Idk if this is too personal but is there a reason you call your abuser The Lizard?
hi anon gosh I would be happier if you were not anonymous
it is not a big story! somebody described him as a “lizard in a person suit” once, either me, or someone else in my circle, because he is an intensely creepy person with a lot of intensely creepy ideas and behaviors but he has a good, you know, person suit. he can mask his deep creepiness very well for a long time. many people can do that.
he also does this thing where he makes jokes about what a like, creepy misogynist controlling manipulative scary person he is! like, he makes jokes about how similar he is to Patrick Bateman and Joffery McGameofThrones and some particularly creepy guy from Mad Men. he is like “ha ha I am a bad person” and somehow it distracts people from the fact that he is actual genuinely a dangerous person? I am not sure how this works but it is kind of unsettling!
so, in conclusion, he has the capacity to mask his innate terribleness, as many terrible people do, from whence was born the moniker “lizard in a person suit” which was then just shortened to “the lizard”
