I am.s struggling to find the argument between the universe and not taking Ownership of ourselves…

I was actually just reformatting this as I realized today it wasn’t as clear to read on the Medium import as it was on the original site. I was trying to express that I see victim blaming as a symptom of society’s own fears and a (sometimes) unconscious way people deal with the discomfort of cognitive dissonance.

Aka they blame the victim so they can convince themselves it could never happen to them or someone they love. I think the more people are aware of this phenomenon, the less likely they are to indulge in the urge to blame the victim instead of the perpetrator.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
