This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

Progressives Are Abusing You — Therapists Speak Out

Well, that's what they're TRYING to do anyway.... Although I have heard of similar things in right-wing conservative Christian circles, I think the amount of mind-melting manipulative tactics currently coming from the Left is through the roof.

As an example, my wife has had two bosses who were extremely abusive, leading to at least one psychological breakdown among her colleagues, and my wife coming pretty close.  Both bosses were also decidedly on the left politically, the worst one (a university prof.)  actually arguing that men and women can do exactly the same things, including playing the same roles in movies, sex be damned. The irony was that her academic work was actually focused on improving working conditions for people, but her hobby was apparently to grind the self-worth of her subordinates to dust. When some of the abusive behavior came to light among her superiors at the university she immediately played the victim, pointed out that she is a WOMAN and a minority (Jewish), and how dare they blah blah. 

Anyway, the video is well worth the time to watch it.

Classic DARVO tactics, as well as gaslighting.

People who do that didn't get beaten up enough in high school.

More and more I think it's appropriate to consider Mass Media to be a form of torture inflicted on people. And as unfortunate as it is, many of the torture victims, especially women, get Stockholm Syndrome when subjected to this extreme abuse.

Speaking of this, notice some of the comments under this video... (e.g. from "Jen")

" Jen 4 days ago
I relate to this so much- on the 'Queer' side and 'Gender Studies side'. I got sucked into the CRT later on and started to struggle to be around mates who were black because as CRT tells you, you are oppressing people without even trying by your 'whiteness'. It makes no logical sense but it's all led by this deep emotion, a guilt and anger. Being made to believe you have this rotten evil inside of you. Just like old school cults make you believe. The worst CRT videos I watched were ones convincing me white people like me can't be murdered because we don't have humanity. I couldn't sleep for a couple days after that. My intuition was saying it was nonsense but I was so brainwashed I talked myself into it still."

One of the more disturbing aspects is how most Psychologists promote this type of psychological abuse. They know it's harmful, damaging, and likely to just cause further antagonism, but they don't care because it aligns with their socio-political agendas.

I don't trust psychologists at all.  They rat you out with converstions you thought were meant to be between doctor and patient.  Then they shove pills down your throat telling you it is for your own good.  Given I had pills to help me concentrate for my school studies, but...  Fuck tutoring did me better than those pills. 

To this day I try to warn my sisters that they will shove pills down their kids's throats.  To this day my sisters refuse to listen to me.

  I do see one trend where any speech including CRT or Diversity or Inclusivity basically means Anti White or "We need less Whites".   With the population of white people in the USA being around 62 percent, I do wonder what that rhetoric is going to sound like when it goes below 50 percent.
