Your problem is how you communicate badly.

And how inconsistent you are. You said you weren't going to talk about feminism anymore, and I didn't ask you to. I was addressing your communication problems.


The only reason I was talking about it was because you brought up my last blow up, and I was addressing WHY I had a communication breakdown during that event, Stripey. The changing of the subjects lead me to an area of discussion I could not argue against because I was not prepared. When I get frustrated (and I think anyone making one argument and having the topic change twice before you come to a conclusion on any of the previous ones would get anyone frustrated) I start to communicate badly.

I should have said "NO were talking about Misandry" at the start when they tried to change the subject to Economics, however I had some info with that first topic change. Then the topic changed again and I had NO info.

So yes it is my fault I let the subject wander to where I got frustrated and angry. I should have stuck to my first topic and not let anyone bring in a related but different topic.

So main points.

1. I come in with a differing view. (Hatred of Feminism as you say.)
2. I argue my view.
3. I don't think to say "no" to topic changes and I get lead into an area that I don't have information.
4. I don't have information so that makes me frustrated.
5. I get frustrated, I communicate poorly.
6. I communicate poorly, I get angry because of it.
7. I get angry then I start being an asshole

So I wan't to cut this in the nub, Im NOT going to talk about Feminism or anything like that ANY MORE. And the only reason I was talking about it now was to explain myself.



You communicate badly. Period. You communicated ideas that people didn't like, and you did it really badly. Then you were hyper sensitive defensive, and you pissed people off.

If you know you can't have these kinds of discussions without blowing up and you decide to take part in them, then that's your fault.

If you then blame people for this stuff which is your problem and not actually their fault, they will remember this and be pissed at you.

If you would like some assistance in avoiding a big blow up, that's fine. Plenty of people can sympathize and would be glad to help out. But only if you stop being a jerk and own up to your mistakes when you've made them.

Alright, I'll try something new here: Rothide, you appear to be pissed off. Go take a break and a breather before you start making mistakes and say things you later won't want to lay claim to. Or stick around, but make note of when and why and how you get pissed beyond recognition.


I'm sorry if it seems like I'm pissed. I'm really not pissed or angry, I know that I fail to communicate and that frustration can lead me to anger and acting like an asshole.

I'm just trying to explain why I think this shit happens when I post.

And thank you, please do this in the future stripey, if someone says "Your getting angry, go cool off" I think I usually listen. There may be proof of that being wrong too, and I can accept that as well. Either way I'll try to keep level headed from now on.

Either way though, I don't want to argue feminism anymore. To much like putting a lit match next to the munitions storage for my taste.


Alright then, that can happen.

The thing about discussions on feminism (or other topics) is they show up a lot in conversations, even when Tat is not making a comic with direct feminist themes.

I do understand how frustrating it is to communicate badly. Just as long as you recognize your limitations and don't blame other people for them, things will work out.

I feel like we should have a code word.

When I'm being a royal buttface at home, this is referred to as Evil Robot Stripeypants.

Congratulations Rothide. You admitted yourself to having been an asshat. No sarcasm here, it's a tremendously hard and applaudable thing. You are in the right path, which is what both me and stripey want for you. Still, though, fail to understand why you refuse to do engage in the comparatively feat of apologizing for it.

No shame in that, man. Being able to do so is something to be proud of.

I mean... one of his favorite quotes is something he said. He quotes himself in his own profile. And it's a total d-bag quote.

Remind me never to link my deviantArt page to you people....

I hope Arthain's got a thick skin, but even I want to make fun of him for some of that stuff.
(Quoting yourself in your profile, who does that?)

Also, fuck this guy:

Amiright?

Speaking of art is there a general thread somehow I haven't seen yet to share art and tips and the like?

I don't think so... that would fit into the general discussion forum. I know we have a handful of artists, though I don't know how many of them are around much.

I'm a ass-hat too! Applaud me ! I'll even apologize sorrily!
I even pay my taxes! Not only that, but I give them extra cash deducted from every paycheck just to be extra-safe. Bring back that loving feeling.
