teens girls stand by their man.

Interesting yet apalling, this article from the NY Times reports teen girl's opinions about what happened between Chris Brown and Rihanna and whose fault it really was.

Read it here.

I read Mark Harris' commentary in Entertainment Weekly about this, and what he had to say resonated with me.

"What lessons should we draw from this? Okay, I'll play. Here's what they call the ''teachable moment'': Don't hit women. And don't give men who hit you a chance to hit you again, ever. But if we really need Rihanna and Chris Brown, or any celebrities at all, to teach us that, we are in seriously bad shape.

I think we're in seriously bad shape. I hear so many of my teenage clients blaming Rhihanna for "rumored reasons" why "he should have hit her." It makes me very, very sad. I hope to teach my own daughter better.
