"This is the Bobbitt case, done right."

"Who cares even if he abused her. You don't go murdering people in their sleep just because. If a kid shoots up his school because he was bullied, we don't go 'oh he was bullied, so it's okay.' She has how many options to dealing with this? Murder isn't one of them, and any woman who kills for whatever reason (short of self defense) should have the book thrown at her."

I'm of two minds of this. On the one hand, it is almost, by definition, impossible to justify an assault on a sleeping person. On the other: systemic abuse screws a person's brain up. But, does the response about how that should mean a plea of temporary insanity/some equivalent, be what is required? Should battered-woman's syndrome be battered-person's syndrome (could a man use the defense against a woman? Could a gay man use it against his gay lover? Could two roommates (of either gender in a non-sexual relationship use it against each other)?

I agree.

The commenter summarized the situation well.
"Because men supposedly have so much power over women in our society, women should be given the powers of judge, jury and executioner."

What the feminists are looking for is a matriarchy which is much more oppressive than the Western patriarchy they are replacing in which the women were viewed as a protected class. What they are probably going to end up with is a patriarchy which is much more hostile to women than traditional Western civilization. The new patriarchy already exists -- Islam.

She made two mistakes: shooting him instead of setting the bed on fire (fire seems much more breaking-point-crazy) and not looking like Farrah Fawcett.

Yet again feminists want to have a different standard for men than for women. And once again, standards that would be unacceptable were they applied to a woman are applied to men without commentary.
When Bobbit had his pick chopped off, a lot of women scoffed at it, and said he had it coming. Imagine if instead he chopped of Lorena's tit or clitoris. He would be the biggest monster ever. Chopping off a mans dick though is grounds for endless jokes.

It reminds me of the Carrie Underwood song "Before He Cheats" where the lyrics go:
"Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleached-blond tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...
right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink
'cause she can't shoot whiskey...
Right now, he's probably up behind her with a pool stick,
showing her how to shoot a combo...

And he don't know...

"That I dug my key into the side
of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats."

Imagine if the song were about a guy who commits vandalism on a womans things because she probably cheated. NOW would be talking about violence against women and how the song should be banned, and how the singer was coming across like a deranged stalker.
But if it's carrie Underwood, why then it's an empowering song. THe guy had it coming.
