Let’s Talk: Epi 2 – Fandom wars/Cyber bulling pt.1

This is a subject I have touched upon a few months ago, I have just now gotten around to doing part 2. Sorry bout that; I have seen many people being bullied over some thing so stupid. It has happened to myself a few times. Though for the most part I ignore it because I know they are trying to get a reaction out of me. I refuse to give them exactly what they want; by reacting and getting angry with them I am giving them what they want, they are having a good laugh at my expense.

The reason some one bullies is because of many different factors.

  1. They are insecure about themselves
  2. They are miserable in their lives, whether it be
    – a) Their being bullied themselves
    – b) Their not getting the attention from their parents that every kid needs.
    – c) They, are not bullied, but see others being bullied and think that’s how their suppose to act.

Whatever the case may be, they are doing what ever it takes to make your life worse so theirs will seem better in comparison. I have had my fair share of hate mail because of the opinions I express.  I will admit I have a lot of opinions others may not agree with, I have a lot to say, and I tend to run my mouth about things I shouldn’t. I am however a girl, it is in our nature to gossip, because of this I have gotten some backlash through my twitter, tumblr accounts for the things I have said.

Frankly I do not care what others have to say to me or about me. I have gotten to a place in my life where I’ve had every kind of hate mail you can think of. Had all the things said to me, words no longer effect me. Plus I am happy in my life and I refuse to allow some one I have never even talked to, let alone met, dictate the rest of my day. I refuse to allow those words to effect me.

This is of course hard to do, trust me. Yet you can do it, look at your life; find the pro’s in your life. Family, friends, work, boyfriend, girlfriend. What do you have in your life to feel good about? Focus on that and focus on that happiness and don’t let some 40 year old child, living in his mama’s basement ruin your life.

As I have mentioned many times before I have seen this happen across the internet. I’ve seen people on tumblr who post the anonymous hate publicly. Many of these people I’ve gotten to know through their blogs and through private conversations. And it annoys me to see how much hatred they get. The following images are screen shots I took of a blog I use to follow. I have of course blurred out the name of the user to protect her. As it’s not my intention to call her out but to show how horrible and pathetic hate mail is.

This girl was being blasted for things she said about Randy Orton. She never said any thing bad, she was actually DEFENDING Randy. Defending him against internet rumors, she wasn’t saying any thing bad, and yet this person felt the need to attack her.

I’m sorry bout that was out of line, why should her tumblr be banned for simply defending a wrestler she is a fan of? If I was a fan of some one, being a true fan means to stick by them no matter what, and defend them against stupid idiots that start rumors just to start drama.

Regardless of internet rumors, the majority of what you read is just that; a rumor. Not every thing on the internet is 100% accurate. Regardless of how you feel about Randy, this is no excuse to attack a fan. Regardless if the fan is following blindly or knows every thing about his “reputation” and yet still follows, still does not give you the right. We do not attack you for the things, or people you enjoy the most.

Regardless of Randy’s personal relationships, which by the way are none of your business, does not make him a bad father. You don’t know what he does with his daughter, do you know first hand? No you don’t because you are either a delusional fan girl, or you are a hater. You are not friends with him, you don’t know him nor any one related or working for him. Therefore you can’t know how he feels about his daughter, or what he does with her.

Regardless of any of that, does not give you the right to take any of it out on a fan… I am so angry about this I can’t even explain to you any more, how stupid and pathetic this is. I am speechless! If you can’t understand any thing I just said, then you won’t ever understand, so I’m going to move on.

….. What….The….F***….Is….This…Shit….?????

This is another thing that I can not understand, was it necessary to call her stupid and ugly? To tell her “Fuck you”…. I just can’t….I honestly don’t know what to say. So I’m just going to leave these photos here for you to make your own decision about them.

I have nothing more to say about it honestly. This is a problem in this society, the younger generations using texting, and social media to bully and push people further to the edge. They don’t realize words leave bigger wounds then physical ones.  Physical wounds heal over time, words are forever. Specially with the internet, once those are out there its done, over with its out there forever. There is no taking it back.

These kids these days feel so safe behind a computer screen and are so unaware of the damage they are doing. I think kids need to serve jail time for it, maybe this will stop them. Specially if the person is then driven to suicide. Negligent homicide…
