The Overlooked Victims of Domestic Violence

In addition to being Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Down Syndrome Awareness Month, October is also Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. To mark the occasion, my co-host Lisa Tarves and I interviewed a wonderful, Chester County Pennsylvania-based organization – the Domestic Abuse Center of Chester County – about the meaningful, purposeful work they do on behalf of the abused.

It was a thought-provoking, informative, and important conversation during which the interviewees noted that not all abuse comes from men – that women are just as capable of inflicting physical, mental, and emotional damage. We also took two callers who shared some interesting perspectives with us. Domestic violence is of course an emotionally charged issue, and I was grateful that everyone respected opinions with which they disagreed. This is how adults ought to behave.

Ironically, today I came across the following report from the intrepid investigative journalist Pamela Geller, New York City: Muslim genitally mutilates wife after raping her. After my visceral revulsion and outrage subsided a bit, I got to wondering: doesn’t this also qualify as domestic violence? Why aren’t Muslim men who commit these barbaric acts against women included in Domestic Violence Awareness Month? As Lisa rightfully stated during our broadcast, “abuse is abuse” no matter who’s doing it. Why do Muslim men get a free pass?

Oh, right.

Feminists are too busy railing against a mythical patriarchy and lecturing us about how all cultures are equal. They’re also raging hypocrites who share a hatred of America with Muslim jihadists. Perilous times.

Meanwhile, Muslim women suffering unspeakable crimes committed against them by their husbands (and other men in their lives) are sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. Domestic Violence Awareness Month? Not for millions of women around the globe routinely stoned, mutilated, and raped in the name of Allah and Sharia Law. No, these poor females must be completely ignored in the name of “cultural equality” and rampant dhimmitude.

God help them.


Writestream Tuesday: Down Syndrome Awareness and the Right Wing Riot – UPDATED

Did you know October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month?


In honor of the occasion, I am hosting a very special Writestream Tuesday on October 14 at 1 p.m. Eastern. During the first hour I’ll talk about my wonderful brother Ralph and the amazing impact he’s had not just on my own life but the lives of countless others who have been blessed to know him. I also encourage listeners to call in with their personal stories of special folks in their lives with Down Syndrome at (347) 945-7246.

Back in the day: Ralph and me engaging in one of our favorite childhood rituals.

And because I am not one to shy away from controversy and hard realities, I’ll also discuss the depressing statistics with respect to Down Syndrome: 90% of unborn babies found to have Down Syndrome are aborted. That is a tragic, sobering fact – one I refuse to ignore. So while this will mainly be an uplifting show, I’d be remiss if I neglected to address it.


In the second hour, stay tuned for public service satire with the Right Wing Riot featuring the Luminaries of Liberty – Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right and The Prince of Whitebread.

UPDATE: Happy to announce that Tears of Paradox author Daniella Bova will be joining me in the first hour!

  • Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten.
  • At least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.
  • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
  • Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm.
  • Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
  • Between 55 and 95% of women who have been physically abused by their partners have never contacted non-governmental organizations, shelters, or the police for help.

Recap of Love Liberty & Lip Gloss: Breast Cancer Awareness

Lisa and I truly enjoyed tonight’s relaunch of Love Liberty and Lip Gloss with our guests, Marina Fontaine and Sue Bolich. After our previously scheduled guest had to cancel a few days prior to our air date, we had to scramble quickly to find a replacement.

Fortunately, I had the good sense to mention our dilemma to my CLFA group on Facebook because in minutes Marina Fontaine stepped up (even though she was nervous about doing the interview) and Karina Fabian suggested author Sue Bolich, who graciously accepted the late invitation. So in the end, we wound up with not one, but two fabulous guests.


These gutsy ladies blew us away with their positive outlook and zest for life. As the daughter of a hard-working general and vascular surgeon who was dedicated to his patients and profession, it was gratifying to listen to Marina and Sue rave about the medical care they received from their doctors, nurses, and staff. These days it’s typical for many Americans to gripe about their medical care but in spite of bad apples in every profession, overall we enjoy the best healthcare system in the world. With respect to oncologists and everyone involved in treating cancer patients, as Marina and Sue both noted, it takes a special person to tend to the suffering with kindness, intelligence and the right amount of toughness when necessary.

Overall, it was a wonderful interview in spite of my technical difficulties in the beginning. If you missed it, click below to listen. Thank you to my lovely co-host Lisa Tarves and our beautiful guests!
