WTF is "emotionally blackmailed"? He was going to be mean to her if she didn't do what he wanted? Sounds like a bullshit excuse for doing something terrible. I have a dream that one day women will be accountable for their actions.

Emotional blackmail is a real thing.

It's an abuse tactic where the abuser gets their victim to comply with demands by manipulating one or both of their emotional states by making the victim dependent on that emotional state.

The two primary ways I've seen it done are agitation and dependency.

If the abuser is using emotional blackmail through agitation, the abuser is basically always acting like they are a moment from going absolutely bonkers and making a scene. The victim is placed under extremely high stress because they are basically waiting for the abuser to decide to make their move and start: crying, screaming, yelling, throwing things, ect all so that the victim does what they are told due to the stress of wanting to not have an argument, or public humiliation.

If the abuser is using emotional blackmail through dependency, the abuser has made the victim emotionally dependent on feelings of validation or adequacy. This means that the victim is likely isolated from any sort of positive re-enforcement outside of the abuser, while the abuser is effectively grooming the victim into behaving in the way they want by constantly berating them or neglecting them, and only giving them any sort of positive reinforcement when the abuser is conditioning the victim's behavior.

The entirety of the Left?

Yeah, I know. I've been saying that for several years. Social Justice is a protection racket that is promoted through an industrial scale form of emotional and psychological abuse, targeted at 350 million Americans and it makes me physically sick to think about.

Did you? You are a stronger man than me. I tried, but failed. I got four or five paragraphs in, it was pretentious writing and seemed like she was making up excuses. Did after 3000 words eventually she say "I take full responsibility" after making excuses for entire article before it?

Flagrantly disrespecting a source and repeating every single thing that you promised that source would be "off the record" would be a death sentence for most journalists, even if the quotes were accurate. But Daniel apparently is not content with that ethical violation, because he compounded it by flat out lying about things I said. For instance, when the fact checker from The Atlantic called me initially, she asked me about a quote where I supposedly said, “I guess I’m a hypocrite for marrying my husband.” I have never said anything like this, and asked her where she got the quote. She said Daniel had linked an audio file. She then proceeded to listen to that audio file and discover that not only had I said nothing of the kind, but the conversation never even mentioned my husband or my family.

Yet The Atlantic still published it.

Well one can despise both the corrupt media outlets such as the Atlantic and Lauren Southern for being a tradthot grifter.

I don't trust either of these parties.

Here's the dishonest Atlantic hitpiece, including the BS "Croation neo-Nazi" story for those interested: https://archive.vn/BieYb

Subhuman shitbags like Daniel Lombroso are one of the reasons antisemitism is still a thing.

Interesting how semitic behavior induces anti-semitism.

The thing that surprises me the most about this story is the fact that Gavin McInnes was trying to hit on a woman. Maybe he mistook her for that one maga tranny?
