Dear Men, it's Time We talk about Harassment Mr. Benjamin Gatt
I am a male – yet even more significantly I am first and foremost a human being. Thus, when I hear about incidents of any kind of violence, like the brutal killing of Sarah Everard which happened in the UK lately, or other verbal or emotional abuse I experience a sense of shock, disgust, sadness and rage at these acts full of violence, cowardice and vileness. However, after those feelings settle down, I also wonder and ask myself: ‘What makes a person able to commit such a callous act?’. ‘Why are these acts still happening in 2021?’ As a Psychologist I observe people, question their behaviour and try to analyse it. This incident is sadly just one of thousands; if not millions, which happen every year.
