Well, to a biology teacher, we are all animals ; few of us are vegetables. But sadly some of us, like this selfish and horrible person you mysteriously choose to live with, are unusually nasty animals. Of course he is abusing you, and displays how foul he is, by picking on your vulnerability and using this weakness so as to torment you.
Nothing about him or what he says is right, but clearly you do have very low self-esteem ( hardly surprising, as he keeps on stomping on it.) Why else would you choose to spend even a minute in his company, or pay any attention to the mean things he says ? Just who does he think he is ? Which of the Nobel Prizes does he expect to win ? That'd look so nice amongst all his Oscars and Olympic Medals.
If you were the terrible person he ways you are : what is a genius like him doing spending time with you ? He really hasn't met any other woman to live with ? Really ? If he hasn't met any other human who would put up with him ?
No, it is him who is such a toxic, bitter and unlovable person, who gets his grubby little kicks out of tormenting you. Don't waste time arguing with him. Get help. Contact a group like POWA, any organization helping abused people, and they can help you with support and advice, Help you to find a safe way to live and support yourself away from him, and to leave safely. Maybe in a self-help woman's group you could grow your self-esteem. You will discover that you are a person so excellent that his tiny mind could not and would not understand you. Leave him behind in the dust as you move forwards.
