You know when you’re drowning, you don’t actually inhale until right before you black out. It’s called voluntary apnea. It’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding. But then when you finally do let it in, that’s when it stops hurting. It’s not scary anymore. It’s - it’s actually kind of peaceful.
What we do is we keep filling the
internetworld with things like this so that the assholes can’t help but see it. And see it. And keep seeing it until it starts getting through. Because it’s the constant flow of assholery that normalizes their behaviour, and that’s what we have to supersede.
