Lovelyish commenters have been weighing in with their thoughts on the recent Chris Brown and Rihanna controversy. There seems to be two main schools of thought.
SCHOOL OF THOUGHT #1: IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL
Who really cares though. People need to get over it because at the end of the day that’s completely up to them. If you don’t like it it doesn’t matter, they don’t even know you exist.
I understand the whole incident but if she can move on from it why are we still so upset over it. That’s their personal lives and I’m sick of people complaining about it. Rihanna was strong and choose to forgive him, I don’t know if i would be able to do it as fast as she did, but it was 3 years ago so it’s not like it happened a couple weeks ago.
I am not promoting what Chris Brown did, I know it was dead wrong. But if you wanna go boycott his music and do whatever go ahead up to you. What if you were told you wouldn’t get hired because of your personal life?
Leave their lives alone. You know she’s on Chris Brown’s song too and I love both the remixes

SCHOOL OF THOUGHT #2: IT’S A BIG DEAL
People keep saying they don’t understand what the big deal is about Chris Brown being stigmatized years after he sent Rihanna to the hopsital. The fact of the matter is when we see things like domestic abuse and don’t emphasize the dangers of it, people are going to feel like it’s acceptable behavior, or at the very least that people will look the other way.
It wasn’t that long ago that laws were made that could protect women from abuse. it was only in 1993 that violence against women (was) included as a human rights violation by the United Nations at its International Conference on Human Rights in Vienna. The World Bank recognizes battering as a significant economic problem in terms of health costs. Marital rape law and stalking law passed in Missouri.
That is, marital rape was still legal in Missouri in 1993.
So what’s the big deal? A lot of people don’t see abuse as a big deal but it’s a huge problem and as the Rihanna has shown, the issues of abuse go way deeper than being dependent on your abuser financially.
If we say it’s not a big deal anymore than at what point can we say rape is forgivable or child abuse or murder? These things f***ing matter, that’s why.

What do you think… are the latest Rihanna/Chris Brown developments no big deal? Or are the fundamental issues a big deal after all?
