Harsh words are the new "abuse." Seriously. At least 20 years ago I dated a woman who steadfastly maintained that she had been abused by her father when she was a child.
The "abuse" turned out to be two incidents:
(1) He once yelled at her for doing something dumb
(2) He once left his bedroom door ajar and she peeked in and saw him getting dressed.
Yes, this was "abuse" -- and she had shrinks who validated that for her.
