This time Nick is joined by Vanessa, a forensic psychology doctoral student and one of the hosts of VeganSci podcast. We discuss some of the content we taught in a Criminology unit on victims of crime, focusing on Nils Christie’s ideal victim concept and how it can help in understanding how the legal system, media and community respond to victims of crime. We also discuss: the monster myth, just world theory and what we can to do challenge victim blaming.

Nick also covers content warnings and free speech, as well as Julian Assange breaking his pledge to travel to the United States if whistleblower Chelsea Manning was pardoned.

This episode features Katie’s talk ‘Getting Trigger Happy With Trigger Warnings. Mental Health, (dis)ability And Activism’. The full version of this talk is embedded below and you can also listen to the full version and the Q and A following the talk here. You can access the PowerPoint presentation for this talk here and it is also embedded below. This talk was given at the most recent Institute for Critical Animal Studies Oceania conference – see the notes for our 108th episode for links to all of the talks from that conference.

This talk is relevant on an on-going basis but we were particularly inspired to put it out on an episode in light of recent comments by Stephen Fry, which criticised trigger warnings, as well as accusing victims of abuse of ‘self-pity’. He has since apologised for (some of) the comments.

Also covered throughout the episode is: content warnings, trigger warnings and free speech, as well as research that (apparently) shows that trigger warnings are counter-productivewe disagree!

Katie couldn’t fit activist burnout into her talk – but check out our 29th episode (featuring the Melbourne Street Medic Collective) and Plan to Thrive for some resources on this topic.
