Captain Birdseye,

You are focusing on a word, "blame," instead of the concept.

The phenomenon is ancient and widespread, but I got the terminology from "The Women's Movement." (Don't know what is was called in the UK)

When the term was invented, I assume that "Blame" was a conscious choice and that the intention was to create a pejorative term. That was also my intention when I used the term.
