I have come to an epiphany. It seems often people are accused of playing the victim especially when they call out an aggressor. In actuality they are a fighter standing up for what they believe in. By then being told they are playing the victim role establishes the status quo of the patriarchy. It teaches people that it is not appropriate to call out a bully. This is something I have seen since I was a young kid and I was told not to tattle tale. As a revolutionary, I believe we should be doing the opposite. We should be listening to people when they state they are being bullied, not blame them. This is the means that pecking orders are established and by labeling someone as playing the victim insures that that person is a victim and allows for the aggressor to maintain there power.
