This 1949 Cadillac has an awesomely shiny $382.95 paint job. That is, it’s been covered in exactly 38, 295 pennies. Affectionately called “Penny,” she was customized by and belongs to the Thompson family. The pennies were affixed to car one at a time using silicone glue over a 6 week period during the summer of 1999. Altogether they add over 200 lbs to the vehicle’s weight. All but four of the pennies were attached head side up. They’re all American pennies and include one 1817 Large Cent coin, 2 error pennies and 4 1943 steel pennies.
We love that the Thompsons display their Penny Caddy with a sign that reads “Please Touch the Car!” We’d certainly want to.

Nor do genuinely decent men, or classy men, or men with wives/girlfriends, or in fact MOST living breathing men. The few that do? Find where their mother, sister, girlfriend and/or wives live and rebuke them over teaching their barbarian some manners. End of story

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim.
Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.
One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.
The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.
This is an important post but I had to weigh in on that last comment.
This is not separate from the feminist agenda. And you’re not a true feminist if you think it is. A society that won’t accept the idea of females hurting males as a problem is not an equal one. “Men must be the attackers and women the victims. Men are too strong to be hurt by a woman.”
Strength and violence are not exclusively male, and the ability to be hurt is not exclusively female.
Feminists want to abolish all gender stereotype, even those that benefit women.
