Emma includes the problem of passive aggression, aka Devil’s Advocate, in my book. It can be hard to recognise, which is when it does the most psychological damage to the person targeted – lashing out, suffering low self esteem, anxiety in social/work gatherings…. without really understanding why.
I am so glad you highlighted the problem of passive aggression, aka Devil’s Advocate, in my book. It can be hard to recognise, which is when it does the most psychological damage to the person targeted. Lashing out, feeling anxiety in social/work settings, low self-esteem – all without really understanding why. Well said Em!
I am so inspired by your work, your comic strips are so powerful! My blog is more or less along the same lines. Please let me know if you want an American’s opinion on translations.. I lived in France for some time.

Great article. You articulated my own views on the remarkable power of social conditioning- in my case I’m particularly interested in how social conditioning has so successfully normalised the brutal treatment of farm animals. I would be interested to find out about your views on this. The way in which society so readily accepts the violent treatment of animals seems to be even more deeply entrenched than the acceptance of abuse of various human rights (perhaps this is because there are no natural allies in this particular struggle – at least none who can speak for themselves). Even more remarkable is the arbitrary distinction between animals we can happily abuse (pigs, cows, chickens, sheep etc) and those we love (dogs, cats, horses etc) (UK perspective – for other countries you can swap some of these animals between categories….)
Thank you for your Comics (and the translations!)
This is exactly what happened to me once, in a situation where my anger just made the oppressor really satisfied. I was thinking about how i should have properly reacted for a long time and came to the conclusion that it was my fault I reacted that way, even though it was clearly the right thing to do for me at that moment. It’s very unfair that the oppressed seem to have to handle their anger and just be calm and polite with someone who clearly just wanted to provoke them, to then not be judged even more.
Spot on. This is really well written. I ask myself the same question. When will the tipping point occur? When will the oppressed rise? It will be a terrifying, powerful day when it happens.
