Why am I still surprised?

Warning: There is a link to NSFW content in this post.

About two months ago I wrote a pair of posts/articles/whatever you want to call them. They were deemed highly controversial for what I talked about. I don’t regret what I called attention to, namely the way donors and non-vamps are sometimes treated in the online and offline vampire community. The first post came across pretty darned bitchy, so I wrote a calmer version a day or two later.

Either way, I got a barrage of comments on here and on facebook groups where it was linked. Some sided with me (Yay!), but a large number, well… To be honest, a good number were not nice, polite, etc. A large percentage of those comments seem to be from people who didn’t actually read the whole blog post, just the title of the first one, and thought “HOMG! That bitch is attacking that guy! Who dafuq does she think she is?” I’ve gotten threats against my life, just because I didn’t like what a group of people (not just one singular person) said about people like me. Tough shit. I’m an adult, I live in the United States, where we have the right to free speech. Despite claims to the contrary, I didn’t edit anyone’s comments. I approved every comment on those two posts, whether they were “Pro-Pixie” or not. The only time I disapproved or edited comments in the entire time this blog has been up is if it was a spam comment promoting some stupid website, or, like I saw yesterday when I checked my email, someone posted the same comment on 4 different posts on my blog.

Yup. That’s the post. Did I look at the porn linked? No. A friend of mine did. Let’s just say, ew. Want to watch it yourself? Here you go. http://www.pornhub.com/view_video.php?viewkey=687535318 So, yeah.

I’m pissed. Why? I could just ignore this, and put it in the stupid threat that no one will follow through on, just like I have on the death threats. There’s just one big, and I mean big, difference.

No one has tried to kill me before. But, on the other hand, I have been raped before.

Yes, I’m a rape survivor. I had a person force themself on me against my will, and no matter how much I may dislike or even hate my worst enemy, I would never, and I mean NEVER, wish that upon anyone.

So. What am I going to do about it? Nothing. Confused? Here’s what I propose. Donor’s do their own form of a “sit-in”. Now, for those of you who are not quite sure what that is, I’ll spell it out for you. Back in the day, during the Hippy era and the civil rights protests in the late 50’s, early 60’s, people would gather and sit in protest against war or inequality. They’d just sit there, maybe sing a song, but that’s all they’d do. Sit.

Well, in this day and age, it’s somewhat impractical to do something like that. So I ask for donors to go on strike. Starting Wednesday, October 24th, until Halloween, a week later, don’t feed your vampire(s). Explain to your vampire why you’re on strike, that it’s a shame that donors that speak up against abuse are threatened abuse. That those who were not “blessed” to be born a vampire, but want to be involved to better your lives through friendship and being a possible food source, are treated like animals, like “cattle”. Now, if you’re lucky, like I am, and have vampires in your life who are cool, treat you like an equal, etc., kudos for you. But, still go on strike. After I publish this post, I’m calling or texting my vampires and letting them know that the buffet is closed.

Now, it’s been suggested to me by a close friend that the strike should be for longer than a week. But, I’m not going to risk people’s health over this. I figure that one week is long enough to make a point, but short enough that people won’t suffer serious health complications from lack of feeding. Stock up on substitutes, people. If other donors out there want to extend the strike, don’t go longer than a month. Myself, it would lead to issues. I donate because I have to. I’m the energetic opposite of a psychic vampire. While vamps need to eat energy, I need to drain it.

I’m adding this post to my list of “Publish all comments unedited, no matter what”. Even if they aren’t legible. Even if they, yet again, threaten me physically. I’ll also cross-link this post to a couple of Facebook groups and some forums I’m on. If you read this, whether you agree with it or not, pass it on. Spread the word.

GRAH!!! Personal Rantage

First off, the following rant is solely the opinion of me, personally. It is not the opinion of any association I’m a member/representative of.

Rant: Start –

I hate stupid people.

Seriously.

