I Am Scared For These Young Women  
Trigger Warning: domestic violence.

Dear Young Ladies Who Love Chris Brown So Much They Would Let Him Beat Them

Ladies, please re-read the police report and really think about if you would want to go through that, any of it. Chris Brown didn't seem "hot" to Rihanna, he seemed fucking terrifying and she probably thought she might die. I've been there and thought so too. Please don't tweet that you would like to be beaten by anyone, because someone in your own life might take you up on it.

Police report: http://ow.ly/937Ln "The assault caused Robyn F.'s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle."

I have to wonder what messages (including the silence from friends who hear them say these things) these women are receiving to make them thing it is in ANY way okay to say such things!!!!!

Yes it is disturbing that they think it is anything to joke about. :(

Yeah, I liked Rhianna's performance but had absolutely zero interest in seeing anything he had to do, talent or no. It disturbs the hell out of me that he could still be so well-liked publicly after being so atrocious to women.

I didn't see anything so incredible about his performance that justified rubber-stamping what he did and ignoring the effect on Rihanna and all other women who've been abused. It was very triggering.
