The words used in the work Did you Destroy? are my own. They follow very closely my theory that violence against women is linked to the insecurities of masculinity and contempt and fear of women. The violence increases together with the level of insecurity:

Did you destroy your softness by belittling her?

Did you destroy your feminine side by assaulting her? 

Did you destroy your weakness by raping her?

Did you destroy your impotence by killing her?
