"The Grammar of Male Violence"

I hate that I haven't been able to find the time to post lately. Especially since there's never any shortage of stuff to write about. For now, though, in lieu of a real post, what I can do is point you to a really great article by Jennie Ruby called The Grammar of Male Violence, all about how the general discourse about "violence against women" tends to highlight the woman's victim status while rendering her male perpetrator(s) invisible.
