    I remember watching this on lifetime in college in our dorm and everybody on my floor cried through the whole thing. Ever since then no size or amount of dick can make me stay with a mf even after screaming at me! I’m gone!
    I’d have had a pistol in that fucker. He’s a changed man today, married with child. Tracy, on the other hand, still paralyzed and scarred for life! His punk ass wishes people would stop talking about it is his comment.
    And there’s no pic of that bitch ass no where so he’s protected from getting the do-do dog shit slapped outta him if he’s recognized.

      steve b That’s a little harsh and a bit dismissive. She’s not an idiot and neither are the MANY other domestic abuse victims. It’s no joke and neither are the psychological effects that the victims endure. No one knows what it’s like until they’ve lived it.

      If that "certain way" means hanging her tits out for sexual attention (like Alyssa Milano did when she barged into the Kavanaugh hearings), then I'd say she gets what she's looking for.

    A deranged man threatened me on social media. He said that he would be coming to my house. He claimed he went to internet veteran sites and lied that I was making derogatory comments about veterans. He said the vets would also be coming to my house for revenge. I contacted the police who said they couldn't do anything until the man actually tried to harm me.

    Never mentioned in any story about her is that she kept his son from him in violation of court order. She has claimed a billion times that she was "abused" throughout their marriage and that he "can't control his temper", then did everything to make him angry - like keeping him from his child. She has some responsibility for her beating..... but she'll never admit it. She did admit that she didn't want to marry him at all, but did it to get out of her parent's house. That's abusive, too.

      I was a Victim's Advocate for twelve years. Every domestic violence survivor I worked with had a background of abuse. Sociopaths pick their victims well. There are always signs but women want to help them....they are not fixable. As to buying a gun....these abusers take fell phones, note mileage, take keys, burn social security cards and birth certificates. Get a clue cupcake before you get someone killed.

      You're joking. " other women that are abuse (sic) can speak out more...". Women do that all day and night, every day and night. When they have nothing to "speak out" about, they make false accusations. You're not a victim unless you let yourself be one. If a man hits you, hit him back, don't cower in the corner crying. Woman up, take control of your life.

    If we didn't have "liberalism" and if we only want to have conservative laws. Cases like this would still be happening in our country. I am not saying it has been stopped 100%, but now no longer HAVE to see it as NONE of my business and he is the husband he owns her.
    For laws to be changed, and to change the views of some, others have to fight, to bring awareness and if people are labeled as liberal, crazy etc, cause they want changes like this, then what a conservative is for wanting to live in the past?

      Mary Madrigal 21 day ago

      +Beverly Hillin if it was poorly to read, how was it possible for you to answer my comment back?
      Yeah, yeah all conservatives label all protests as riots cause they are a bunch of hypocrites. They don't like change and don't want equality for all. So, it is easier for them to label everything as a riot.
      Oh come on! Since when conservatives are in favor for equality in women? Equal rights for gays? For blacks? For minorities? Don't come here and say conservatives are in favor for equal rights for all.
      They live in the past while shielding themselves behind their religious/righteous hypocrisy.
      I say conservatives are in favor of women been treated like crap cause they don't want changes. They live in the past.
      Did women had equal rights as men in the past? No! This case is proof of it.

    • Beverly Hillin
      Beverly Hillin 21 day ago

      +Mary Madrigal please proofread your comments. That was difficult to follow. Conservatives aren't anti-protests. We just don't think it's productive to riot. We do not support or condone the abuse of women. To suggest otherwise is ridiculous. Also... you can call me honey all you want. Unfortunately, it doesn't make you right, it doesn't make you superior, and sadly, it doesn't make your poorly written comment easier to read.

    It’s crazy to think that it was 1984 that a wife legally was no longer her husbands property!! Prior to that she was! Which is why the cops were so fucking useless in these situations back then. It’s not just that they weren’t trained! They didn’t feel the need to be! If what happened in the movie was true to fact, that cop had no fucking clue what to do! Never mind he’s heard screams and takes his sweet ass time! Why? Cause he thinks it’s just another hysterical woman! Unbelievable... God Bless Tracey 🙏🏼 I hope she’s doing well today, and her son.

    It’s hard to stay in a relationship with an abuser. Best to leave the abuser and live in a shelter if there’s no one else to stay with. But it’s better than ending up dead. Wake up women! There is no excuse but that he doesn’t love himself to love you, and even that there is no excuse for him battering you. And don’t force him to love you by staying with him.

      They usually Isolate their victims from their families and friends, do not want their wifes working ,so they have no money and no car.
      They're trapped like rats in a cage ! If they manage to leave with the child these bastards tell the cops that she kidnapped the child ... it's not that easy...
      In this case the cops messed up and there are thousands of cases like her, many women did not survive !

Fight for your body. Love your SELVES beyond anyone who can ever love you. Name calling nit picking ,anger, pressure ,stress . your not anyones punching bag. Abd you are bot disposable. Every man goes to jail. No dropping charges. no more . You assulted a human being. When it gonna stop... our communities are responsiable. Battered womens syndrome is a change in the brain and nervous system that cant tell the differnce between rite from wrong. Laws have to change so women stop dying and get treated second. This is a dead practices. Laws apply to women the same in the USA. No one person has power over you.

