i just finished reading...

why does he do that? inside the minds of angry and controlling men by lundy bancroft

-buy on thriftbooks

obviously difficult subject matter but i genuinely think this should be required reading for anyone at any stage of life. especially considering the way in which domestic abuse and abusive relationships have been in discussion recently (re: amber heard, marilyn manson, brad pitt, etc.) with so many people falling for the myths and misunderstandings the author discusses. i think we could have avoided so much of the, frankly, deeply embarrassing and horrific social media fiasco towards amber heard if more people had read and understood this book.

trigger warnings for domestic abuse, violence, emotional manipulation

omg also here's an amazing browser extention that tells you if copies of books are available at your local library!!
