The NEW AGE misuse of the word “VICTIM”.
FALSE BELIEF OF VICTIMHOOD USED AGAINST SOMEONE!
I had this used on me last year with people who have no clue what it really means. Apparently, if someone stalks you then you “signed up for it”, “you are somehow drawing it to you”.
The new age belief that “ there are no victims” Bull….sh.t!
The actual definition of victim: a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action.
It just burns me up! Kids are victims all the time!!! Child abuse is one example, sexual abuse, school abuse, bullying….. THE CHILD DID NOT CAUSE IT! They did not ask for it.
This takes the responsibility OFF the perp and puts it all on the actual victim! It’s another dysfunction of the NEW AGE Belief system! It’s CRAP!
So a woman that is raped — ask for it? There are no victims, she called it forth? REALLY? Dam…n REALLY?
So this is in alignment of the Irish Court System that said a woman age 17 asked to be raped because she had on Thong underwear!!
WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE SYSTEM THAT ENABLES PERPETRATORS!
Stop using NEW AGE beliefs to justify BAD BEHAVIOR! There are no true VICTIMS? WOW! What a crock!
I had this used on me last year by a woman I’d know for about 12 years. I really probably should have explained how idiotic her statements were to me, but I saved my energy! How absurd! No need to waste my time and breathe when people are stuck in the New Age belief system. They don’t question it.
Seriously it needs to be addressed. Otherwise here we are just spinning wheels with #metoo movement trying to make changes and the New Agers trying to negate it. It’s subconscious but it is there.
NEW AGE beliefs such as these are just perpetuating violence, discrimination, in-accountability, and harassment!
Do I believe in peace, love, and acceptance? I DO! AND I DO NOT USE THESE NEW AGE TERMS TO JUSTIFY BEING PASSIVE AND ALLOWING THIS CRAP TO CONTINUE!
Peace, love, joy, happiness, and positivity can be taken too seriously to the point where it is dysfunctional and toxic! It’s a smoke screen for denial.
Stop this overuse of terms that one you don’t know what you are talking about, lacking crucial information, and two doesn’t apply to every situation and everyone!
CUZ frankly you are the victim of the mentality that you heard from someone else and didn’t use your critical thinking to even rationalize it and decide for yourself what it really means and when it is appropriate to use it. PONDER IT!
