48. For those who wonder how this is a political issue
Keep in mind, Politics is not won in the election booth, it is won by examining a thousand little cultural phenomena that give an indication of how the public thinks, and even better, how to influence that thinking.

If five years from now, Rhianna and Chris are a happy couple, the powers that be will send this message to young women

"See, domestic abuse ain't as big a deal as those crazy liberals tell you it is. Look at Rhianna, she is rich, pretty, famous, has a rich husband, everything you want to be, and she got there because she did not act like some feminist bitch!"

And if you think the conservatives will not try to use that as a platform to make the youth agree with them more, you are out of touch.
