I can't. It's too cringe. A lot of it had to do with low key incel culture and I'm glad I'm not an ignorant asshat anymore.

Why you got to tease me?

I really want to know now.

Well it's things like being an ignorant 14 year old and thinking a transgender person just want attention when in reality I was jealous of them and mad I couldn't easily swap body parts.

So when I was a junior in high school I had been dating this guy for a couple months who was a freshman. Now the age gap was a bit bigger than I would like so even though I allways was big on taking things slow and asking and I was even more cautious as I was at least someone cognize t of the dynamic. FYI, it wasn't that big of a difference but I was unsure and wanted to eir on the side of caution.

Now it had been like 3 months and we hung out and talked pretty often. Now here is the cringe part. See every once and awhile when we would hang out I would just say. Would u like me to kiss you. And he would always get super nervous and never say anything and doge the question.

Which is fine. But the problem is a time or two he would try and kiss me without asking and I wouldn't be into it as I would much rather set a precedent of verbal confirmation than not getting it. So over the 3 months we would cuddle or I sometimes kissed like his forehead pretty pg stuff (I say that like a peck on the lips isn't pg)

It wasn't that big of a deal but I was starting to get self conscious that I was doing something wrong or being a prick bc I was being anal about allways asking. And allways making him nervous.

Well after some time we were hanging out and it happens again I ask he gets nervous and doesn't say anything. So I kiss him anyway. And deadass afterwards I say "now was that so bad". And that shit is just branded into my brain forever. Holy shit. I hate everything about this.

One of many:

When I was a teenager, there was one of that early 00's "MMORPG". It was mostly text-based and PvP combat was literally a game of rock-paper-scissors with some twists. There were "guilds" you can enter for fee in in-game cash. I was into it and wanted to join a guild called "brotherhood of light" or something like that, but I was too poor in-game to afford to pay entry fee. Also, upon registration, one could provide a birthday date to receive on that date small present of in-game cash.

So, one day I was talking with my sister, and telling her how I hope to receive some cash on my birthday, so I can join "brotherhood of light". Then, I've noticed her become noticeably worry and discomforting. And then I've realized she have missed the part that I'm talking about on-line game and now she thinks I want to get real-life cash on my real-life birthday to pay for joining some real-life "brotherhood of light"! Of course, I've instantly reassured her I'm speaking about a game, but still, I remember that short period of time I've looked at her and realizing what a weirdo shit I'm talking.

I'm kind of nerding out a little but apparently the enemy of the "Brotherhood of light" is the "Dark Brotherhood"

Since I am deep in this rabbit hole I think this might be the best part of the site.

This page has "current messages" from their mediums. Some of which are apparently channeling Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Martin Luther King Jr. Some of these messages actually have very poorly recorded audio in which the medium is attempting to speak the way they think those two people speak.

Its interesting.

edit: oh an this article's headline is my favorite Feminine Ray Sent to Neutralize the Dark Forces

I have, in fact, never once been cringe.

Everything I've ever said or done has been, as the kids like to say, "based as fuck".

Yes.

I get what you're saying but I think that you're missing the context. Nerdy and I are friends off site (I think, I'm not going to presume to know how he feels about me) but I enjoy him a lot. We spend hours playing games together on a regular basis. We chat via text all the time. He knows (I hope) that I am actually very proud of him and I hope that he doesn't actually feel ashamed of who he is or anything he's done because I know that he's a person who tries his best and that's more than I can or anyone can ask of anything.

Please stop trying to make me feel bad for making a joke to my friend about him not being "based as fuck."

Wait you have friends?

Are you sure you are an anarchist? /s

For real though the idea of actually knowing someone in real life on this site is some how both awesome and terrifying to me.

tuesday wrote

you are not the first person today to question my anarchist bona fides. but yes, yes I do actually have friends offline ones that I sometimes get to see and hug and laugh with, not nearly as often as I'd like though.

That being said nerdy isn't one of them. We just know each other through here and Reddit, play a ttrpg on discord together and kvetch at each other in our Reddit mod group chat.

asterism OP wrote (edited )

Ah in my head "playing games together" meant in meat space but that can be a very online thing to.

Anyway the questioning wasn't me throwing shade I hope my "/s" made that clear, in retrospect maybe I shouldn't have joked after looking at the full context of the conversation I inserted myself into. So I'm sorry if I was mean or insensitive.

Then again maybe I am over thinking it, I do that sometimes too.

tuesday wrote

I too am wildly insecure and sure that everyone hates me. <3

You're fine. :)

asterism OP wrote

Ah that makes me glad ( not you being wildly insecure but that I am fine obviously )

Problem is I like to laugh and joke with everyone.

