Tracking apps and emotional abuse
Occasionally I read an article that even a few days later, still chills me to the bone.
MY HUSBAND SPIES ON ME WITH A SMARTPHONE APP - AND I DON'T CARE AT ALL
is terrifying me, absolutely terrifying me still and I cannot get it out of my mind.
If you haven't read the article, it is worth a read. The wife is being tracked so heavily by her husband that I wouldn't be surprised if he knew every BOWEL movement she makes, let alone anything else. He also tracks the children, and they are late teens, he can spy on her texts, listen to her phone calls, ANYTHING.
And she is comfortable with this, she feels safe and loved.
Now personally it would have me filing a restraining order faster than you can say the words, control issues, but she feels happy enough to not only be okay with it, but to share their story with the world.
Side note, it is interesting how he doesn't seem to have the same technology on his phone, if it is there for "safety" as they say, wouldn't it be wise to be able to track him for the sake of safety as well? hmmmmmmmmmmm, strange that.
Now I will not mock this woman, I will not tell her what she should or shouldn't do. How many people have been emotionally blackmailed slowly over the years to think that this behaviour is normal.
"He does it because he loves me" is a sentence that can send chills down my spine nine times out of ten.
But I would like to hear your thoughts on this issue.
Concern for his families safety?
Is it innocent do you think? Or do you feel uneasy even reading the article.
Let me know
