Re: Cause and effect

This post is kinda complicated for me. What do I want to say and what for? What makes sense?
Why saying anything at all? The thing is that I don't completely believe 27, that no one cares. I mean.... clearly no one would die or change anything major in their life if I would just disappear, but ....I don't know.... somehow I feel that I owe at least some people to not just disappear. I care. And I don't know why, but I am completely sure that a solid bunch of people here cares. And I like a lot of you and it is very hard for me and I will miss all good times and your comments.

This blog will be closed in few days. I have a new blog on a different plattform. I will complete and finish and close here everything and then disappear.

What else.... How and main thing what for to say
I don't expect anyone to change anything. I know that that is not possible. Things are just so. But I want a max on clarity. I have reread november LC of OOT and I have a feeling that there is a misunderstanding of what exactly is such a big deal in the situation for me.

It is not a starting comment of Thin, although "show us your titties" clearly crosses my boundaries by miles. But I cut men a LOT of slack for not so lucky formulation or not so classy joke. That in itself wouldn't have set me so off. The HUGE deal is him continuing after a clearly expressed disconsent on my side.

To continue in sexual direction across a drawn boundary is an absolute no-go in my value system. The reaction of the forum demonstrates that OOT has a different value system. It is OK in OOT, and interestingly enough, it is only OK when men transgress this boundaries. When MLYLT tried crossing multiple times boundaries of JM she got a lot of flack. And she didn't even ask him for dick pics. Thin didn't get any real push-back.

I deal in my job a lot with similar situations. But the difference is job and free time. In my free time I want to be relaxed and not fight off such crap. I really don't have to hang out voluntarily with no one who doesn't understand STOP.

The most incredible thing for me was the reaction of HT. Starting with patronizing attempt to tell me that how I feel is silly and continuing with the statement that there are different standards in RL and internet. How Johnny said....., to tell people how to feel, is whatever. And standards of every place, be it internet or RL are made by people who fill it. Obviously Thin's actions are in accordance with HT's "internet" social norms. This was a solid kick in my butt.

But that all are emotions without sense and purpose. The facts boil down to a completely incompatible values between me and OOT as a group. My decision to leave is a logical consequence.


I think that's it. Thank you all for the good time. I wish ya all a TON of fun and cool stuff and really juicy life to the fullest. You know ´...... no fear, no limits, being true to yourself and kind to those around you... I think you understand me.

This is not OOT though. But they were *******s. Maybe you can continue here?

Re: Cause and effect



Huge thank you guys for normal and cool reaction and understanding.

I didn't answer all PMs yet because it all is a little overwhelming. But everyone will get an answer. Few people asked for a link to my new blog. Clearly you can have it, but please don't redistribute it here (I would like to take only a good part of here with me.) and keep your expectations low .

It all is scary and cool and exciting. It is sooooooo

You can always come back to here (no OOT) if you want in the future. I'm always surprised more people don't quit 2p2 - it can be quite toxic. I try to just stay away from all threads that will bum me out and I understand it can be hard avoid.

Re: Cause and effect

You will be missed.

I tend to avoid the more cliquey "social" threads like the regular LC ones and just subscribe to whatever looks like an interesting topic. You could consider doing the same.

I was kind of surprised by the reaction from the 'mericans. They are all into this kind of politically correct "me too" "wouldn't touch a stripper on a stag do", "Ms. OOT should be put to rest" stuff but when they see actual sexual harassment they suddenly equivocate.

Re: Cause and effect

Apparently a lot of people in OOT have a reading comprehension problems.
