My Theory About Child Abusers

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

I recently read an article in the Scientific American Mind about competition. It says people feel better about wasting a weaker opponent. Growing up in a household that revolved largely around soccer, i understood this. It feels better to say you hammered an opponent than saying you beat them 1 to 0.


Here's the clincher. I feel that homo sapiens who hurt kids or inflict trauma on others for kicks have this trait but take it too far. Homo Sapiens who hurt others like this are cowards. They know they are, so they have to take advantage of ppl they think are weaker. However the person who sustained the trauma is not weak because s/he does not need to hurt others to feel big.

P.S. I use homo sapien because I don't consider humans who hurt others like that to have personhood.
