This article is really great. I am sick to death of the attitude I see so much, that if you can't just deal with things, get over things, find humor in things, not be offended by things, take the high ground, etc. etc. etc., there is something wrong with you. I am surrounded by people in RL who have pretty rigid expectations for me of how I should react to any given issue and how I should live. Everyone reacts to everything in different ways, and what one person thinks is no big deal might be a VERY big deal to someone else, and no one has the right to take that away from them. Most especially if that someone else experiences it in some more direct way, but likewise, I'm also sick of people who have been through similar experiences and come out better for it acting like everyone should be able to.

I'm super irritated with this right now because I've seen it so much in the past few days especially, for various reasons. The one time I look at ONTD of my own volition, I see an article about how RuPaul thinks it's totally okay to use the word 'tranny' howeveryouplease, even as an insult, with millions of comments about how oversensitive everyone is anymore and how everyone should just develop a thick skin. I'm sorry (not really though), but fuck that. This world is shit for the most part, but there are so many things that would be even worse if people hadn't gotten hurt, gotten offended, and gotten angry. Ignorant is uneducated, and that can be fixed.

Sometimes I just get really frustrated with how passive and docile we're all expected to be. It's great for some people if they can laugh about things and remain unaffected, I envy that so much, but not everyone can feel that way, and many don't have the choice.

Okay, because this is an ongoing source of... I don't know, baffling frustration for me, I'm just going to throw it out there in a bit of a semi-rant, and get it out of me.

If anyone listens to Tokio Hotel songs and truly thinks that they are about weather or space, they are only hearing, they are not listening.

Wow, I got long-winded! We are all shocked, I'm sure. ;) )

I've been meaning to post about this for awhile, keep forgetting, and yet it seems to keep coming up, so I kind of just want to get what I'm thinking out of my head. And it seems to only come up on Twitter (that I see, anyway), and it's SO frustrating trying to say what I'm thinking within 140 characters, lol >.<

Which, btw, is why I think that Twitter is further deteriorating our interpersonal communication skills, because I am 150% sure that I am not the only person with this problem, but that's a whole other can of worms!

So, this whole deal about originality, and this person ripping off that person, etc. etc. etc. As seen in discussions about Bill vs. Adam, and now Kerli vs. Lady Gaga. I hesitate to call this a 'rant', per se... more just an extended musing?

Are you still living there
Walking the streets with your hollow stare
You say there's loneliness everywhere
So we have nothing to lose
The music plays all day long
And sorrow looks beautiful
And lovers seem mystical
Tomorrow a new point of view
These bright lights will bend to make blue
Now this can all look new to you
