Uproar over using DV as a gimmick

Glenn Sacks is writing about the uproar caused by a politician saying that women use domestic violence as a gimmick in divorce proceedings, as I remarked on below.

Yes, of course women use domestic violence as a gimmick. It is the main purpose of domestic violence proceedings. I don't think that I've ever seen a domestic violence complaint that was not used as a gimmick.

Meanwhile, People mag reports:
Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

The pair have reunited almost three weeks after Brown, 19, allegedly battered the "Umbrella" singer on Feb. 8, a source tells PEOPLE.

"They're together again. They care for each other," says the source. The on-again couple are currently spending time together at one of Sean "Diddy" Combs's homes, on Miami Beach's Star Island.
Brown still faces criminal charges.

Beware of saying things like this: "I don't think that I've ever seen a domestic violence complaint that was not used as a gimmick." Our opponents claim you daddy activists don't care about abused women. You make it seem true. There ARE real victims of dv, of both genders.

Your comment " I don't think I have ever seen a domestic violence complaint... etc. " exposes your problem. You filter everything through your own experience as though that were the only valuable data. I would think, that as a scientist, you would have a better grasp proleptic argument.
It is just possible that the information on your blog and your own understanding of your proceedings is fatally flawed, and the appeals court saw through it.
