MR. SENSITIVE

Mr. Sensitive appears to be the diametric opposite of the Drill Sergeant. He is soft-spoken, gentle, and supportive—when he isn’t being abusive. He loves the language of feelings,…

This is very important: If you are a college-aged women, you may encounter abusers that fit this profile. The college environment is often an incubator for these types of abusers. These abusers use familiar, new-age “feminist” rhetoric to defend their behavior and effectively avoid taking responsibility for their abusive actions. You may see them frequently posting or commenting on feminist articles on facebook, or be particularly outspoken about feminist other minority issues. How could a man who identifies with a feminist cause or talks about how he supports women simultaneously be an abuser? That exact question is what makes these abusers so dangerous. "Mr. Sensitive" builds an image of himself, often through social media or activism groups, as a person who is in touch with his emotions and identifies with women and their struggles. He is outspoken about his own enlightenment, and goes to great lengths to proclaim how he would never be “one of those guys” who hurt or abuse women, that he is in fact defender of women. Often, this mentality generates entitled behavior, as Mr. Sensitive believes that women should be grateful to him for not being like “those other guys.” These types of abusers can be extremely controlling and emotionally manipulative, and act offended if you express discomfort or dislike toward their behavior. These abusers are adept at making their victims feel as if they are in the wrong. For example, if a woman expresses discomfort with one of Mr. Sensitive’s inappropriate behaviors (such as touching or hugging her when she has clearly expressed her discomfort) , he will immediately take offense to avoid taking responsibility. He may ask her “Why don’t you trust me?” or justify his actions through “trauma” caused by his “emotional issues” in an attempt to make her feel as if she is in the wrong. Mr. Sensitive often employs psychobabble: long-winded arguments or explanations designed to overwhelm the victim and make them feel as if they have done wrong, when in fact they have done nothing. Because of Mr. Sensitive’s well-cultivated image, it is often difficult for people outside of the victim-abuser relationship to recognize Mr. Sensitive’s manipulative, controlling behavior.

Who in this world is truly unchanging?
Today we cross the towering mountains of vanity,
unswayed by superficial dreams.” — Iroha