    Well, you girls want to control your man; you want to dominate him, and your mind is always set on how you can make him your dependant.
    You don't fool me girls; I know what you do while hubby is away. Always on the prowl for stud service...then home in time to pick up the kids, and dinners ready by 6; and the poor bastard your married to, doesn't have a clue that 3 hours earlier you were getting banged by Mr. 8 inch stud at his apartment. ain't no angels; and you can only push a man so far, before he snaps.
    Personally, I find life much more satisfying without a woman. Life is simple, I have a lot of money, I have really nice house, I got my Harley, and and a new car every couple of years. I'm in really good shape, with broad shoulders and a 6 Pac. Lots of semi good looking 30-50 year old cougar bored housewives, always prowling around looking for stud service.
    Men, take my advice; divorce that old hag, and start living the good life.

      It's not a choice a lot of the time. Men like him don't give you the option to leave. They'd rather kill you than let you leave. And even when you're able to get away they will find you and you either go back home, or get killed. Simple as that.

    A cry for help. The Tracey Thurman story starring Nancy McKeon. The movie is very well done. I watched it when I was younger on lifetime. Tracey Thurman proved that there are cracks in the justice system and just because you’re married doesn’t mean he has the right to beat you or touch you in any kind of a way that you don’t allow. She helped pave the way for domestic violence and restraining orders and shelters for women through her own pain, tears, and almost her own murder. There is still work that needs to be done. In 1998 my husband wanted sex and I didn’t because I was taking care of our children who were 2 1/2 years old and 1 year old. He literally pushed me down to the ground and tore my clothes to get me undressed and raped me. When the police arrived I was telling them what he had done and that the entire time I was screaming no. The officer told me it’s not rape. It doesn’t matter if I said no because my husband is entitled to have a physical relationship with his wife and that it is not committing rape. I decided because of that response I would leave my husband. By that point he had been beating me for 3 years and now he can rape me too. I was awarded a restraining order and he couldn’t be within 100 miles of me. He moved in right next door. I called the police and spoke with the watch commander and he told me that it sounds like if I don’t move my husband was going to kill me. Both my babies were boys and I never wanted them to witness all of what their father was doing to me and think it’s ok to do to their girlfriend/wife. Their father was beating them too. My oldest is blind in one eye and his frontal lobe is dead from shaken baby syndrome at 3 months old. He hit my youngest son so hard and when I pulled off his diaper, his entire butt cheeks and lower back was one huge bruise and bruises all over his face. My ex explained he was trying to burp him. My son was nine months old. I fooled myself for years and lived in denial thinking he would change. Their father never tried to fight me for my sons and they are 23 and 21 now. They’ve never put their hands on their wives in a bad way. They cook and clean and take care of my only grandchild. Taking their abusive father out of the equation allowed me to raise them in a way every woman would love. It allowed us to heal.

It can also end up with the man being abused or killed. Women think that they don't contribute to what happens in the relationship by they do and it's about time they started taking responsibility for it.

      Umm.... If a woman is being beaten by her husband, she does not contribute to that problem. The one doing the abuse as 100% at fault for their own actions. not that you would admit it, but I have a strong suspicion but if you're married you also beat your wife and this is your guilty conscience trying to defend yourself.

    Fergs Month ago +14

    It's very complicated why we stay. You can say that this is what you would do, but until you walk a mile or even a block in our shoes, then you can say what you would or wouldn't do.
    I stayed for so many reasons and I planned escapes many times to only be sabotaged by him.
    He was a very manipulative Narcissist who isolated me and beat me down on a daily basis is so many underhanded ways that I could never have enough air in my lungs to try and explain them all to you.
    Then it became physical after the mental and emotional tear down. Then financial after I lacked the confidence to do my job as a life coach and public speaker. So I was financially dependent as well.
    Last but certainly not least it was the threat of taking my health insurance away after being diagnosed with Lupus.
    I finally did leave with the clothes on my back only.
    It's been rough for sure but freedom has never tasted sweeter.
    Instead of judging women for staying or saying I would never let a man do this to me (because I was the sassy lil miss confident who also said I would never allow a man to disrespect me - the perfect trophy for a man like him to break) Let us help women recover from the shame, fear, self loathing, abuse, pain, PTSD, and so many issues that we have when we finally find the strength and that shred of self love that he wasn't able to take away and leave the sorry pieces of shit.
    Asking for help is so hard. Especially someone like me who is very self reliant and independant. It's been a hard f'ing road these past 5 months.
    When I get back on my feet all I want my life to focus on is helping other women get out and then build them back up again.
    Never shame a woman who has stayed in an abusive relationship or is still in one... We shame ourselves enough.

      Not gonna lie, what Dick said really pissed me off, but also made me feel pretty rotten for a few hours and my mind kept going over it more times than I would care to admit.
      Just proves my point on why we don't share or ask for help. Of which I did and either got the same thing or "We can't get involved".
      I've learned that this is a taboo subject to discuss with many people. Male and female.
      I really do want to change that. With supporters like you, I KNOW that I CAN and WILL!

      Do not speak to me or any other woman that has gone thru this of things you KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.
      Like I said, walk a mile or even a freaking block in our shoes. Then and only then have you earned the right to have an opinion.
      In the meantime Dick you are emulating your namesake. So just like him, you should keep your BIG MOUTH SHUT.
      And NO, I do not believe all men are bad or abusers. I just take offense when a Man tries to shove his unsolicited word salad of Bull Shit down my throat.

He'll have to Sleep while standing up, cuz if he EVER decides to close his eyes after touching ME, TRUST, they'll be closed permantly when I'm done with him. Women accept and endure so much from men just to have them in their lives. They have to learn that Love doesn't mean causing hurt and pain and if you have to put ur hands on me to prove that, then DON'T LOVE ME!

Their love for them keeping them as well as I did hanging on to someone who would do them in such a way and even would or will kill them. Like on other one that commented just be there for her each time don't turn your back on her. Keep a log of all the bad he does with date and time that way you'll have something to help you remember and account about his actions.
