Just saw a security guard kick out a homeless guy and he begun the interaction with ‘are you okay’. I’ve been pressured via ‘are you okay’ a few times. Obviously it’s a different story if like your friend asks ‘r you okay’.

Kinda like i was watching terry from fatal fury - ‘are you okay?’ then buster wolf kicks out guy. I guess the fatal fury devs noticed something similar too?

Similarly, i’ve heard god bless is sometimes an insult around texas region

Living in anglo countries seems like hell on earth.

for the most part you’re right, but i feel like, at least online, people were so much nicer during the 2000s and early 10s. people seem downright vicious these days.

like. i come online to chill. the world is a dumpster fire. i’m here to get away from that for a bit. why are you (you referring to the aggressive people) here?

maybe it makes them feel better. all i can say to them, as someone who has been voluntarily hospitalized for homicidal ideation and is disabled due to rage issues and STILL manages to be kind and civil most of the time - get help maybe? idk? what is so joyful about getting a rise out of people? there’s so much more to life?

Some of it is performance, expectations and punishment. I’m a sorta toxic on twitter bc afaik, the whole point of twitter is to yell at companies and get into dumb fights with people. Like i’m not 100% sure what goes on in my head, but you know how one feel like peeing when they’re sitting on a toliet but not when sitting on a chair? Being on twitter feels like that.

Same rough deal with reddit. Plus local city subreddit feel super performative, like it seems like it’s all about ripping apart someone publicly.

And i don’t even use swear words on either of those. Both of these are learned behaviors, too many times have i posted “does X local story have Y in stock still”? and being told variations of kys and being downvoted into oblivion. I can feel my blood pressure raise when I downvote people, do I never downvote anymore.

So yeah i have a much better time on the fediverse cause everyone is much nicer hear and i don’t start imitating bad behavior
