It’s been a busy bear week! Lasers and videos and articles, it’s been a big week. First up, I was in the Buffalo Spectrum paper, this article isn’t 100% accurate or anything, I must not have been clear about a couple things… first, I wouldn’t consider myself an ex-Pornstar, I just backed out for a while and stopped shooting mainstream stuff… second, the first line says “she isn’t a glamorous toddler” which is a total falsehood, I’m totally a glamorous toddler!
She wrote a nice article all things considered and was very thoughtful and positive. I’ve been featured in various media for a long time now, and it’s nice to see things getting progressively more tolerant.
[about to get political hold on to your butts] I suppose there’s something to be said about intolerant people are getting more intolerant. There’s been a recent rise of conservative/alt-right/TERF blogs and Reddits attacking ageplayers (not specifically ABDL, more just ageplayers) and grouping them with pedophiles, pushing the idea that acceptance of LGBT means acceptance of pedophilia/bestiality etc, that old chestnut.
I think that the attacks on “undesirables” have become much more insipid, much more disingenuous. You see people trying to use transpeople as political pawns, implying that voting D means acceptance of all the harmful things they tell you transpeople will do. There’s a huge amount of money in it and a huge amount of attention to be gained from standing up “against the transgender/PC/degenerate cabal”. It’s an organized attack and putting transpeople and other marginalized groups that are largely trying to be left alone at rish.
I have a feeling that this fight for decency, inclusiveness is not going to end anytime soon. People will use acceptance of “non-normative” behavior used as a weapon. They’re going to jump into every post and every blog, planting seeds of dissent. They’re going to mass flag AB/DL sites, they’re going to fund transgender people that push their anti-trans agenda, they’re going to doxx and try and get ageplayers shunned. Since the president has pulled back the veil, you’re going to see a ton of money spent on hating people like me, and more followers born from their efforts. This is the last grasp of Evangelical dominance in this country, and they’re not going out without a fight.
Expect to be called a bigot because you don’t tolerate the intolerant. Expect to hear antagonism on every front, friends and co-workers, in every comment section, in every political advertisement pushing the agenda that anything non-straight, non-cis, non-missionary should be hidden or punished. People are being told that “transgender people are forcing you to conform to their beliefs!” and so they rebel, and “disagree” or have an “opinion” about something. Confronting that one’s opinions might be wrong, to really think about an issue and to question your views, it’s so hard for so many but such an essential part of the human experience. Calling me “she” is an impossible task for someone who knows only what they’ve been taught, not open to what they could learn.
I’ve been very tired of this lately. I’ve always been very active in politics, the punk/anti-bush movement out of high school, Marijuana legalization and expanding Trans health care in the late 2000’s, The Occupy Movement in the early 2010s, now getting heavy into elections and local politics in PA, I’ve always wanted to be Mayor of a small town somewhere and realistically expect to someday. I’m not trying to wear myself out with posts like this, I just needed to vent a little.
I was going to just make a little warning about the alt-right posts about Ageplayers and ended up spilling my political angst. I usually keep the politics to my personal life, makes me feel like Batman and the least amount of attention I can draw to this community from trolls the better.
Basically, stay out of the comments, don’t engage trolls and don’t let the bastards get you down. I’ve had to check myself and my stress/anxiety levels, stick to single-player games for a while, been listening to more podcasts instead of news, avoiding reddit etc. You know those end of the world seed vaults on the Northpole? Reddit is like that but for terrible opinions.
This isn’t about the Anthony Padilla Video, the comments on that are pretty darn friendly. And the Buffalo Article was super friendly too, I just needed to remind myself to not get so bothered by things like this. We’ll have to weather this storm of trolls, but even in my little lifetime I’ve seen things change significantly for the better, I’m sure the older folks can speak to that as well. I’m going to spend a lovely day at a theme park with a friend and then come home and snuggle my bears, there’s no reason to add “get stressed out by the news” in my agenda.
Hugs, new pull-ups video soon!
