This is in response to the last woman's questions about her current relationship with an abusive woman. (I am responding from my own experience: I left a four-year relationship with a violent woman and have now been away from her for a year. Believe me when I tell you that I've never been happier.)
Please realize that you are a person worthy of dignity and respect; under no circumstances should you accept any other sort of behavior. If someone hits you, leave them...end of story. There is absolutely no excuse for this behavior. And, although it may be painful to leave someone whom you clearly care so much about, you are better off safe and in control of your own destiny. NO ONE has the right to harm you or demean you in any way. Please learn to love yourself and take care of yourself, and walk away from any person who chooses not to treat you in the same way. You're worth it.

Please, could ladies who have been abused by fellow women come out and share their experiences with us. Secondly, in lesbian relationships is there a partner who is more superior than the other like in the case of a man in heterosexual relationships? Thank you. Lillian

I WAS IN A 4 YEAR RELATIONSHIP WHERE I WAS ABUSED PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND VERBALLY. I WAS MADE TO FEEL LIKE THE LOWEST THING ON EARTH. WHEN I FINALLY LEFT I WAS STILL STALKED AND THREATENED. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO GET AWAY FROM HER THANKS TO SOME REALLY GREAT FRIENDS. I AM NOW IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A WONDERFUL WOMAN WHO DOESNT REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT I WENT THROUGH WITH HER BUT WE ARE WORKING THROUGH IT. IT HAS NOW BEEN 6 YEARS AND I STILL RELIVE SOME OF THE NIGHTMARES OF IT.
