Hi everyone.

(This is just copied and pasted from Whispers, so if you’ve read this already there won’t be anything new here, either)

This is about something that’s recently happened on a story of a friend of mine. If you read it yourselves you’ll like know which one I’m talking about. It was immensely beautifully written, and, like the majority of blogs, books, movies, …….,  out there addressed some sensitive subjects. I have done this myself on a number of occasions, for example in the way Cari got pregnant (not wanting to give any spoilers here), but the difference is that for some reason, on her blog, her readers completely blew things out of proportion which led to her feeling the need to take down her blog.

Maybe one of you can explain this to me. If you don’t like something you’re reading, if you feel very strongly against the chosen topic, why on earth would you feel the need to continue reading and comment on every chapter just to say how much you hate it, like someone is holding a gun to your head? What exactly stops you from just leaving the blog and moving on? This is one of the first things I say on every one of my own blogs, but I’ll say it again now since apparently, some people can’t figure this out for themselves: If you don’t like what you’re reading, that’s perfectly fine, but move on. If my blog isn’t for you than I’m okay with that, but there’s absolutely no point whatsoever to you continuously telling me how much you hate what you’re reading. Personally I think if you keep reading regardless than you can’t really hate it as much as you claim, so stop moaning about it.

To be brutally honest, if this is you – if you keep reading something you hate and then tell the author how disgusted you are with it – you are immensely childish and immature and need to grow the fuck up before reading any kind of fiction again. These things are made up. Fictional. Not real. Get over it.

Her readers (and no, not all of them – there was a lot of support for her as well) really completely blew this out of proportion. In their mind, this male character raped this female character (which isn’t what happened at all. they were both more than old enough to make it clear that they didn’t want this – instead, neither said anything, they both stayed quiet about it and for the record – he didn’t want this at all either and was about as uncomfortable with the whole thing as humanly possibly, yet for some reason he’s the one who raped her and apparently it was disgusting. not sure what they were reading but the chapter in question had a different plot) which is about as far from the truth as you can get. The problem here is this new, modern take on feminism which dictates that men are to blame for everything everywhere and that women can’t possibly do anything wrong. (rant about modern feminism over).

So, to make a long story short: If you don’t like it, thank you for giving my story a try. Please leave. No one is forcing you to read something you’re uncomfortable with. If you feel the need to keep reading and commenting anyway, despite finding the content disgusting-

Grow. The Fuck. Up.

  1. Now that I actually woke up and realized what was going on, I can’t believe that someone did that. You know the bare essentials of my story so whoever was saying that, they don’t know much of anything. They can’t because the way she wrote that is so much more well handled then some victims I’ve seen write their stories. I agree with you 100%, they need to grow the fuck up. Period.

      It’s just so fricking immature, you know? :/ It’s like no one’s ever told them that fictional characters aren’t real when they were children -.- I don’t know how they go through life – there’s so many tv shows, movies, books, and so on that I love which I would have missed out on completely if my view was the same as theirs!

  2. I agree with you. I really feel bad that she had to cancel the story coz it is really beautifully written and I do admire the hard work she puts to it. I rarely leave comments but I do hope she finds it in her heart the courage to continue. Haters be damned.

      I completely agree, I hope she brings it back. It was so wonderfully written, and I know there were a lot of people who loved the whole story and especially the main character. Haters be damned!! *shakes fist*
