Rihanna and responsibility

Rihanna and Chris Brown made it clear at last night's Grammy Awards that they are once again a couple, some 4 years after he beat the hell out of her. She "loves" him and believes that he deserves another chance.

She is an adult, and it is her prerogative. However, as a celebrity, she is also a role model for girls and young women. And her actions suggest to impressionable young people that it's OK (perhaps even glamorous) to choose to be with a man who has a history of violence against women. That is not only sad, it's irresponsible.
