9/18/2012—Oh, it’s too late. You can’t stop it now.
AND NOW, AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT…
Just because a person is supposedly as 'pretty' as a supermodel and has the sort of money to buy you expensive presents does not mean you have to stay with them and allow them to beat you, rape you, and tell you every day and night that you somehow want such treatment from them because you're 'omg, so alone'.
When last I looked, that's definitely what real love isn't supposed to look like. Heck, even the somewhat stalkery vampire who watched his girlfriend sleep at night practically begged her not to throw her life away for his sake. He insisted time and time again that he wouldn't turn her into a monster, and wouldn't take her virginity even when she threw herself at him, so...when I see female characters in fanfiction slowly becoming isolated from their family and friends, made to defend themselves in conversation because their so-called 'boyfriends' are firing off accusing remarks at them, even having to give it up to their wrongfully-labeled 'significant others' long before they are ready or can even utter a word of consent...that is NOT romance to me.
Yes, the girl receives pretty, expensive gifts, but only to keep her quiet, submissive, and completely unwilling to report her abuser to the police. Yes, she thinks she absolutely adores her abuser because he keeps hinting to her that no other boy wants her, especially after she's lost her virginity to him and is thus 'spoiled goods'. And yes, the girl is 100% devoted to her abuser, because it's more than hinted on how she'll be physically harmed/killed if she ever does otherwise. To say that this is true love is like saying an axe murderer was saving his victims by ending their lives. I really do know the difference between the two, because I know two people in my life who were affected by such heartless treatment...and because of this, I'm reporting any story that hints of graphic abuse, Stockholm Syndrome, and mind control to the moderators on this site...as well as adopting this idea into my stories, merely to show everyone how wrong and destructive it truly is. Thank you and goodnight.
