Why Rihanna Couldn’t Leave Chris Brown… Of Pit Bulls, Cobras, Dr. Phil and Oprah

“I’m going to beat the shit out of you when you get home. You wait and see.”

…Chris Brown as said to Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Detailed in court documents read on Oprah’s show, March 6, 2009

“Yes, low self-esteem is a well-known factor in domestic abuse dynamics. But, people don’t stay in abusive relationships because they have low self-esteem. They stay because their partner has threatened to kill them if they leave. They stay because their partner has reinforced that threat with physical abuse and stalking…”

… Anne Caroline Drake speaks of what she knows personally in her article Rihanna: Should You Stay? Should You Leave?

Rihanna Choice

Anne Caroline Drake visited our blog and left words on the Rihanna/Chris Brown saga a few times. I guess you would call Anne an activist against domestic violence and child abuse. She met President Clinton three times and that is three times more than me.

I don’t know if she ever read our articles titled Beat Your Wife In Barbados? You Are Protected From The Police If You Live In A Gated Community! and Do We Need Signs Like This In Barbados? but I think she would appreciate them.

If you care about domestic violence or if you want insight into why women and Rihanna have difficulty leaving abusers, you should read her article on Rihanna and some of the other things she writes. Anne thinks Oprah and Dr. Phil are wrong about domestic violence and she has convinced me.
