In every discussion board, there is that thread. That one thread wherein everyone's responses were written in the language of massive FAIL. The thread where you wished you could rebut each and every statement already posted, but you can't because your hands are sweaty and shaking with rage and you're afraid that you won't be able to remain civil.
For me, it was the homosexuality thread at the Xientian.com forums. (I'll be C&P-ing all posts, because the thread has since been merged with the bisexuality thread, making it a humongous clusterfuck of FAIL.)
( It happens. I cry and rock myself to sleep.Collapse )
To be fair, though, there were some voices of reason, like ( this lonely soulCollapse )
Finally, I couldn't stand it anymore. In between the usage of the word "homos" like it's suddenly acceptable to call lesbians and gays that and the stinking stench of moral superiority, I just. Couldn't. Take. It. Anymore. So I replied. ( Unleash the pink rage-filled CAPSLOCK OF DOOM~!Collapse ) A little vicious? Yeah. I had to edit it a couple of times because some of my thoughts were a little too offensive and insult-riddled, not to mention punctuated by the f-bomb. But, hey, I tried to be rational, open to debate and most of all, tried to go back to the original topic, which everyone seemed to have forgotten.
After posting, I left the forums and wandered the intarwebz to cool off my anger. I had a sudden, sinking premonition that no one would reply to my post. I even mentioned it to ulop, telling her that I was a "discussion killer".
Man, I'm like psychic or something. I should use my powers to win the Lotto.
At around 9:30 pm, ulop called me and said that the discussion had been locked. Sure enough -

Topic locked. Discussion has reached its climax. Will also be moved to the Archives.
What kind of motherfucking BS is "Discussion has reached its climax."?! That wasn't climax—hell, that wasn't even first fucking base! If I were wanking off, that would be the part where I wash my hands! OH MY GOD. Climax, my ass.
It's interesting to note that the mod(?) who locked and archived the discussion was the OP. S/h/it was also the one, during the course of the thread, who posted the most homophobic statements. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Fuck this shit, man.
