I'm noticing that in the latest mod post I put in A_B, people are saying that we need to cut slack to those who don't have A_B on their flist and that they ought to not get in trouble because of the fact they do not frequent A_B very often.



Really? Really really now? Even in a mod post that I've said 'if you've already gotten into the fray off A_B and find out its ON A_B... don't come into A_B?' What part of that is so hard to comprehend. We can look at timestamps to see when you started participating in where so that's already a given...

But if you don't want to get in trouble in A_B when you know DAMN WELL you're trolling elsewhere and you can and will be caught you need to just observe the thread in A_B and call it a day. I mean if you're not going to frequent the community in the first place, it cannot be so hard to keep your commentary to yourself.

Besides, its not even the hypothetical you who gets caught harassing who gets to judge if your comments are actually harassing or not. Which is the whole point of the rule in place in A_B. You may have just gone into Featured Artist X's journal to say 'I like turtles' but for all you know that simple statement to them meant something like this:
Video cut for possibly triggering material. Re: explosions/'terrorist' acts )

Which in turn will make them wig out at the community (Personal Art Spaces & A_B alike), the A_B mods, and lord knows who else. Which means we have to hunt you down and hit you on the nose. And you don't LIKE that because its 'not fair'. Well, tough. This is the reality of harassment because once someone declares it - you have to treat it like a legitimate case even if you know its horseshit. If A_B ends up going the way of Geocities - you can't bawww cuz we warned you.

Ugh. End rant.

If anyone tries to mention X-event sucks on both sides of the spectrum - said anyone is immediately shut down by the SJ-Warriors because 'it never happens to men, the stereotype revolves around women'.

... ... ...

Trick, sit down and STFU. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?! How can you holler and scream about stereotype being so unfair when in your so-called attempt to educate, you just force fed it down the throat of a person who is trying to give you what you want - good ol' fashioned EQUALITY.

That shit right there puts my panties in a big ol twist. If you want something done right, don't fucking do it wrong! Sitting there yammering about how women are so disadvantaged doesn't equal them suddenly getting AN advantage. To me, its no different than a furry going 'Bwaaah' cuz they can't go to a god damn furry con cuz they blew their check on a Starfinder commission that she'll never cough up!

Shit stinks. Regardless of your gender, dammit. Stop trying to compare or one-up in order to 'show the other side's privilege'. Because if you ask me, there are two privileges that everyone (E V E R Y O N E) is entitled to - clean water, and food.

But we can't even get THAT straightened out so why cry about something as ridiculous as that?

Privilege

Stop using this word. Stop using it right now.

You lost the privilege use it, when you... actually decided to sit there and assume the incorrect thing about a group of people who have to attempt to balance a very large majority of minorities. Missteps will occur, but they will be corrected with fairness, not pitchforks. Have you SEEN the warm response the Westboro Baptist Church gets?

Stand with some humility rather than some false sense of superiority. Ears will be more inclined to listen and listen well.
