Battered Person Syndrome

Battered Person syndrome

The syndrome develops in response to a three-stage cycle found in [] violence situations. First, tension builds in the relationship. Second, the abusive partner releases tension via violence while blaming the victim for having caused the violence. Third, the violent partner makes gestures of contrition. However, the partner does not find solutions to avoid another phase of tension building and release so the cycle repeats. The repetition of the violence despite the abuser’s attempts to “make nice” results in the abused partner feeling at fault for not preventing a repeat cycle of violence. However, since the victim is not at fault and the violence is internally driven by the abuser’s need to control, this self-blame results in feelings of helplessness rather than empowerment. The feeling of being both responsible for and helpless to stop the violence leads in turn to depression and passivity. This learned depression and passivity makes it difficult for the abused partner to marshal the resources and support system needed to leave.[7]

Feelings of depression and passivity may also be created by lack of social support outside of the abusive situation.

Describes Gandhi’s philosophy and behaviour with respect to Muslims very accurately. That is why Hindus must shun it completely — it is the path of self-destruction. Gandhi’s philosophy is rooted not in any great insight into human nature, but in self-guilt and the fear of the bully.

  1. Got it. The leader of our freedom strugle was not Gandhiji. It was Nathuram Godse who led us to freedom from the British.

      You love Gandhi? He said when someone is trying to rape a woman and you are there, you should not lift a finger to help her. Rather, you should bang your head against a wall so that seeing your plight, the rapist will take mercy on you and let go of the woman. Pls do this when someone is trying to do molest some woman of your family. Put your money where your mouth is, otherwise cut this crap of Gandhi worship. You are a monotheist, aren’t you? Our God is true, your god is false! Oink! Oink!

  2. Can you quote a reference to what you attributed to Gandhi?
    And FYO I am not a monotheist. In fact I am as good a polytheist as you can get. I worship all kinds of Gods in their various forms like snake, monkey, cow, a piece of stone, a lump of clay and even Lingams.

    P.S. 1st time you didn’t allow this comment. Did you feel uncomfortble?

      You are a strange polytheist who doesn’t see anything wrong in monotheism which denies the right of polytheism to exist. It is like a cop who doesn’t see anything in wrong in the number of rapists increasing in the society. Either you are a monotheist with a false identity or you are a goofball.

      Sure I can quote a reference and also many other fantastic quotes of Gandhi for your pleasure. But tell me first, are you willing to put your money where your mouth is as far as Gandhi’s philosophy is concerned? Or are you those types who recommend Gandhism to others but refuse to practice it themselves?
