Things which constitute assault: drugging your girlfriend

A man in Germany has been given a 500 Euro fine for drugging his girlfriend's tea so he could play video games all night.

This is what male entitlement looks like: believing you have the right to assault your girlfriend so you can play video games all night and then only receiving a 500 Euro fine. The fact that the man himself was on drugs at the time does not mitigate his behaviour - it increases the likelihood of him causing serious long-term, physical damage to his then girlfriend.

We need a judicial system which challenges male violence and male entitlement ; not one which excuses their behaviour.
