I haven't had your formative experiences, thankfully, but I agree with you.

That said, I confess I feel much the same way about people currently in abusive relationships. I understand - really, I do - about battered syndrome, so some people need a lot of support to get their head out of the mindset that this is "normal." And some people are in situations where leaving means potentially living on the streets, or being in peril of their lives, and might include their children, and obviously they need a strategy more comprehensive than "Just leave." But I find it very frustrating that people who keep going back to an abuser, or finding a new one, over and over again, when they don't have to, are supposed to be given unlimited patience and sympathy and any kind of reality check is "victim-blaming."
