    My Very Last Blog Post - Goodbye

    As of now, I think the time has come to finally abandon my Fimfiction page. I don't particularly want any involvement in the MLP community any longer and I hold no interest in continuing to be an active member. While my page remains open to everyone, I've logged out permanently and don't think I'll return to it or use it again. No more blogs, no more stories, no related content - it's over.

    I'm never going to be the person that... (Facts of life)

    I'm never going to be the person who goes out drinking with friends in the pub at the end of the week,
    I'm never going to be the person to enter a stable relationship,
    I'm never going to be the person to cry for those who won't cry for me,
    I'm never going to be the person who gives up over a little tough break,

    Either stay or leave. Don't play me about.

    If you're staying, stay.

    If you're playing around with me, kindly fuck off. I'm not in the mood.

    Either follow or don't follow. It really is that simple. Make up your mind already.

    Thank you. :ajsleepy:

    Need a distraction from your low mood? Here's an old photo of my guinea pig :3

    Because I'm sad and because my guinea pig is an adorable fwubby enchanted squeaking potato, here's Oscar laying down and snuggling into his brother, Guinness's guinea bum. Don't ask why he did that, just look at how cute he's being. Requires all the ear rubs. Should have called him Sir Purrsalot. 🐹

    ''Applejack, are you gay?'' French Translation - if you're interested.

    Back when I introduced this story a few years ago, I was approached by a French Translator called Rainbowsoarin007 and they requested me to allow them to turn my story into a French translation for viewers in that part of the world and those who speak it.

I would rather be hated for saying this than for keeping my mouth shut - if you don't agree, I'd like you to leave · 3:34pm Oct 10th, 2020

It honestly makes me so sad on the inside and outside after becoming an adult and seeing the world in a no-bullshit kind of way. The way people act towards everything, the apathy, the uncaring way they do things without regard for anybody else, the opportunist stance they have when times get tough, how guys treat women and how much women put themselves down when they shouldn't because of it, etc.

I don't particularly enjoy living in this time period, and in my mind, all the good and best times have passed since school ended. When people actually cared about each other, we didn't mock each other just ''because it was funny and I'm bored'', and we had no technology. I remember sitting with a Game Boy Colour and playing Harry Potter, and sitting with a PSP. And when digital images didn't exist; it was all on film! Now we've got more digital products and no pride in anything. So, an idea to make people interact more backfired and made them do the exact opposite. It should have been obvious a new media product that necessitates sitting inside to access it would make things worse. Enter the introvert.

I can't even count how often it makes me sad to be in public and see everyone with a phone in their hand. Not only that, but I look at the girls out in public and I see how much they shame themselves for things they can't control. Have some self-love. I've always been told I should have more self-respect and should love myself more than I do, but to me, they should do that, too. After spending time with them, some I grew up with or shared a class with, I can tell you without a doubt you're worth it. You don't need makeup to be pretty in public or to look nice for the guys, because you feel ugly, whatever your mindset is. Trust me, y'all are worth it the way you are. Natural beauty speaks volumes more than any cosmetic product can ever do for you.

It all feels like a massive nightmare that can't be woken up from, in all truth. I remember once hearing from somebody that he envied those with depression because they see the world for the shithole that it is and not for what others want you to believe. They don't buy into the horseshit that gets shoved in our faces as kids. Being a realist is telling it how it is. Lie and all is happy. Tell the truth, they'll threaten your life. I would honestly rather be hated for the person I am, loathed for the things I stand for and my personality, than be loved for the exact thing I oppose.

Would you be surprised if I told you that I got hated on because a lot of people thought or assumed I was gay? Like, what concern is that of yours, anyway? Why would it matter? It's like there's a betting pool on meaningless things like that now. A person's orientation has nothing to do with anybody else but the person themselves. You think it's not okay to be gay, trans or anything else in those margins? Well, I'd always rather be one of those than be an oppressive, closed-minded fuckwit with centuries-old views. People like that are cancerous. If you think homosexuality is wrong, then I don't want to know you. It's none of your damn business, so shut it.

I have few things to say nowadays, but that will always stand. The majority of things I loved were taken away when I grew up, but the things I do care for and always will stand for is telling it how it is and respecting the ladies like they should be. If you don't respect them, then turn in your man license. Treat a girl like that, then I guarantee what happens to you will be far, far worse than anything you do to her personally. You'll be very lonely.

