No matter how horrendous, dark, and pure evil our past experiences might have been - there is one thing those experiences can never take away from you. It reminds me of this quote - ““I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”

I just wanted to join this community briefly because I'm actually really curious what you all have to say about this. I'm a firm believer that nowadays there's tons of sexism against both women and men, just different kinds of sexism.
One thing I think should be frowned upon a lot more than man fights or lady "cat" fights is what I call "intergender" violence (men hitting women, women hitting men). I think because men generally have such an unfair physical advantage over women, they should do what they can to not strike a woman. I also think because men are expected not to strike women, then likewise, women should be expected not to strike men, and if they do strike men, they should expect retaliation, instead of acting like victims. What's a man to do??? Women actually strike men more nowadays in the USA than vice versa. When men strike women, of course its wrong, but when women strike men, people are often indifferent, or its even seen as funny or cute. The thing is, the fact that the man has the physical advantage doesn't always speak for the psychological dynamics of the relationship. Depending on the specific man and woman, the man can feel very controlled, or sometimes even terrorized by the woman. Personally, if I fell in love with a woman, and we had a relationship, then one day she started getting physically abusive toward me, I think I'd have every right to strike back, but I don't think I would or could to a woman I'm in love with, so I'd be a victim, and what support would I get from peers or law enforcement? Think about it. I think the law should punish "intergender" violence, including women beating men, more than typical street fights and what not.

When we like someone, we tend to be more willing to adjust our values, our standards, our schedules, and our perspectives in order to to see how the relationship will evolve. I’ve learned many things from being in relationships with the wrong people - and this reminds me of two specifically…

1. The right people will never expect you to sacrifice your well-being for the relationship. In fact, the opposite will be true - they will not only support your well-being but they will help facilitate you being true to yourself and your standards.
2. we give discounts on the front-end we will most certainly pay tenfold on the backend.

The people you want to keep around are the ones that will gladly pay full price.

Mississippi state Rep. Andy Gipson, a Republican who is also a Baptist preacher, has rejected a bill that would have made domestic violence legal grounds for divorce in the nation's most religious state — which also has one of the highest divorce rates.
