    Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

NICE GUY ALERT
This dude comments on a video made about violence against women [TW for the video] and his valuable opinion is that “[abusive relationships] ruins great women for us nice guys”. 
Forget about women’s personal health and wellbeing after being in an abusive relationship, noooo, the most IMPORTANT thing is that they aren’t RUINED coz all those poor nice guys don’t want “ruined” women. Won’t someone please think of us nice guys!?!?11


Chris Hernandez of Platinum Jewelers does not care about women.  He thinks women in abuse relationships are ‘weak’ and cares more about not having to deal with their ‘drama’ than preventing the pain and suffering they might feel.
That’s Chris Hernandez, Store Manager at Platinum Jewelers.

Right, Chris Hernandez, women are only here as some sort of reward, and as we know, the “great” ones are few and far between. It’s why these “great women” need to leave abusive relationships and run to you, because you’re such a Nice Guy™. (not-so-great women, you can just stay where you are, apparently.) 
The worst part of this is the use of the word “ruin”. Like women are cars or shoes, and once we’ve been used up, well, we’re “ruined” and not worth anything anymore.

  3. Men’s rights groups, convinced that men are the biggest victims of modern society, have been busy attacking, defunding, and repealing laws that have been very effective at protecting women and lowering rates of domestic violence. They’re wrong and they’re dangerous and they need to be stopped.

    (Boston Magazine) - If your last memory of men’s groups is Robert Bly and the boys banging on drums in the woods, you likely have no idea how the movement has mutated. Today, men’s rights groups tend to be organized around the belief that this country has launched a “war on fatherhood.” To them, the rise of feminism resulted in the fall of man, with males now being relegated to the periphery of society. In their eyes, the media portray men as feckless buffoons, legislative bodies unfairly target them, and biased courts blindly punish guiltless husbands. (Full disclosure: I was a producer of the 2011 documentary No Way Out But One, which examined the family court system.)

    Nationally, groups like Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) and A Voice for Men have helped slow the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act—which would provide $660 million in funding for shelters, legal aid, and other programs to protect battered women—by convincing conservative House Republicans that the law shouldn’t include immigrants, Native Americans, and LGBT victims. SAVE claims the law is biased, noting in a fact sheet titled “Seven Key Facts About Domestic Violence” that “female initiation of partner violence is the leading reason for the woman becoming a victim of subsequent violence.” In other words: She was asking for it, officer.

    If women really were fated to be significantly more anxious than men, we would expect them to start showing this nervousness at a very young age, right? Yet precisely the opposite is true: According to the UCLA anxiety expert Michelle Craske, in the first few months of infants’ lives, it’s boys who show greater emotional neediness. While girls become slightly more prone to negative feelings than boys at two years (which, coincidentally, is the age at which kids begin learning gender roles), research has shown that up until age 11, girls and boys are equally likely to develop an anxiety disorder. By age 15, however, girls are six times more likely to have one than boys are.

    Wow: This quote I posted the other day now has 1100+ notes. I think the gendering of anxiety is really hitting home with a lot of people.

    That, and the age thing really resonates with me because it is spot on from my experience.
