“I was Holding the Baby”

February 28, 2012

Why do women say “’I was holding the baby’ when he hit/punch/kicked/cursed me out, etc”…….as if what?

Would his offense be any less severe if you were not holding the baby or if you didn’t have a baby?

Are you saying what he did is only a crime because you were holding a baby and if you were not holding a baby, it would be acceptable?

Does it supposed to represent some arbitrary line that he crossed? As in, he is not crossing that line if he punches you in the face when you are not holding a baby but is crossing that line if the baby sees it?

What does holding the baby have to do with it?

    Well babies are meant to be innocent, whereas she obviously isn’t, and deserved what was coming to her.

    And then there is the whole mother cult bit to contend with. It’s a violation of the sanctity of the mother child blah blah blah, etc. .

    And I have definitely heard women say things like “not in front of the children” when he is obviously about to rip into her, verbally or physically.

    I don’t want anyone to get me wrong because I most certainly don’t think children should be abused. And watching their mothers get verbally and/or physically abused, is abuse. I believe allowing the children to see/hear the abuse is creating a whole new generation of potential degenerates. However, it has been mothers (women) who have protected these children at the expense of herself. Therefore, making her a sacrifice that shouldn’t be necessary if bastard assholes simply did not abuse, anyone, her or the children. She has to lose her life (not necessary death, but certainly her quality of life) in order to assure the next generation. Why is it her burden?

    Yes.

    And I did not think you were advocating any form of child abuse. Just, these women should also care about themselves, should see their *own* value, and as other than mothers.
