Dear Straight Talk: I grew up with my stepfather regularly knocking my mother around when he was drunk and being emotionally abusive to both her and me.
She would never stand up to him or leave him and I hated both of them for it. In college, I joined a group dedicated to ending rape and abuse, but I find myself emotionally abusive to women who try to get close to me. I am ashamed to talk to my friends about this. Please help. — Anonymous, San Francisco
