I’m tired. I’m really fucking tired of passive ways of communication that people think are acceptable on this site. If you have a problem with someoneTELL THEM!!!
No, I’m not talking about subtly implying things something is upsetting you, triggering you, making you uncomfortable, or confusing you.
No, I’m not talking about using your muse as a means to say THIS ISN’T OK! (I mean having your muse say/think they don’t like something when it’s really YOU who doesn’t like it. Most people tend to participate in proper roleplay etiquette and always recognize that the muse’s opinions don’t reflect the mun’s)
No, I’m not talking about ignoring someone and expecting them to just miraculously read your mind and instantly know how they fucked up.
No, I’m not talking about sending people anon hate and telling people they should give up on the things they love and kill themselves because they triggered you
I’m talking about sending an ask WITHOUT ANON or an IM and saying “Hey _______ is making me uncomfortable. Can you stop doing that?” or “ *insert subject matter here* is triggering to me. Please tag it/Let’s not roleplay that.”
There are some people like me who have piss poor social skills or just can’t really pick up on subtle social cues for whatever reason.
There is no reason to ignore someone and have them wondering for the next however the hell long what they could’ve possibly done wrong to have a good friend of theirs suddenly want nothing to do with them.
There is no reason to exploit the anon system in order to try to get your point across without suffering the consequences. (Hey sweetie, you wouldn’t be using anon to say that shit if you didn’t know ahead of time that it was fucked up AND YOU KNOW IT!!!)
BEING SHY/AFRAID OF CONFRONTATION/MENTALLY ILL/PISSED OFF DOESN’T EXCUSE YOU FROM COMMUNICATING YOUR ISSUES IN A CLEAR AND CIVIL MANNER, AND BEING A DECENT HUMAN BEING!!!
I know I may sound like a royal angry bitch right now, but I honestly don’t care. I’m only asking that you respect your friends and rp partners enough to do these basic things.
