Modern American culture glorifies victimhood.
Go look at the video of the Communists and useful idiots screaming at the sky on the anniversary of the election on November 8th.
Agree and rewards it. Some people never take responsibility for their own bad choices and keep making them because it is always someone else’s fault.
Yes, that’s what micro aggressions seem like .
Yes, everyone thinks they're a victim. Lefties think they're victims of big business and facism. Righties think they're victims of big government and political correctness.
It's really quite stupid and we need to purge both sides of this victim hood mentality.
I felt sorry for the Menendez Brothers because the were orphaned.
It obviously does.
Yes and this happens on both sides
Duh, South Park made an episode devoted to that this season
It's getting much better at acknowledging victimhood, but I wouldn't say it glorifies it.
You're right. The statement is just a way to justify ignoring issues.
Yes. Its a sign of a weak declining culture.
Yep, that’s true.
Yes. It absolutely does.
No. What absurd nonsense.
Victim hood is treated “as special or elevated”.
How can you disagree with that?
Because it's not true. How is it elevated? Acknowledgement isn't elevation, and it sure as hell isnt glorification.
When people are victims, they are less likely to be called out on their faults because it’s not pc to do. The public tends to glaze over, for fear of being the bad guy.
I️ agree with thatguy because earlybird proved him wrong so easily it made him a victim, and victims are always right.
No. This is just a ridiculous justification for dismissing victims and not changing anything.
Ok, think I’ll bow out now.
Uh oh, thatguy’s response made me feel bad about myself, and earlybird is pouting- that means we’re the victims now, and he’s the aggressor, so he loses.
If only you had an argument instead of bad jokes...
guy, a perfect example is a popular user from the past. She was known for posting pics of her high heal shoes. She got away with saying all kinds of hateful crap because she was “a victim”. You know who I’m talking about.
I️’m not making an argument. I’m just mocking you. I️ don’t need to do anything more than that in polls where Democrats are so obviously at odds with reality.
Early, how did she get away with it?
Milk, at least you acknowledge you're nothing more than a troll.
Whenever someone called her out, the entire app jumped down that persons throat. It happened the entire time she was here.
I️ only ever troll you. If you ever do anything other than stomp your feet and call me a racist/sexist/bigot/stupidhead to close a discussion then maybe I’ll reconsider.
If you’re interested in reading up on this topic, here’s an article from an nbc affiliate about a study that found 6% of teens admit to bullying _themselves_ online so they can claim victim status.
I️ think I️ remember a guy who used to do that, EB. Not sure who you’re talking about.
Lol. Whining about being called names when I didn't call you anything. Now who's trying to be the victim? Oh, sweet irony
I am! And that’s why I️ win!
Who’s the victim?
I'll never understand what passes for humor to conservatives.
I know. You can’t help it.
Nice try at claiming victim status, btw.
If you want to see Snowflakes on the left look at college campuses. If you want to see Snowflakes on the right look at the Hannity viewers throwing their own coffee makers off balconies.
I don’t get it- coffee makers?
I’m sure there a college classes on how to be a victim. How about the black guy the writes the N word on his own dorm door nd claims he’s being victimized or some of those muslim women that rip the own hijab off to blame another. I remember when the dog ate my homework but it didn’t work.
Kuerig coffee makers pulled their advertising from Hannity. Hannity supporters destroyed their coffee machines.
A world of knuckleheads.
I️ don’t like Hannity or own a keurig, so what does that make me?
It makes you a liberal.
Milk, I too do not watch Hannity nor own that machine. Coffee is perked. But I do watch a Fox News. No Sean!
I️ never understand the percentages on these types of questions until I️ look at the “results” tab and see what groups voted lol makes sense now
It’s the preferred means for getting attention (and advancing the democrat agenda) for many democrats.
The down vote squad must be in full force today. Your poll was at zero a few seconds after it was posted. 👎
That’s just me. I️ downvote my own polls to make people feel bad for me. Victimhood FTW!
Yep - it glorifies victimhood so much that liberals create imaginary bogeymen. It’s quite remarkable.
It works out great for them. They can make themselves out to be heroes by defeating the evil right. The more "victims" the more they can help.
True and get lots of money. If you are a victim the government must take money from others and compensate you.
