Wallflowers on Reddit

I’m being told that Redditors are fainting in shock over the cussing I unleashed yesterday at a Russian patriot.

Gosh, maybe I should start issuing trigger warnings so that the tender sensibilities of the gentle wallflowers on Reddit don’t get too scandalized.

  1. OH NOES THE REDDIT DOWNVOTE ARMIES ARE AMASSING AGAINST CLARISSA

    THERE WILL BE NO MAGIC KARMA UPVOTE POINTS NOW

    ๐Ÿ™‚

    You realise that when I’m on your blog, I don’t even see your upvote/downvote points?

  2. Wait, this brought Redditors to your attention? Not the “I don’t want to hire anymore Women” post? Because I saw that one posted in several subreddits and some people bend over backwards over it.

    You do right in not giving a shit. You know those loosers who are angry that nobody in real life except their relatives care about their grand theory of life that solves every problem on earth? They go on the internet, create a serious/political subreddit or participate in such a subreddit and then proceed to be angry that nobody except their relatives cares about their grand theory of life that solves every problem on earth.

    tl;dr: Everything posted on reddit is humorous bullshit, some authors are just incapable of recognizing this.

    1. I get constant links from Reddit. But I never follow links to places like that. I don’t expect anybody there to say anything hugely profound. The comments I get from people who come over from there are all too stupid.

      1. I went to Reddit to find an answer to a problem and it’s completely overrun stupid MRAs and PUAs on the most unrelated things. To find anything worthwhile is like digging for a diamond in a dung midden.
        The babies go to Ask.fm for their trolling and informational pleasures instead of AskYahoo now.

    You might find this article interesting.

    “For the past three years or so, at least one stranger has sought me out pretty much every day to call me a fat bitch (or some pithy variation thereof). Iโ€™m a writer and a woman and a feminist, and I write about big, fat, bitchy things that make people uncomfortable. And because I choose to do that as a career, Iโ€™m told, a constant barrage of abuse is just part of my job. Shrug. Nothing we can do. Iโ€™m asking for it, apparently.”
