Random Outrage

Last night, I was on YouTube enjoying the wonderful music video "In the End" by Linkin Park (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIwWqYSbzGA). I do not normally read or post many comments, but my eyes happened to drift down the page.

One user posted that she sometimes felt as if the song was very true sometimes for her.

Someone posted that if she thought the world was so awful she could and kill herself.

The first user tried to explain that she was 13 and two of her friends had been raped, one of them had committed suicide, and the other was thinking about it.

The other person insulted her further.

Another user and I both told the offending commenter to fuck off and that similar things have happened in our lives.

Thankfully, s/he stayed quiet after that.

Situations like this are exactly the type of thing I am trying to prevent by writing this blog. This is why so many feel as if they have no support; heartless people judging others simply because they don't understand their troubles or find the issues creepy.

Please. When people are going through rough times, don't make them even harder.


  1. Your position in the defense of the innocent is most noble. It is indeed despicable of anyone to harm in any way those who are going through such trying times. Those who do should be ashamed, and again, thank you for defending the innocent.

  2. What that person did was truly cruel, and they should be ashamed of themselves. Thank you for defending the innocent.

  3. you will always find jerks who have nothing better than make thoughtless comments to piss other people off. either they like the attention, or really are that emotionally retarded.
