I weighed about 160 when I came to college. How did this happen? But no complaints
Exactly. Swear people miss the big picture.
This is the line that has gotten me through life.
This is some victim blaming bullshit that seems to come from someone that has never experienced the psychological mindfuck of ongoing abuse. Coercion is not consent. Bullying is not consent. Repeating that you are inferior over and over again until you believe it is not consent (it’s a form of brainwashing). I couldn’t see this on my dash and not say something. This is wrong.
Totally blatant victim blaming
Yeah my immediate thought when I saw this was…what? Who actually CONSENTS to feeling inferior?
This also reminds me of people who are oppressed and brought up to feel inferior because of who you are. Sometimes that way of thinking is all you know and it can be very hard to undo it
Except what he’s trying to tell her is that no one can make her feel bad about herself unless she allows them to. As in, she doesn’t have to let them. It’s her choice whether she takes peoples’ crap to heart. He’s quoting Eleanor Roosevelt.
He is encouraging her to be as strong as he knows she is and for her to believe in herself, her strengths, and what she knows. He’s a strong role model in these movies and he cares about her. Can people stop over analyzing and actually try to understand the grand scheme of things like this please, wow.
