    I hope he's not going to have to go back and live with her and that visitation is supervised.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Dear god. I hope she does get prison, and psychotherapy to fix whatever caused her to think that would be the best course of action.

    Here's a completely unsurprising comment.

    I have heard first hand that lives of military wives ,especially those living on or near the base, are stressed to the umpteenth degree. No excuses for this behavior. I am looking for reasons, though.

    Maybe this was a case of misdireted aggression against a philandering or otherwise abusive military husband. None of this should have happened. But we must look for reasons while aiming for justice. I hope this baby's scars--all of them--will heal, with proper professional help for all the family.
    Whenever a woman is violent, it must be because a man pushed her into it. This is really the father's fault. I wonder if Sharon Osbourne is disappointed because no blender was involved.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Well the basis of that is that it was once permissible (and still is in some cultures) for husbands to beat their wives and children, and even rape them (because husband can't rape his wife, she is his property)...this cozy scenario is so "normal" historically in patriarchal cultures, that people who make these assumptions are not just pissing in the wind, if they didn't experience it themselves, their parents or grandparents did.

    I agree though that women can be violent for other reasons, maybe she is schizophrenic, but statistically speaking even mentally ill women are less likely to be violent than mentally ill men.

    Maybe it upsets you, but blame the reality of society.

    I think the commentor was genuine in their expression of not seeking excuses, but actual understanding of where this kind of behaviour comes from. Men or women, regardless of whether it was justified or not, have their behaviour motivated by some trigger or reason. And understanding that trigger/reason makes it a hell of a lot easier to rehabilitate such people.

    As for what she did - there are no words.

    Right...that's why the first thing that pops into peoples' heads when a woman is violent is, "what man drove her to it". She's not really responsible. Someone (a man) made her do it. When a woman kills her husband, "he must have been abusive". When a woman abuses her child, "her husband must have abused her".

    Because it's that common.

    The consequence of treating women like children is that they are infantilized.

    Male on female domestic abuse is no more common than the converse. Men are just stronger and leave more obvious marks. They are also far less likely to report domestic abuse.

    I've never heard someone try to explain a man's violent behavior being the result of his wife abusing him. I don't expect to hear it in my lifetime.

    Should I expect to see you protesting for longer prison sentences for women any time soon?
