FAQ Highlight — If I tell people about my husband’s abusive behavior, am I gossiping?
“When a victim starts disclosing what the abuser has been doing and asks for help, abusers and their allies commonly accuse the victim of gossiping. Abusers want their evil to remain in the darkness. Evil loves darkness. The gossip charge is made to support the cloak of secrecy and to shut victims up. If you expose the evil, you are charged with gossip and with lying.” (Barbara Roberts, from the post The false accusation of gossip)
