    in this case, the woman hit the man with a pan and stabbed him

    and the judge said basically said " if the role was revered and it was a man who beat his girlfriend with a frying pan and then stabbed her repeatedly, he is "doubtful" the sentence would be as light.

    More likely he would be incarcerated for a significant period of time"

    It's disgusting that she got let off without even a day in jail.

    It's an injustice. Not much more to say than that really.

    It's terrible, I can't believe the judge even admitted thinking like that. How ridiculous. She definitely should have got more time.

    Erm.. no... a feminist would say that men + women should be treated equally, so the judge is a complete ******. :eyebrow:

    Oh FFS. Feminists don't have the attitude, "the woman is always right and men are pigs" (apart from a small minority who piss everyone else off). I am a feminist and I think the whole thing is a travesty. Of course she should have gone to prison.

    Where did you learn your opinion of feminists from? Things other blokes say?
