if you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out.
if you put a frog in warm water and gradually turn up the heat until the water is boiling, the frog will remain there until it dies.
and that is an abusive relationship.
Mostly lobotomized frogs exhibited this behavior, my lord, is this website incapable of properly citing and sourcing information.

This study in no way correlates to abusive relationships and that data has been taken out of context for years to put science behind feelings. There is some ancient data supporting this theory, but there is not a single modern biologist who will back up this old anecdote.
It’s a parable, and while it serves a purpose, can we please stop parading it around like scientific truth.
