I would guess most of you already know this, but I keep a pretty low profile on the 'net. I'm active, but I'm not very out-going. So when I post feminist stuff, or angry stuff or possibly-controversial stuff, I'm pretty much never going to get a huge reaction, especially since I surround myself with people who believe the same/similar things to me, y'know? We might disagree with some things and on specifics, but in general, we're all working from the same page.

So I am really not used to hate and trolling against me.

And yet, a couple of days ago, that's pretty much what happened.

It's all under here, so you can ignore it if you want to! )

So that's what happened when I was awake, and I went to bed conflicted - I'm not normally fussed about people being mean to me, especially when they're insulting things that I believe in because y'know, I'm not gonna change my beliefs because someone swore at me. However the amount of attention and messages... I'm really not used to it.

I'll be honest, it was a bit upsetting. I can't really comprehend why people would disagree with me about this? I still don't think I'm wrong, but yeah...

Still! I've just checked the notes again (warily), and there're a lot more people agreeing with my sentiments and the people who reblogged me and added to what I said. So that's actually a relief, but yeah.

My very first encounter with trolls specifically going against me, and I survived! No flouncing or anything.

Also, sorry for making everyone click the links to see my responses, I just didn't want to paste yet more text into this entry.
