Maybe “tattle tale” and the subsequent criticism that comes along with the phrase is a way for bullies to be oppressive and maintain control.
Think about it. When you are criticized and ridiculed even more for trying to tell someone of your woes, to try to ask for help, people stop asking for help. This is pretty ridiculous.
Why is it that people get mad at others for telling someone else about their wrongdoing? They were the ones that caused the harm in the first place. They must know their actions are wrong. It’s ridiculous they get angry at the person they have wronged rather than looking inward and realizing and being punished for such mistakes so they learn to stop doing what they’re doing.
“Tattle tale” criticism is just a way to silence people so people can keep doing their bad things.
