I happened to be on twitter when I noticed a friend had posted an interesting blog (or several) and I was quite disturbed. It felt like secondary school, one person says something towards someone else, it goes back and forth and gets unpleasant. But then a third party gets involved and they make things a lot worse.
One of the more disgusting sights I’ve ever witnessed is when individuals uninvolved in the original conflict wade in and try to encouraging ganging up one party.
Let me put it to you straight. This is bullying.
There is a difference between standing up for someone and two girls who got into an argument (regardless of who started it), when both made statements that could be deemed inappropriate and unnecessary.
What is the world coming to when we can’t communicate like civilised human beings? Hurling hate speech or suggesting a mass harassment is in any way, shape or form appropriate, well then, god forbid the day you ever say something on the internet that is incorrect or misconstrue and someone decides that gives them the green light to terrorize you!
You guys please go sent thegoddamazon some love. She is literally being trolled by this piece of trash. He is telling her how she needs to handle being raped and she has REPEATEDLY asked him to leave her alone. He is now sending messages PROUDLY…
This is ridiculous.
I feel like I’m back in secondary school.
An appropriate response to Spiffy’s initial statements would have been to a)ignore them, b)comment that although you respect their opinion, you disagree c) if you believe she was ignorant towards your religion, engage Spiffy in a calm and intelligent debate that seeks to enlighten her.
I don’t know the full conversation, if this was the first time Spiffy had ever contacted thegoddamazon, then yes I would agree, her statements are insensitive and thegoddamazon has every right to execute any of the previously mentioned actions and/or report to the mods.
Thegoddamazon does NOT have the right to tell Spiffy to die. That was an unnecessary and excessive response.
Racismschool does NOT have the right to rally people against Spiffy. I find it truly daunting that Spiffy is receiving more abuse for remarking about another’s religion than the user who made comments regarding rape. Priorities?
