OK, enough already

One more post about fairy tales, only to say that if reading fairy tales predisposes one to submissiveness and victimhood--well--what about the perpetrators of domestic violence? What did they read?

Does this story blame the victims, in other words?

Just asking.

Now I'm done.

It sure seems to blame victims. But maybe it's just saying they are more prone to accept abuse rather than fight back or seek better relationships.

Still, it does seem simplistic. "Reading fairy tales" sounds absurdly broad (maybe that's just the publicity talking), and how on earth does one measure this or reduce it to a statistic?
