Perceived Exaltation 

If you frequent social media then you may have seen how some people interact with celebrities. People in the entertainment industry who are famous and popular in the mainstream media. Both male and female celebrities have a wide range of fans: from the causal “Love your work.” types, to the overzealous “Oh my god, you’re my idol!” types. Both can be quite respectable in their interactions and both can make a celebrity’s experience on social media a pleasant and exciting one.

But there is also another spectrum of fandom in society. This one includes fans who’s opinions are more based in their core of heart, be-it admiration or spite. These particular fans, whichever end of the spectrum they’re on, they are either positive or negative purely. From the unconditionally adoring “You’ve inspired me, I’m with you no matter what.” types, to the spitefully aspersing “You suck, and I hope you die.” types.


Both can be quite revealing in their extremes and both can come-off as unexpectedly perturbing, to a degree. But I would say that both are somewhat necessary as the prior example (the adoring type) is the type to stick by you no matter what, and the latter (the disparaging type) keep you cautious and vigilant.

As fans (and admirers) some of us tend to forget that these are still flawed human beings. They have dreams, aspirations, fears, obsessions, habits, beliefs, convictions, phobias (probably not Public Speaking though), and desires. They are educated on somethings, they are uneducated on somethings, they have perspectives and opinions, they make mistakes and sometimes bad choices, they have responsibilities and concerns. They are not perfect (well, one of them is, to me) but their popularity does not make them any-less merited of respect.

Some people get lost in the fantasy of watching this profession, and forget that the individual portraying a character is still a living being and is to be respected as such.

In The Company of Dignity

Recently, professional wrestler & pod-caster supreme, Mr. Colt Cabana released an episode of his podcast ‘Art of Wrestling’ featuring one of my three favorite people & favorite-favorite wrestlers. I finally got to listen to it, and now I’m going to give my invaluable perspective on it.


I’ve been inspired by this individual (his guest) she has been extremely kind to me and forgiven me when I was a different person. After listening to what she has gone through, the trails and adversity she’s had to face and how she has dealt with it all: I now know why The Creator brought her to my attention nearly five years ago. Let’s just say that we have more in common than I thought. She has this humility and integrity that I don’t see so often, she and the other two who I hope will be interviewed by Mr. C. someday.

To face such ignorance from people that don’t even know her, and so much aspersion from people who’ve never even met her, and still maintain this dignity and maturity that she does: is nothing short of inspiring. She doesn’t know it, but she has inspired me to being more mature & less disagreeable. She’s been a real blessing, as the others have but with her there’s this commonality that exists.


Please check out this episode of ‘Art of Wrestling’ so far it is my favorite since Mr. Punk’s first sit-down. Major props to this lady, this wonderful spirit enclosed in an amazing body (hope that didn’t sound creeptacular) and my endless respect.

Art of Wrestling: Episode 338

Selective Justice Waning

Phillip Defranco’s Video on the Controversy

Recently there have been some negative comments made towards one of the stars in the new ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. Ms. Jones has been the victim of racially disparaging remarks on social media, and has garnered an reprehension to a well known columnist who is accused of instructions gating the verbal attacks.

Mr. Yiannopolous has been banned from a popular social media site after having exchanged a brief verbal interaction with Ms. Jones. Mr. Yiannopolous did not use any racially insensitive language, nor did he cast any severe aspersions on Ms. Jones.
His words were a critique of her mild spelling error in a comment where she attempted to asperse him and his profession. Neither threw any major insults toward each other. This is were their interaction ended.

Afterward, multiple individuals made racist and crude comments to Ms. Jones. This prompted her to comment about leaving and also drew the attention of an authority on this particular site. But here’s something illogical about this situation: Mr. Yiannopolous was banned, but the people who actually made the racist disparaging comments are still active.

1. Why didn’t the authoritarians of the site ban the specific individuals who sent the racist comments to Ms. Jones?

2. Why was Mr. Yiannopolous banned when he didn’t actually violate any community guidelines of the site? He had a brief argument with Ms. Jones, but the people who made racist comments actually bullied her with asperses.

3. Why would the site overlook the hundreds of other reports on Death Threats, Indecent Exposure, and Targeted Harassment to other private citizens, but then immediately take action on behalf of a Public Figure?

Ms. Jones is the direct victim here, she was targeted by numerous attackers who spake words that were a clear violation of community guide lines. And it could’ve ended there, but the site decided to choose a “fall guy” who did not have anything to do with the attacks she received.

To Ms. Jones I say this: You and your work are appreciated by many, and although there are mean-spirited disparagers out there you are very much appreciated and beloved. Some people (Male, and Female) are cruel and they feed on torment. I am so sorry that you had to experience this.

Fanaticism Aspiring Decadence

Some fans only like an individual because they stimulate an angst in them. And some just want attention from an individual who’s more popular than they are. This may be the reason behind some fans who constantly Tweet and Tag popular individuals.

