I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
okay but this still constitutes a different frame of interaction with other people where interaction is determined by different parameters than previously like… maybe we aren’t becoming slaves to technology or maybe we are, but how we interact with people at a distance and in our immediate surroundings, what we value in people we’re close to, how we maintain or initiate our relationships, how we discover the world, how we view the world, etc, is absolutely being shifted in a significant way. not necessarily a abd way but its not the same kind of communication and that seems evident - even if it isnt inherently worse or better in any way
I didn’t edit this one. Just look how gorgeous he looks. I don’t understand his sweater but he rocks it.
So this guy started talking to me on kik and it wasn’t that nice really. As you can see he called me all sorts of stuff as fat, told me to cut my wrists and to go back being anorexic. I told him I’d post our convo on my tumblr and he begged me not to since he was afraid he’s gf would see it, and I don’t want to ruin their relathionship but I’m not gonna be silent about this either. So when i told him id post it he posted a little bit of our convo instead where I called him a bitch, so now I’m getting shit for it. And not just this, he even called his own gf horrible. I’d be very very happy if you could spread this, apparently I’m not the first one.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS. MAKE THE GIRLFRIEND FIND THIS
THIS ISN’T OKAY. SIGNAL BOOST. NOW.
Make this bastard pay for all the shit he said. What decent human being says those things to a person and expects it to be okay???
