I have this love-hate relationship with the Internets.
I’m beginning to think that some people on the Internets deliberately search for ways that they can prove other people wrong, just so they can feel good about themselves. Gosh forbid you make a generalization without folks saying, “NO. YOU ARE INCORRECT. GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200.”
Also? Trolls are the modern-day equivalent of schoolyard bullies. Hiding behind their ‘puters. Apparently some people’s mommies never taught them that they should treat each other the way they want to be treated and that they shouldn’t be rude. They need to go sit in the corner for a while. Unless they are baby. Because Nobody puts Baby in the Corner. Got that?
And? Sometimes people will dissect things you write or “say” and split hairs and make it sound like you are a giant idiot. And you know you are correct but you didn’t say it in the way they wanted you to say it so they twist what you’ve written and make it sound like you meant something else. And you didn’t mean it. And if you are confused, good, because I am, too.
Thing the Third? Sometimes people get into comment wars about what you write and it has nothing to do with what you wrote. Not one iota. Or they accuse you of “not having enough experience with autism.” Snicker. Yeah, because I DON’T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH AUTISM. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I mean, I have two kids with it and a degree in it, but I know NOTHINK. I know NOTHINK!
With that in mind, Go see me in a few places, would you?
And like me on Facebook, because I’m a narcissist and need gratification.
And follow me on Twitter because I have ADHD and can’t focus on more than 140 characters at a time (even though I always, ALWAYS have to edit down what I tweet because I write. Too. Much.).
And sometimes I write other places.
And? It’s National Delurking Day! Not sure what that means, but go ahead and delurk. Because my status as a Mommy Blogger and my fragile ego depend on you clicking, liking, sharing and posting. Amen.
Disclaimer: Yes, I’m being facetious. But click, like, share and post anyways. Just for fun. You know you want to.
