6 Creepy Brainwashing Techniques You Can Use Today

#6. Repeating Your Opinion Makes People Believe It, No Matter How Stupid It Is
It’s just the way human social behavior works — if a message is repeated enough times, others will begin to accept it as a commonly held belief in the group. In fact, studies have found that if just one person repeats the same opinion three times, it has a whopping 90 percent chance of converting three different people in the group to have the same opinion. Holy shit, that’s how both politics and conspiracy theories work, isn’t it? Researchers at the University of Michigan have come to call the phenomenon memory distortion, and it’s basically a brain glitch where the interplay of repetition and assumption makes us form our beliefs around whatever opinion is the most familiar to us.

the sex positivity movement should never forget asexuals, abstinent & celibate people

being comfortable with not being interested in sex is just as important as being comfortable with having sex

my sex positivity is all about consenting adults making choices about their sexuality, even if that means choosing not to/not being interested in engaging in sex at all.

Kill the idea that victims reacting to abuse/harassment/bullying/assault with anger makes the situation mutual and puts both parties in the wrong

Kill the idea that the anger of victims is equivalent to harmful behaviour, because abusers try to frame their actions as part of a mutual ‘conflict’ so bystanders will condone their cruelty as a justified response to a hostile situation. Stop letting it slide.

THANK YOU.

too real.
