Stalking and harassment is a real issue for women. One in 6 women will be stalked in their life. Over 1 million women are stalked each year in the US.
Over the weekend, Phillip Thomas drove from South Carolina to stalk and take Sonya Deville hostage. He almost succeeded. He got inside her house, but an alarm went off which alerted her.
This begs the question… How stupid do you have to be to try to kidnap a WWE wrestler? These athletes are tough and can… well… put the smackdown on you!
In this case, that wasn’t necessary. Sonya got out of the house, called the police and they caught Phillip – which was probably the best thing that could happen to him in this situation.
There’s a deep part of myself that wishes he would have just gotten the smack down in the living room. To know you don’t mess with a woman.
It’s that sick part of my mind that finds this so funny. And I find it funny because this is such a real issue. I’m a dad of 4 girls. I’m a bit protective! And I want guys to know that even if my daughter isn’t a WWE star, you don’t touch my girls. You don’t stalk any girl.
For some reason SOME men (we are not all pigs) have this view that they must “own,” control, and use a woman. Our society pushes this mindset on guys. In “guy” movies, women are also cast to be sex objects around the men. Porn often reinforces this feeling. It just doesn’t end.
Many of us guys would NEVER stalk a woman. But, in the privacy of our room we will stalk a woman, using her image for our “pleasure,” not seeing her as a human. In our relationships we expect her to support us rather than being willing to support her dreams, passions, and heart.
We can’t fix all of this. And we definitely can learn to NOT stalk a WWE star. The harder part might be within our own life and relationship.
