AJ chocking Connie. It's not that serious

Postby YRFan99 » Thu Aug 08, 2013 4:20 pm

First and foremost remember this is a Soap Opera drama is what keeps us watching.

Nobody has the right to put there hands on anybody vice vers men and women.

This is good entertainment. I am loving the drama going on.

We escape reality by watching tv, so everyone chill.

Yesterday we have senior abuse, today a man laying his hands on woman,
I guess "good entertainment" is subjective.

I haven't seen anyone really saying anything about AJ choking Connie its more about AJ whining about his failed life. a man should never put his hands on a woman but your right this is a soap and this isn't about man on woman violence its about AJ blaming someone else for his problem. If Connie was a man he would have done the same thing.

I don't think so.
AJ wouldn't lay his hand on someone that could actually hit back.



While I love soapy goodness as much as the next person, some things are not entertaining, IMO.

Sam's "rape", Michael's rape, a younger woman slapping a senior, a man strangling a woman...... wouldn't want to see a pedophile s/l and many others but, to each their own.

then why do you even watch. Soaps are not wine and roses, rapes, murders, kidnappings etc. is part of the story telling no one is glorifying it. and AJ was pretty pissed I think he would have gone after a guy the same way this is not a story about violence against women its about AJ's insecurities and uncontrollable rage. Connie was just the easy excuse for him. I never said I like watching violence but I except that sometimes it is necessary for the story. you know like when sonny the mobster does his thing.

AMEN, SISTER! I can not believe another woman would applaud violence against another woman, but I guess if that is what you're used to then that is all you know. Sad.

No one is applauding violence against women. Its been said that he had no right to put his hands on her but it is a soap and worse things have been done and in the end someone pays and besides how was sonny suppose to justify waving his gun around.

When Michael got crap in the head, I took a week off.
Watching a child in a coma and a mother's pain is not entertainment, TO ME.
Also Jake's death was not entertainment for me.

I watch because 95% of the time I like it. That's good enough odds for me.

A man choking a woman is not violence towards woman?
If Sonny was there and not Connie, there is no way on earth he would have unloaded on Sonny, grabbed his neck, even though he thought Sonny was behind Connie running the story.

By saying "it's no big deal" IS glorifying violence against woman.

We should all be appalled that AJ would dare put his hands around Connie's neck.
