“And what evidence would that be?” I can hear you ask.
That Ærth has steam engines.
The evidence is in an article in issue 2 of Journeys on page 39, and was written by one Ernest Grumbold—a nom de plume of Gary Gygax. Since that detail has been confirmed I now have an article to write for this blog, and I’m going to make it pay to read. It’s going to be a long one, folks.
But fret not, it’ll be just a couple of dollars—after all I’ll have a ton to cover, such as why a world with magick would need steam engines..
That’s about as far as I remember, but I do remember the gist; your fear isn’t you. Your fear is only a transient emotion that will pass. You are not your fear, when your fear passes you will be left and what once stressed you so will be gone.
I’m autistic, a high functioning autistic by still autistic. Things can get to be too much for my and I will have—as we call them—melt downs. Being terrified for no reason you can see is frightening, I wouldn’t recommend it.
Take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and let yourself relax. Find yourself a quiet place and just chill. And should some belligerent soul approach you just say, “May I help you?”. And always remember the words of the old rabbi who once said, “Be kind to those who persecute you, it’ll piss them off.”
To be honest with you here, it’s about bullying. Sexual harrasment and rape is a part of it, but that is all a part of bullying.
What is bullying?
It’s treating other people as if they were worthless. It’s treating what they are and what they do has having no real value beyond how you can use it to belittle them and amuse yourself. The worst thing about bullying is that the victim is made to feel worthless and undeserving of any consideration, and most often because the bully is a raging bigot.
Well I say fuck that. You get right down to it you have no damn reason to bully, no real reason at all. You don’t want to listen, you don’t want to consider the other has a person in his own right, then get lost. There is no real purpose in bullying other than to lord it over another or to bolster your own fragile ego. That’s my opinion and you can suffer.
You’re not alone on this planet and it’s time you woke up.
One last thing; has it ever occurred to you that you are being a failure when it comes to reproduction? That by bullying you are convincing other people that you would be a lousy mating partner and thus to be avoided. And that should you ever produce a child you are going to raise that child in a hostile environment where his survival and success is most likely going to be a dismal failure? Do you want to raise your kid in the sort of environment you hate so much? Then why do you insist that others have to live there too.
