I’m sick and tired of people giving me a hard time just because I run a selective rp blog. I don’t do it to be mean or elitist, and I am always gentle and polite about turning someone down. Yet it seems that no matter how nice I am about it, people will still find it appropriate to send me hatemail, guilt-trip me, and verbally bash me in public for being selective with who I rp with. We are not obligated to roleplay with everyone. If someone is uncomfortable rping with you, then you need to accept that without throwing a tantrum like an entitled little shit.
People who have gone semi private, private, semi-selective or selective often do so because they are protecting themselves and don’t want to get hurt. There are more people who do that than there are people who do it because they’re assholes. And the sooner people realize it, the better off the rp community will become.
No longer wanting to RP with someone is of course always fine. I just wish some muns would tell you when they don’t want to RP with you anymore instead of suddenly ignoring you so you’ll take the hint.
