Obnoxious Drunks

October 23, 2011

I was walking down the street last night and two histrionics were screaming for attention. I looked at them only to see their faces.

Obviously they were drunk (medicating their pain/suppressing their abusive past). They didn’t like the fact that I turned around to look at them, so they started hurling insults at me because being drunk is a histrionic’s excuse to be an asshole.

Rather than confront them, which is what they wanted, I ignored them. This threw them into a fit of rage. I laughed as they continued to hurl insults.

They were desperate to suck me into their vortex of drama. But I wasn’t having it. When we reached the stop light, I just turned to look them both in the eyes. And of course the two cowards looked away. This is how you deal with a histrionic.

They were once victims, but now they are sad assholes looking to spread their pain. The city is filled with these sad cases, runaways from another life. The only reason I was able to endure their insults was because I know myself and I know their game.

Milking the Pepper Spray

October 1, 2011

Henceforth, “Milking the Pepper Spray” shall be used to describe the phenomenon known as self-victimization. Self-victimization is a pattern of behavior whereby histrionic women look for trouble and then cry “VICTIM!” when they find it.

Why? What’s in it for them? Attention. Lots of it. Sympathy. These women want you to feel sorry for them:

Sometimes playing the victim is used to divert attention away from a person’s own abusive or dysfunctional behavior. If people’s attention can stay focused on another individual then the abuser hopes that attention will not rest on their own flaws.

The goal of Self-Victimization is to control the responses of other people in one of two ways:

  1. Divert attention away from acts of abuse by claiming that the abuse was justified based on another person’s bad behavior (typically the victim)
  2. Solicit sympathy from others in order to gain their assistance in supporting or enabling the abuse of a victim – also known as proxy recruitment.

It is very common for perpetrators of abuse to engage in self-victimization. This serves two purposes:

  1. Justification to themselves – as a way of dealing with the cognitive dissonance that results from inconsistencies between the way they treat others and what they believe about themselves.
  2. Justification to others – as a way of escaping harsh judgment or condemnation they may fear from people whom they wish to please or impress.

These women have dedicated their whole life to playing the victim. As one BPD specialist put it:

Shy away from the victim mentality. Most folks of BPD WERE victims at one time. That is not the problem, however. The problem is that the BPD derives benefits in remaining a victim…and will fight tooth and nail to remain one. Lots of rewards, lots of power, lots of attention are won by it.

I would include other disordered folk, especially people who suffer from histrionic personality disorder.

Are you going to SlutWalk this Saturday? Hit me up with some opinions! I will write about them!

Sassy Doyle is really interested in Slut Walk. Why? What’s in it for her? If we have learned anything about attention-whores, it’s that they are self-serving. Sady Doyle is interested in Slut Walk because this is her fan base. If Slut Walk is the pride parade for attention whores, then Sady Doyle is trying to position herself as band leader.

Recently, she started writing for Rookie, an online mag for “awkward teens”. Sady Doyle is trying awfully hard to prove she cares. Why? What’s in it for her? More young and impressionable readers. More popularity. Popularity she’s never had before. A boost for her suffering self-esteem. She is filling the Void.

Who is Sady Doyle? Well, you may not have heard of her. But to those who have a history of sexual assault and personality disorders, she is their Moses. But instead of leading them to the Promise Land, she keeps them in Victimhood. Instead of encouraging them to seek treatment for their lifelong trauma, she encourages them to go to Slut Walk.

If you are a faithful reader, you know the problem I have with Slut Walk. It is a parade for people who suffer from Histrionic Personality Disorder aka Attention Whores. They aren’t parading for liberty or democracy. They aren’t protesting tyranny or oppression. They are amassing for attention. Slut Walk does not treat the effects of traumatization. But instead feeds the disease.

Sady Doyle gives us insight into the disease:

Really captures the whole experience. RT @bmichael: Creepy old shirtless guy taking photos of #slutwalk http://instagr.am/p/OxS-F/

The photo embedded in her tweet is of a guy in his apartment taking a photo of Slut Walk. The first reaction you have is “yeah, that guy is kinda creepy.” But let’s think about the context here. The guy is in his apartment. It’s not like he’s in a trenchcoat flashing people on the street.

The girls of Slut Walk, on the other hand, are walking out on the street in bras and panties. (notice the bright colored hair) They are begging for attention. Begging. But when some guy in his apartment takes the bait, they scream “CREEPER!” You wanna talk creepy? Observe this pattern of baiting. Not the guy taking the bait.

Baiting is creepy because normal healthy women don’t bait and punish. That is the trademark of a woman who has had a history of sexual assault and remains untreated. The word “untreated” is significant, because emotional wounds should be taken as seriously as physical wounds if not more so. It’s like watching someone parade around with blood gushing out of her head. Left untreated, emotional wounds get worse and worse.

Slut Walk is just a symptom. Don’t let the whimsical nature of this parade fool ya. There is nothing to celebrate when a woman, who is emotionally scarred, goes untreated. Slut Walk is just a small example of the media circus that always seems to be in town when attention whores are in town. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
