Ambient Abuse

This is what I've been through. Never heard this term for it:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.p ... nt%20Abuse

No one would believe me if they really knew. The victims look like the ones in the wrong, whilst the perpetrator looks like they're in the right.

Odd that I never knew gaslighting had an offical name.

So why not just call it Ambient Abuse instead of Gaslighting?

Why leave room for people to hear about this very serious form of emotional abuse and be able to say, "Gaslighting isn't an offical term"....so that they could gaslight gaslightings existence :arrow:

Apparently i've been abusing my sister.
She will get over it.
Didn't hear of this before.

I do not understand your question:
"Why leave room for people to hear about this very serious form of emotional abuse and be able to say, "Gaslighting isn't an offical term"....so that they could gaslight gaslightings existence"

Why does it matter how you call it? It still has the same meaning.
