What do the movie, Blue Jasmine, the movie and musical, Waitress and the fucking White House all have in common?

They all have white, all American abusers in them.

Why do you think people weren’t surprised that Donald Trump got elected president of the United States? Because we, the world, are too used to everyday emotional, psychological and verbal abuse. It does not phase us but that doesn’t mean we know how to identify it.

Why do you think that is?

We are afraid. Well, I can only speak for myself…I’m afraid. I’m afraid of a large group of heteronormative, english-speaking white men. 1,000,000 times more so than any other group of people. Now, my boyfriend is a white male so obviously I’m not afraid of ALL white men.

So, what do i mean?

White, English speaking heteronormative men are the most privileged people in the entire world. Thus, some of them think the world fucking owes them something.

For example, I’m sitting on a train right now and a dude was staring at me “flirtatiously” and I was not in the mood for a leery white guy so I called my boyfriend and described his behavior to embarrass him. Now, he’s staring at me with dagger eyes. Why? Well, I can only guess what he’s thinking. My guess? “Who does this girl think she is? What gives her the RIGHT to talk about ME on a public train like that? I wasn’t dong anything. Ugh, if I get her alone, I will give her a piece of my mind.” Now, the last part is what terrifies me. “Piece of my mind” could mean 100 different things. It could mean verbal abuse but it could also mean rape. Now, this guy could just have a resting bitch face. That’s another possibility, but I have to assume he is thinking the former for my own protection, because I live in a world where the President of the United States is an abuser and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is his bitch.

Abuse is everyday.

Every. fucking. day.

If you don’t agree then you’re most likely ignoring the signs. If you don’t think YOU’VE ever been at least a bit abusive towards someone, you’re probably wrong. And not thinking you’re capable of abuse is more dangerous than not noticing it…because if you think you’re a saint, you may actually be a gas-lighting narcissist, manipulating those closest to you.
