I’ve decided to leave a little more detail about why I’m taking a long break from Fluther. Again. Someone just sent me a private message gloating about my “chickens coming home to roost,” presumably because I’m being wolfpacked again on Fluther for holding a view which contradicts the pedestrian, middle-class, liberal prejudices of the local denizens. My response to him, and to you, is that it would no more concern me if the entire world disagreed with my internalized morality than if not a single person did. I have spent my life unapologetically doing what I regard as right, and I have no intention of changing. Ever.
But the sight of Flutherites doing what they do best – namely, patting each other on the backs for creating an echo chamber which reinforces their cultural stereotypes and classist bourgeois bigotry – always makes me annoyed and frustrated. I don’t come here to feel frustrated; I get enough of that in my daily life.
So I’m going away until I once again forget why I left Fluther in the first place. Maybe it will have died by that time and will save me the trouble of repeating this whole cycle.
