An Arizona State Senator's girlfriend beat the shit out of him:
PHOENIX - Scott Bundgaard and his girlfriend, Aubry Ballard, got into such a heated argument that Bundgaard had to pull over to the side of a busy Arizona highway, prompting an off-duty officer to call the police....
Bundgaard spoke with KPHO about what happened Friday night; he had a black eye and a swollen lip, according to the station.
When his girlfriend was arrested, what did the media report?
Did the media note that women commit domestic violence as often as men? It's a statistical fact, Jane. Did the media report that although women are the primary abusers in domestic relationships, men are the ones arrested 95% in all domestic abuse cases, and that many police departments have a mandatory-arrest policy? That is, if a woman calls the cops to report domestic violence, the man must be arrested?
Nah. Here is the story:
Both Ballard and Bundgaard showed physical signs of an altercation but only Ballard ended up in jail.
Because Bundgaard happens to be an Arizona state legislator and is therefore immune from arrest while the Legislature is in session.
That's one theory, and it's the preferred theory. After all, it makes a man look bad. Another theory is that Bundgaard was merely defending himself from a hellcat:
Upon leaving the event I was accused of inappropriately touching my dancing partner, in front of my parents and family mind you, and she proceeded to throw my clothes and other things out of my car on a freeway as I took her home. I stopped on the freeway to retrieve these items. As I was doing so my girlfriend yelled that she was going to take my car and moved into the driver’s seat. I immediately returned to the car and asked her to get out. She refused. I had no choice but to pull her from the driver’s seat which resulted in marks on her knees. I had also had no choice but to stop her from punching me and risking highway safety, all of which resulted in a black eye for me and a busted lip (photos available upon request). The authorities arrived as I tried to retrieve my belongings from the highway.
An Arizona state senator may be immune from arrest while the legislature is in session, but he is certainly not immune from misandry.
CBS, for example, didn't even call Bundgaard, asking for his side of the story. Instead, it ran with the misandrist angle, namely that a man cannot be the victim of domestic violence. CBS did, however, contact the hellcat, and it printed her statement in full:
"To go from putting on a beautiful dress for a great date to a fundraiser to ending up on the side of a freeway? I don't have another tear left to cry. I'm still trying to get my mind around a few things: Scott's actions, the 17 hours I spent in jail awaiting processing, my bruises, scrapes and soreness and his statements to the media," the statement reads.
Instead of focusing on her violent temper, she talks about her dresses and her tears and her bruises. Me, me, me, me, me. The only time she refuses to focus on herself is when asked to take personal responsibility for her crimes.
She has been taught by CBS and popular culture that men are evil, and to be mistrusted. As a man, you should return the favor, and view society as it views you.
