I obviously don't like Hughes. However, I agree with Oldfan and PheelGoodInc - asking for a "corrected" synopsis is pointless. The controversy is whether or not the summary in the OP was bias and accurate. How do you know Oldfan and PheelGoodInc would provide an unbias and an accurate summary themselves? I mean, they could write about how Hughes believed he was Batman. You won't know until you read the book.
Regarding the "not hitting a girl" comment, someone posted about how his sister could probably kick my ass... That sucks? I'll tell you what you can try.
-Avoid the situation. Yes, she's your sister. Yes you'll piss each other off. But remember that she's your sister and try to be amiable with her. In all likelihood, she hates you because of something you did to her as well.
-If you can't avoid it, walk away before it gets to that point. Yeah, some girls are bitches and avoiding things isn't possible. So GTFO...
-If getting out isn't possible, then restrain her when she starts hitting or spanking you... whatever.
-If she's bigger and stronger than you then you really shouldn't be pissing her off which goes back to the first one.
Ari, it's good to get a girl's viewpoint on things, but I don't agree. I held the door for one of my friends and she said, "I can hold the door for myself." I told her that I knew she could and I didn't care. Guys look after women, not beat up on them.
Everyone's done stuff they shouldn't have, but that's not my problem with Hughes. A small part has to do with him having no remorse... a larger part has to do with him being proud of it.
