I often wish it were just possible to walk away.
to take a time out.
the best i can do is, like, listening to fic, playing video games, in bed while eating chocolate
and even then…
so many fics have a lot of fucking problems. and it is really just about finding ones that won’t make you scream with frustration.
when you see all this hubub about ‘filter bubbles’ it becomes super clear that they are talking about privileged ppl
going on about how google and other stuff creates this bubble where you never experience/see viewpoints that challenge your own, such that your entire world becomes a giant confirmation bias.
as many ppl demonstrate that they just don’t fucking understand
this is why many of us get peeved and fucking enraged when ppl are shitty on tumblr or twitter or whatever the fuck.
because it is one of the few spaces where we have even a tiny ability to actually control and set boundaries.
one of the few places where we can actually get confirmation and affirmation of our views.
of being challenged all the fucking time. instead of (this is me today) having to hold my pee past the point of pain because washrooms are fucking terrifying now. instead of being dehumanized, humiliated, and shit on.
and all those assholes going on about how
‘this is a public blooooooggggggg’
as if we don’t fucking know better than they do
just how public it all is
and exactly what kind of treatment we expect and know we’ll get in ~public~
