I really hate when TV shows and movies portray abused woken as little sniveling women who are so scared of everything and refuse to fight back even to protect their children. I know that abuse is a horrible and scary thing to go through, trust me I know, but there has to be a point when enough is enough. My ex almost killed me more than once and I fought back with everything that I had. He would get wasted and start being violent and I would go toe-to-toe with him so that I could make sure he wouldn’t hurt anybody else around, I couldn’t even imagine what I would do if we had had any children.
It just rubs me the wrong way every time I see that kind of scene on TV. I’ve been through it and it doesn’t look like that.
