As many now know, Facebook has been on a rampage with the whole jailing thing. I have written about all the times I have been in Facebook jail and for what, HOWEVER, this is probably the dumbest reason to get banned out of all of them.
In a true crime group that I’m in (and there are many), we were asked what we would do if we found a stranger/intruder behind our shower curtain. My answer was what I would do. Facebook thought that it went against their community standards. And, again, the only thing you can do is disagree and hope that they actually look at context of the statement and change their mind. Nope! That was great.
What did I say? I said that I would stab the person behind the shower curtain in the eye with a toothbrush BUT that my dog would likely not allow anyone to come in my house and hide. Yup, banned.
What to Do? What to Do?
So I just stayed off Facebook. Got some reading done but it was kind of messed up because I have groups and I couldn’t tend to them because…..banned. They also made it so that my other account couldn’t post in groups.
Because I couldn’t discuss my true crime shows with anyone, I got behind on my two favorites.
But then I made the mistake of going to Twitter to try to learn. I wanted to talk to people and learn things. Like how adults with autism feel about their treatment. I probably should have just read the books I got on the subject. Would have caused less stress. I also wanted to talk to fellow Kpop fans (as only maybe ONE of the people I talk to likes Kpop and she likes BTS *rolls eyes*). I wanted to see what Twitter was about. Boyyyy, did I find out what Twitter was about.
I see why celebrities close their accounts. You can’t get a whole picture of a person based off a few characters. It’s not possible so there is a lot of misinterpretation. And I’m just a nobody so celebrities get it wayyy worse than I could ever fathom.
One thing I learned on Twitter was just not to say anything. Just shut up. Because you will be attacked. If you say the wrong thing about a Kpop group, they will find you and kill you. If you say something thinking you intended good things to people with disabilities, they will come for your head. I’m so used to Facebook and typing paragraphs that Twitter is a bit hard for me. I’m pretty much new to it although I have had my account for a while now. I just never used it. I see why now.
I have now lost the ability to “can”. I used to have a very hard heart. It had to be that way but I did my best to fix it but yeah…. I think it’s just better to keep people away from you. Just let them assume. Nothing you say or do will change their mind as they have already formed an opinion. Yours doesn’t matter. It only matters with people that know and respect you. Those folks do NOT know OR respect you and they have that right as they are behind the screen and can say whatever they like with no repercussions.
Playing on Instagram
Instagram is still basically Facebook but just with pictures. I got warned a lot in my comments because my one comment looked like another one. I’m like “Can yall literally just leave me alone?” They got whole people on here scamming people out of money by telling them to pay a fee to get a big amount but they are more concerned with my “trash” emoji.
So I just go and watch my Kpop folks on YouTube for joy. Maybe I should write about my obsession for Kpop groups which started about 3 years ago. It all started with EXO.
I will say that Kpop has gotten me through this quarantine with so much new content and so many groups that are “new” to me to explore that it’s literally all I listen to and it makes me happy.
Oh, I DID learn that you can get over 1,000 views on your reels by attaching a Kpop song and tagging members of said Kpop group. LMAO! My cat and a cup of Chai got over 1,000 views because of WayV and SHINee songs.
Clearly my cat and a cup of Chai are more interesting than me. I had to laugh.
What I Learned
Honestly, I’m just going to do what makes me happy. If that’s coloring, watching Impractical Jokers, working out, reading, writing, then so be it. Facebook, you are not the boss of me. I like my friends but I like my peace and freedom of speech as well. It seems as though the only place I really have freedom of speech is in my mind at this point. At least I won’t be attacked. Well, I have bipolar disorder so that’s not entirely true but, yeah….. I want to live in a world where I can have a different opinion and not be attacked. I want to live in a world where, even though we disagree, we still respect each other enough not to resort to namecalling and personal attacks (I get called a man a lot or people go to my page when I have unattractive pics up and attempt to talk about how ugly I am). I made a post about why I posted unattractive pics here. Part of the reason is because people treat you differently when they think you are unattractive. As if you are less than because you are, in their eyes, ugly. BUT if you look like something, they just leave the conversation because they ran out of ammo and can’t use your looks against you.
This world is interesting. Every single day of my life I learn more. I mean, I REALLY learn a lot and, the more I learn, the more I hate it here. If it weren’t for my daughter, I literally wouldn’t be here. Oh, I should blog about that too. The EAP people had a problem with that response. They felt that my reason for living should be something outside of my little family. Unfortunately, it’s not and that’s what I have a psychiatrist, psychologist, and meds for. That’s actually a whole nuther blog as well.
The quarantine is hard but, when you’re already suffering from sometimes crippling depression, it can be unbearable.
But yeah, I’ve had a lot of time alone…. with my thoughts….Thanks Facebook.
