sarospeaks asked:

Dude, you have told a person to *kill themself*, and that its *too bad they arent dead* because they *criticized* you. Stop acting as if you have the moral high ground, stop acting like you're some victim of cyberbullying, and check *yourself*.

maymay answered:

I’ll tell you what I told Cliff at pervocracy: “You do not get to rewrite history to start at the first thing you took offense for and then discount the years of historical context built up around that issue.” Follow the link, read the post, or don’t—it’s up to you.

But the fact that you feel it’s important to spend your time initiating an engagement with me using invective, jargon-laden terms rather than engage with even the smallest fraction of what I actually said, why, when, to whom, and in what context (hint: I didn’t know you even existed before right now), all because you think that somehow marks you with moral righteousness to a particular group of “social justice” Tumblr users?

Well, given that that’s the sort of behavior you think is actually good and appropriate, I sincerely think you should kill yourself.

Let’s be clear: it’s *always* wrong to say ‘kill yourself.’ No exceptions.  It’s *always* abusive.  No one who is serious about preventing abuse in the world would say it because they’d know that it’s a super-serious offense.

I’m not exactly sure what it was I said that was “jargon laden”. Check yourself, maybe? It’s not really jargon, and you yourself used it, but that’s all I can think of besides saying “telling people to kill themeselves is bad”.

Also, you know there are character limits on asks, right? So while I did address the slightest thing you said (kill yourself) I didn’t really have room to do much else.

Anyway, I have a question.

Is there ever a time someone criticizes you and you DON’T tell them to kill themselves? Like, is there a process where you decide whether or not a person deserves to remain on this planet, or do you just jump straight from disagreement to “kill yourself”?

Is there a level of disagreement that makes you stop and think “maybe it’s me?” I mean, maybe you concluded that it ISN’T you, but do you ever just ask that question?

I’m just wondering because you say you’re doing all this for the abuse survivors, but you seem perfectly willing to trigger them and engage in abusive behavior to get more hits on your website.

Read this.

Then, if you still feel the need to ask me questions I’ve answered over and over again, kill yourself.
