The only time the private parts of someone's life are relevant is when they're affecting public performance.

It helps you become a really well-rounded person, the more you can show from different perspectives. The arts show us empathy, which is so important.
Our culture encourages women to nurture men, making it predictable that many experience a seductive empathy for abusive men, as well as the misguided hope that love can obliterate an ugly past.
