"Nobody Ever Changes"

According to any number of people with feminist associations, nobody ever changes. Once a sociopath always a sociopath; once a narcissist always a narcissist; and once an abuser always an abuser. As I have heard it said in a movie, “Change is bullshit. People don't change; they become more of what they are.”

My response to the people who believe this: You are absolute fools.

“Nobody ever changes.” Oh yeah. So the Germans are still Nazis. The Russians are still Stalinists. The Americans are still slaveowners. People change, all the time, in all sorts of ways and for all sorts of reasons. For better, for worse, for a mix. In any direction.

Look at these women themselves. They went from kind, generous peace-and-love hippie idealists to paranoid, vicious, mean-spirited fascist jerks. Nobody ever changes. Well these women are obvious proof to the contrary. They changed for the worse. Any number of others can – and constantly do – change for the better.

In my former school there were any number of people who turned from bullies to compassionate and thoughtful human beings. There was also someone who turned from a thoughtful person into an absolute jerk. Feminists themselves changed from being loving and generous to being hateful and awful. They changed from good people into horrible people as a result of beliefs that they have espoused.

They can change. So can anyone else.
