No it's not. You are just talking about anyone who appears to be one thing but is really another. Which is most people to some extent. Gaslighting is an action, not a being.

Gaslighting is if I told you that this comment I am typing does not really exist and you are only imagining that you are reading this.

Here's a good example:

You posting anonymously trying to get people to believe that it's not you and that there is another (imaginary) person on your side with your same opinions order to manipulate your targets and boost your own warped reality.

Eden gaslighted you. Clear as day, that was.

Yet it's funny how you choose to go after me instead.

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented to the victim with the intent of making them doubt their own memory and perception. It may simply be the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, or it could be the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

Yet what Eden did doesn't count as a "staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim"?

Because that was exactly her intent, and exactly what she accomplished.

Maybe we are both gaslighting each other at the same time.

Now wouldn't that be a nice mindfuck?

And how would you know that?

Just as you keep saying that I can't see myself...maybe you can't see yourself either.

So how the fuck would you know?

Or is this just a convenient double-standard of yours.
