Yesterday This Man (who used to abuse his wife) Wrote This About My Podcast and It Tore Me Apart 


This was my response:

 I believe the more we dehumanize abusers, the more we perpetuate the cycle of violence.  They are not monsters and the people who love them would never fall for a “monster.” They’re just fallible human beings like the rest of us  (albeit a little more fucked up ones who need to experiences consequences and also need help). So let’s stop dehumanizing them to feel morally superior. Domestic violence is not a women’s issue. Men suffer from it in all forms as well. Empathy is the only thing that will change this bullshit and forgiveness is the key to freedom… and the main reason I wanted to share this story.
