This is an interesting piece about Charlie Sheen’s rantings and history of abusive behavior. The author argues that Sheen has long gotten away with treating the women in his life with violence and had it excused or chuckled at in a “boys will be boys” way. An especially interesting perspective is added by Jennifer Pozner, author of Reality Bites Back regarding the way that reality TV has trained us to view women.
