I've been thinking a lot about abuse. Of course, most of us know about the domination, exploitation and need for control meted out by patriarchy, but I wonder if we have actually normalized many abuses? Abuse in the home, in the workplace, in our culture and churches. Perhaps we accepted it unconsciously because so many of us are conditioned by religions who tell us to make noble sacrifices or tolerate suffering in silently? I wonder if we're calling it out when we see it - often and loudly - or if we've become conditioned to quietly accept the abuse with little push back? That's what I'm exploring tonight.
