tw abuse policing personal pet peeve
August 15, 2012
(probably because it is so fucking gross)
People who think that for something to count as abuse it needs to fulfill some arcane formula they decide on.
People who think their experiences are the authoritative measure for abuse.
People who watched a tv movie and think that abuse must be *visible* and *dramatic* for it to count.
People who use their experiences to silence yours.
People who think their personal experience makes them experts and, thus, qualified to make judgements about other people’s experience.
People who do this fucking suck.
