Men challenge 'bible' of violence against womenA Toronto inquest will question the validity of a standard reference book.Dave BrownThe Ottawa Citizen

Excerpt:"Not quite as long as the Bible, it is the standard reference book for a growing industry that claims violence against women is a hidden epidemic seen only by selected front-line workers, many of whom have connections to women's shelters, rape crisis centres and hundreds of other women's organizations whose government funding relies on persuading society that domestic violence is not an isolated phenomenon, but a widespread pathology."Read Part 1 of the 5-part series here:Source

Burying the ghosts of a violent pastHusband in wheelchair became focus of wife's rageDave BrownThe Ottawa Citizen

Excerpt:" 'If women are able to do all the good things that men can do in professions like medicine and law and in all other fields, then why is it that we, as a society, deny that women can do the bad too? It is my fondest hope that someday there will be true equality in our society and that domestic violence will be seen not as a gender issue but as a societal one that will end when we work together to stop it.'

'I learned it's a system that doesn't listen'Wife still terrified by threats from family violence specialistsDave BrownThe Ottawa Citizen

Excerpt:"From the start, she says, the advice from support workers connected to Domestic Violence Court was that she should break up her marriage. She should not risk living with a violent man. Her attempts to defend her husband were met with we-understand-and-we-know-better attitudes: she was afraid of him and was trying to protect him so he wouldn't be angry. When it became clear she had no intention of separating from her husband, the threats from domestic violence specialists connected to the court moved to a new level that still terrifies her."Read Part 3 of the 5-part series here:Source

Turning domestic violence into a religionInquest an epic social debateDave BrownThe Ottawa Citizen

Excerpt:"The average woman is assaulted 35 times before she seeks help, says Mr. Jaffe. He backed up some of his claims by referring to his own published works. He has written eight books on the subject. Lawyer Walter Fox pointed out that reliable social-science conclusions have first to pass a peer-review process. Mr. Jaffe admitted much of his work has not been through that process."Read Part 4 of the 5-part series here:Source

Cult of the domestic-violence industryWhere are the great numbers of victims we hear about?Dave BrownThe Ottawa Citizen

Excerpt:"There is in every one of us a trigger that fires when we think there's even a remote chance a woman is being battered by a man. By playing to that trigger the violence-against-women movement continues to grow and takes on the characteristics of a cult. For example, women entering a shelter must sign a secrecy agreement that they will not divulge what they see and hear inside."Read Part 5 of the 5-part series here:Source

Are you aware of the fact that SA21 thinks Daniel Tosh is NOT funny? He especially thought this special sucked and get this, thinks Dane Cook is funnier. I personally like Tosh and think he is very enjoyable.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

guapy knows how i feel about toshbag, but like a persistent homo, he's trying to turn me.and saying dane cook is funnier than toshbag is like saying one piece of shit tastes better than two pieces of shit.

I would say that he isn't very funny, or that he's rarely funny, but not that he just plain isn't funny. I give him funny points just for how good he is at working an audience, even if the material isn't particularly hilarious.
You got a date Wednesday, baby!
