These damn double standards

Woman hits her spouse, spouse defends himself, husband gets accused of spousal abuse...

I hate liberals...


Oprah is being called out by a number of media outlets for her alleged double standard regarding domestic violence.

At the center of the controversy is Debra Winans, ex-wife of the 47-year old Grammy Award winning gospel and R&B singer BeBe Winans. In February, a story made headlines that BeBe had shoved Debra to the ground in front of their two kids (ages 10 and 13) after a verbal dispute regarding custody issues. A domestic charge violence against BeBe is pending until a court hearing in 2010.

Oprah has been very vocal about her zero-tolerance policy regarding domestic abuse following the highly publicized Chris Brown and Rihanna incident. On February 8, 2009, after a Grammy Awards pre-show party, the two singers had a physical altercation in a vehicle that left Rihanna bloodied and bruised. After the incident, Oprah's told 'Access Hollywood' that "Domestic violence is something that I wouldn't tolerate. Period," and subsequently banned Chris Brown from appearing on her show. Ironically, BeBe's arrest came only one day before Oprah aired a special on her show about domestic violence.

Just recently, Winfrey invited BeBe Winans on her show to host "Oprah's Karaoke Challenge," an 'American Idol' style competition to find the nation's best karaoke singer. Winans was brought on to promote his new reunion album with his sister CeCe Winans, 'Still.'

Many wonder if Winfrey was simply unaware of the charges against Winans. Others see it as a blantant double standard. TMZ recently spoke to Debra Winans, who said she is "hurt by Oprah's decision to have BeBe on the show." Winfrey has yet to issue a public response.

You dont here femminists addressing these type of double standards. Only hear about the double standards that favor men.

No Georgie, you a liberal...
What does liberal or conservative have to do with anything?

You are saying if a woman hits you then you should be protected by the law to give her an azz whooping.

No one can retaliate and be protected from prosecution (unless in FL and a few other States where stand your ground is law of the land).

Lets talk about the real sickness and not this symptom.

A lot of the problems people have is due to bad personal choices. I have been with a whole lot of women.....a whole lot.....and not ONE of them has ever raised a hand at me. That's because I don't associate with viragoes who would be inclined to get physical in order to work out differences.

So the double standard here is that Oprah banned Chris Brown because of his assault on Rhianna but didn't ban Bebe because of what?:confused

According to that piece you quoted he was scheduled for a hearing in 2010. What was the outcome?

Just trying to get my head around your logic here.......:grin:
