One woman’s desire to cuddle led to an alleged assault, according to the Bradenton Herald.

31-year old Shavonna Rumph of Manatee, Florida pulled a knife on her boyfriend after he allegedly refused to cuddle with her in bed Saturday night. The couple had been drinking together when they retired to bed and the alleged lack of cuddling occurred. The argument became physical and Rumph tore the man’s shirt. The live-in boyfriend attempted to leave the apartment, but Rumph didn’t want him to go as the argument escalated.

Police arrived on the scene and during their investigation found that Rumph “had picked up a kitchen knife as if she was going to use it to hurt or stab” her boyfriend, but according to the police report, the man was not worried about being hurt. Rumph then told deputies that the couple “got into an argument because (her boyfriend) would not cuddle.”

Rumph was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and posted $250 bond, according to the Orlando Sentinel. No word on whether any cuddling occurred upon her release.

Can't wait for the magazine articles that make light of women being assaulted/raped by men.

It is sad that news like this comes out as a joke. How is someone such as miss woolyknickers allowed to joke of something as serious as this, guess they didn't teach her in women studies that men can be victims too. That's a good reason not to buy your magazine, How do you allow this feminist hypocrisy?

Thanks for making light of domestic violence against men.  No doubt had the genders been reversed the cutesy little joke at the end would have been considered too tasteless to even mention.

"No spooning almost led to a knifing."

This tendency to make jokes when men are abused or killed by women is one of the big reasons why I stopped subscribing to Time Magazine. 
Melissa Locker if a lover stabbed you and I laughed would you think that was cute as well? You are a sick sick human being and this Magazine is a disgrace.

If she had been a he and he a she he would have not gotten bail and not gotten such minor charges.


I agree with missing. Apparently domestic violence is acceptable and 'funny' when a woman does it, but if a man punches a girl back heaven and earth move to ruin his life.

This article is written in a terrible light. Poking fun at a woman for assaulting her boyfriend is just as horrible as making light of a man assaulting his girlfriend, but because assaults by women aren't seen as serious as assaults by men, you'll probably get away with it.


Don't treat this stuff lightly. Violence against anyone by anyone is unacceptable and shouldn't be made into a joke.

@jordos  I thought I was the only one that found this being made light of offensive.
