Abusive Texts and Phone Harrassment on the Rise

Trigger warning: This post deals with domestic violence and suicide, and may be triggering for some readers.

Imagine a man messaged his girlfriend a list of reasons why she was “not worthy.”

Imagine that 34-item list accused her of having a “fat gut”, a “loose” vagina and “bad breath”, accused her of “hating men”, and criticising her for her sexual abilities.

Turns your stomach, doesn’t it?
