Not so inspirational is the current commentary about Rihanna's decision to return to Chris Brown. God bless her, many women do the same thing for the same reasons she gives in her Rolling Stone interview. It's a bad decision- she probably knows it. Battered women often feel ashamed and blame them selves for their situation. Asking, "Why is she going back to him?" will make it harder for her to leave if she should. Focusing on her choices opposed to asking Chris Brown if he is capable of a relationship without violence comes dangerously close to accepting his violent behavior and blaming the victim.
I hope that Chris Brown has changed his ways and that they are happy together. And she is safe. If not, I hope she packs her jewels and splits as soon as she catches herself thinking, "I'm a strong woman. I can handle this."
