Are girl kids that dangerous?

You ever wonder how abusing women gets started in the mind of boys--try this on for size from Fred's Column.

“An 11-year-old girl who threw a stone at a group of boys pelting her with water balloons is being prosecuted on serious assault charges in California. Maribel Cuevas was arrested in April in a police operation which involved three police cars and a helicopter.” *
He goes onto write:
We are a nation frightened of our daughters of eleven? Are girl kids that dangerous? Does any other country, anywhere, fear its daughters? Give me a break.

Plese let us know what you think of a dangerous girl like Maribel.


  1. SO TRUE!
    my 7 1/2 year old daughter is being attacked by bullies her own age - they are malicious, egotistical, sadistic and I hope they learn empathy before its too late.

    And doing battle with the school who wants to turn a blind eye is no picnic.

  2. You hang in there Barbara!!! I hate the bully stuff. You have some great links from your site on the bullys. I bleive abuse is a form of bullying-grown men bullying their women. (Or women their men in some instances). I want to see the day when bullys are seen for what they are and stopped..way to stop? Stand up for own rights and simply don't let it occur--how will you keep your daughter from seeing herself as powerless and a victim? Its tricky, isn't it?

  3. VERY tricky - I don't want to protect her totally from life & from being the fantastic woman I know she will be - on the other hand I was badly bullied & beaten in school (by peers and teachers) so I am trying hard not to project that onto this situation. What galls me is how the schools try to MINIMIZE it all (more abuse).

    I do think that abuse by men (physical, verbal, emotional) is a form of male supremacy & misogyny in action. Abuse and even sex addiction shows a lot of overt & covert rage against women.

    Here's a post that illustrates that point:

    Of course, I could get into political & government bullying - which also tries to whitewash it. As if being a bully is a desireable behavior. blech

    Trying to be a good mother is hard enough without bullies.


Please be respectful in how you use language.
