Emmy, I've been depressed for over 20 years and lose every good thing I touch. Believe me, I've hurt a lot of people out of frustration and have made big mistakes.
Coming from Texas, where one of the most evil hate crimes took place a few years back and was beyond human comprehension, it still burns in my memory.
Evil must not be written off or excused. Out of all the words in this or other languages he could have posted under, look at what he chose.
I find it despicable and sick.
I'm proud of you for reporting it. It was the right thing to do. Listen closely to friends and associates when you're with them. If you hear similar things said, protect yourself and get away from them. If a guy on a first date says all his ex's were________.(Fill in bad name)
Pretend you're sick and ask to be taken home. Evil is all too real and women have suffered as much as anyone. (Fall off pedestal, speech over)
Take care of #1.
If it's true that this man has been depressed for 20 years, I would imagine he's pretty angry about all the loss he has experienced in relationships, jobs, family, et. I know that depression can cause one to think emotionally, irrationally...the combination may have led to displacing his anger about his own life difficulties onto other people.
