In all the stories of sexual abuse and bullying, I find myself so disturbed by their unintended consequence of spreading and reenforcing a culture of victimhood. Yes to raising awareness, and yes to increasing prevention. But an absolute no to the consistent message that people who are abused or bullied are now written into an unescapable narrative of “tragedy” and victimization. Instead, give them the power to rewrite their story. Your indignation, as righteous as it makes you, does no one any service.
