Batterers 101: Another look at the power and control wheel

We are nearing the end of another year. There have been some victories for battered moms and their children. There have also been many more moms forced into this strange twilight existence known as non-custodial mommy. We made progress and we have been shoved down. I thought now would be a good time to point out that the holidays are the worst time for the victims, especially those victims of the father's rights crowd and their leaders, followers, and assorted cult gang members.

So we have here a lesson in Battering 101. We turn to the Power and Control wheel and focus on two of the wedges. The first is the using "Using Coercion and Threats" wedge and the second is the "Using Isolation" wedge. You may ask why I am going over this with you gentle reader. Many of you know the tactics, it is simply amazing it is not more apparent to others.

Now to connect the dots for you.

I was sent this image (as far as I know it is unaltered and you can check this information by dates and times if you feel so inclined. We have a well-known woman hater, father's rights advocates stating this:

Removing "friends" who associate with and promote a gender-biased (man-hating) unbalanced (disturbed) mothers rights advocate. The rest of us know that this has nothing to do with gender. CD, your hatred is counter-productive to real reform. But thanks for showing your true colors.

and directly below it, this:

I'll give people until Jan. 1 to disassociate from her before I cut them. This is warning #1.

Okay so first we have an "advocate" for "equality" and presumably peace telling people that they MUST remove 'CD' or they will be removed from her friends list. Now to me (forgive me if I am wrong) sounds a lot like isolation to me. IE: You either do not be friends with this person and only with people I deem to be okay, or I will take you off my friends list. So she is now isolating the people on her friends list from being friends with the mysterious 'CD' or they will no longer be allowed the privilege of being her friend.

Can we say COERCION/THREATS and ISOLATION? I wonder if we were to look back at many of the nasty things being said by this "advocate" whether we would indeed find more similarities to the Power and Control wheel? Does she engage in any other activities like this destined to make the P/C list?

Readers your call. Send me pics like this one below and what wedge of the wheel you think she is violating? I can think of another one just from this posting on Facebook alone, but I have had my fun tonight. YOUR TURN!!!!

His New Year's present from me.


Second Ode to Glenn Sacks.

(You can find the first one here: )

I want to know who is it?
Please help me to decide!
Pajamas peeking underneath
His suit that is too tight.

He makes it look like he's a man...
But stop - no way it's true!
He looks more like some kind of blob;
"Eyes" jump like kangaroo.

But maybe he tries play like man?
No way! - His rule's - to cheat.
He does not work, and neither can,
Sends wife to bring his feed.

Destroyed his son, his daughter too;
Controlling freak - no less.
His son - by "ignorance voodoo",
His daughter - by incest.

But how one would ask, eyes blinking...
"This blob had kids conceived?
He hates the women to his pinky..."
His wife was well deceived!!!

He went to school - all hated him;
He had a grunge in fact!
He went to bathroom, raised his leg,
And made a pinky pact.

It would involve to honor freaks,
Just like himself - Flop-Men.
To fight for them and kiss their cheeks,
And build Abuser's Den.

He did succeed, so far. Of course
Until his kids grow up.
Then they would understand his hate;
On him - they'll throw up.

And even, covered in puke...
This mass - what is it- please?
I see it!!! After second look...
Abuser's greatest tease!

I wish his butt was made as "free"
By order from the Court!
And rapists, with their handsome glee
Could use it, overboard.

I wish that he got women’s plight,
The ones, he claims that lie.
I wish he'd raped all day, all night,
By "falsely accused guy".

And still - in puke and raped- what's that?
Triangular SomeWhat...
Come on! Give in! Just tell me, friend,
Or I would think- it's BOT!

Look! Happy rapist's voice, lost breath,
Orgasm still in his eyes,
He says he loves This Thing to death,
Glenn Sacks with awesome lies!
