Men always think in terms of fight or flight. In fact the most common instinct in the face of this kind of threat is to freeze. If she didn’t fight, if she didn’t scream, if she was silent and numb, it’s because she was petrified. If she went with him quietly, it’s because she was afraid for her life. And not just her life. Yours, and Nancy’s, and the baby’s.
