Why do abused spouses seek out abusers?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Belle Rose Jan 4. 1 Reply

Revelations by members here, a relative who had an abusive spouse, and (don't laugh) a Doctor Who episode "The Beast Below" all got together in my head and popped out an idea I'd like to bounce off…Continue

Started Nov 25, 2013 0 Replies

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'John Grisham causes ruckus with opinion on online pedophilia'
"True. Ironically the same people who advocate for "traditional" marriage are ignorant of the fact that historically girls (and boys) were married off as young as 13. (Although the marriage was often arranged at an even earlier age.) In…"

Ward Cressin replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'I don't know what to say'
"At his age I wonder if there will be all that much talk about it that he will hear. But assuming he will, I'd say go with as many of the facts as you think he can handle with a strong stress on certain aspects: The person who did it is…"

Ward Cressin replied to aubrey knows nothing *'s discussion 'where when how who why ?'
"There is a huge assumption hidden in what you wrote: that they is a "why" - that someone planned this. "Why" only exists if a creator exists. If there is no creator then there is no "why", no "purpose". The…"

"Consumers of a type of product tend to track new items. I'm sure there is a segment of the pedophilic consumer group who only recycle - submitting pics they got from elsewhere when they need to share. It is those people who would be an asset in…"

Ward Cressin replied to Cato Rigas's discussion 'The Shinto Flower among the Weeds of Religion'
"Does her faith harm anyone? (It seems like the answer is no.) Does her faith cause her to support and/or defend others who harm people? (It seems like the answer is no.) Is she open to learning?  (It seems like the answer is yes.) If those are…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'John Grisham causes ruckus with opinion on online pedophilia'
""On what grounds don't you buy it? Is there some process, perhaps involving porn, that turns otherwise normal persons into pedophiles?" I would need to see a reputable study finding a significant percentage of pedophiles (at least…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'John Grisham causes ruckus with opinion on online pedophilia'
"Yes I have. That's part of why I made the comment about treatment programs. The only one in America trying to prevent pedophiles from offending for the first time is an amateur one run by that 19-year-old. That shows how little is known and…"

"In America the laws are badly written since drawings/artwork can qualify as child porn. It doesn't matter that no child was harmed in any way nor will ever be harmed due to a drawing/artwork - it is still deemed illegal to possess…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'What are some of your guilty pleasures'
"I don't have guilty pleasures. I only feel guilty when I don't do something I know I should be doing. The pleasures in life are what keep me alive - literally (and I do know how to use the word). There hasn't been a week that goes by…"

Ward Cressin replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Fainted on the Cross?'
"I want to ask if this was meant to be for me since I don't see how you got to this from my post - but I don't know of any other post it could be for so the answer is probably yes. I was mentally adding up the facts that most of the people…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'What to do about psychopaths now that we can identify them?'
"Adults already have most of their behavior codified so we'd need to intervene when people are still young. They start with small violations and learn how to avoid incarceration. By the time they are adults they can be excellent at committing…"
