Myths about Domestic Violence


sandyfaithking reblogged this on multicolouredsmartypants and commented:

I remember looking at a poster about domestic abuse and thinking "he only does x,y and z, but he doesn't do all of those things, so it can't be abuse". I think the worst thing, though, when you're trying to come to terms with what you have been through, is when people somehow blame you, the victim. Even if not overtly, they make assumptions. I felt so ashamed. I felt guilty for what had happened. Also there is a lack of understanding of the nature of coercion and manipulation which is a huge part of domestic abuse and has just as bad an impact as actual physical violence. Also, and this is really important: IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PHYSICAL TO BE ABUSIVE. Sexual abuse, coercion, emotional abuse, etc., are just as destructive and just as wrong and NO ONE, male or female, should feel obliged to put up with it out of a misplaced sense of 'Christian' obligation.
