yeah, this is such an obvious reversal. and obviously, the dood who came up with the original saying was some dood who had royally screwed over some woman, and she made him pay in some way. when *he* was under the impression that he could do whatever he wanted to her and to all women, and that there wouldnt be any consequences at all, because who cares about women, and who cares when women get hurt? and surely it was some paltry consequence, like you say. something small, or even if it was large, it was something out of the ordinary. not completely destructive and yet completely normal at the same time, like when men do it.
and YAY! miskas back!
Silly. Cars are WAY more important than women and children, duh! *sighs*
Saw another one in passing today, can’t get past it. Some woman broke up with her bf, so he ran her over with his car. This is every day. I bet if her broken bones blew out his tire she would be counter charged for “vandalism”.
It’s a victory phrase, because men view relationships as games of war which they win. It’s a badge of honour for him to have hurt her, means he was probably screwing around (wot a guy) and getting away with it for some time. He gets to sit at the pub and have the guys buy rounds to toast him, and listen to his bloviating exploits. It all means he’s been baaaad. Only men are rewarded for that.
How CAN I ever forget?! Men remind me to fear them EVERY DAY.
Welcome back, Miska! 🙂 Yay!
Yeah, I agree 100% (I am reading “Woman hating” now). In Germany, nagging is considered to be a major assault! No kidding. Men call nagging wives “Hausdrachen” = a dragon [!] in the man’s house. Oh, the fire she spews burns like hell: “do the laundry for change, go see a doctor, play with the kids, you too should do the dishes etc.” It’s pure torture, as you can see. It ceartainly is worse than to be battered and/or raped, since there is no male “Hausdrachen” in language although there a plenty in reality. A wise idea would be to not let dragons in. “Drachen müssen draußen bleiben” = “Dragons must stay outside”. But I digress.
Thanks to you I have yet again a link I can send to others. Thank you.
