I have discussions with people both online and in real life about current affairs, politics, activism, and more. Many people are passionate about what they are discussing and as such, I really don’t mind when the discussion or debate gets heated. If both people understand that the discussion or debate is just that, then you can have a heated debate without taking it personally.
However, many people out there are unable to cope with this idea and do take things personally. And those people tend to be the worst. Especially some of the commentators on social media sites. Instead of saying something constructive or conducive to the debate or discussion at hand, they of course, resort to name calling or attacking someone for stating something they have every right to state. And instead of being civilized they become these lunatics with an axe to grind.
After decades of being active online, I can spot these people very easily. They try to come off as some sort of moral authority on their opinion and attack someone by using slurs that sound racist and bigoted. Then when you confront them they invariably turn their ire on you when you defend yourself or a friend from them. When that doesn’t work and their argument falls apart they then try to slander you to try to get you to move away from the topic at hand in hopes that you will defend yourself from their offensive and then finally claim victim status saying you are the aggressor while they are the poor victim.
This happens almost daily online with people. They think that being offended by something they see online gives them the automatic moral right to attack people, and when they are defended against, they pretend to be victims of abuse online. There are many people out there who do this. I see many feminists, SJWs and liberals who do this.
This is what I call the Infantile Victim Disorder or IVD. You get an IVD when you have a warped set of beliefs that cause you to believe there is a mysterious patriarchy made up of old white men out to get you. Or that you think you are superior to the other person due to their body parts. And even due to a skin tone that is not considered Caucasian.
Symptoms include, being “triggered“. Using the word Problematic, and telling men they have male privilege or the other variant if you are a person of another color, having white male privilege.
Other symptoms may include: Obesity, Poverty, Neon color in hair, getting undressed in public to march against rape, yelling and spitting on men at university, submitting false rape claims, false reports of sexual assault. Raping men. Being the aggressor in domestic violence. Lesbianism.
If you suspect you have IVD, please go see a psychiatrist immediately. Usually sufferers of IVD also have Bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder and project their issues and blame others for problems that don’t exist or are the cause of the sufferer’s own actions.
