Lo, the triggers of so many others I've voluntarily bitten my tongue to entertain.
..on topics even actually important to me..
Let me count the many times, even here where I would have somewhat free reign to do so if I didn't give the slightest shit about others. We've always had plenty such people in our ranks, no?
Self-regret feelings, for my backing away from topics, JUST for the sake of some, because their mere mention turns them into irate mental cases, but I am and never have been, thanked nor recognized by them for my voluntary self-censorship.
Reminds me exactly why I find their ilk so annoying.
Reminds me what's wrong with broader social media generally. It's the same cancer.
At some point, nobody is going to give a fucking damn about retreating from what needs to be said for the sake of baby possibly having tantrums and throwing a rattle across the room.
It's coming. Many will lose their freaking minds, corrupt too-big corporations will retract their funding all in unison, and there will still be nobody willing to self-censor anymore.
And as the two-toed sloth once said,
DEAL WITH IT.
