I got doxxed and sent some really gross threats over twitter after I had a very calm and civil discussion with a friend. I missed capping it but they also claimed they hope someone makes an example of my cousin, a 7 year old girl, so I can see what kind of acts I’m supporting.
However, an important follow up, after speaking with the friend I had the discussion with it turns out the one who doxxed me came to them and told them that they were going to send me a message and make sure that I no longer bother anyone, etc. After some more talking and some relaying of messages I ended up actually speaking to the mother of the 16 year old girl who doxxed me and sent threats, and then to the girl herself. I wrote up a summary here.
I feel that with the unique nature of how this harassment turned out and actually having been able to confront the person who did it that people should see that people are being conditioned into thinking that this is an acceptable way to respond to people with different opinions. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t excuse it one bit, but it does highlight another huge problem in the internet social justice culture. Impressionable young minds are being mislead and manipulated.
My favorite part of the new fisticuffs is Matt yelling over Woolie explaining what newtypes are so now I don’t know what the fuck newtypes are.

I can’t speak for the historical Ieyasu, but I do agree that putting the two of them together never made much sense to me. SW characterizes Hideyoshi as a man who just wanted to make a world where everyone could be friends and be happy, which sounds a lot more like what Liu Bei has in mind.
Ieyasu had hundreds of Christian missionaries and converts crucified and exterminated and made it illegal for non-Japanese to step foot on Japanese soil.
Anyone with an attitude such as theirs—one that clings desperately to an unjustified hatred against others—is a worthless individual.
By the way, you’re welcome for that avatar image that I edited.
Someone is attacking while using an avatar you made?
That has to be one of the most hilarious fails I’ve seen in a long time.

Like, to put it in context, I’m sitting outside my run-down house back in my hometown, listening to Bachata music from next door, watching the general messy old overgrown unkemptness of living in the barrio and just really liking the comfort of being home.
Needless to say, I think the…
