All i have to ask is: What is the point in all this? what do you, who write this blog, have to gain? from what i’ve seen, you’re wasting your time.
Alright, since literally the same question is being asked over and over,
I suppose an analogy is needed to explain so let’s have a mini story
time, shall we? (And since there are rather dense people “reading” I
will clarify that this story is not a real story though the events are similar. It is to be used for example
Once upon a time, a young lady, that we shall call Mary, decided she was bored and hoped
online to have some fun on the world wide web. After blogging with her
friends, Mary noticed a reblog asking people to come to the aide of
another young lady being abused by her family. Mary, being the
kindhearted person she is, immediately joins the group to help in any
way she can and starts donating time, money, and affection to the poor abused girl. Months pass and Mary has made friends with the girl and chats with her regularly now that the girl has been removed from
her horrible situation and they are quite happy! *Yay!!*
day, the subject of the abuse was brought up by another friend of both
Mary and the girl but to Mary’s surprise, the girl responded a little
angrily that the abuse wasn’t as bad as people made it seem!
confused since the girl had said herself that she was in need of escape
from the horrible abuse, starts asking the girl to clarify only to be
met with hostility!
Now confused and a little hurt, Mary started chatting with others of the support group
that was made for the abused girl and realized that quite a few things weren’t adding
up! Mary immediately took the girl aside and tried to ask about the
things she discovered and was sure that there must be some sort of misunderstanding since this was her good and wonderful friend! When the girl started to explain her side, tagging on excuses to every lie that she revealed while still denying responsibility for the lies told. Mary couldn’t believe it! This girl she knew for such a long time and counted as a friend had lied to her! Word spread to the others as they each began to question the situation.
girl, feeling cornered now that her stories had been unraveled, quickly
fled back home and started erasing all the evidence she could of the
whole situation and cut ties with everyone who felt anger for her
Mary, feeling hurt as well decided to LET THE SITUATION
DROP. ‘Why not just wipe my hands clean of the situation and just move on with my life?’ She thought. ‘Surely she learned her lesson, being in so much trouble for what she did.’
pass again and Mary felt quite happy as she once again explored the
world wide web…until one day, on another one of her favorite sites,
she saw a rather familiar plea for help and donations. Mary shrugged it
off since there are many people that do so but as time passed, posts
started popping up about it until Mary saw that these posts were almost
100% like the posts during her situation once the girl she helped was
caught. So Mary sent a message to the people complaining and discovered
it was, in fact, the same girl! She did it again! Now more people have been
tricked out of time, money, and affection and are hurt.
Mary couldn’t take it anymore. PERHAPS IF MARY HAD SPOKEN OUT SOONER, OTHERS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TRICKED! So
she gathered up all the information she could and created a Callout
blog dedicated to preventing the girl from repeating her offense again.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~End story time.
Alright. Now, before her defenders start up about giving her a second chance, let me once more direct them to the Flight Rising fiasco. THAT was her second chance and she blew it. The fact that there was already a group posting and complaining about her BEFORE any of it was screen-capped and submitted to this blog speaks VOLUMES. Luckily, people realized what she was on about before it got to far.
The difference between Mary and I in our reactions is: I didn’t let the situation pass the first time. Even if there is a chance she won’t do it a third time, I am not willing to chance hundreds of others well-being mentally and otherwise for her sake.
Do I believe she can change? YES. I wholeheartedly believe she can change one day but I don’t see it any time soon. Especially as long as there are people constantly removing the blame of her actions from her along with the responsibilities involved. She will never grow from her mistakes if all she gets is a slap on the wrist and a finger wag.
