I am 100% trying to be supportive and not sarcastic as much as humanly possible and if there's ever any ambiguity please smack me because my calibrations might be misaligned. People-ing is hard!!

I'm Jason. I've done about a billion tours in the Great Internet Keyboard Wars, blogging in various places, starting out supporting atheism but realizing the atheist and skeptic communities were rife with racist, sexist, anti-trans bullshit. So I fought those folks instead.

I'm a cishetwhitedude. Mostly. I think I'm a teensy bit gay. I'm also Officially An Old. I have an anxiety disorder. And I'm pretty sure you're just humouring me if you fave my stuff.

In case you're wondering, I'm not dead, but I've had a hell of a... well. Year, really. But the last couple of months have been pretty bad.

How come bosses are always like "you're fired" instead of earthed aired or watered

the existence of airhorns implies the existence of earth, water and firehorns

When I am in a low-posting mode and I get a string of follows it's fairly satisfying to be able to report most of them for spam and/or being shitlords like that "Most Hated" goober.

Ughhhhhhh. That's all I have to say about the last few weeks.

@lousycanuck This.

The amount of *energy* that people are willing to put into being awful to each other continues to surprise me. I mean, I can on some level get being resentful and nasty, but why not just kick back, put on some cartoons and call it a day?

I guess the lulz-high never really lasts, but instead of finding a different kind of satisfaction, they respond by upping their hostility.

Guys if we have the revolution on Thursday my mom can drive us there, I already asked and she says it's fine

If you seriously can't think of any way to "matter" that doesn't involve being cruel to others, that is a failure of society generally, but it's also specifically a failure of imagination on your part. You could try... not being a shitlord. See how that works out for you.

Seriously though... why do people spend time and effort being shitty edgelords? Like, that's a hell of a lot of work. You can't possibly juice enough lulz from it to make it worth your while. Why not "matter" in ways other than making lives miserable? There's so much other shit you could do!

yes, if someone sent me a follow request from a profile that suggests it is full of things I hate, I would simply approve and follow back, sure
i too live in a society
