When [an abusive man] tells me that he became abusive because he lost control of himself, I ask him why he didn’t do something even worse. For example, I might say, “You called her a fucking whore, you grabbed the phone out of her hand and whipped it across the room, and then you gave her a shove and she fell down. There she was at your feet where it would have been easy to kick her in the head. Now, you have just finished telling me that you were ‘totally out of control’ at that time, but you didn’t kick her. What stopped you?” And the client can always give me a reason. Here are some common explanations:
"I wouldn’t want to cause her a serious injury."
“I realized one of the children was watching.”
“I was afraid someone would call the police.”
“I could kill her if I did that.”
“The fight was getting loud, and I was afraid the neighbors would hear.”
And the most frequent response of all:
"Jesus, I wouldn’t do that. I would never do something like that to her.”
The response that I almost never heard — I remember hearing it twice in the fifteen years — was: “I don’t know.”
These ready answers strip the cover off of my clients’ loss of control excuse. While a man is on an abusive rampage, verbally or physically, his mind maintains awareness of a number of questions: “Am I doing something that other people could find out about, so it could make me look bad? Am I doing anything that could get me in legal trouble? Could I get hurt myself? Am I doing anything that I myself consider too cruel, gross, or violent?”
A critical insight seeped into me from working with my first few dozen clients: An abuser almost never does anything that he himself considers morally unacceptable. He may hide what he does because he thinks other people would disagree with it, but he feels justified inside. I can’t remember a client ever having said to me: “There’s no way I can defend what I did. It was just totally wrong.” He invariably has a reason that he considers good enough. In short, an abuser’s core problem is that he has a distorted sense of right and wrong.
I sometimes ask my clients the following question: “How many of you have ever felt angry enough at youer mother to get the urge to call her a bitch?” Typically half or more of the group members raise their hands. Then I ask, “How many of you have ever acted on that urge?” All the hands fly down, and the men cast appalled gazes on me, as if I had just asked whether they sell drugs outside elementary schools. So then I ask, “Well, why haven’t you?” The same answer shoots out from the men each time I do this exercise: “But you can’t treat your mother like that, no matter how angry you are! You just don’t do that!”
The unspoken remainder of this statement, which we can fill in for my clients, is: “But you can treat your wife or girlfriend like that, as long as you have a good enough reason. That’s different.” In other words, the abuser’s problem lies above all in his belief that controlling or abusing his female partner is justifiable….
First off, thank you anon!
Thought I’d kill two birds with one stone here:
It would be hard to explain how I did the shirt without doing a tutorial on it, which, unless I end up wanting to remake the cosplay, I just do not have the time/money for, I’m afraid ):
(Copying and pasting a previous response)
[Basically] I got a tanktop that I owned and I just used it as a pattern and added the collar on.
You could find a good turtleneck on ebay [and just alter it] I’m sure! That’s one way to do it efficiently. I would suggest investing in some interfacing to make the collar stick up though.
As for the material, I would suggest going with a cotton knit or some sort of spandex or lycra. The key thing for Korra’s shirt is for it to be stretchy because it has to hug her torso and fit snugly. I would also suggest investing in some elastic thread so that it can hold up with the stretchy fabric without snapping!
Q:HOW IS YOUR SKIN SO FUCKING FLAWLESS,?
I’M JUST ALL ABOUT SKINCARE. I HAVE A P SET REGIMEN, BUT BASICALLY JUST LIKE,
TAKE OFF YOUR MAKEUP AND WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE YOU GO TO BED AND WHEN YOU WAKE UP. MOISTURIZE. TRY NOT TO WEAR HEAVY MAKEUP ALL THE TIME SO YOUR SKIN CAN BREATHE. OPT FOR BB CREAM INSTEAD OF FOUNDATION ON THE DAILY. TRY TO CHANGE YOUR PILLOW CASE EVERY FEW DAYS SO YOUR FACE HAS A CHANCE TO REST ON A FRESH, CLEAN SURFACE. AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE A TON
IT’S P SIMPLE THANK ANON
