This quote really bothered me- It was in response to a woman asking if anyone had had a black eye. Her boss assumed that hers had come from her husband, and even though it had not, I commend his concern in taking the responsibility to ask.
"What a jerk to just assume that's how you got it! Unless you come to work bruised up all the time, then it's no one's business! Besides, one time I punched my husband in the face during a dream I was having (I swear I really was asleep!) and no one gave him a hard time for that! (In fact he works w/ mostly women, so they probably loved it! :)"
The reason that this bothers me SO much is because often a victim of abuse does not show physical signs of abuse, or they are rare... And when they are overlooked by people around them, the abuse goes on.
Do you know what constitutes as CDV?
