Why do abused spouses seek out abusers?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Belle Rose Jan 4, 2014. 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

After reading the article about the drug induced atrocity I echoed the idea of another's comment about the article and went looking for better news. To my surprise I found some amazing good news. It…Continue

Ward Cressin replied to Melvinotis's discussion 'What would happen if humans grew up without a context.'
"Oops, the formatting seems to have been lost from my post above. It was getting late and I forgot to double check it. But hopefully it will be obvious enough what the changes are."

Ward Cressin replied to Melvinotis's discussion 'What would happen if humans grew up without a context.'
"Don't have the ship grow en route since this creates a couple problems. First is where the matter comes from and dark matter isn't a good answer. Second is the fact that as the mass grows so does the energy needed to maneuver, slow and…"

Ward Cressin replied to Physeter's discussion 'Mini post: That weird question, "How are you doing?"'
"A single line about your situation is very far from whining. As for mentioning the idea of asexuality, I did so since not everyone knows about it. If you're not paralyzed by anxiety like me during such situations, you could ask your…"

Ward Cressin replied to Physeter's discussion 'Mini post: That weird question, "How are you doing?"'
"Well, that's more detail than the initial question deserves but I usually annoyed people by actually answering truthfully even if generalizing my answer. But then I tend to be more literal since I'm bad at understanding social cues and…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'If it became possible to live forever...then what?'
":) Exactly; this is a cool idea but fraught with many problems for implementation. Another problem with some of what I mentioned is that different countries have different laws regarding homicide but I proposed that we would enforce a single uniform…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'If it became possible to live forever...then what?'
"Zero population growth would be pretty much mandatory and probably require reversible sterilization. If the reversible sterilization was not possible then a strict limit of one offspring per person with mandatory (nonreversible) sterilization after…"

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…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'John Grisham causes ruckus with opinion on online pedophilia'
"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 (Kaito) 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…"

Ward Cressin replied to Unseen's discussion 'John Grisham causes ruckus with opinion on online pedophilia'
"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 Physeter's discussion 'Testing the waters—and the waters aren’t good.'
