There are always exceptions to every rule, but it is absolutely taken that the majority of women ( or men ) living in coercive relationships are there because they are being manipulated and most strong and confident people are not easily manipulated.

Well, that is a rather bald way of saying something much more subtle, but the essence is the same.

Yes, there are women who sleep with someone and/or take harassment because they are lacking in confidence and self-worth. There are even women who are in abusive relationships and do not leave, or are persuaded to return and that isn't because they are strong and confident people, is it?

But sometimes they are.

I see, thank you. Iíll restrict my posting to one thread though to avoid repetition.

Which one? I prefer not to duplicate too.

So they just sleep with anyone or take harassment  because because they have no confidence, can't say no?

(Members only doesn't mean really private anyway, as there are so many who never post anything.)

Yes I realised that but I didnít know that made a difference.

The difference is that some members may not feel comfortable posting their views and opinions in a public thread where they can be seen by anyone who chooses to look

There are indeed two threads on this topic.  However, the other one is within the 'members only' part of the forum whereas this one, as it says at the top of the page, is public and open to everyone

Well then, you were clearly strong and confident enough to make a stand. There are some who are perfectly aware of what is right and what is wrong but do not have the strength and confidence to handle a difficult situation.

They are not to be dismissed and derided. They need support and good for them if they now are finding the strength to stand up and complain at last.

Is it not possible for those lucky enough to be strong and confident to have a little compassion for those who are not and who often suffer indignities and difficulties because of it?

So they just sleep with anyone or take harassment  because because they have no confidence, can't say no? You don't know me or know the measure of my compassion any more than I know yours so please don't assume.
