Why do survivors tend to overreact to sceptics?

0

A. When people say that abuse survivors are “making it up to get attention,” “lying,” “deluded by their therapists,” etc., then those who contend that the abuse didn’t happen (because there’s no “hard evidence”) appear to survivors to be siding with the perpetrators. It also serves to invalidate their experience and their life. This may well not be the case from your point of view as a sceptic, but many survivors will perceive you as siding with the perps because your statements are identical to things they heard from people who victimised them.
