“The legal system is designed to protect men from the superior power of the state but not to protect women or children from the superior power of men.
It therefore provides strong guarantees for the rights of the accused but essentially no guarantees for the rights of the victim.
If one set out by design to devise a system for provoking intrusive post-traumatic symptoms, one could not do better than a court of law.”
I have also blogged about how I am so sick of hearing about the ‘rights and needs’ of the abusers.
And not having rights and needs, as a victim of their abuse.
I wrote this in a previous blog…
“It’s always about the abusers. Their rights. Their legal rights. Their human rights. Their mental health. Their issues. Their problems. Their past. How they must be forgiven. How they must receive compassion. How they couldn’t help it. How they didn’t understand what they were doing. How they are hurting inside. How society unfairly judges them. How we must not label them. How we must pray for them. How we must forgive them. The list is endless.
And ‘I’ am the bad person, if I don’t.
More shame, more guilt, more emotional (and spiritual) abuse.
Only from those who I need to help me.
I find it quite sickening, that society, religion, church people – mostly seem to want to participate in this and fail to ‘want’ to have the needed empathy and compassion for victims of abuse.
It is evil at work.
