It seems that a number of people have grown unaware that I treat FB like I would my living room. And if you start throwing down in my living room, (a giant living room made up of a lot of people you might not know personally, who's situation in life you may be blissfully unaware,) I'm going to turn the lights off and toss ya'll out in the street.
I can not wander around the internet without feeling attacked for almost every aspect of my life right now.

I'm a heavy fighter, so I'm a horrible anti-fencer.

I'm deeply disappointed about how the kingdom has handled this past fall crown, but I should just suck it up and accept it, otherwise I'm anti-kingdom.

I was raised with religion, and science tell us that that's unnecessary for morality, so I'm just a quaint backwards person with an invisible friend.

I'm a person who has always felt strongly about protecting the rights of my LGBT friends, but a familial situation has made it such that I have had second, (and third, and forth) thoughts about just how deep those convictions go. But I'm battered over the head every day with how if I don't absolutely believe in championing their rights (even to the detriment of other's) I'm a horrible person.

I drive a regular old gas powered car. I must hate the environment.

I raise beef cattle and eat them. I must hate animals.

I rent, work 8 hours a day and do not have a fenced in back yard. Therefore I must be an unfit dog owner.

I don't have kids and I don't have any idea about anything, so I'm unfit to have opinions.

I believe in responsible gun ownership. And that means tests and licensing.
So depending who you talk to, I'm either a monster who's pro-gun, or I'm a terrible anti-gun person for thinking they need better nationwide regulation.

I'll be 35 in May. The internet tells me I'm failure for not having matching dinnerware. In the past week, I've also been told via the electrons that I'm a failure for not having kids, for not being married, for not having a job that I LURV, for not having enough set aside for retirement, for not being proactive enough about my career, for having an opinion, for not having an opinion. That I'm going to die from any of a dozen different forms of cancer, so I should give give give, as if giving all spare income may somehow spare me from the prostate cancer from which I'm surely going to die...
Waaaaaaait a minute....

I constantly feel utterly damned if I do, damned if I don't.
Doesn't make getting out of bed every morning any easier.

Right there with you on most of this, M'dear.

Illigitemi Non Carborundum.
Live your life in a way that makes you happy and proud of yourself.
The rest of the world is mostly "Normies:". a 100 IQ is "Normal"
You are better than that.
I know there are people who will call this attitude of mine "Condescending,
"Superior", and "steeped in privilege". That might be so, I have to admit.
I do my best, day to day, as do you. I play the ball where it lies, and try
my best to play fair.
Isn't that the best anyone can do?

It is. Some days it's just easier than others.
Thank you.

Forgot one thing

You're posting about it, so you're a self-centered whiner.

I forget who said it but it was basically "There are the same number of assholes in the world, but now thanks to the Internet they are all in my living room"

Love you anyway, and fuck them all. So there.

PS And I'm gonna die from ovarian cancer, or at least that's according to the SPAM I get.

Edited for unkind content.

I'll just leave it at, you're a ridiculously good person.

All I can do is try.

Yeah, Facebook is good for making you feel that way. All the click-magnet crap is formatted in absolutist terms, and it's really not helpful for anyone.

You decide who you are and whether your ideas make you a bad person. Personally, I'm not too worried about you.

I went through and cleared out a lot of unhelpful individuals, Have been more pro-active about using the "I don't want to see this option" and have dumped a number of groups that have gone particularly inflammatory lately. I'll see if that helps. There are a few far flung people for whom this is the best way of keeping in touch, like my cousins down south, but I'm constantly asking myself if it's worth it.

Thank you.

Wow. I never realized you sucked so much.
Well, I'm not on Facebook so I can keep thinking that you rock :)
