Dear God, what the hell kind of society are we living in? There was breaking news, a burning tanker truck in Pennsauken, which sent me to turn Channel 6 on to see if they were broadcasting and I happened upon The View. They were talking about boxer Floyd Mayweather’s history of domestic violence and how they (Whoopi and Rosie Perez were the two I heard talking about this) are okay with him because he “served his time” and “did what he was supposed to.”
I don’t follow boxing and I had no idea of this scumbag’s history of domestic violence. So I had to Google him, I just read this Dead Spin story about him and I’m appalled by the lack of any real punishment this monster has received. And my God, the women on The View are fine with this. I don’t watch The View but aren’t these women supposed to be a bastion of feminism and girl power?
The man is a professional boxer and the most jail time this man’s seen is 90 days for beating a woman. He punched her repeatedly in the back of the head.
Dear Reese Witherspoon, et. al, stop complaining about being asked about your dresses and address the danger of being a woman in this society. I stand absolutely astonished that a monster such as this one walks among society and is hailed a hero and a celebrity and that people like Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez are fine with him continuing to be a celebrity boxer. I’m astonished and appalled. I’m actually brokenhearted to know that my life and the lives of all women are apparently less valuable than boxing’s golden boy and those making money off of him. Unreal. I’m sick.
