Angry

Okay, itís official Ė Iím pissed.

It wasnít until I spoke with another zefrank board member that I learned how much this pissed me off. And even then I waited to respond. I didnít want to react, but to respond.

And Iíve waited a week since our conversation and Iíve learned that Iím even more pissed than I thought I was.

If an attack was made based on a personís race, class, or weight the board would have been outraged, and would have acted accordingly. If it was on a personís sexuality there might have been some objections. But instead it was an attack on my gender identity, and a crude one at that.

Iím not lashing out at Topcat because thereís no point in doing so; he/she/sie is a narrow-minded idiot. This is something Iíve learned over the last few years here. But this person made a distasteful remark slamming me, and the board just turns its collective eyes away from the problem.

The thread has been viewed many times since my last post. This thread has endured over a thousand posts over the course of two and a half years and suddenly it dies. My theory is that it has died because no one wants to comment on the issue.

If anyone has issue with my gender identity and wants to bring it forth, please do so in the Debate forum and I would be more than happy to respond. If someone wants to taunt me in other threads, then have fun with it. If the rest of the board wants to sit by and allow this to happen, then I guess I will have to find another community with which to spend my time.

I've learned that talking to trolls on this board is a wasted exercise. Nothing happens, other than the troll gets a little frisson of excitement. Maybe everyone else has figured this out, too.

Well, sometimes you can trick them into letting you across the bridge.

There's always another possibility as to why nobody responded. It could be that they're not interested in starting more dreary board drama. Perhaps they assume you are mature enough to ignore the perceived slight. Or maybe they have learned that complaining about the behavior of others on the board, however justifiably, will get them nowhere.

Please don't be so quick to assume that everyone has issues with your gender identity. That may not be their problem with you at all.

So... does this make you a drama queen? or a drama king?

oh right.. smarty would be the drama Queen..

PS: I didn't respond because I figured the "daddy" was me... being the previous poster and a father and all.

If it's any consolation to you Deviate, remember that some people use the "Ignore" feature and might not even see TC's posts.

I saw it, but being dumb as a post, I didn't get it, so I ignored it.

I've thought about this thread often, but to tell you the truth, when it disappeared off of the front page of "Fast Chat" I was too lazy to go looking for it. Now I don't have to .

I have no problem with your gender identity, whatever it is, and have no problem saying so.

I'd ask you to be my GBF, but really, I have no idea for sure if you're gay, bi or straight, and really hadn't given it much thought.

Besides, I currently have a crush on Mr. Smartypants. I think he's taken though...
