Once when I was 12 I dressed up as a Native American for Halloween.

D: D: D:

I totally forgot about it for the longest time, but looking back... holy shit. I'm kind of ashamed of my 12-year-old self, because that racist shit just isn't cool, for a multitude of reasons. I mentioned this to my sister today, and she's like BUT WHY? I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

I D:'d, and then we got into an argument that ended nowhere good. Somehow the concept of blackface was brought up and both of my sisters AND my mom said they didn't know what blackface was and they didn't see the problem with (a white person) dressing up as a black political figure for halloween (for example, Obama). They asked if it was okay to dress up as other presidents (like George Bush), and when I said it was fine they said I was the racist one. RIGHT. Because it's not like blackface is SERIOUS BUSINESS or everything, people are so OVERSENSITIVE these days.

Then they said if it was okay to dress up as a police officer for Halloween, it was okay to dress up as a Native American. BECAUSE THEY'RE THE SAME THING, OBVS.

I'm so angry right, now idekjskla; jagdsfefdjkdf dsa RAGE RAGE RAGE

GUYS. I don't think I like facebook. :(

Every time I read other people's status updates I make a D: 'BUT I THOUGHT YOU WERE NIIIIICE' face. Like, so far there's been shit-talking about other people and narcissistic proclamations of perceived sexiness and emo music quotes. YEAH, EMO MUSIC QUOTES. WHO DOES THAT?

So, question -- are people just meaner on facebook because they just want to blow off steam or is facebook behavior an actual indicator of someone's ~real personality? I mean, everyone is mean on the internet sometimes, it doesn't mean they're a bad person. But, like, CONSTANT DOUCHEBAG BEHAVIOR IS NOT OKAY.

I know this guy irl, and he's not a bad guy, just... seriously irritating. He likes to argue a lot, and see, I actually agree with him most of the time, but he's just so SMUG and ANNOYING about it I find myself arguing the other side, just because.

Right now I'm arguing with him on facebook. >:( Like, I don't even agree with what I'm saying! But SOMEONE has to knock him down a peg or two.
