"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent," more like "I have no idea how abuse works and my misguided attempts at empowering people are hurtful and bullshit."
It’s like saying fire can only burn you if you let it. No. Fire does not ask for permission. Violence does not ask for permission. Abusers do not ask for permission. Suggesting that you have to give someone your “consent” in order for someone to truly hurt you is a classic victim-blaming thought process.