First off, I’m sure most of you know who Jonathon “The Impaler” Sharkey is. That idiotic twit who claims that he’s a direct descendant of Vlad Dracul. Really. And he’s apparently now a member of the Republican party, oath and all, and is running for the presidency in 2012. Yeah, like he’s actually going to make it.

Here’s why I can’t stand the guy. He’s 45 years old, and has publicly announced (in a news interview, no less) that he hasn’t dated a girl over the age of 19 in several years. And yet, in his “proclamations” of what he’s going to set into motion when he becomes president, he will impale and torture pedophiles. He just last week supposedly married his latest 19 year old girlfriend. With in a couple of weeks after he was told to desist in contact with his last teenage girlfriend. I feel pity for that poor girl. She’s a victim of his brain washing and I hope she wisens up quickly. She deserves better, and needs time to adjust to not being a kid anymore before shacking up with a guy nearly DOUBLE her age!

But, I digress. I have nothing against the poor girl, other than her choice in men.

My problem is with Sharkey. He was invited to be “interviewed” by the masses via #sangspace on DalNet a week or so ago. It was honestly the WORST waste of my time I’ve ever seen. Sharkey didn’t even show up himself, his wife showed up, and typed his “responses” after cleaning them up so there wouldn’t be massive flaming. When people asked serious questions, he ducked and dodged actually giving an answer, after stalling for about 5-10 mins before even starting to type to waste time. He basically said that everyone in the vampire community, save for him, his wife, and a few special few, are all fakes. Nice.

Supposedly he’s going to be on Larry King tonight after the Chelsey Handler segment, along with Don Henrie, the twit Vampyra, and Seregon O’Dassey.

Prominent vampyre elders from the four largest
havens in the U.S.” are appearing on Larry King tonight (after Chelsea Handler’s
segment) on CNN at 9 PM ET to discuss the “alarming phenomenon of real vampyres
‘coming out of the coffin’ in America”. “How will this affect you and your tax
dollars, are your kids safe, and should vampires be counted in the census? All
these questions and more as we take your phone calls tonight on Larry King
Live

Yeah. They are the 4 leading members of the community. Ha. Haha. Hahahahahahaha. *wipes a tear from her eye from laughing so hard* Oh, I needed a good April Fools day joke. Thank you, Larry.

No offense, but no one, really, in the community takes any of these four people seriously. I mean, yeah, Don used to be the poster child, thanks to Mad Mad House, but honestly? Not any more. Seregon is an idiot model/b actress who’s trying to improve her career by claiming to be a vamp, Vampyra just worries me, and well, you’ve heard my rant. What I want to know is when did these four become “trusted leaders” of the community. I mean, if you ask most people involved in the ovc, they’ll typically say “Go check the roster for the VVC (Voices of the Vampire Community) for community leaders”. I mean, they let my happy ass in the group. And I’m not a non-scandelous donor. I’m known for having views and opinions that aren’t considered “The Norm” for a donor. Oh well. But I still have an actual brain and know how to use it.

*sighs*

I’m just frustrated. First, I’ve been having tons of icky shit happen in my real life, and now this idiocy. Lovely. Just what I needed. I’m going to go curl up in my bf’s lap and just try to relax.

What ever happened do “Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys”?

This article just made me go *grr*

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/opinion/columnists/datelinedc/s_588092.html

Hell, the entire newspaper makes me want to go grr. From what I’ve seen over the past year of living in this town, that article is one and the same with the rest of the garbage that they try to feed people. But the way it was written? I mean, dear gods love gravy, that was low even for the Trib’s standards.

Here is where you actually reply to a post other than Weekend 1!!! Tell me if you like it, if you think it blows, and WHY you think that. Back yourself up, peoples! I don’t want random “Godz, that fcukin sucks monkey butts” with out a good reason as to WHY it sucks monkey butts (even though I think it does, too).
Comeon.. I know you’re out there. This spiffy site lets me see if y’all are reading me or not.
