I'm a egalitarian and sometimes my views actually separate people who feel a different way because of their life experiences and personal values.

After learning about the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre on the news, I think I've truly lost faith in humanity. I don't give any shit or fucks any more about our future on this planet as a species. Just live out the rest of my life pursuing pleasure.

We're a fucked up world and a fucked up society. I used to pine for the loss of my innocence and wish I wasn't as numb, bitter, or cynical. But now, I think the only way to protect yourself from the ugliness and horrors of the real world is to be a monster. A monster that is apathetic and cold.


I quote you because I ache every time I hear someone who feels this way, and I feel powerless and like a failure for not being effective enough to reach you. Sometimes I have to physically leave a website or page to resist commenting, because I know there really is nothing I can do at a distance. But that leaves me feeling bitter and hollow. Because I know you and others have legitimate reasons to feel that way, and I feel so much anger at people in the world for doing that to you.

There's nothing wrong with being apathetic and cold. I've learned that sometimes you need apathy when you deal with the monsters, and coldness to do what you have to do. And sometimes you need apathy for the victims so you can keep clear-headed and focused, and distanced (not quite cold) enough to do your part. But I believe in empathy too. Yes, I agree you do need to become a monster in that way. You need to understand what drove a person to evil, and what can prevent it. And empathy with the victims to not just aid them in their pain, but it helps you to truly see what evil can do to someone.

I go thru periods of deep apathy and then of deep empathy. My Mom doesn't think it's healthy, but it keeps me functioning, balanced, and able to deal.

I'd like to know why I get blamed for the actions or inactions of other ppl. Am I psychic? Am I a mind reader? Do I have the ability to mind control? Can I possess people? Leave me the hell alone and take up your problems with people to the actual people who caused them.

I'd also like to know where the word "maid" is written on my face, 'cause I sure as hell am not one. Pick up your own damn mess.....and you can kiss my ass if you don't like me on the internet (Crunchyroll, etc.). I did/do my responsibilities, unlike you who f*ck around all day playing games, sleeping & eating when you're not even hungry while the sh*t hits the fan 'cause you left your responsibilities unattended to.

...and b*tch, mind your own damn business. You don't know me or my family so stop commenting like you think you do. Mind the mess in your own backyard....like you should have anything to say, all your kids are from different dads and you don't even know some of the dads names....and you were married to only one of them....and even then it didn't last. So shut the f*uck about marriage, 'cause you haven't got a clue. I married for love, not money like you tried to, so go f*ck a bankroll.

I feel better now.
