This is very first time I have ever felt so WTBLOODYHELL Jezebel when reading an article, Chris Brown or otherwise. I make no excuses for an abuser, or a person who's made really terrible decisions in some areas of his life. However, any person with a modicum of sense can see that this 24 year old has accepted his abuse as 'normal' a country/southern 'rite of passage' if you will and I for one am embarrassed not at Jezebel, per se, but at Doug Barry and the editor that mistakenly approved his entire article.
So many young ppl have been traumatized by sexual abuse that for some it may seem the norm. Brown's account, whether 8yrs old or 12 years old, by an older females would give rise to his nonchalance on abusing women and the lack of respect for his body, not knowing how many women he's been with, so long as he left good sexual impression.
Shame on you, Doug.
