Henry used to live with his mother after his parent's separation and his mother had a profound influence on him. His mom didn't have friends who were parents but her friends were motivated feminist types who had boyfriends but were not married.
Herny's mother had a boyfriend who was mean drunk and a pervert. In an interview, Herny talks about how he was sexually assaulted by his mom's boyfriend. He said,
I'd done something wrong and Mom got him to come over and straighten me out. He came in like a hit man and beat the hell out of me with a belt.
He made me strip down naked, then played with me for a minute. Mom was in the living room. It made me very angry.
Henry also said that he have never raised his voice and hand to a female, but he said,
I will hit a guy without thinking twice. Thankfully I am able to curb that anger, but I feel it all the time.

Every once in a while I think I want romance, but it's like holding on to sand. It always slips away. Falling in love does not interest me.
