for thinking they might have cancer, or perhaps Jezebel editors do not realize men can also get breast cancer? At any rate, the editors collectively declared “Okay, that one made us laugh really hard.”
