It is not the same?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Okay now I have to take offense at what the man himself is saying. In his own words (below) he basically says that verbal and mental abuse is not the same thing as dv. IT IS DV, whether it is accompanied by phsyical abuse or not. Read what the world-reknowned expert on dv, Lundy Bancroft (in Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men), has to say about verbal and mental (psychological) abuse and then read what our hero (NOT!!!!) GS has to say by clicking Petunia....

Glenn's View (note BOLDED text):

[Late note: When I wrote this I assumed the Minister meant this for cases when the woman was the first one to hit or strike the man. A reader pointed out that this is actually not clear--the Minister might have only meant the woman initiated the conflict without hitting/pushing, etc. If it's only words, that's different--verbal or emotional abuse is wrong, too, but it's not the same as domestic violence. Canadian National Post columnist Barbara Kay saw it the same way I did in her new column on the controversy here.--GS]

Lundy's Opinion (paraphrased):

Women who have reported verbal or mental abuse report the wounds from this type of abuse are often worse and much more difficult to heal.


I have just been informed this woman Barbara Kay is a second or third wife, so okay her opinion really means something (like we buy that BS ya know?)....Petunia thinks we should be saying Bull Krap to Barbara Kay.....

I always thought BKay was a second or third- her commentaries-the few I bothered to read- were just too- weird-or plain obnoxious.

She wote a truly sick item, on the anniversary of the murders of the 14 Quebec women in Montreal, in 1989.

She supports criminals and criminal acts.Hateful, vicious and very twisted. She probably doesn't even know it.
