Punching Down

Reblogged from TezMillerOz:

Behold, an author accusing a respected reader/reviewer/blogger of things she never did. *headdesk*

The author is free to avoid anyone she wants. But she accused a reader/reviewer/blogger of something she didn't do, so that's punching down.

Author comes back bringing up links from 2010. The reader/reviewer/blogger's only crime: Not calling out something. Because apparently we have to call out every single thing we see. *headdesk*

Sometimes we don't call out every wrong thing we see, due to self-care or otherwise. How about blaming the person who does the wrong thing, instead of the people who don't call it out?

YA Mafia, people. The cliques protect their own, and punch down on others.
