Real Men Do Not AbuseThis may sound silly coming from a little ol' CD/TV like myself, but here goes....
A man, who is secure in himself does not resort to violence against his own family for ANY reason. That violence should be reserved for anyone wishing to cause them bodily harm.
Despite my own father being abusive, I was still taught not to abuse others, mostly by my mom.
ANY man who would lay his hand on a woman or a child, unless they came at him with deadly force, is not by any definition, a man.
He is a cowardly, insecure little boy. If ANY man ever laid a finger on a member of my family, or on one of my female friends, he would learn a very dear lesson.
