Given the controversy about Assange and his personal life this article about how we forgive the misogynistic behaviour of our icons makes interesting reading.
I hadn't read anything about Norman Mailer before in regard to his hatred of women. He comes across as a real A**ehole!

Obviously there are hundreds of examples that never get the headlines but in many cases, just as in the cases described, the "hero" is forgiven, the victim attacked!
