a commonplace book
The potentially aggressive removal of an actor’s choice in a situation.
Mike Rugnetta, “Is Undertale the Most Violent Game This Year?” (2016)
I find this definition, in part (seemingly) derived from Anne Bogart, to be compelling and usefully precise. It better encompasses certain kinds of abuse (such as intimate partner abuse) that do not perhaps fit within the generally-used model of violence. (This definition seems more or less generally subscribed to within the sphere of social theory.)
