Things that upset you (in general)

    Oh dang, just remembered one I've been passively upset about for some years by now! I don't know how many others are feeling as I do, but nowadays you can't really say any blunt, harsh or extreme opinion without someone asking you to smoothen it, bombard you with facts or question your understanding (although I've done that too sometimes and probably pooped someone elses fun). Even when you do have some deeply reasoned opinions, sometimes it's more refreshing to just say something out of attitude and be like screw what everyone else thinks. These attitudes have also spread to media, so it's no longer entertaining - and heck, media if anything should be entertaining!

    I recall some 80s and early 90s shows which I basicly liked because of that attitude thing. Sure, I used to criticise some aspects of it like sexualising female chars too much or giving them only "can be badass but still dependent on men to rescue them" roles and this has gotten better in the newer versions of old shows, for example Transformers! But otherwise the newer versions are less hilarious and less uplifting plot and character wise, even if not too bland and over-appropriate. Even politicians in the real world have more color to their personalities!

    I also noticed this in various roleplaying communities. Sure you can still roleplay an extreme evil character, but a character with prejudiges like "this race is rotten, i want to destroy it" or "wo/men should be more... *acts like total jerk*" etc etc... I often get a feeling people are cautious if not even afraid of roleplaying those because they'd often end up into tiresome conversations about "let's love and understand instead of living in petty prejudiges" than find their hilariously egoistic tribes or like-minded people in general.

    I also miss the old good vs evil setting in media, because in most cases it didn't negate traitors nor indifference/neutrality from existing!

    Oh yeah, before I forget... I vote Lawrence Limburger for the next president of any country aside from my own! Hah!

    I found a psych evaluation my school district did when I was in high school and a lot of things that they wrote down was either inaccurate and out of context because they never asked me to explain some of the stuff told to them by a woman that made stuff up about me often or made to seem like I was the reason for it. They even blamed me for needing to be put into the adaptive gym class after I kept being assaulted for months in the locker room and I was terrified of going to to class. I get assaulted and yet it’s my fault for naturally being terrified of gym class and not wanting to participate out of fear anything I said or did might add fuel to the fire and cause the assault to happen even more? I’m definitely showing this to my therapist the next time we meet so she can fully understand the depth of trauma I experienced in high school.

    It also angers me whenever people start blaming victims of any type of abuse or assault on them and not the perpetrator. I never asked to be assaulted by just walking down the hall to get to class or for having to turn around to get into my locker to get my belongings. Do you think I really wanted to be assaulted by doing those things? Blaming the victim causes many negative behaviors as a result of feeling so ashamed of being blamed for something that the victim didn’t even want to happen.
