Me. As much I love bonding with AA over mutual interests, me and boxing are in mutually apathetic part of our marriage (I'm married AA and now I'm married to football/basketball/boxing/EWTN). This past weekend, AA did his once a quarter "but this is the only thing I want…" - this time in reference to a boxing match featuring Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana.
Well a lot - While it isn't a widespread thing like…I don't know, Ray Rice - Floyd doesn't really lend himself to be a humanitarian, a man, or well human. He beats the mothers (yes plural) of his children. He acquires people (friends and girlfriends alike) like one would acquire songs in iTunes or worse like a sneaker head gets Air Force Ones. Oh. And he humiliates and public shames those that cross him. Sound kinda of childish?
Sis. Listen. RT “@auyellowrose: @ReignOfApril so do I buy the fight or let my husband go on a binge and get home at god knows what time?”

I can't really complain because I honestly would rather my husband be at home safe than stumbling around DC (he did that on the regular before we dated). I can suck a fee even it means paying Floyd tv rights.
We have a complicated history and love/hate relationship with men who violate the rights of women:
- Chris Brown was on the tonight show last week.
- Mike Tyson has a one man show, a HBO special, and this viral gem:
- Ray Rice…still has his supporters. No really he does. (I have an opinion and it is consistent with everyone else's).
- Hell…Ray Lewis went on trial for murder…he still played. It was a man he was accused of murdering but still you get the point.
You get what I'm saying. We forgive some but not all. I can't really take a side on should we forgive and forget because I have been on both ends - watching domestic violence and trying to defend someone who was portrayed on several occasions as a man who assaulted women (he was defending himself in the first case while the second he was being an ass).
Just for the record - I don't ask or give advice. Nope. Sorry if you're not ingrained in TFCL speak but I speak in hypotheticals.
