Pinovax is a bitch and her minions are just as bad —by Anonymous
Are you the girl who got schooled yesterday after telling her how to run her blog? If not, no idea where you’d get that idea. - [fox]
If this is what you’re referring to, anon, please go back and re-read this entire exchange and give me an actual argument as to how I am a bitch. And try to read my responses in a matter-of-fact tone of voice rather than an emotionally driven one because that is how I formulated them in my head. I’m not going to put cute little emoticons to assure everyone that I am not in fact angry when I’m trying to make a solid, logical, and fact-based case. I feel as though a lot of people who argue with logic and a somewhat expansive vocabulary get mistaken as being abrasive, but really, I’m just trying to explain why I reacted how I did and why I did not find the original anon’s behavior or the burgundy-d out user’s attempts to continue trying to justify their baseless and drawn out defense to be okay in the slightest.
Also, for quick reference, here is the section in my FAQ that I was referring to in my last reblogged response:
I don’t know how to make it clearer that I simply don’t want to discuss my body without coming right out and saying “hey, I struggle with ___! Don’t talk to me about it!”, and to be honest, complete strangers don’t need to know all that. It’s my business that I’d prefer keeping to myself at this point. And nobody who messages me can say that they innocently didn’t know I didn’t want to talk about it because:
I have a message literally right there that everyone who isn’t on mobile can see. And if I go to my statcounter and see that nobody was on my ask page from my actual blog when receiving comments regarding my body or similar topics, I give the benefit of the doubt and handle the message with discretion and patience, as I stated in my original responses.
Bear in mind I work for my step father’s criminal defense firm dealing with 90% of the attorney-client communications, so of course I’m going to sound a little bit cold and formal (minus the swearing I throw in) in situations such as these. Don’t equate that with bitchy, though. Not everyone on this site is my friend and I think many people have made it abundantly clear that not everyone on this site is even friendly, so expecting me to act more than cordial, even when faced with sheer ignorance like this is ridiculous. If I’m going to get pestered even after making, what I think is quite a reasonable explanation for my actions, I will continue trying to get my point across until the person understands or simply leaves me alone. I may generally be patient and kind, but I actually have a very low bullshit tolerance level and I will not allow myself to be walked all over for the sake of fitting into the “kawaii” aesthetic of my blog and posts. Lower your utopic standards and you’ll have a much better time here (and in the real world, too!).
Also, thank you, Fox. I know I said it a million times yesterday in responses to anons, but it really means a lot to know that I really wasn’t being out of order regarding my actions.
