SuzyQ, of Pink Truth, offers Pink Truth haters some advice
Ironically, it is not until the 6th point that she even refers to Mary Kay. Even then it is only the initials MK.
Before anyone accuses me of being petty (and go ahead, it is just that by reading this you are giving me the opportunity to defend myself before you accuse me!) let me clarify that I am not merely criticizing her technique of writing out her "hate-filled missives" three times before sending/posting/publishing. I am pointing out something that has been coming more and more into focus lately. Namely that for many people the argument here has nothing to do with Mary Kay.
It seems to me that some people become so emotionally invested into something that they used to be involved in (job, church, band, club, school, etc.) and were in some way removed from (typically not on "their terms") and feel some need to assert themselves in such a way as to not feel (in the case of guys, which I more often observe this phenomena) "emasculated"... or, more generically speaking, "shamed".
Whether anyone outside of the individual person actually perceives them as any less of a person as a result of their sudden (or gradual) lack of involvement is irrelevant. They feel like the world is "calling them out". "Lazy loser", screams every person they interact with. They are perpetually forced to exclaim, "No, but I am not... I am relevant. I do have purpose. I did not waste the last xx years of my life."
Am I saying that this is the case with all of the participants on Pink Truth?
Of course not.
Am I suggesting that it is with most of them?
Does it seem like a pretty good explanation for why some people that you deal with (in any sphere of your life) can't seem to look rationally at the topic under discussion?
I think so.
Could it apply to Pink Truth? Particularly in the case of an angry "how to write an angry missive" missive?
You tell me. What do you think?
