wherein i reconsider my stance on non-violence

I've been in too many fights to know that violence is, 99% of time, not the answer. If someone is giving you problems and you kick their ass, well, of course they're going to cease pestering you. They're afraid. Sure, it solves the problem, but that's only because fear keeps people in line. Putting a gun to someone's head will result in me getting whatever the fuck I want from them, too. That doesn't make it right. It's cliche, but a good fighter rarely starts fights. He's been in enough to know better. I only entertain violent thoughts when someone poses as a significant threat to someone I know. I'm fiercely protective of the people I care about. For example, Tina has a stalker who has broken into her apartment twice. The police didn't seem to care that much and I started wondering about the bone-shattering capabilities of wooden bats as opposed to aluminum ones. That doesn't mean I'm actually going to do anything, but you get my point.

All that said, though, there are those instances where you meet someone who has done nothing to you or to anyone you know, and yet, you want to beat the living shit out of them. Ladies, meet Travis Frey. Travis Frey is a douchebag. Quoth the Smoking Gun:

This country, as you know, is filled with the deranged. And then there's Travis Frey, a 33-year-old Iowa man who is facing charges that he tried to kidnap his own wife (not to mention a separate child pornography rap). Frey, prosecutors contend, apparently is a rather demanding guy. In fact, he actually drew up a bizarre four-page marriage document--a "Contract of Wifely Expectations"--that sought to establish guidelines for his spouse in terms of hygiene, clothing, and sexual activities.

What size penis do you think ol' Trav is packing? Oh, I'd say about three inches. Flaccid? Maybe a half inch. Am I right, Trav? I mean, that's why you're looking at child pr0n, right? You're like those guys who only go after virgins because the tighter and smaller vaginas compensate for all that staggering non-penis. Dude, it's all a little too transparent. There's no need to take the rage directed at your inadequate genes out on women. I mean, you look pretty goddamned homely and any guy with this much loathing toward women is clearly hung like a preemie, but shit man, get some fucking class.

You know Trav, obviously, it's nothing personal. I just fucking hate people who think they're entitled. I know you're small and you're scared and the world's a big, confusing place, but you're not entitled to shit. This country is awash in spoilt brats, from high society rollers like Paris Hilton (who, I'm sure, would find you "totally hot," by the way) to nobodies such as yourself. I guess gross narcissistic entitlement transcends economic boundaries. Hey, you learn something snazzy and new every day. But busted-ass, small-penised douchebags who beat their wives and download kiddie pr0n? Unfortunately, that story's as old as the hills.