I use the word maybe, because some individuals don’t get to see what is shared with them, so they end up missing it and the fan doesn’t get a reaction, so they send it again.
But then there are the more worrisome Fans who think they are being ignored by said individual, forgetting how cluttered the individual’s Notifications may be. It is important to avoid the sport of Conclusion Jumping. Sometimes we go for the gold.

This is sometimes presumed by Fans because they will see other fans who make multiple tweets daily, receive an acknowledgment of some sort. This can leave the Fan to assume that their share was seen, but not well received.

Then here are those fans who are easily disconcerted and will began disparaging, or heckling, the individual if they are displeased. These are the fans who aren’t truly admiring of the individual, but are instead only amused by a particular aspect of that individual.

Let’s use an example of Gaming: There are Gamers who play multiple types of video games, and then there are people who just play one type of game.

There are Fans who love the individual, even that which they do not know of the individual personally, but then there are some fans who only like the way they look or the persona which they portray. That goes for both Male, and Female fans.

Some guys only watch for the purpose of ogling, and some girls only watch for the purpose of vicariously obsessing over that individual.
Some guys only watch for the purpose of vicariously obsessing over the individual, and some girls only watch for the purpose of ogling the individual. Then some of us just watch it because we love it to life.

This being their choice, it is still a different motive behind their fanaticism and the others who watch with respect, admiration, and reverence. And yes, one type of Fan can be better than another type of fan.

Usually the Fan who truly respects an individual, will not turn on them for any reason. They will not heckle and lambast the individual for making a career change, or some type of persona alteration. Some Fans are more than fanatics, some are also admirers.

As We Forgive Those

Today I saw a Meme, and it immediately inspired me to write this. Someone I adore, and wish I had as a friend once said “I’m all but ashamed of my faith.”

I couldn’t agree with her more. So although I do not feel shame after reading this Meme, I do feel the need to speak (type) on it.

  

Here are just some of the problems with this Meme.

1. The Christian doctrine teaches that “God” forgives us for our sin, even those which are natural (like lust, and anger) and he also forgives us for being inquisitive enough to question what Man (the author of religion) has told us. 

So if “God” condemned them for having an interest in sex, and for not subscribing to a particular religious denomination, then said condemnation would go against the very teachings of that God’s sun: specifically the part which says “no condemnation”

2. The person who wrote the caption in this Meme (and those who agree with it) did not personally know Mr. Nelson, nor Mr. Jackson, and therefore all of their claims are mere speculation.

As a result of being completely ignorant of these gentlemen personally, they also don’t know what is in the hearts of each individual. Something that many believers use to justify their willful disobedience of their God’s laws.

So, if those disobedient Christians are safe from damnation because of “grace and mercy” then why aren’t these two men? It is as if your sin isn’t considered as damning as theirs.
Which reminds me of the quote “Sin, is sin.” as to say that it is all considered of the same level of severity. Which is odd because logically a torturer should be considered more harmful than a person who believed in a different religion.

3. Anyone who condemns these men (by making, posting, or agreeing with a Meme like this) in their heart has already condemned their fellow Man. And has failed to forgive others, as God has forgiven them.

So, by all definitions you would be a hypocrite and a condemning person who failed to show the same mercy and forgiveness that you say is shown to you. If you’re not perfect, then why were either of those two supposed to be?

The Cry of Stone Casters

I’ve been a on Social Media for a little more than seven years now. And in that time I have encountered the type of behavior that I thought I left behind in Elementary School. People being as brazenly-crass & disrespectful as undisciplined, and unruly children.

Recently I have virtually met some people whom I have developed quite a significant respect-for, and admiration-of. And although these people are considered to be “public figures” a term which people misinterpret often, they are still individuals with rights to respect and privacy.

But unfortunately there are some people in CyberSpace who lack integrity, humility, respect, and validation. These particular people spend their time and efforts sucking the energy out of others, and it is no coincidence that their common targets are always people of exceptional popularity.

These Energy Vampires if you will, are constantly speaking ill of popular people, but all of them are quickly offended when corrected by others.

What does it say about a person who has to constantly cast aspersions on others? What does it say about someone who has to insult others? Is it a feeling of self depreciation? Is it a feeling of uselessness and irrelevance? I’ve noticed that these types are always conceded and very full of haughtiness. Which comes as no surprise, if they would so expressively degrade others who are more acknowledged than they.

These types of people are a hindrance to the Social Evolution of this society, they keep many held back with their selfishness and disrespect. They deceive the current generation by making them think this type of behavior is okay, and simply a “freedom of expression”

These types of people should not be allowed to thrive, they are bullies in the purest sense of the term and must be made to suffer that which they have caused others to. If we are going to progress as an ever technologically-awakening Society, then these bullies have got to be weeded out and disabled.

If you don’t care for someone, theim being a celebrity or popularized does not give you the obligation to insult them. You can dislike someone without publicly disparaging them, and to their employer no less. Meanwhile, hiding behind an Avatar and Screen Name so that your employer, assuming that you do work, isn’t privy to your delinquency.
