Communication is difficult even when everyone largely agrees on everything. I would say, as the thread often verges on derailing on the topic, that while it may in some contexts be useful to try to understand the mindset behind these abhorrent acts, I would also understand that that's a topic many would not care to have discussed here; as most people should realize, it can be difficult to have productive conversations about the 'why' of people being horrible gits because in everyday life those conversations often are just searches for excuses and ameliorations, even if that's not what posters are trying to do here. So I'll say that when people point out that in an abuser's own head, they're not at fault, or that crass humor exists outside of a bludgeon to discomfit and assault people with, that's probably a legitimate conversation to be had, just maybe not here.
