BuzzFeed Provides Much-Needed Look At Emotional Abuse

As far as movies, tv and other media go, we’ve seen a few abusive relationships, right? Typical scenarios on a very limited spectrum, usually husbands or boyfriends landing punches on their wives or girlfriends, calling them stupid for not having dinner ready…

Thankfully, BuzzFeed just released something much less obvious: a 14-minute short that shows how emotional abuse manifests in the early stages of a relationship. The video—which features a lesbian couple, a developing romance between a heterosexual couple, and a best friend dynamic between the victim and the hetero woman—is both realistic and believable.

Props to writers Ali Vingiano and Brittany Ashley for the scene where the besties (played by themselves) share a blunt on the beach. Ashley’s character is pushed to stop making excuses for her partner after her friend expresses concern over her girlfriend’s misplaced jealously issues.

Recognition of abuse accomplished. #RightInTheFeels
