fair warning for newbies: people you see responding to me may not be visible to me, if I don't respond to someone's responses it is not a statement about anything, it is often that I simply didn't see it at all

or that I don't care

or that I am terrible and agree

or that I am terrible and disagree

feel free to assume the worst if you'd like, I am often pretty terrible and you might be right, who knows

not you

and probably not me! ^_^

Quick note for new Mastodonians:

If you try to follow someone and get an hourglass, it means they have to approve your follows.

It is not a reflection on you if this doesn't happen immediately. Notifications about this aren't in the same window as the usual "someone followed you" default notifications.

It's not like Twitter's thing. It's Masto's own thing, and some of us are a bit more security-conscious than others, and some of us are slow to review our follow requests.

Fair warning:

I don't have to wonder about what drives people to terrible actions.

I have COMMITTED terrible actions.

I have experienced virtually no legal action for such, likely never will (IIRC statutes ran out -- or the evidence is all gone, and either way I will confirm no details of anything).

As someone who has actually done terrible shit, I UNDERSTAND what drives people to terrible shit.

The terrible actions still need stopping, just like someone should have stopped me.

I just have to remember there's no point to discussion, people don't learn from that, they never did and never will and that's not how learning or thinking works

and no, I'm not interested in trying to prove it to you with a discussion: consider me the literal counterexample for your "but debate can solve it all" theory

it ain't solving me, sweetheart

shove your debate, I'm sick of talking to those desperately defending their flaws and insecurities

and that's everybody

*carefully stifles another rippingly harsh reply to something*

*carefully stifles a rippingly harsh reply to something*

the really really funny part about all this

is that I'm slowly slipping into Full Blown Wrecked Head Mode over time

I'm starting to become convinced that people I talk to are bots. Not, like, people who said a thing once in a shitpost chain and I responded.

People I'm ALMOST SURE cannot possibly be bots, I'm starting to find myself picking apart their statements in the apparent, desperate hope that I can imagine they're not a human being with that specific failing

but a bot of some sort


"nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure"

it's earth and all humans are there

"yeah, I know"

*experiences disappointment in humanity*

wait, I thought I could not get more disappointed in humanity

SURPRISE! there's literally no bottom for that shit

y'know what

I don't have a polite way to phrase this shit today

I may not ever again

some days I just keep arguing because I know society's bought into the inane concept that 'logic' is meaningful to humans

I don't have it in me to continue speaking to people when I am this blindingly furious

in the past I have been far meaner to the under-thinking than I have intended to be -_-

I'm almost inclined to head over to Twitter and see if I find a less racist pile of microposts to look at

new plan

mute people when they disappoint me instead of continuing to try to explain it, check back in a day or two and see if they've stopped displaying their isms and phobias proudly

it's fucking pointless

humans don't hear what's said, they hear what they want to hear, they always do, they always will


weather changes

we keep making the same shit mistakes

furious, and guaranteed piss-off for a lot of whites Show more

maybe the real enemies we made along the way

were the men too fragile to hear a criticism of men without

and the white people too fragile to hear any fucking criticism of white people ever without

and the heteros too fragile to hear any fucking criticism of hets without

y'know, earlier today I started wondering how the fucking human race managed to survive this long

all this fucking bullshit is definitely reinforcing it

It's Black Friday, the spookiest day of the year, the perfect day to watch Garth Merengi's Dark Place

some people on Mastodon: WHY DO WE HAVE COLOR OPTIONS FOR EMOJI?

me: *stares in vague, silent horror about the Oncoming Whiteness*


me: *starts wondering if this is a bad dream, how the fuck is this anybody's take on Masto who's been here a while and isn't from NAS or something*

Sydney Falk rebroadcasted

So also imma probably keep on being loud about this kind of stuff because it’s my goal to make sure that every non white person on here feels like there is a place for them on here

Because there is. You’re valid, your voice is important and fuck any of these people who try and silence it.

Like just @ me I’ll go off on em for you lmao
