Patriarchs Never Deem Daughters Good Enough

Sheriff’s Office: Man Killed Baby Daughter Because He Wanted Son
Father Beat Girl For Months, Report Says

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — A Winter Haven man was charged with murder, accused of fatally beating his 4-month-old daughter because he wanted a son, authorities said.

Marcos Gomez-Romero, 28, told investigators that he beat Ariana Rodriguez Romero to death because did not want a daughter, according to a Polk County Sheriff’s Office report.

Gomez-Romero told investigators that the beatings had gone on for months, the sheriff’s report stated.

Gomez-Romero was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse.

The girl died on Christmas morning.

If he had not killed her, he would have killed her spirit by emotionally and physically abusing, neglecting, and/or raping her throughout her lifetime. Patriarchs never deem daughters good enough.

    Winter Haven … that is too uncomfortably close. Not just the daughter’s spirit, but her mental health. Possible psychological disorders caused by long-term child abuse: Any of the dissociative disorders including MPD (renamed DID), Borderline Personality Disorder; and on a secondary axis every kind of anxiety and mood disorder. A severely damaged person to be sure.

    How nice – the ranks right up there with the aborting of girl-fetuses in India.

    Utterly disturbing & sickening.

    There are some majorly sick people in this world. I don’t get it. This one happened near here earlier this week.

    Can one renounce membership in the human race? I want to sometimes.

    I don’t know about opting out of the human race, but we all can opt out of the patriarchy.

    We should opt out of patriarchy for sure. Even the males who appear to benefit from it do so at the cost of remaining half-human beings. It is not even a half-human who kills his daughter.

    When my daughter was a young teenager, she said to me that the only reason males allow women to live is to use us as breeders of the next generation of males.
