She said this. Read all the comments. Her explanation is in one of them.

I defriended. But then I felt bad about it, a little bit, so I went back to look at her journal again.

She said this. My comment is at the bottom. She hasn't answered.


Why am I posting about this? Because I feel kind of like a shit. I've spent much of my life learning about processes for transformation, particularly when it comes to changing people's minds and opening them to new things. Like I said to her, if I were a better, stronger person, I'd stay right in there with her, so that she could learn to see me and my friends as people who just want the same rights as anyone else. But, man. I'm sick of people who just don't think! And I'm really sick of having to be the understanding one, of reaching out to them because they think the right to an opinion means the right to be right without having to examine the consequences of their opinions.

I was a shitty teacher, too, if you couldn't tell. Never be the buddha, that's for sure.


In the spirit of fairness, if you think I'm missing something or being a retard about this, tell me. You, too, ithoughtsheknew. You haven't defriended me, and I don't want to be unfair.
