Victim blaming is a dangerous logical fallacy in which the victims are blamed for the actions of the people bullying or abusing. Katarzyna Babis, an art student in Poland, decided to tackle this issue with simple comics that illustrate the problems with different forms of victim blaming.

"Lots of my friends experience such situations in their [lives] and I wanted to help them," Babis told MTV. "I wanted to turn my social media popularity into something meaningful. I think it’s really, really important to know you’re not alone with your problem."

I've been dealing with depression since my teens. I'm now 60, for awhile I was doing pretty OK, then the meds stopped being effective, they do that doesn't seem fair. But nothing seems fair right now. We, my Doctor and I as well as my husband who is a Board Certified Psycho- Pharmacist are trying to find to find a medication or medications that are as effective as what I was on. It's hard, I just want to be happy again, and this affects everyone in my family. Thank you for this, maybe it will help people understand that getting out and working or doing other stuff doesn't work. And you just can't "Cheer UP!"

I was raped when i was 18 after the incident, my parents would tell me to leave the room because i was a reminder of their embarrassment.

I think the caption completely misses the point. Using 'girl' as an insult means there's something wrong with being a girl. Heads up, it's not about the wounded daddy. It's about his wounded daughter. It's about all females. A dad getting called a girl should be thinking about who's listening, not himself. Back up your daughter or wife or mom, teach your son a lesson.

i have been dealing with depression for nearly fifteen years, and yet doctors have never been able to find anything wrong with me. . .

I know exactly what you mean. Have the same thing with a rare sleeping disorder. Hope we''ll find a doctor who really takes us seriously some day!

I agree strongly with this one. I found out one of my friends was anorexic and the rest of the school teased her since she was overweight.

I was recently told depression is just a bad part of ones character and it is under the same list of jealousy, criticism and anger. People don't realize that depression is a sickness and you can't just get over it by ignoring it...

An anorexic who I know very well, goes 3 or 4 days without eating anything. She has been overweight her whole life. People keep congratulating on the weight she has lost. They have no idea she is slowly killing herself.

Frankly, a lot of gay people have a lot better fashion sense than straights!
