Reading about abusive men and the way they think. Very unsettling and an incredible book so far. Here are my very professional notes.
what book is this?
This is from “Why Does He DO That” by Lundy Bancroft.
I’m so glad I’m seeing more and more Lundy Bancroft quotes on my dash because this book CHANGES THE LIVES OF ABUSE VICTIMS.
The programs run for rehabilitating abusive men through the courts? Bancroft DESIGNED THEM. His programs are replicated ALL OVER THE WORLD.
He literally wrote THE book on abuser rehabilitation.
Here’s a link to a pdf copy. If you haven’t read this book yet, read this book.
Can we talk about how it seems like the entirety of the book is online on PDF, this making it accessible to anyone with an internet connection?
That is how we stop abuse.
We enable everyone to know what it looks like, so that when it happens, they can shut it down.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
This! I’ll accept the “Feel Your Boobies” stuff…but not much else…this time of year, when they say we’re trying to “raise awareness”, just actually does little more than PISS ME OFF…End of a Rant…
Had to unfollow an old work friend on Fb. She constantly complains about her kids. Constantly complains over how the boys wants to spend time with friends. Today she posted that she was “so over this clarinet business” because her daughter practices a lot.
… She’s mad her daughter enjoys playing her instrument. She’s mad her son has friends. I just can’t watch her talk like that. There is never anything happy to say about the kids. She brags about punishing them and embarrasses them in video on Fb. I have thought of saying something but we all know that would lead to me being told to buzz off she knows best.
… She’s triggering and I’m done watching it. My heart goes out to her kids. I hope her daughter continues to play and gets really good because music is a wonderful outlet. And the boy… I hope she doesn’t destroy his spirit.
