Admirable effort to deflect blame - but it is nonsense.

When you go to court for a speeding ticket to you whine & sulk about all the speeders who don't get tickets?" Try that in court and see what the response is - and you'll be able to understand our response: ► SO WHAT? ◄

Do we think Michael Vick is a terrible person? Yep (but at least he served time). Does that have anything do with Greg Hardy beating the ** out of his defenseless ex-girlfriend?  ► NO. ◄ (Hopefully you already knew that.)

The fact that you use this intellectually dishonest argument speaks volumes about how you perceive the problem of dating violence (as well as the value you place on value compared to human rights). Unfortunately this is a serious issue which is not being addressed in a responsible manner.

We all have a responsibility to put a stop to this bad behavior and you do nobody any favors by acting as public apologist for this coward who will forever be remembered as the abuser that he is.

International (April 18, 2016) – The numbers are staggering and widely unknown by most parents: one in three 14-year-olds has experienced physical, sexual or psychological abuse within a dating relationship, rising to 44 percent by the time American young people graduate from college.

Jennifer Ann’s Group looking for designers who can raise awareness and provide support to those affected by violence in teenage dating

A non-profit charity set up in memory of a schoolgirl murdered by her abusive ex-boyfriend is encouraging developers to create games exploring the subject.
The annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge has been running since 2008, and this year is offering $11,000 in prizes to designers who use the medium of games to spread the word of support and advice to teenagers at risk of abuse by their partners.

I hope that everybody's weather is as beautiful as it is in Atlanta and as it was while I was in Pittsburgh!

Here's a picture of the finish line for the marathon taken from my hotel while I was there. I really appreciate everybody's work on the Now I Get It! Jam - it was really a wonderful (and encouraging) experience!