Other problem is there is no tone conveyed in written text.

Makes it really tricky to know how people are taking things so I always try to apologize early if I have even an inkling I said something wrong.

once upon a time I pretended that I was straight. This was after coming out in high school, because there were no queer adults that I knew or saw (before the early aughts media was a vast wasteland for queer representation in the media) so I reasonably assumed that you couldn't be a queer adult (.......sigh)

But I kept having all these queer feelings (you know, like queer people do) and so I started to GO TO CHURCH about it. y'all. I put myself through conversion therapy.

It ended one day after we went on a fellowship trip to see the Passion of the Christ in theater. Afterward I basically RAN to the nearest catholic church, which happened to be St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC (beautiful building) and threw myself on the front steps, on a very cold ass february night, with like that gross old snow that gets dirty and nasty just piled everywhere and WEPT. full on heaving ugly cry sobbing and there I am just a puddle of a human and this homeless person walks past and is like "what the fuck are you doing right now?" and I was like .... what the fuck AM I DOING right now????

That's how I became a gay.

The end.

I need more cringe ... So here is some of mine, I'll give some fake names or something I guess.

In college I had two really close friends, best friends if you will, Andrea and Mark. Now, because its relevant to who I was at the time/the story, Myself and Mark were male Andrea was female. Probably know where that is going but I "developed feelings" for Andrea. But it became clear to me that all the feelings were one sided and Andrea had no interest in me. However both Mark and Andrea were interested in each other but were in that awkward stage where neither wanted to admit it yet.

Queue winter break and I was back home and basically said a bunch of shitty things to my family because I was miserable, and jealous and feeling guilty for feeling miserable and jealous.

We get back from winter break and the first thing we do is we all get together to talk about how our break was. So me, Andrea, Mark and another friend Julian, whom we were all fairly close to, are sitting in one of our cars all sort of taking turns talking about our break. Well it gets to my turn and I decide to be honest for some fucking reason and I admit that I was basically miserable and feeling guilty all break. They ask me why and I admit because I was jealous of Mark. Mark, being a good friend asks why I am jealous of him, and I say in front of all of them (and I am fucking tearing up and shit). "Because I like Andrea but I know you like each other, and she doesn't have feelings for me" . I feel super bad for Julian but at least he had sense and wasn't personally involved because had I done that without an uninvolved person there (which I would have) I bet the cringe would have just intensified 100 fold. so he opens his car door and commands me and Mark out of the car. Mark sort of just walks off and Julian gives me a good talk which I don't really remember anymore.

Cringe is mostly over (though a little is left) but just to finish out the story. Andrea talks to me the next day tells me about how her career choice is going to involve travel and shit and how it won't work to be with someone who won't be able to do that and how she wants to just focus on her degree. No one ever told me that when you get rejected the person rejecting you usually tells white lies just to soften the blow because they have empathy and shit so I take this shit seriously (this being my second rejection). About a week later Mark tells me that he is going to ask her out and wanted me to know to try and clear the air. and I say that we are good but I warn him that she wants to focus on her degree etc.

They start dating I'm all pissed because I've been lied to. I am like depressed and disapppear for a month then for the month after that I go out of my way to glare at the two of them everytime I see them. Even going out of my way to like try and see them so I can glare at them. and then third month In I realize I was kind of a cringey asshole and I apologize. Kind of mad at myself about that still because they were honestly the two closest friends I ever had and things weren't the same after that but que sera.

Another cringey thing. So all my politics are cringe probs and I've gone through many changes over the years (I was once borderline fascist and basically a racist pos when I first started to form my own political thinkings) though each change mostly tends to be more anarchic until I am where I am now.

Well for a time I was literally that meme You've seen floating around here, the one with a bunch of frat looking dudes explaining how anarchism is basically just direct democracy? I was that frat looking dude. and I would get like physically upset when people would equate anarchy to destruction. I remember once getting mad at someone for coming to that conclusion and stating, "No, anarchism is a legitimate political identity" and then I was all like condescending and shit about it. I was a hardcore Chomskyite (yikes!) and basically being anti-american was my sole political identity.

Funny enough I became more anarchic when I began to realize (after reading huge amounts of Chomsky) that Chomsky really talks very little about what anarchy actually is, even in his like single work that is supposed to be about anarchy is just rehashing the things he says over and over again about whatever imperialism he is mad about and whatever commie state he loves.

Then I became a anarcho-pacifist (yikes!) and was a Christian Anarchist (double yikes!!) and yes if there are any anarcho-pacifist here your views are cringe. I don't even feel bad saying it. But also in reality I basically am an anarcho-pacifist because I am a giant chicken.
