things not to do with people who have selective mutism
- pressure them to speak
- praise them and make a huge deal when they do speak
- say shit like “i can’t help you if you don’t speak to me!”
- intentionally exclude them because they don’t talk
- punish them if they don’t speak
these are like the most counterproductive things you can do

what i’m talking about re: gaslighting is
- the denial of someone’s perception of reality as true
- the denial of someone’s experiences as meaningful
- the denial of someone’s experiences as legitimate
all of these things equate to “what you experienced didn’t really happen as you perceived it, and my perception is more true than yours, and you should listen to me instead of trusting your own experiences”
and that is gaslighting
and that is abuse
hello small feathered things i am a baby elephant it is nice to meet you may we shake noses?

repeat after me:
there are white people suffering in the world
but the white people who are suffering are not suffering because they are white
"Tell me where it hurts, she’d say. Stop howling. Just calm down and show me where.
But some people can’t tell where it hurts. They can’t calm down. They can’t ever stop howling."
Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.
