I want you to know that abuse is never a right. Abuse cannot be trivialized as just some fun games. Abuse is abuse. Human Rights Violations are just that, they are violations. Abuse is never a right. Abuse is prohibited.

Everyone has a right to privacy. Arbitrary interference with privacy includes many things. This also includes taking pictures of someone in their private life without obtaining consent. It is an invasion of privacy. Be respectful. Have decency. Be a considerate person. Respect the rights of others. My rights end where yours begin, and your rights end where mine begin. Be a decent person. It is long overdue for there to be repercussions for the arbitrary interference of privacy in the lives of others.

“Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.  Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.”

I want you to know that when someone tells you to stop doing something, and rather than respecting the boundaries of that person you continue on in the acts that are an offense and harassment, you are behaving abusively and it is punishable by law.

Economic, social and cultural rights

The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights entered into force in 1976. The human rights that the Covenant seeks to promote and protect include:

  • the right to work in just and favourable conditions;
  • the right to social protection, to an adequate standard of living and to the highest attainable standards of physical and mental well-being;
  • the right to education and the enjoyment of benefits of cultural freedom and scientific progress.

Civil and political rights

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its First Optional Protocol entered into force in 1976. The Second Optional Protocol was adopted in 1989.

The Covenant deals with such rights as freedom of movement; equality before the law; the right to a fair trial and presumption of innocence; freedom of thought, conscience and religion; freedom of opinion and expression; peaceful assembly; freedom of association; participation in public affairs and elections; and protection of minority rights. It prohibits arbitrary deprivation of life; torture, cruel or degrading treatment or punishment; slavery and forced labour; arbitrary arrest or detention; arbitrary interference with privacy; war propaganda; discrimination; and advocacy of racial or religious hatred.

Cruel and degrading treatment, and arbitrary interference with privacy are prohibited. No, no one gets to indulge their abusive desires and call it anything other than what it is. It is wrong. Because it is wrong and inexcusable, it is prohibited.

Abuse is never a right. It is prohibited.

No one ever is in the right in abusing another. It is bad behavior that is forbidden by authority. What you’ve done to me and continue doing to me is wrong. It is punishable by law.
