The picture in the OP IS one and the same person. But your anger can’t stomp it out of yourself. Just accept. Adapt.

when you’re 8 years old, the worst thing to be is gay. You don’t know what it means, just that it’s bad.

Then you learn what it means. By that point, most kids stopped caring. A few are still stuck in the 3rd grade though.

====

Interestingly, our use of “fag” is not a pile of sticks. Rather, it’s a subservient role in schools, something like indentured servitude.

====

here’s spinners too right? Gotta have spinners. I wonder if they have a fidget spinner style tire spinners now?

===

You appear to be speaking to the voices in your head Morgan.

===

It’s more likely you’re talking to trolls Morgan whose sexuality is unknown. Therefore…

===

Wherever you go, there you are. If you hate gay people when you’re alone, then there’s nobody else to hate but who you see in the mirror.

I was gonna do it in a Yoda voice but I didn’t. I doubt he had a wife.

====

Once upon a time they used a pink triangle on a black background. I like rainbows. It was in 2003 one of my nieces informed me that “that’s the gay flag now”. Didn’t stop me from using my favorite mug.

====

Nah man that’s 2013 stuff.

It’s a closed forum, blowing off steam.

===

That stuff’s starting to become criminal now. I never did it anyway ’cause its not my thing but they’re catching on to it.

====

Always strikes me as 7th grade meangirl stuff. Not my thing.

====

They get other kids to kill themselves then brag about it. I’d say that know what they’re doing.

===

There’s that “one guy” in a group that goes too far. I’ve been that guy too. Some kind of guy code, I dunno.

===

I gave up on internet privacy back in 2002 when Google got all the Usenet newsgroups and my stupid shit I posted in 1991/1992 was there for a search. I was pissed but kinda said ‘fuck it’ after that.

===

Well, it all depends on needs and stuff. Like me, I’m a ‘friend collector’. Are there are any ‘real world’ friends on there? Hard to say. But if I had a real life social network mirrored online, then yeah, caution would be wise.

====

Thing is, the moment you get online,privacy goes away. It’s a kindness that FB allows friend list lockdowns but they’ve made mistakes, especially with their APIs, exposing friends lists now and again. bots suck out your friends, store them, and next thing you know, you see “Is your name [xxxx]? Do you know [yyyy]? and you can’t figure out how they found out on a far off site.

====

Oh definitely – put whatever walls up you need. Every bit helps. I’ve written code to pull friends’ lists off of social network sites before and it’s not too hard, usually for marketing stuff. My favorite was messing with Myspace and running a thing that snagged me 27,000 friends on there before I got bored of tying up my laptop.

I used that to up my status on sites that measured such things.

But generally, I run naked online. From 2012-14 I had a pretty popular Minecraft server. No firewalls. People would threaten to DDoS. I’d be like go for it. Still, I haven’t made enemies that were nutter enough to go on the personal attack. I don’t venture into those corners of the net too often which is a help.

====

“We accept you just the way you are.”
NO NO DON’T ACCEPT ME! HATE ME!

===

That’s the thing. Times have changed. Online is an extension of real life now, interwoven into our lives, our psyches. Maybe back when it was the realm of nerds like me it was different but now the geographical limitations _are_ overcome, and texting is no longer that far off from whispering incessantly in the ear or a physical push.

The activity is so common. I was in a group which had the normal shennanigans and then one person starts going off on all the ways this other person should off themselves.

He was doing the thing where they pull bits of someone’s profile into meme pictures and stuff.

But then he was advocating calling the guy’s boss, mucking around with his wife’s Facebook page and stuff.

At that point I was like “dude, that’s 2013. Times are changing. This is a closed group and everybody’s blowing off steam. Don’t cross that line man.” [not my exact words but the ‘gist’].

Another guy joined me in pulling that guy back from idiocy. Seemed to have worked.

Verbal instructions by a police officer must be complied with or else you could find yourself dead.

Significant other gives verbal instructions must be ignored or you could find yourself dead.

Laws are weird.

Interesting – I assumed “undue influence” was a part of the verdict but I wasn’t following it closely, just the headlines.

But a quick search showed why the case is different in Massachusetts.

Suicide isn’t illegal in Massachusetts, therefore not a crime. In other states, suicide is a crime. Therefore, its “assisted suicide”.

So, depends on location. And this is just the USA.

—-

Interesting – in this case, while there were a few overturnings, in the end he was convicted of assisting suicide.

So, yelling jump *could* theoretically land you in prison. Good.

Since 1942 apparently, “fighting words” is not protected speech.

There’s other exceptions.
