Self-Defense and Battered Women Who Kill: A New Framework

By Robbin S. Ogle; Susan Jacobs | Go to book overview

likely to seek egalitarian relationships wherein their independence would be maintained and nurtured, and identify violent relationships as contrary to their egalitarian ideals. It is also possible that such independent individuals might be more likely to simply leave a relationship before it escalates to a homicidal level because they fear their own exposure in a homophobic society and fear the resultant backlash that might further devalue an already marginal gay community. Although all of the above involve pure speculation, with further research we believe such issues might be identified as significant to our understanding of both homosexual and heterosexual battering.
