The Trauma of Being Questioned.
Dr. Peter Boghossian, who I have long held in high regard for his ability to see obverse perspectives, went onto Portland State University recently with a sign that challenged current gender/nonbinary thought forms. He was filming, and the reaction he got was spectacularly revealing.
These people were traumatized for having their beliefs questioned publicly.
There was a tweeter that said this:
Before we go further, when someone uses “uncomfortable” followed by “unsafe”, one of these is not like the other. “Unsafe means there is actual danger.” Uncomfortable, in this tweet, seems to be that the ego was uncomfortable with the “trauma” of being challenged.
The biggest expectation I see from all of the current smorgasbord of new beliefs frames that are emerging is that they all expect, no, they demand that you and I validate their beliefs as fact. FUCK NO. I defy that.
The tweeter then tweeted this:
Being certified as an ADA Advocate (Homosexuality and Bisexuality are specifically excluded from the ADA), and also trained in survivor rights advocacy at NCVLI in Portland OR, and having lived with PTSD practically all of my life, I can assure you that I am trauma-informed.
And what this person needs is to learn how to not be a snowflake. This person believes that someone else not validating their belief system is traumatic.
Goddamn. These kids are going to have to rule the next world, and they are this fragile that they can’t have their beliefs questioned?
