On how the abuser/enabler relationship just, NEVER, ends, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The legislator Kao, of the DDP had been abused by her boyfriend, causing the citizens in this country to get angry over how the loser behaved, because of Kao’s status as a politician, that was what helped her bring out the matter of domestic violence in the society.
I’d been volunteering at the hospital for a decade, and had seen a ton of battered women, whose abusers are normally, their partners, what’s worse was, these batterers chased them to the E.R., then, DRAGGED the victims out the back door, and started, beating on them again. These abusers are, the bullies of their families, only abused their own wives, the weaker women, and young children, very shameful; picking on the elderly, the women, and children, it’s a show of inferiority, but it’d become, a nightmare of, the families.
While the victims of domestic violence, feared that the bad news of the families might get out, or maybe, due to economics, or to keep a family together, and one’s own image, and so, they’d put up with the abuse for many years on end, then, headed over to the hospital to get their injuries documented, to file a restraining order with the courts. There’s a woman who’d come to get treated for abuse, she’d told me that she’d been beaten from when she was younger, I’d asked, “how could you have put up with it this long?” she’d told me, “got used to it”, it was heart wrenching to hear, I couldn’t imagine how she lived through all those, years.
I’m supportive of Kao’s suing her boyfriend, and hoped that the members of the public will be braver, to stand UP and OUT in these situations, because only by reporting the cases, to fight for the rights of our own bodies, will we be able to, put an end to these threats in our lives, to terminate domestic violence.
So, even though, abuse is NEVER anything we should get used to, but, because the victims got trapped in that situation too long, they took it to be the norm, and, stopped fighting, and thus, stopped asking for help, which is precisely W-H-Y, these cases are still, underreported by the victims right now, and besides, it’s usually the spouses, the boyfriends/girlfriends who are hurting the victims, and, as the abusers pouted up their lips, faked that one tiny teardrop out of her/his eyes, then, the abused victims, soften down, and NOT pressed charges, and they’re all, STUCK, in that, vicious cycle, as ENABLERS of their own, ABUSE.
