A reader writes in: “NFL Cheerleaders are getting in on the act now” and shares this story:

The “days without an arrest” meter had been creeping toward the all-time record of 34. And with players in camp, the likelihood of an off-field incident was reduced.

But every NFL employee falls under the umbrella, including cheerleaders. According to WPTV.com, a Cardinals cheerleader was arrested last month for assaulting her boyfriend.

The victim had recorded the incident via his phone, and Megan Elizabeth Welter admitted that she did indeed hit and punch him.

She was arrested on July 20 for assault, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage.

Women think they can get away with anything and are over-playing their hand (as one commenter to an earlier post pointed out). Guys are getting wiser and less willing to put up with the abuse, hence taking pictures and getting evidence as technology sometimes helps make their case. Put these two dynamics together and more women may be charged more often than in the past, though probably many are still getting away with assault.

Well, Tina, it's not just one event. Its rare that this kind of event even makes the news, and in this case, it's because of the celebrity of one of those involved. One of the issues is the media and the legal system consider domestic violence against men to be rare, justified and laughable. It's none of the three.

I suppose if you bothered to look, women commit domestic violence as often as men do, and in some cases, more often. Its still a crime, except that it's not punished because of the gender of one of the actors. Worse, as many of us can attest, the legal system adds insult to injury by presuming the man is the perpetrator, and charging the victim. The

Al Sharpton is disgusting because he's willing to run a lynch mob, and he's willing to ignore the overwhelming source of violence to the set of victims he claims to be concerned about, in the interests of a racist agenda. When the facts come out in court, he's not held accountable for the incendiary mob he whipped up, and his nose isn't rubbed into the truth. Sharpton isn't held accountable to the very same standard he demands.

This is *not* identity politics. This is about illustrating those who's identity politics have created a skewed legal system, and an industry who's concerned about less than half of the problem for power and federal money. It's about undoing the damage to 2 generations of men who've had to deal with the outcomes of identity politics.

It's about the rule of law, equality before the law, due process, and destroying the false narrative about men that has persisted my entire adult life.

It's not a loathing of "things female". Its a loathing of people who lie, commit fraud, and demand a double standard and exemptions to responsibility due to their gender.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/08/07/deputies-nm-woman-attacked-boyfriend-with-boot-tire-iron-door-molding-during/

When women attack men, it's "a bizarre attack", but despite hitting him with a boot and a tire iron, stabbing him with a screw driver and attempting to strangle him with window molding she ripped from the car, all in front of her three kids, in a moving car, guess what's missing...

That's right - the words "Domestic Violence". Well, attempted murder isn't in there, either. She's charged with battery, not assault with deadly weapons.

I guess she's not hot enough to rate a booking photo, either.

Nor is "child endangerment", and no mention of the disposition of the kids - did they go back to their father(s)?

"Women think they can get away with anything..."

This is certainly true of a lot of females I know of every age.

I wish I were as confident as you, DADvocate, that thinking is involved but for me, the evidence points to the conclusion that most females instinctively believe they can get away with anything.

For instance, a female who'd caught dead-to-rights by a cop is much more indignant about getting a traffic ticket than any man I've met. And it's not because she believes she's innocent but because "How dare he!"

I agree with Gretz that it's rare to find this in the news. Most often men are arrested during a domestic violence intervention regardless of who was the aggressor. Cell phone video comes in handy, apparently.

Here's a video of a guy who took matters into his own hands, and I don't blame him:

Ok, I have to be honest here...I really don't think that lady is so bad. Yeah, she's immature and somewhat spoiled, but she's not evil. The guy actually looks like a butthead to me. Take her to the lake already if she wants it so bad, for God's sake...it could be fun (or explain why it has to be deferred to a later date). There are many pure evil women out there getting away with virtual murder while our society and laws looks the other way and enables them and ,in fact, unjustly punish men instead. This woman doesn't look like one of them to me, and presenting her as such seems to dilute men's real argument.

Wow. I can't believe you don't thin k her behavior is atrocious. Especially the part where he says how she's posts on Facebook and texts her friends that he won't do what she wants...ugh.

Today it's the lake, tomorrow it'll be something else.

I do agree there are evil women out there. I have encountered more than I can count over the years. The psychopaths are the worst because they're so attractive. I have learned to see right through them but most people can't until it's too late.

This stuff is embarrassing. Trolling for self-pitying men. Hysteria over one domestic violence case snatched out of thin air?

What are we, rationally, supposed to think about this? Look at the statistics? That won't help your claims of males being specially persecuted. Get enraged because of the gender of the players? That is the same methodology used by leftists, or Al Sharpton -- just identity politics played to a different crowd. Ugly.

The deep loathing here for all things female is just sad. I don't see it as being much different from the columnists at Salon who go on and on about their sex lives. It's utterly irrational.

Last I heard Al Sharpton was responsible for several deaths.

Tina, just out of curiosity, what part of the above post do you think exhibits "deep loathing for all things female"?

And if you are interested in statistics about domestic violence, look at this:

Your comment is fine, provided we ignore statistics, law and the social fallout from the point of view you represent.

But sure, call men 'self-pitying' for articulating the contradictions of putatively equalitarian feminism. Other talking points that you should feel free to use are "men should man up" and "losers should take responsibility for their relationship misfortunes" and "not all women are like that."

I suspect that Valerie Grossman once held your perspective as well. Then her son got caught up in the matrix that is our current sexual politics. We used to use the term "mugged liberal" to describe the transformation of gentry liberals who happen to be attacked by the social outcome of their compassion politics. What's interesting about Helen's subject matter is that soon we will be using the term "mugged conservative" to describe their outlook once someone they care about gets chewed up.

Tina Trent: "The deep loathing here for all things female is just sad."

It is only you who seems to think abusive, manipulative, and dishonest behavior is a common trait among women. I'll kindly ask you to stop being so misogynist.

Only Tina Trent thinks "abusive, manipulative, and dishonest behavior is a common trait among women"? Naah. I think so too - thanks Tina for convincing me! The editors of Cosmo, Glamour, People Magazine, and all the other magazines that crowd the supermarket checkout aisle believe it too. And so do all the females who eagerly grab up those magazines. And did I mention the overwhelmingly female audience for TV Hollywood gossip shows, faux courtroom dramas, etc.?
