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.

That is terrible and disgusting what happened and what your parents said no one would argue differently! What I have come to realise is that we don't choose our parents, we just get them, they may be total jerks but it's our choice whether we believe them or trust in them or give htem any power over our emotions. Once we're in this world we are truly the only ones who are in control of our actions and the pursuit of our dreams. We can move on from our family or others who don't value us, there is no obligation to stay around anyone who doesn't treat us right. Do what you gotta do to make yourself happy and forget what other people think it has no impact on you unless you allow it too. Judging from your display pic you have love around you now I hope and you are obviously an extremely strong person. Best wishes, take care, much love. P

I had a family member say that I probably deserved it because of how I dressed. I was wearing jeans and a tshirt.

I saw another post in boredpanda by the rape victim. If I remember correctly, the rapist himself said "you're ugly so you should be thankful" to her.

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.

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