Why do people feel like they're able to call you and monopolize your time because they're bored or feel like conversing?
How do you know the person you're calling is doing absolutely nothing and is staring at the wall and dying to hear your voice?
Why does someone think they have the right to hold you hostage on the phone?
Since the introduction of text messaging when I was 16 (or my first cell phone anyway), I have stopped enjoying communicating via phone (unless it's very important, of course), and prefer to communicate via text messaging.
It's gives me less queasiness when I get a text ... I did turn off sound however, because I hate the sound of my phone ringing in the quiet, and even the vibration is infuriating, but it's a text and I can get to it when I am good and ready versus dropping everything I am doing to take your call and talk about absolutely nothing.
If it were up to me, I wouldn't hear from anyone at anytime ... shutting everyone out 24/7 seems like heaven.
If only I could experience that.
Anyway, check the details below to get the credits for what I am wearing in my image.
So as everyone knows, there is been movement on the African American front, protests and our voices are finally being heard and some changes finally being made.
But then, like all causes, there are people who are xtreme.
I ran into a few yesterday.
Some idiots I've never heard of before who all came to my post about wearing black skins if you're not black in Second Life and trying to gang up on me, but I filtered them fools out.
Most African American's in SL don't give a shit, but some are opposed to anyone who is not black in RL wearing black skins in Second Life.
They're comparing it to black face.
You read that right. BLACK FACE.
Okay, blackface is really offensive and a very insensitive thing that goes wayyyy back (and not too distantly in the past, too) when white people would portray blacks on TV/Movies/Plays and it was meant to be comical but it was meant to be a mockery of African Americans.
Dark face paint, bright red, ooga booga lips, just racist and insulting.
Now a handful of idiots in SL are equating THAT to a non black wearing a black skin in SL.
Some people really need a fucking reality check.
This is Second Life first of all, and you can do and be whatever you want as long as it doesn't involve criminal activities.
For the extremist on SLFB who are policing those who are non black but choose to be black in SL ... well, to me they're diluting the message we as black people are trying to get across.
And for the people who have never posted a pro-black article or message on their FB and all the sudden are on the BLM bandwagon to the xtreme, we see though your act, you're only an opportunist and it's as clear as day ... looking at you, Kalista Sincario.
None of those extremeists had a leg to stand on, no defense and nothing but insults and tagging other sick-minded people to help their lost cause.
I'm grateful SL has a block button <3
Whew, sorry for the long ass rant, but again, it's a blog, what do you do if you're not writing?
Welp, on to the Second Life fun, check out the list of goodies worn below:
