Pajamas Media advice columnist Dr. Helen Smith interviewed me recently on the subject of the Violence Against Women Act, the way our legal system handles domestic violence, and related issues--see Fighting for Men's Rights (Pajamas Media, 10/8/07). Readers can comment on their experiences with domestic violence laws by clicking here. Several prominent feminist bloggers are unhappy over my interview. These include: 1) Leading feminist blogger Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon, who says: "Glenn...makes it clear in this interview, he's on your side if you're angry that your stupid, broken wife resists your abuse. He condemns restraining orders, because they make it harder to get to your wife in order to beat her."
