disclaimer to all friends, soon to be friends, acquaintances, family members trolls, assholes, and anyone else reading this:
1. i am blunt
2. i use sarcasm but i am very bad at it, instead of getting offended and screaming cuss words at me over the internet please ask me to rephrase what i am saying or to clarify, you can do this by using cuss words if you want, but i mean at least make sure you are getting pissed about something real and not a miscommunication in language
3. i don’t understand sarcasm or other forms of humor and sometimes will not understand implied theories, even if it is common knowledge. i will ask, please, refrain from calling me an idiot bc i don’t think like everyone else.
4. i am political, or at least i have been told i am, so if you don’t agree with me, that is cool we can probably have a fantastic conversation as long as you understand that i have probably thought about my political stance way more than you have, and i am not likely to convert to your theories. i will not ridicule you for your ideologies* so please don’t ridicule me.
5. i am against cultural homogenization and racial whitewash.
6. i am a pretty nice person. that doesn’t make me naive or dumb or ignorant. it means that i try to not go around hurting ppl unnecessarily. there are times, though, when i will speak my truth and it might hurt your feelings, if that happens let me know bc i don’t like to make ppl hurt.
*if you are a person who is a bigot, if you hate ppl on the basis of: culture, genetics, gender, lack of gender, sexuality, lack of sexuality, religious beliefs, lack of religious beliefs, economic levels, or any other pretentious bullshit, if you have no basis for your beliefs beyond simple stereotypes and generic hatred i will not have a conversation with you. if you are some tinfoil hat nutcase who believes: anyone outside of america is bad, the devil planted dinosaur bones to throw ppl off so they don’t believe in god, there is no such thing as gravity, poor ppl are lazy, ppl of color are bad or women are stupid, queer ppl are going to hell, ok anyone is going to hell, or other insane off the wall made up jibberish, please simply fuck off, we have nothing to talk about at all. i will not listen to you and you will not listen to me. so it will just be screaming and i have, you know, scientific proof that you are a numbskull so just save everyone the time, hassle and insanity and take a flying leap off a tall building. i have no time or patience for that.
for everyone else…hi i’m gracie
