Okay so today I come at you with a rant and a question at the end.
So I'm currently playing Metal Gear V and my phone is going off with loads of notifications from a group I'm in. The group I think is for women to *out* "love rats" and such. I joined for the lulz, I imagine one day some people I know may end up on there.
Well anyway loads of drama, kinda annoying.. girls have been caught screenshotting posts by other women in there outing ex partners or flings.. some warning the men are violent. One woman has been caught sending the screenshots. She arranged to meet up with one of these violent dudes and got her bit of dick and he told her to fuck off.
She told him his ex was posting about him in the group and he went to where she lived and beat her to a pulp. She's in the hospital.. all because some idiot wanted a LAUGH. It's not funny. Domestic abuse is a serious thing. It affects a lot of people, men, women, children, nonbinary people... humans. It affects humans with real feelings who are sometimes so scared they will never out the abuser for fear they will get killed. What kind of messed up world do we live in where some people SEEK OUT the abusers? That girl was clearly unhinged and she could have got the victim killed. All for a bit of dick. Nice. Classy.
There were people defending her once her photo and name were posted in the group and my question to you guys is:
Do you think these girls deserve respect, to be sheltered? After they endangered a woman warning about an abuser? What about the "girl code?" Why do people sheild abusers too? 😔 this has really upset me, as someone who was brought up in a violent household.. my abuser was protected then and still is now..
