Let's talk about violence.



Are you violent? Why are you violent? Are you not? Why not? How do you deal with it?

Personally, I can't say I'm particularly violent. I have done violent things as a kid, but not in a long time. I might get angry and throw around words, grit my teeth and clench my fists, but I don't throw punches or strike people. Not to say that there isn't violence in me, it's more like that if I let a little of my violent side out, it'll all come crashing down like an avalanche, resulting in me seriously hurting someone, or hurting myself.

What about you?


Ooh, Phersu! Edgy topic! How could you? What about the children?

Well, to all that....bugger off. Better to discuss it than to ignore it.

Nope. This is the reason why I try not to be violent when I'm angry. Threaten or insult? Sure. Fight? Ehhh, not a good idea. It's all just below the surface, just waiting for someone to push me a step farther than I can handle.

Violence is the great equalizer.
Everybody dies in the end. Only post 1945 has controlled mass killing become so much easier.

Actually, for me it's the reason why I try NOT to get angry. People always wonder what it would be like for me to get angry because they never see it and cannot imagine it. My answer is always that it's better for them that it stay that way.

I'm too tired and lazy to be violent. Whenever I start to get mad I get sleepy and usually just want to go take a nap. Someone would have to do something pretty serious that I simply couldn't ignore for me to get violent. At that time I would attack and most likely try to strangle the person to death. If I was unable to do so I would just try to make it so they couldn't fight anymore...and then I would probably....well....do stuff to continue venting my anger. If I could disable them without killing them it would be ideal but I typically go for the throat first when things get that serious. Of course most likely I would lose the fight so me trying to kill the person isn't really an issue too awfully much.

Violence takes too much energy out of me. I don't think I'm a violent person. I will try to use words instead. If words won't help, then I ignore and walk away. You'll have to do something so serious or do something to something/someone that I care about for me to get violent. When I do get violent, I'm pretty much like:

"...if I let a little of my violent side out, it'll all come crashing down like an avalanche, resulting in me seriously hurting someone, or hurting myself..."

Not only is it counter-productive and unnecessary to solve problems this way, its also unattractive, physical or otherwise.

As you know there are many forms of violence. Physical, verbal, psychological, etc. I haven't had a physical altercation(but've have gotten close), though I've been in many out-of-hand verbal altercations I'm not proud of.

Like many introverts out there, I really hate conflict. If I can avoid it, I will. I'd consider myself to be one of the least violent people I know.

I was violent as a kid, but I've calmed down quite a bit. I don't throw punches anymore. I swear a lot in place of that though.

You don't want to be. It's hard to reign it in, and you don't really want to. It's addictive, the rush and the thrill....the drugs your brain producing. Dopamine, adrenaline.....

Sparring was a blast, but you can't really go all out in there either. Can't be too violent. Can't really let loose.

I suppose it's an odd thing to hear, and it's just as odd and awkward to explain, the desire to hurt and be hurt in turn.

Stop it! Euphemia is NOT a violent person. Blame Lelouch for that little "accident" okay.
