I want to see and hear more people who challenge this bullshit namby pamby New Age insanity where suddenly all the socio-political, Capitalistic hell that cuases people to suffer becomes OUR fault. Where are you, people?

I feel so validated when I meet people like ass-kicking artist Heather Freeman, who shared with me this art she did on how we need to help victims instead of blame them. Go Heather!  

Here’s what she wrote in a comment on a previous post of mine, which is what motivated her to share her awesome art page: “My theory is that people feel safer if they can believe the victims brought it on themselves, so they go through all kinds of torturous logic to make that the case.”

Word.
