Yes, but I decided to put things people usually don't get or barely get punished for. They can still go to jail for animal abuse, but someone gaslighting you won't even get a fine.
It’s rare and short. Being a jerk shouldn’t be criminal. The criminal system is a terrible instrument to regulate being a well socialized individual. America in particular has far too many people in prison, not too few.
We need more harder criminals in jail. If a family member of yours overdosed and died, would you want the person who gave them the drugs who killed them in prison for life.
Yes, it is bad. Emotional abusive relationships can scar people for life. I am not talking about a stranger online disagreeing with the fact that you are vegan/Muslim/ feminist. Those are beliefs and people have the right to have different opinions. But I can assure you that spending time with a narcissist or someone toxic can mess up with your life very badly and they will do it again because there is no law to punish that behaviour.
But these people can still live their normal life's.There are people with disabilities who can't do that.
@JessieBellll They're not living their normal lives if they are left with anxiety, depression, and/or PTSD that they have to live with for the rest of their life. Also, this question does not ask about physical disabilities as an answer choice.
They do live their everyday life, they are not constrained like a blind person would be.They have a chance and hope.
@JessieBellll Many of them become suicidal. That's not having hope. I still am not sure why you're comparing emotional abuse situations to physical disabilities. That's not relevant to this question.
Some do, but many are fine and live their life like any other person would.
My point is mental problems are not as important while obviously bad.
@JessieBellll You seem to be a very heartless person. Either that or you've had a very easy life.
JessieBellll, of stop. Yes, they are fucking bad, some things never heal properly, it can lead people to suicide. Stop that bullshit. Emotional abuse is about as bad as physical abuse, except you can forget the pain of a slap, butyou can relive the pain of being cheated, lied, manipulated and so on thousands of times. As long as the memory lasts you will feel hurt by some things if they were bad, even after therapy
No, you can live your normal life like you used to.They are not life changing events.
@JessieBellll No you cannot. Not being able to work, find a partner, not being able to sleep for weeks- you can not "live" life. You suffer every day. It never stops.

I disagree with murder and terrorism, but not rape, or child abuse unless its pedophilia. Mental problems do not stop the person from living their life.
@JessieBellll Emotional terrorism kills the soul and breaks the spirit. As someone who has suffered many years, and has PTSD, anxiety, depression, suicide attempts, crippled spine, "mental" problems make life a living hell. " You carry the cure in your own heart" by Andrew Vachss, lawyer for tortured children, makes that point clear and straight.
Someone not agreeing with your religion isn't emotional abuse.Emotional abuse would be someone gaslighting, lying, insulting, manipulating, cheating and so on.I have every right to not agree to a religion. That is a set of beliefs and their beliefs may be against mine or human rights. Treating someone poorly for no other reason than the fact they are a believer of a certain religion is different.
But, If someone believes in a religion, people must not make fun of his/her religion because it can hurt a believer in a way the non believer can't understand. And believer should also not bash other religious faith either. It's like who, so ever believing what ever religion as long as it is not promoting terrorism should not be made fun of. I'm a Christian if you'd make fun of Christianity it would be hurtful me. Applies to all religion.
Your religion is also sexist and homophobic, that hurts women and gays too, and women make up for half of the world's population. I have every right to criticize your religion, it is a set of beliefs, not something you were born with and can't change. Of course, people should criticize the ideas, not the person believing it and it should be done respectfully. But that isn't emotional abuse.
Sure! You can criticize it and if you don't like it please leave Christianity and follow or accept whatever you want to. We're a free country. But problem arises when people start to abuse someone just BC he/she is a Christian or whatever religion. I'm against that. I don't think it's right insult anyone's religion just bc you disagree to it. If you disagree don't follow that religion.
Your second and third paragraph aren't related. I can say anyhing I want about a religion. Attacking someone just because they are Christian is different. As long as they don't harm anyone there is no point in doing so. But if they do harm someone that is beyond religion at that point. I personally see no big difference in someone getting bullied because they are Christian vs because they are vegan for example. I don't see why it requires more attention than regular bullying. If anything, we should have worse punishments for bullying, not because you got attacked because you were Christian. The fact you are Christian is irrelevant here.
I think we took the conversation completely off the topic. But all I wanted to say is, emotional abuse is worst among all three. According to me. And I defined emotional abuse what it is meant to me. I really didn't intend to have a debate on religion.
JessieBellll, I would never wish harm on you or anyone. But being raped or abused as kid will always be in the victims head. Some can deal with more than others. I hope no one ever harms you in that way But if so you would definitely change your way of thinking.
@TacoBaco rape and child abuse won't stop you from living your life
Exactly!!! With a one sentence false declaration the accused will have his life ruin for ever.
