And Today in “Are You EFFING KIDDING Me?!”

As if my blood pressure couldn’t get any effing higher: an appeals court in Portugal has spared a man who beat his wife with a spiked club prison time because she brought “dishonor” on the guy by cheating on him.

“Now, the adultery of the woman is a very serious attack on the honor and dignity of the man,” the ruling, signed by Judge Joaquim Neto de Moura, said. “It was the disloyalty and the sexual immorality of the plaintiff that made (the defendant) fall into a profound depression, and it was in this depressive state and clouded by the revolt that carried out the act of aggression, as was well considered in the judgment under appeal.”

I don’t care if Mommy didn’t read this guy the right beddie-bye story when he was a kid and it made his brain all messed up; there is ZERO EXCUSE for this shit!

“This case is far from having the seriousness that, generally, is presented in cases of mistreatment in the context of domestic violence,” the ruling says. “On the other hand, the conduct of the defendant took place in a context of adultery practiced by the plaintiff.”

So she was asking for it? Okay, gotcha.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to binge about six dozen kitten videos. Because if I don’t, I will lose my shit.
