“ In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men. ”

DAMN, WTF, JESSE *twirls in slowmo under a shower of reblogs*
I hate BBC Sherlock I more than anything in the world
Dude what no man i only dream about adventures and really cool background art and spur powers and fun suspense. And sometimes plane crashes. Actually a lot of plane crashes. And elevators falling. But other than that it’s all good
It’s weird how people have repeating themes. Lumpyspaceranger dreams about natural disasters and explosions, Tracy dreams about grungey bathrooms, and you dream about plane crashes and falling. We should get one of those dream interpretation dictionaries and do some investigating.
