In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Anonymous asked: why do people make up words like cisnormativity?
why do people make up words at all? why do we have a structured language to convey concepts and meaning? why not just grunt and clap and fling our shit on the walls like chimpanzees
You never named me.
Victor, you never gave me what little humanity
every person is owed.
I understand there are abominations
and monstrosities that should be forgotten and
erased from history but
even hurricanes have names.
You the real MVP
