The Abuse Paradox

I put a long post in reply to OneSTDV's post about Chris Brown.  It started out small, but, I just got carried away.

I have to wonder, would any attempt to counsel women to understand the danger of provoking men verbally in order to help them reduce the risk of physical assault be considered blaming the victim?  Does avoiding such a strategy and allowing women to act as if they have an invisible shield from men's violence increase the instance of violence in relationships and help justify the existence of the anti-violence agenda?
