The loss of the community is going to be sad, but I don’t think that most of us are social media butterflies. If we cared about people reading and seeing our shit we would have moved the fuck out a long time ago.
I’m going to be the most depressed about losing a place where I share my deepest thoughts and feelings. Even if it doesn’t go under, most people will lose that unless they pay.
Jesus fuck, can you think about some of the stuff we post about here that has happened to us? Rape, domestic violence, sexual abuse, relationship problems, eating disorders… etc etc. Where the fuck else would we post this shit? At this point, I’m as open and honest as a human being can possibly come. I over share way too much, and I’ve lost any sense of human dignity a long time ago, but even I would never post about an eating disorder or rape on any other social media sites. let’s have a thought experiment here.
THOUGHT EXPERIMENT: Say you are walking down a dark alley and some thug jumps out from behind a trashcan and knocks the wind out of you. He throws you to the ground, takes out a spoon, and proceeds to remove your eyeball from its socket. Once removed, the thug rapes your eye socket. WHERE WOULD YOU TALK ABOUT THIS SHIT AT?
You’ll probably post on Facebook that you’re in the hospital and okay, but you aren’t going to go into detail about your eye socket ordeal. The place where you’d vent and get out your feelings and recount what happened to you would be on XANGERZ. Is there any social media equivalent for that?
