Mind readers are fucking scary, but they never do it truly right.
If you want to scare a man into submission you need to bring up more fucked up shit, I am sure she has seen worse things.
Traumatizing events of other people should have taught a better person to avoid using those powers, only one truly evil would use them for petty fights.
Maybe the writer has not experienced anything truly evil in his life, I guess normalfags don't have family members diddle you or domestic abuse. They live a life where the maximum evil is someone shitposting behind anonymity
