So this just happened…
I posted this:
yesterday, in response to the SDCC panel. I’ll admit, I could have been a little nicer about it, but this is how I interpreted part of what was said, and my PTSD was triggered, so nice wasn’t at the top of my list.
I had one person who bothered to ask me why I would say that. So I explained. Letting me explain helped bring me down. I was still unhappy about what had been said, but a lot less mindlessly angry.
This morning, I wake up to this:
in my notifications. I’m still not sure of how to respond to this, so I just left it alone. But then, a few minutes ago, regretfully, curiosity got to me, and I clicked to see her page.
And I’m greeted with this:
which leads me to this:
(The boxes after the @/ are covering the rest of my twitter name—I guess to keep me from figuring out their master plan.)
There is a call to arms to block and report me on twitter because of the message I sent. (and these aren’t even the only ones)
Like I said, I know I could have been a lot nicer, but I didn’t and don’t think what I said called for this. I explained to the person who asked me why that I had been triggered by my interpretation of what was said (even including Jared’s twitter in the tweets on the off-chance that somehow, he was completely heartbroken and devastated over the words of one nameless and faceless twitter-er).
But seriously—this is the fandom “family” I’m supposed to be a part of? That I’m supposed to want to be a part of? I am called a psycho because I have PTSD and get triggered? I get enough of my own family treating my triggers like a joke, I don’t need it here, too.
If this is the backlash I’m going to get—I just don’t think I can do this anymore.
