A Brief Follow-Up To My Abuse Post

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 14.472% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Got a lot of extremely insightful comments on my “An Uncomfortable Reality About Abuse” post yesterday, many of which I’m still processing.  (Mostly over on LiveJournal, but that’s the way it always runs.)  And there will be a follow-up post with further thoughts that I don’t have time for today, but I just wanted to say this:
The comments yesterday did not degenerate into victim-blaming, or misogyny, or misandry, or any of the usual pitfalls that happen when you discuss abuse.  the discussions were sensible, pointed, compassionate, and thoughtful.
This proves that I have one of the best commenting bases in the world, and I’d like to thank all of you for requiring me to hardly ever swing the banhammer.  You guys are the reason I post.  For serious.
Thank you.

    I’m selfishly glad you got such great discussion already, because I was pondering a comment and it would have been unpleasant to write 😛 Hooray for eloquent, thoughtful Livejournallers!
