She started to talk to him about his interests and her kidnapper began to view her as a person he could trust. Eventually, he declared that he was in love with her. After 10 days of captivity, he allowed Elizabeth to borrow his cell phone to play games on it. Naturally, when he left, she used it to call her mother.

This is actually a smart thing to do. If you are ever kidnapped, you should try to humanize yourself & get close to your captors. Do not challenge them, rather try to show them that you are worthy of their respect. If you speak the same language, try to talk with them and exchange information. Learn about them and let them learn about you. Try to relate to them.  Family could be a safe topic depending on the situation. If they see you as a person, your quality of life as a captive and your probability of survival go way up. This creates the reverse-Stockholm Syndrome on them in which they can express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings towards you. Now you might have the opportunity to escape like the girl above did!

Something I did based on what I learned from my psychology class. Sometimes words can leave a mental and emotional mark on people, that could possibly affect their self esteem or affect them psychologically.

It wasn’t until I saw these lovely gifsets that really had me thinking. Often times you’ll see a lot of media critics questioning characters sexuality because they don’t have a love interest, or fanfictions always portraying them wrong, or people flat out assuming this or that about a character. Bottom line, there are words that can really hurt someone.
