Spuffure I fully agree with you on the preconceived notions about sexualities and the lazy stereotypes that come with that. I also agree that the fetishizing of lesbians is gross and damaging.

I feel your use of the term “normal” is very problematic. I’m a teacher and work predominantly with women of colour many of whom are Muslims and I’m offended by your previous message. I’m also a staunch atheist which I’m stating merely for context.

Implying that any faith needs to change to fit your “normal” is really not ok. You are obviously not a Muslim or a Jewish person so what gives you the right to tell others how to worship? Saying “Islam can be more progressive” is tacitly saying “I personally want a faith I am not part of to change to make me feel better”. That’s no different than a religious extremist saying “death to the infidels”.

You make your opposition to Islam clear by not being a follower of the faith. And stop with the histrionics, you are absolutely welcome to condemn the actions of individuals and you can be critical of how faiths do things but the way you are phrasing things IS Islamaphobic. I wonder how many Muslims you’ve spoken to about their perception of their life within their religion?

You feel all Islam should change (because you, a non-Muslim, say so). They should change because they aren’t “normal”. How many of my students need to change? How many are not “normal”? How do you decide when something crosses the line? Is it “normal” to pretend you are eating the body of Christ or is it “normal” to choose to cover your head as a sign of respect? The moderate Muslims of the world far outweigh those who hold extremist views.

You’re not the global arbitrator of what is “normal”; no one is. Just live your life, you’re the master of your own destiny. Religious freedom is important and I’ll defend the rights of others to worship despite choosing not to worship personally.

EDIT: It’s frustrating you edited your post to say “equal” not “normal” but I appreciate you saw the problematic nature with that language and choose to change it.

Ah, sorry. I felt like a horrible person reading that. I meant the more conservative radical ones in the Middle East. I have a warped view on Abrahamic religions and only really know Christianity. I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you.

I have never talked to a Muslim. I have talked to people who have talked to Muslims, and normal Muslims are nice.

And yeah, I got most of that ‘backward’ perception from Reddit. Fuck Reddit.

I grew up in a conservative suburb with values more in line with the 1950s with no Muslims or Jews, only Christians. Mostly of British Descent.

I’ve also used to like hating white Christians, Britain and Western Europe. Is that not okay?

I feel like this guilt from your post just makes me hate Protestants even more. Sorry if this is worded wrong.

I still have a huge resentment for British people, and dislike conservative Baby Boomers of white, British/Scottish descent.

After you’ve replied to that, I’ve also wanted to tell you I have a fetish, which makes me feel shame and feel sexist.

Look Spuffure, I’m not here to be your moral compass. I am however concerned that you harbour such deep hatred for things you have little to no experience of and I think you’d be best served educating yourself rather than going off about things that you plainly don’t understand. Speaking from a place of ignorance is the fastest way to make yourself look like an asshole.

I’ve only been on this forum a few months but I’ve lost count of the times you’ve had outbursts. You have a tendency to be hyperbolic and extrapolate your outrage from hear-say and conjecture. You frequently reference your mental health but I don’t know what you’re doing about that. Your anger at everything signals to me that you are simply angry and, since don’t know how to direct that anger, you lash out at everything under the sun. Take it from someone who has a history of mental health; get some help. This isn’t healthy and life is far to short to be consumed by this stuff.

I’m just sorry for my prejudice of Jews and Muslims and the fact you were offended made me feel like a bad person and made me hate myself and Christians.

I don’t have anything against Muslims.

I agree it is prejudice because I don’t really understand Jews and Muslims. And I am sorry.

I got that idea from Reddit.

Spuffure, I called out your problematic behaviour because you have the capacity to be better. The fact that you can so easily switch the focus of your ire again speaks to the fact that you yourself are inherently angry and you are looking for something, anything, to pin that anger on I don’t think you’re a bad person but you do need to find a way to healthily process what you’re going through. I’ve said all that I plan to say on the matter and I sincerely hope you’ll take my advice and look into getting some proper support for yourself.

Now for a softer rant:

I hate it when I google search a saying or word and it comes up with a song or movie instead of the saying/word.

So true… Or when you try to look up a famous book, and only the movie comes up.

Spuffure… as others have said in here over some time now, reach out and get some help. If talking to friends or family is not possible… then try a counsellor, therapist, or other medical professional.

Meanwhile, read Malthus’ (and others in here) sound advice above again.
 

Positive waves coming your way Spuffure. Though having a chat with someone… a professional in a position to be of help to you, will help. Don’t put it off, don’t make an excuse - or say to yourself you’ll do it tomorrow, or next week, or whenever (as so many of us do) - do it today; now. After all, it is only a talk - it is what you are doing on here now - but it will be with someone who may very likely be able help you.

^This.

We can’t help you Spuffure. As much as we would like to, there’s only so much we can do. You need a therapist. There’s nothing to be scared about. They deal with all kinds of people, and aren’t going to judge you, and they will be able to help you out.

FUCK CORPORATIONS THEY’RE THE WORST

Casual b*tch:

I hate how words like “Karen”, “Simp” and “Boomer” are misused constantly. Any old person, especially a ‘Builder’ (AKA a member of the ‘Silent Generation’) is NOT a Boomer, any middle aged woman is NOT a Karen just because of her appearance, and a man who is casually nice to women is NOT a Simp.

Also it’s offensive to women and girls named Karen, who suffer bullying due to their names.

Also Boomers did NOT ruin the world and are NOT the worst generation. They’re certainly a lot better than, say, their parents, or conservatives in the 19th century.

A large part of the internet has no chill.

But fair enough. Stereotypes can turn into an excuse to be mean.

Reddit neet zoomers ruined the word Karen, have made boomer no longer a fun word, and they invented Simp so it was never good.

I agree that zoomers ruined the word Karen (and I know this firsthand as a zoomer myself). One of my friends is actually named Karen, and the stereotypical description of Karens doesn’t apply to her at all, so as you can imagine, she hates the fact that own her name which has existed for decades, probably centuries, has recently become associated with entitled and racist T***p supporters, which she very much is not.

What is a zoomer?

The successors to millennials. ‘Zoomer’ is the nickname for Generation z, and birth dates can range from the late 90s to early 2010s, I think.

“Remember, the Force will be with you. Always.”

Borders are fuzzy. I’ve seen people say the zoomer generation starts as early as 1994 and as late as 2006. Almost an entire generation can fit in the grey zone.

So is Zoomer the new catch all ok boomer but for us 90s kids?

Not really…it’s just modelled after “boomer”, but without the meme connotations (which came after “zoomer” was coined).
