Victim Culture: seven out of ten people claim they are oppressed.
The spread of a victim culture now means that more than seven out of ten people claim they are oppressed.
Huge chunks of the population have been racing to join the ranks of the officially disadvantaged, a report found.
Belonging to a victim group means the opportunity of financial gain and promotion at work, and the chance to denounce enemies to police or in the courts.
The ranks of those given special rights because of their victimhood have now swelled so that they outnumber their alleged oppressors.
The analysis by criminologist Dr David Green said that Government recognised victim groups now take in 73 per cent of the population.
I think everyone needs to have a long hard think about this, because it is completely outrageous and is a huge testimony to the explosion of first-world-problems.
I am a woman. I do face some hardships because of my gender. But I am NOT oppressed, I am NOT a victim and I am NOT disadvantaged as a result.
Things not going exactly how I want is OPPRESSION.
Serious question time SSHOF.
Over my short time on this Earth, I’ve learned something: Saying “Calm Down” to an angry girl is not something you want to do. But in all of my searching, I’ve never found a reason why this is the case. The closest answer I’ve received is “just ‘cause,” or “you just don’t do that.”
Now this is how I see this. When I say to someone “calm down” I see that they’re emotionally charged, and emotionally charged is generally not how you want to arrive at a resolution to a problem. I’m pretty sure it’s a common theme in literature (in life in general actually) that any decision made while under the influence of rage, desperation, heavy infatuation etc. is usually one that ends in more harm than good. So to me, “calm down” seems like a good place to start. Take a step back. Approach the problem reasonably. Let’s not act rashly.
So today, I see this bullshit, which is endorsed by a licensed marriage and family therapist. Apparently by telling someone to calm down, men are dismissing women’s feelings,
He says, “calm down” but what you hear is: “You’re being irrational.” [Many] women internalize this phrase to mean that their feelings aren’t valid.
“Calm down” is a pat phrase that doesn’t problem-solve since people generally don’t like their feelings dictated. And if you’re not (that) upset to begin with? Well, he just elevated the argument to epic proportions.
and being emotionally manipulative.
[It’s] classic projection; if a man feels angry and out of control, he’ll tell the woman that she is angry and out of control.
Seriously. Think about this for a moment. The guy who talked about this has a PhD. Holy shit. He must have won it from a cereal box, cause this is bullshit.It’s more of this, “men need to read women’s minds” bullshit
Did this guy stop for a minute and think, maybe the person saying “calm down” might actually want to help the person? That maybe men aren’t emotionally devoid creatures, and not ignorant to others feelings? That maybe we think it’s in our partner’s best interest for them to take a step back and not react to a situation so harshly? Like really? What the fuck is this? So according to this, all women are allowed to overreact and men aren’t allowed to intervene, even if it might be in the man’s, woman’s or relationship’s best interests? Nah, let’s just go with the same feminist crap, women are always right in this situation and men simply are oppressive and don’t understand how to be a normal human being.
Whatta load of crap.

PS: As repulsive as STFUHypocrisy is, I get where she’s coming from on the America thing. In geography (when I learned it anyway), “America” ALWAYS meant the USA and “North America” represented our continent. “The Americas” was solely used for referring to North America and South America simultaneously. “America” never meant North America. To me anyway.
