Not Terrifying  
[livejournal.com profile] theretohere says I'm scary* and that everyone on the internet is afraid of me, so I'd like to clear up the misconception that I am mean and terrifying.


Dear Denizens of the Internets,

I am not scary and will not make you cry.

Love,
Raving_Liberal


There, don't you feel better now?



*She doesn't really say that in seriousness.

LOL!

I'll admit, I was a little intimidated of you before I friended you. But now that I know you better I think you're totally not scary and really nice!

And I'm not saying that out of fear, either! :P

I was supposed to be scared? Oops. Alas, I am un-intimidatable.

You don't count, because I'd already met your sister in person years before and she could vouch that I didn't have death ray eyes.

I for one feel SO much better that one particular person is not as scary as [livejournal.com profile] theretohere thinks she is. I mean, just one person who is nicer than previously thought makes the whole world a better place.

Or maybe it just confirms the stupidity of the person who called you scary. I suppose only time or maybe a psychiatrist will tell!

No, no! [livejournal.com profile] theretohere is a dear friend and a lovely person. She doesn't really think I'm scary, but has a friend who thinks I'm scary, and we were joking about how I'm obviously terrifying, since so many people seem to think so. Please no hating on [livejournal.com profile] theretohere. It makes Baby Jesus cry. See?

Um, I've never found you mean, though you are a little intimidating. But I always thought "Hell yes that woman is on my side!" every time I saw you lay the smackdown on some moron. You're usually really polite about it too. I don't get it.

i am not convinced. i can't really think of anything scarier than a feminist, home-schooling, lactivist, natural birth advocate with a blog. SAVE US ALL!

[identity profile] wundermuffin.livejournal.com on June 22nd, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
well, not everyone likes the word feminist because some feel that it has anti-men connotations, but i basically mean someone who seeks to empower rather than disempower women.

I've had a few people say something like that to me and it's mind-boggling! They obviously have no idea how many years I spent as a sad, sad dork on the fringes of my peer group.

Oh nothing much. Holly (theretohere) and I regularly chat on IM and were discussing how silly it is when people think I'm scary. One of her friends is very scared of (or intimidated by) me, so I posted this to poke fun at anyone who honestly thinks I'm anything other than a big ol' pussywillow.

It's that whole edumacated, well-written, well-researched thoughtful woman thing. Oh, and your willingness to speak your mind and stand by your convictions.

I guess I had a pass cause Lemon sent me your email first so I didn't see the scary parts. I'm still so glad she did cause I didn't have a soul that knew what in the hell I was going through and you sure did.:)

I've heard this said about me too (from a fellow scary woman) just because I've got a home of my own, a car, a job, etc. wow. who would think being a responsible adult who cares about stuff would be scary? Ah well. I'll claim it - because I don't want to hang out with those who exist otherwise.
