everyone really needs to stop calling folks narcissists/sociopaths when the people they're referring to aren't diagnosed and are really just known abusers.

abuse is not inherent with cluster b personality disorders.

OK before I go to sleep, I've had this not idea. Its called "Guards" and it's profile pic is a guard from skyrim. When people tag it in a thread it barges in an says "Hold it right there, criminal scum! You have committed a crime against this instance. Now you either come with us or we use force. What say you?"

it is honestly concerning the amount of people that downplay cults/call shit cults when they aren't/ignore how ingrained cults are in our society

like holy shit there are so many people that have been affected/indoctrinated/killed by cults.

there are so many folks that have been taken in either by manipulation or literally against their will and will most likely never recover from the trauma they got from being in them.

and gods, just look at all the people that run around w intense idolizations of serial killers, alt right propagandists, nazis. hell, look at trumps very following.

i'm not gonna lie, everyone knows or at least knows someone that knows someone that was/is in a cult. it's...really not funny. really not hilarious. it's actually genuinely horrifying to me. and idk i feel like a lot of people don't understand why they can't just pretend that they're not a big deal/problem

it actually horrifies me the amount of people that downplay this shit. it's like, idk it's just making a safety net for people to act like cults are just isolated incidents that hardly ever happen that people try to forget but the cults that we do know about are just the ones that got caught/had people escape/killed all their members.

pedo sydicates are cults. slave trafficking groups are cults. a cult is a cult is a cult and ion think people understand how actually insidious it all is

this link is to a video animation explaining the different manipulation tactics of cults/the BITE model by steve hassan

it's only ten-ish minutes. please look into it. at the very least y'all will be able to figure out if a group trying to get you/your friends to join them is a cult or not. be safe.

all yall ace exclusionists be pretending y'all for queer issues/that y'all are "activists"

but y'all out there liking all these garbage pages/people/groups and co-signing the ideology of targeting and dehumanizing asexual people.

y'all can't make it make sense.

"ah yes we can talk about poc rights. we can say nazis are bad. we can say fuck you to terfs. we can destigmatize mental illnesses

but we're gonna have to exclude asexual people and call folks cishets when asexuality is its own identity within itself"

^that's how ace exclusionists that pretend to be activists sound like

so many folks are so fucking fake and it's EXTREMELY obvious when people only care about things that affect them.

when i say "kill your idolization/kill your idols"

i really just mean people really need to stop idolizing others.

idolizing leads to people excusing the actions of others and holding people above folks. it just contributes to reinforcing hierarchies/their structures and creates a platform that ultimately leads to people condoning/excusing/reinforcing marginalizations no matter the reasoning folks use.

it's extremely harmful and toxic behavior that we as a society need to stop.

@ottergauze yeah and you're right like on either side it really messes with people's mental health in a universal sense

to add on to this further

idolization contributes to the destruction of folks' mental health AND gives people that entitled complex it feeds itself on people's insecurities/holier than thou attitudes.
