    Fueling My Fire

    I never sent this message. I have always disagreed with abuse of any nature. Of course he is a 40 sum thing year old man who lies to get attention and who can't handle strong women. He's openly admitted to abusing his family. So this is a post from HOHOFMYHOUSE on May 22nd...

    It's a shame how some men can beat a woman

    bloody. There is no excuse for it. They know what they are doing is wrong yet they keep doing it. I wish there was a button I could press to send different groups of people to Pluto for eternity the moment I press it. Woman beaters would be in the top 10.

    What Abuse Looks Like
