You are just posting links so you can get attention and you are giving the tumblr free advertising. Do not use the politics forum to spread around something you found on tumblr, or youtube, or facebook. If you are so desperate to show your 3rd grade friends how "horrible" something on the internet is then show them on your own computer and not using our forum. This is not political. Get out.
Coward. You bash me on the internet and then block me. bravo. Read my other responses in other comments. It IS a political thing. Let me tell you: Politics is not only fat men in suits or gun laws. Under politics you can put many things. Including social issues. This is a social issue. No need to bash me andd throw a raging fit for no reason. I stole 3 seconds of your life. You wasted 5 minutes telling me about it.
The irony is that the conservatives are right in that the world would be better off if everyone took personal responsibility for their actions. They're just not right for the reasons they think they are.
I, for one, agree with you... if you can change it -- and more importantly than that have the intent of actually /trying/ to change it -- then go ahead, and make a change. However, angsting about bad things in life without actually doing anything is a waste of a happy life.
I should've said bad things, not all things. It wasn't a very in-depth comment I admit, but I was generally referring to the idea that people like OP let these things affect them even after they've done what they can about it. If that makes sense?
I never said anything about ignoring it. Letting it create fear and sadness is what I do not understand. Not the lady in the article, but the OP. Identifying and tackling a problem is one thing, emotional investment without seeming to have any intention of doing anything about it is another. It seems like a lot of effort for little reward.
I'm not even talking about sexism, it was just a little spin-off note about how people let things affect them beyond reason, again, not the lady in the article, there is a time to be sympathetic and one where it serves nobody.
That's the beauty of it though. When you don't care as much about everybody else, you're the only one who matters anyway. There's a limit of course but being emotionally hung up on problems that you have no way to do anything about is pointless, even detrimental to you.
I believe that even if my "overempathy" shit helps at least one person, it's worth it. Ignorance is wonderful` for the person who has it, but...Well, I wasnt fully happy with it. Neither am now. But at least nowi can help someone.
Ha, knew someone will say that. Where did I stated that it's th eonly way I try to help? this thread will not. It's just for conversations. But you know - even such threads make people think. MAybe someone will think about it... Anything. Such posts made me become an activist. I am volounteering in an after molestation help center. Posting itself... 1% itll do anything. The rest is action. Peace
