The gaslighting sucks. I told a guy off once because as he was passing my friend in the classroom, he physically picked up her chair, with her in it, and moved it.
White guy. Woman of color. Of course.
He claimed it didn’t happen.
Now, I literally had a conversation with this woman and two other people about it. Presumably, we were not subject to a single shared delusion.
He eventually talked his way to, “if it happened, I apologize, but that doesn’t sound like me.”