I don't have much else to say. I think I kinda killed like three birds with a giant stone here, so let that say enough.

Hate you? No. No, I don't think I shall. Agree with you? Yes, in part.

Shall I do something about the state of the world? Yes, the same way I have for years; pulling some strings, and cutting others.

Quite a few hate me because they thought I was something I never claimed to be in the first place. That and I speak my mind, take no bull from anyone. I wasn't joking when I said a few people hated me because they thought I was gay. So I acted gay to piss them off. Bastards.

Look, I'm a punk. I don't agree with anything going on in the world right now in the slightest. Anarchy will only ensue, and it partially already has. My hope is to be a part of that movement with my music one day. Fight oppression.

As you say, you've got your own way. Do what you can with what resources / connections you have. Make something better out of the shit storm. Peace. 🖤

Sometimes I want to come out as trans just to spite people who can’t accept anybody.

I feel like what you’re saying has some truth, and I’d never hate you for it.

We live in a day and age where people feel that judging others for being 'different' is easier than working on their own shortcomings.
It's bullshit, but some people just suck at being people.

Welp, you're on the right planet to piss people off, because everybody is a judgemental asswipe. They can all fuck off, frankly.

Homophobes are the biggest thing on this planet that pisses me off royally aside from those forceful, pushy religious nuts. You do you, Dashite. Do what you want because it's your life; not theirs. If anybody can tell you what to do, it's you. Nobody else has any say. If they think they do, as I said above, they can fuck off.

I'd go as far to disqualify those people from being labelled as people. We never learn. Acceptance is one thing the human race can't bring themselves to compute and we end up killing each other over ideology. If you don't act like everyone else does, you're instantly recognised as the freak. If you're the freak, you get picked on. If you get picked on, you're likely also a millennial. If you're a millennial, you likely hate your life and existence because of it.

Everyone is a critic.

The ''that's life'' saying very easily hits a nerve with me. Some of us exist to rebel against that, and I'm one of them. I hate the lot of them.

Oh, I like your style. And I'll do what I can with what I've got... always have.

Peace... yes, that's the end goal.

I've never hated anyone for having different views on things because it leads to nowhere. Differences of opinion will always be a part of our lives, but as long as people are respectful to each other, it shouldn't be a problem.

All that said, there are two important caveats here:

One - not lumping people together. That's why I emphasized the word 'respectful' above - because there is a difference between a guy shouting:

"All faggots should die :twilightangry2:!"

And actively trying to make the lives of gay people around him a living hell, and another saying:

"My religion tells me gay sex is a sin, and that won't change, but that's between you and God. It's not gonna change my attitude towards you in any way :twilightsmile:."

If you start treating both the above as bloodthirsty homophobes, then you're becoming the 'judgemental asswipe' yourself :unsuresweetie:.

Two - using ANY form of violence to fight for 'justice' - doesn't matter whether it's physical, social, psychological, or internet. Whether you use Twitter, Facebook, a gun, a stick, or a molotov - you're playing a vigilante, and that's the last thing the world needs right now.

Those are two things I personally can't stand. If you believe any of them, then let me know and we better unfollow each other before some drama erupts in the future...

I act the way I do towards some of them because they're the type that try and force that idea into your head from a young age, which is what I brought up about my primary school. THAT is why I hate them so much. I'm not saying they are ALL like that at all, just those few. I tolerate them and even grew to like most of them, even though our views are incredibly different. As a person, the whole concept of religious beliefs on sexuality, just because this holy ghost says it's 'a sin', doesn't make sense to me. I don't like it.

No, I don't judge people like that straight away. I usually make my judgements on people after getting to know them. I don't treat anybody as an enemy, not unless they do that to me first. Betray my trust, press your beliefs on me when it's clear it makes me uncomfortable, you have that type of suffocating obnoxious personality that dictates you're superior, then I don't want to have any involvement. If...that's the right way to put it? I'm not really good with words and explaining myself in this context, honestly.

I hate seeing people fight. At the same time, I hate everyone telling each other to live their life in the way they want them to live it. It sickens me, actually. That's the exact attitude I've dealt with all my life, why my spite towards it is so heavy. I don't and won't tolerate it. The homophobia, the judgemental issues, the oppression, I wish it'd stop already.

