187 When Victims Attaaaaaack!!! Aka The Dangerous Implications of “Accusation Phobia”
In This EpisodeAfter a family conversation about #MeToo, Callie wanted to talk about how victims are completely erased in conversations by moderates when they twist themselves in concern over the potential of false accusations or the loss of career for people who did things that they consider “not that bad” or happened “a long time ago.” Nichole talks from her experience of feeling silenced by this attitude, how it perpetuates a fear in victims that what happened to them isn’t bad enough or important enough to warrant justice. We also discuss the concept of restorative justice and why a culture of it would help everyone in these situations, but also why it’s nearly impossible to implement in today’s environment.
