i kind of agree adam

anonymous asked:

I am sorry you got that hate ask. I have been following you for quite some time now and I have never seen you post anything remotely islamophobic. These ants are trippin so f***ing hard. I grew up muslim however I choose a different path bc personal reasons. But I know islamophobia when I see it. How the hell did they think u were anti islam in your response when u were nowhere near that?? All u did was defending Adam Driver. Honestly. F*** those ants. Adam Driver is wonderful man.

Thank you for your kind words, Nonnie! I agree, Adam’s so talented and understated and he’s mesmerising to watch perform. Sure, he’s not a perfect human being either but he’s done his best to avoid unnecessary bullshit, and these antis are looking for bones in stones.

I am not religious in any way, shape or form. I grew up Catholic but I find religious insitutions a bit unsavory (which, whatever, that’s my fuckin problem). And honestly I’ve had friends for decades (since like…Junior High/Middle School) and I’ve never actually asked them if they practiced religion or believed in anything because I don’t care. My criteria for friendship is 1) you are not an asshole, and if you’re going to act like one, at least do it ironically or make me laugh). 2) Don’t judge me for my actions but do honestly tell me if you feel it will hinder my progress or success as a human being 3) that you like eating as much as I do because I have the appetite of a ravenous badger girl.

Anyway, in terms of haters, I think  it all stems down to projection– I’ve asked my husband this (therapist who specializes in behavioral psych, thank the Force) and he says that most people who lash out against key words like “islamophobia” or any kind of religious or sex/gender-discriminatory derogatives (even if there are none set) are usually not looking for discussion– they’re looking for a way to validate their own personal thoughts and feelings through unhealthy ways–positive reinforcement through self-sustained superiority.

Blah, blah, blah, in short– they’re not reading anything I write. They view me as someone who understands or sees something they don’t, or something they’re afraid of, or maybe English comprehension is lost on them, I don’t fucking know, but it makes them scared. I’m taking away their medium with which to reinforce their self-sustained superiority, and it can cause violent lashouts (mostly in the form of one-sentence death threats that hold no real weight or value in their source).

I’m a grown adult (…oh god, I’m a grown adult O_O), and sometimes I revert back into being an 18-year-old cunty bitch who gets upset over people online, but then I remember that I don’t know these people, and they don’t know me. Whatever they feel like doing, is mostly for themselves and not for me, tbh. Being able to spit words at me because they’re allowed to on social media is the only way they can remotely get into my character (or well, the character they believe me to be). So I don’t get too upset over things like this, and if I do, it’s like…for an hour (because I have some range of emotion other than sarcastic and bored). Everyone of my followers and mutuals who have faced these death threats and assholes over Tumblr should know that 1) they don’t know you 2) they don’t actually give a fuck about you, they give a fuck about their ego 3) Eventually they’re going to flock something else to hate on once they realize that their collective bullshit doesn’t do much. It’s unfortunate, but that’s how human minds work, especially in very tight circles with the same ideologies and practicies. Sometimes I get caught up in it, but eventually I pull myself back to Earth and go, “hey, you got some shit to do elsewhere that’s actually kind of important. These haters don’t pay for your BMW or your student loans. So….stop caring.”

Buuut thank you and everyone who’s messaged me. Even though Tumblr could be so stupid, I think the ones I choose to remain friends with keep me happy, refreshed and excited in an otherwise mundane life of full-time work, marriage and maintaining finances (ew). So thanks guys. And to the haters: I’m not sorry your ego has been tarnished, but I am sorry that you choose to express it so monstrously. K, cool.
