    Action Alert Psychology Today Praises Woman Who Murdered Her Husband as Great Revenge

    Action Alert: Psychology Today Praises Woman Who Murdered Her Husband as ‘Great Revenge’

    February 1st, 2010 by Glenn Sacks, MA, Executive Director

    Fathers & Families is sending the protest letter below to Psychology Today via regular US mail and email. To add your signature to the letter and send it to Psychology Today, simply click here and fill out the fields.

    Letter from Fathers & Families to Psychology Today:

    Kaja Perina
    Editor-in-Chief
    Psychology Today
    115 E. 23rd St., 9th Floor
    New York, NY 10010
    212-260-7210

    Dear Ms. Perina & Psychology Today:

    In the shockingly irresponsible article “Sweet Revenge” (Psychology Today, January/February 2010), Regina Barreca, Ph.D. praises convicted Texas killer Clara Harris for her “great moment of revenge.” The act for which Barreca praises Harris? In 2002, Harris repeatedly ran over her ex-husband David, as David’s daughter Lindsey sat in the front seat of the car begging Clara Harris not to kill her father.

    While Barreca praises Clara Harris, Lindsey, who loved her father and was only 16 years old at the time of the killing, publicly denounced Clara Harris for “the ultimate act of selfishness, caring only about obtaining revenge and thinking not one bit about how her horrible act was going to affect me or my brothers, Brian and Bradley. Anyone who shared my ride in the car that evening, seeing my dad’s face as he was about to be hit, and experiencing the horrible feel of the car bumping over his body would understand that this murderess deserves no sympathy.”

    Lindsey says that Clara mistreated and neglected David, and that her father often confided in her how lonely he felt. Coupled with Clara’s temper and evident capacity for violence, David had ample reason to want to get out of the relationship. Instead of letting him go, Clara killed him. Does Psychology Today feel this is praiseworthy?

    Besides condoning violence, Barreca’s article also reeks of gender bias. The majority of divorces are initiated by women, not by men, and research shows that women’s decision to divorce often catches their husbands by surprise. These men don’t just lose their wives, they often lose their children, too, and their rationale for feeling betrayed is often far more legitimate than Clara Harris’. Does Barreca also feel it would be “great revenge” for these men to murder their wives?

    No type of marital or post-marital violence should ever be condoned, much less praised, and Psychology Today should immediately and clearly distance itself from Barreca’s reprehensible statements.

    Sincerely,

    Glenn Sacks, MA
    Executive Director, Fathers & Families

    Done.

    What a way to bring the Profession into disrepute. As though it were not already on its knees before the feminist mantras, now it has to praise murderers.

    Sure. They 'snapped'. That makes it OK then.

    Poor thing. Diddums snap and kill the nasty man? We'll get a shrink to praise you in a journal and make you a TV heroine. There, there.

    Well we all know, when women snap - they need help. When men snap - they need punishment... just like every crime.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    It seems misandry is rife in the field of psychology.

    Added my signature, too.

    I've heard of Oxygen Network but never watched it. I'm not surprised but still disgusted that it would have a show glorifying murderous women.

    It's too bad we don't have the Psychology Today article to read in its entirety so that we could analyze this more closely. I would like to see from what exact context these phrases are taken. Whilst the phrases "sweet revenge" and "great revenge" by themselves sound like the author's perception of the situation, perhaps what they really are, are Clara's perceptions of the situation, which, as her daughter very sadly notes, are not everyone else's perception of the same thing.

    "Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals."

    "Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace."
    -Albert Schweitzer

    I too would prefer reading the article in question before signing any petition. This is not to say I distrust Glenn Sacks or Ned Holstein, but I do believe in due diligence and am unlikely to sign something without reviewing the material myself first.
    Here is what I have found:

    The author's website.

    Her blog at Psychology Today.

    A book she authored titled [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sweet-revenge-wicked-delights-getting/dp/0425157660"]Sweet Revenge: The Wicked Delights of Getting Even[/ame].

    The January issue lists Getting Even: Stories of Sweet Revenge on the cover, but I've yet to find the story.

    You could request the article by contacting Psychology Today. Or purchase the Psychology Today January/February 2010 issue if it's only in printed format.
