That article from MSNBC was shockingly spot on.Originally Posted by Truce;2543642;
Nothing like producers that flaunt their obvious hand in a "reality" TV show, and I hated Jen, and still think many of her actions were/are immature.
I'm a men's rights activist, (yes - hilarious to some, I'm sure,) and see many cases where women are constantly abusing their significant other, only to claim themselves (generally supported by law enforcement) as victims when said significant other eventually loses it and responds in kind. It also seems that in relationships, "Abuse" has come to represent just about anything that a man does that a female doesn't like. That said, I could not possibly defend Dick's actions toward Jen as not being abusive. Furthermore, it is Dick that goes out of his way to start arguments, then acts as if he has been maliciously attacked. I had been rooting for him during the first few weeks, too.
Jen has her faults, as does this entire cast, but in no way did she deserve what has been handed to her by both the HGs and CBS.
Dick is a man that sets back the cause of someone like myself immensely. He is a spoiled adult who uses verbal and physical intimidation to get his way. He clearly cannot handle his emotions, which is why he gets frustrated to the point of screaming at, or pouring things onto, people so quickly when he is challenged.
CBS' overlooking of these things while punishing Jen to assure her ouster is sad and pathetic. It teaches people that if you make enough money for others, the rules will be bent for you. It's a terrible message to send.
