I was at a sexual assault and relationship violence workshop today at school, required for all freshmen. And some of the examples of relationship abuse made me think of my favorite television show, The Big Bang Theory. These particular examples are not violence, death threats, or rape. They were listed under the category that some people will heartlessly argue is not abuse, which makes it worse for the people who are being abused because they are misunderstood.
And it chilled me to realize that Leonard Hofstadter is being abused by Priya Koothrapali.