I don't expect this to make much sense from an anarchist like me. Best analogy? The Joker in Full Metal Jacket has ''Born to Kill'' written on his helmet that also has a peace symbol badge pinned on it. He was even asked what it meant by a sergeant and he responded with ''Sir, I don't know, Sir!''. A speculation is that it means that in order to get peace, if there is no alternative, is to kill for it to be possible. Some violence and lives sacrificed for peace. But that's in a war context. It's similar to the world's current situation, but not quite the exact. Any of this make some sense to you at all?

As a person, the whole concept of religious beliefs on sexuality, just because this holy ghost says it's 'a sin', doesn't make sense to me. I don't like it.

A fun fact here - at least in the case of Christianity, it's not 'holy ghost' but one of many interpretations of a Bible - the only one that the Church recognizes that is. Many other independent ones question the validity of the 'gay sex = sin' claim, but the Church doesn't recognize them.

It's even 'funnier' when it comes to the tale of Onan. For every thinking person, it should be clear as day it's not about 'shedding seed in vain' (aka. masturbation and/or 'pulling out'). But about Onan using his brother's wife as a sexual object and trying to claim his brother's inheritance at the same time.

That's why I always tell my fellow believers to use their fucking brains to judge something, not just blindly follow what the Church or a priest tells them. Otherwise, they'll end up burning Harry Potter books and not buying MLP Toys because 'the priest said they're evil :pinkiegasp:!' (sadly, a true story).

As for the rest...

Any of this make some sense to you at all?

I think it does, but it's hard for me to judge anything without concrete examples. However, let me tell you why I find people thinking that using any sort of violence is 'OK as long as it's for just cause' as dangerous. There are two major reasons:

  1. If someone is already radicalized to a point, by violating him, you won't change his mind, but you'll give him arguments to radicalize further and play the victim - that may seem illogical, and it is an irony, but one of the (many) reasons why Nazis were able to get to power in pre-WWII Germany was because they were attacked by both German Commies AND 'normal' Germans. That's why the best present for a real Nazi is - ironically - a punch to the face.
  2. Because (especially in today's weird word with social cancer/media), you risk to falsely attack someone that is not doing anything wrong and radicalize him, creating the very problem you claim to fight against - maybe you're not doing that, but I've seen people openly claiming that if you're a believer, then you MUST BE a homophobe. And if they find you so much as quoting the Bible about how 'gay sex = sin' - you should be fired. Imagine that your average Joe is a guy who believes in that but is nevertheless respectful towards everyone. How do you think he'll react when he learns that someone wants him fired for his belives? I know I would feel violated by LGBT people if that happened. That's the best way to radicalize someone.

In practice, it all really depends on the details of what one side did, and how the other reacted. And that doesn't mean people should not act at all. They can (and should) use the LAW, but they should not go vigilante-style because that only leads to an escalation in the long run, and that's not good for anyone :unsuresweetie:.

...That was a joke, dearest.

I'm not even going to bother to disagree. Thank da Cookie Queen somebody else said it. Yes. I wish they'd do this, too. That's my problem with the majority of them, too! Don't believe something that you're told to believe 'just because it says so'.

  1. If someone is already radicalized to a point, by violating him, you won't change his mind, but you'll give him arguments to radicalize further and play the victim - that may seem illogical, and it is an irony, but one of the (many) reasons why Nazis were able to get to power in pre-WWII Germany was because they were attacked by both German Commies AND 'normal' Germans. That's why the best present for a real Nazi is - ironically - a punch to the face.

Don't bring Nazis or WW2 into this. I see what you're trying to do, but please stop right there.

'Creating the very problem I claim to fight against'? In part, I suppose that is true. I don't openly go to a select group and call them out to their faces, and the only reason I might do that is if provoked in the correct way. And you know, some points in my life, I have been triggered by it when it was said to my face. The difference is I don't discriminate; I stand up for people being discriminated or treated / judged horribly for something not within their control.

Honestly, I don't really want to continue this conversation and say anything incriminating. I want it noted I do tolerate whomever believes in what they like, as long as they don't go picking a fight over it, forcing conversion, singling others out and / or openly condemning them for whatever reason. That seems to be the norm these days, and I'm frankly sick of it. And for the record, no, just because somebody belongs to a Christian church, I don't consider them a homophobe automatically, just like that. I don't do that to people, at all. Part of the reason why I don't is because I know all too well what it's like to be automatically judged and torn to shreds just because 'I looked the part'. If you don't know me personally, best thing to do is keep quiet about it until you actually do know me enough to make that call.

I'd rather this ended right here.
