I'll say this right up front. The Baltimore Raven's running back Ray Rice is a coward. He is a piece of scum. He is a bully. He is worthless. He is not a real man. He is evil.
Any man who lays a hand on a woman (or a child) is a coward. Simple as that.
Now for those who stick up for him (and I've already heard one this morning saying what a "wonderful man" Ray Rice is).
NO HE ISN'T
Any man who lays a hand on a woman IS NOT A "WONDERFUL MAN." Got that idiots?
In my family, I am so fortunate because we didn't not have domestic violence. Not even a loud argument. Sure, my father at times could be cruel and unfeeling but the was NEVER, and I mean NEVER violent, either verbally or physically with my Mother. Now that I'm an adult and I hear of other families who had domestic abusers as a parent, I realize how frigging lucky I was. I just cannot imagine growing up in such a household.
I can't imagine settling any difference or arguments with violence.
IT JUST DOESN'T WORK
There is no excuse, none whatsoever for laying hands on a woman or the one you love (as in gay relationships).
Bill and I have had some "differences" in our fifty years of marital bliss but never, not once, did anyone ever come to blows. And no one had to hold ourselves back, it's just not in our makeup. If I was ever with someone who felt the need to settle an argument with his fists, well I wouldn't be with that person for long.
That's why I'm having a hard time understanding why Ray Rice's wife Jaynay is now defending him and trashing "the media" for "destroying" her family.
Hey Jaynay, look at the bum next to you. Mr. Macho Man. He's the one who destroyed your marriage and life. No more big NFL paychecks coming your way because your COWARD husband got caught on video tape knocking you unconscious.
Sure, I can understand Jaynay's desire to live the privileged lifestyle as the wife of a big time NFL football star but Jaynay, your asshole husband blew it when he punched you in the face and oh so casually dragged you out of that Atlantic City elevator like a rag doll.
I'll say it again . . . . and again. Any man who lays a hand on a woman, for whatever reason
IS A COWARD
and should be shunned. There is no going back. Once a wife beater, always a wife beater. They never change.
And for those who stick up for the Ray Rice's of the world, just because they want to keep the money rolling in, you are all beneath contempt because you keep this evil alive.
See HERE for the TMZ video. Warning - it is sickening.
