“Stop being a dick!!“ you shriek to tumblr user Pokemon-Stim-boards through the screen. You’re upset. You can feel the anger bubbling in your chest, you feel yourself losing control. “I can’t believe he said that” you think to yourself. “I can’t believe he called cishets wild. How could he.”
You feel your anger turn in to confusion. “What have straight people even done to lgbt people?? Why would anyone ever have any anger towards any cis gender or heterosexual person? We have done nothing!” You just sit there pondering what to do. “How dare a random person on the internet indirectly offend me like that!” You say out loud your anger returning.
What should you do to make this all feel better? What could possibly rectify this situation? “I know!” You proclaim.
You go to pokemon-stim-boards’ blog. You click the message icon. You start typing your message. You edit yourself several times. Eventually you finish it. You read the screen a couple times. “I’m unfollowing. I really liked your blog until you turned out to be an asshole.” It reads. Perfect.
But wait. You hesitate. You feel a little flare of nervousness come into your chest. “What if he confronts me? What if he is mean to me?” Suddenly you remember there’s a solution. You see that small little square. You click it breathing a sigh of relief. Your icon changes, your URL disappears, suddenly you are saved. No one could possibly know it is you. No one will no that it’s you unfollowing this blog.
A couple minutes pass. You check his blog every minute desperate for a reply. You need to know what it says.
You check his blog for the 10th time. He finally replied!! What did he say?
You read the response.
You read it again.
“Lmao okay you didn’t really have to tell me that lol” it reads.
Your heart drops.
He doesn’t care.
He’s not hurt.
This is not at all what you wanted.
You take a few deep breaths. You start typing a response. You’re less careful, less precise with this one.
“I’ll call somebody out on what they are, I don’t really care what you think. Stop being a dick to people for no reason. It’s not cool or ~~trendy~~.”
There. That’s perfect.
You press send.
Pokemon-stim-boards replies. You take a few more deep breaths preparing to read the answer.
"Aw, the anon is angry”
He still doesn’t care.
“I will make him care.”
You open the message box.
“You know what just KILL YOUSELF you’re being a DICK for no reason”
You check his blog.
He’s posting. He’s active. But he’s not answering your ask.
Did it not send? Does he still not care? “Why isn’t he answering” you cry.
You decide to unfollow him. “That’ll show him” you think. “Especially since I told him I was going to unfollow him a long time ago.”
You go to his blog.
You see that button.
“Unfollow” it says
You take a deep breath.
Your hand trembles. “Goodbye forever” and you click unfollow and leave his blog forever.
