Here's an expansion on it:

Personally, I think it's a limited argument. Rape, chronic harrassment etc yes absolutely. Anyone *traumatised* by much lesser stuff like one arse pat or small stuff should get the fuck over it. And I say that as someone who's been upset about smaller stuff. There is a scale of reaction (for each individual).
Over-reaction calls for reaction like calls of 'witch hunt' and lessening the impact of calling out abuse.
get the fuck over it. really.
you're assuming that the "one arse pat" is the only event thats happened to the person that is traumatised. it could trigger reminders of previous abusive patternsr.
rule 1 as a carer. dont assume that you know everything about anyone in your care.
That’s exactly why Thangy said “one arse pat”.
