    this community isn't behaving responsibly with its words right now.

    I would say that some people are behaving in a way normally referred to as "abusive." Psychologically and verbally both.

    It's pretty sickening, and thus I know where you're coming from sweetie.

    I look forward to this site healing and your return.

    If it gets worse, I will take a break as well.

    The dead baby porn photos are still up, I believe, and that's all I need to know. It was traumatic to accidentally stumble over these. The commenter telling Kossacks to go shoot themselves is also here and has the ability to post and to recommend comments. Why? Isn't stuff like this part of the problem, this kind of violent intent toward others? Is that person part of our community? If so, we're in two really different communities, and I don't want to be in that person's world, sorry.

    Our conversations have been okay, and many have been rational, with people sometimes apologizing for when they've been overwhelmed with emotion. That's positive. But the rest?

    There is a distinct lack of empathy displayed toward those who have been victimized in their lives right now and who subsequently do keep guns. That should be a full stop for some people. Why aren't we talking about the societal fears which lead people to own guns in some cases? Such as a woman who has been raped in her own home or otherwise attacked?

    No, we aren't talking about that, and we aren't showing empathy for these people; we're just tarring them with the "irrational gun nut" stereotype.

    Be will, Sis River. ♥ You've been through a lot. I love you and look forward to your return. The site is less with you lurking.
