You've probably realized, abuse is a dirty topic not to happily discussed in the public sphere. Victims are blamed. Cases are dismissed. And perpetrators are enabled. But what's the point of our ignorance towards domestic abuse? Is there a reason why we tend to limit the scope of "abuse," blame-shift, and willfully forget?
