“Mean words are only words” is always a sad excuse though.

“I can use use mean words but how dare you call me a bigot / misogynist / racist”.

See the problem with that logic?

“Words don’t matter” – proceeds to prove they care about words.

I don’t know why Andrew thought I referred to him by those words. I was generalizing to a common issue.

Trolling is very 4chan circa 2012. But it’s nice to know it continues.

Adults usually grow out of adolescent games, not that I’m presuming your age or maturity level.

I’m saving a fellow adult man from continuing baffoonary. You make us all look bad.

I think the world’s getting better but there’s always hiccups. We’re in a regrouping state. Fear, conservatism, some they is gonna get the us thing. But it’ll pass again. Meanwhile new shit will get made and unless we lose the internet and access dwindles, each new generation will be exposed to more and learn more, both for better and worse but they’ll have to figure it out.
