Violent Wacko (formerly titled Becker)
Most everyone has seen the story in the news by now about this woman that cut off her soon-to-be ex-husband’s genital member (I’m keeping it G rated as my page is listed). By now we’ve also probably all seen various comments on web sites, in groups, on news sources, and many of them come from crass individuals that seem to think it’s a big joke. Those are bad, but the worse to me is the vicious females I’ve seen applauding this violent criminal behavior. I can’t sit and not say anything about it.
I am disturbed – as anyone should be – that a female anywhere would perpetrate a mutilation of this nature. Worse, it was not a violent situation of self-defense. It was a plotted abduction wherein she fed him a drugged meal, tied him up, and assaulted him brutally. If you’re reading this, and you are one of those women that had a private chuckle over it, or thought to yourself that she is some kind of heroic Amazonian for female justice… STOP. First of all, please don’t ever read my page again. I don’t want you here. This was nothing more than a psychotic, violent, and unnecessary CRIME. How dare anyone crack jokes or sing the praises of someone that would do such a thing.
What bothers me even more is that these women parading around a banner of lauding her actions are the very ones that would be tragically outraged if it had happened to a woman. Any woman. No matter the circumstances, women everywhere would be screaming “kill the bastard” for having destroyed a woman’s body unjustly. Where did this male-bashing crap come from anyway? Who do these troops of crazed harpies think they are? Have you completely lost your mind? You want men to respect females because of their societal role… nurturers, givers of life, comforters…. but you display none of that in these moments, and give nothing back. Respect is a two way street and for both parties it must be deserving. I despise “women’s libbers”, FYI. It has done more to harm us than help us. It is not the same thing as equal rights. It is in that pro-feministic, almost warlike response that we have lost ourselves. Fight for the right things in the right way. Two wrongs to not make that right thing happen.
You can process the bad things that have happened in your life and move on with wisdom and growth. You can instead choose to wallow in filth, simmer in hatred, and come out an ugly, violent, seething, unpleasant creature – pretty face or not – that no one should want to be around. While you’re doing that, you’re giving the rest of us a bad name! Men do not need to be made to fear us. If that’s your goal, shame on you again. We have enough fear in this world, and enough violence, and enough horror. It doesn’t need to be brought home intentionally. You are a product of your environment, but you get to choose what that product IS. Choosing to take the path of lashing out is nothing but pathetic immaturity.
Catherine Kieu is a criminal. So was Bobbit. There is no excuse for mutilating another human being in these types of situations. They are not heroic. They are damaged.
Added notes 7/17/11:
Various news sources have skewed the facts and scrambled them. It seems that this couple was already at the very least already separated and still living together as roommates while she worked on trying to return to her country of origin, Vietnam. (In the state of CA there is a 6 month waiting period, and he filed in May, so they couldn’t already be legally divorced… but you can be legally separated.) The blurb about “argued about friends staying at the condo” is her getting jealous about his female guests. She has had money issues the 7 yrs she’s been in this country, and was all over dating sites from 2004, and has a tax lien to the tune of around $4K from 2005. No wonder she can’t get the hell out of here. I feel sorry for the guy that decided to marry her in 2010 only to be butchered after they parted ways the following year. He was helping her out by not tossing her out, if you ask me. She repays him by slicing him up to keep him from moving on with his life? What really appalls me is that she will likely have the possibility of parole, whatever her sentence. Do we really need this kind of person loose in our society? I say if she ever gets out, send her back to Vietnam. They can keep her!
