In case you're wondering what I hate...

This and this sum it up quite nicely.

To anyone who thinks that spouting nastiness about other people is "fun" or "just a joke," GROW THE FUCK UP. If you think that's funny, then obviously you haven't had any true hardships in your life and are likely a spoiled brat acting like you're still 15, because this is the sort of shit teenagers (apologies to the unusually mature teenagers on my friends list) do. Repeat after me: HURTING OTHER PEOPLE IS WRONG. MAKING FUN OF OTHER PEOPLE IS WRONG. REVEALING PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION IS WRONG. If you don't like someone, DON'T READ THEIR DAMNED JOURNAL. You're allowed to have an opinion of someone else, positive or negative, but that does NOT give you the right to treat anyone this way. PERIOD.

I give up.

A number of people I respect, care about and like a great deal find things like the hate thread and fandom wank amusing. I don't like such things at all. I've been trying to reconcile these two sides and find that I can't - to me, causing other people deliberate pain and then saying it's those people's fault if they're hurt because they're too fragile... I just can't agree with that. However, since I can't figure this out, I'm not going to try anymore. I don't need the headache any longer and I have too much of my own crap to worry about. Therefore, I guess this will have to be one of those things where we agree to disagree and go on with our sad little lives.

In other exciting news, I have spent the weekend playing the first Monkey Island, Syberia II and reading Tamora Pierce. This whole losing an hour thing has been kicking my arse around the apartment all day, so I think I'm going to collect my laundry and then read in bed until I pass out (which should be in about 10 minutes if that much).

Oh, have I mentioned that I joined the staff of The Witching Hour? Yeah, baby!

G'night, world.
