“My friend Peter Rojas said something the other day that felt like a punch in the gut.
He wrote on twitter “Most people disagree, but I think it’s important to not use services that you have issues with, even if they are free.”
For several months I’ve been uncomfortable with my relationship with Facebook
But there was so much good: I sold work and calendars, I knew my cousin’s birthdays, I made new friends, I could while away domestic winters with other stay at home mums. I met and befriended artists.
In a Nutshell
This was the final, camel-back- breaking straw:
But host pages titled ’12 year old Sluts’ under the heading “controversial humour” (I won’t go into the revolting nature of this site, I won’t)
and this: [Controversial Humour] Why did the person above me get raped? Because I was horny…..
and this: [Controversial Humour] Slapping Bitches, (with its so many funny photos of woman getting hit)….
and: [Controversial Humour] Urinating on sluts while they are passed out… are you laughing yet?
I can’t work with that world view.
So, after I’ve collected as many email addresses as possible and scoured my status updates for any that deserve keeping
I am a diarist after all
Then I go.
In other news:
Babies are growing:
Flowers are collected in vases,
Paintings are going
Back and forth and back
So that I feel like the creative version of window wiper blades…..
