I feel so very distant from my first 250 pages. It feels like a lifetime ago. My brain has been so flooded with horror, negativity, depression, and bleakness since the beginning of the year it's been hard to refocus on something so ... irrelevant.

@arthurpendragon How did you even find such an account? Were they trolling your posts or something?

@arthurpendragon It's weird for some people to imagine I guess. A LARGE portion of the population exists solely for that purpose ... they're in the news daily especially lately. They want to crush others and take away hope and joy and, since I assume they're all functioning psychotics, they get tons of pleasure from it. You may be very insulated from it though ... which is why you're surprised. Exposing your talent and passion online is like ringing the dinner bell for these people.

@arthurpendragon I'm of the very UNPOPULAR opinion that people, at their core, are pretty horrendous and just need a reason to express it. The behavior you describe doesn't surprise me at all. I'm more surprised they decided to delete it honestly.

On Rowling ... 

I actually do appreciate that she finally penned some long essay and explained and expressed herself beyond just all the random shitty tweets she's been throwing out. It takes a lot of strength to stand up and beat your chest and declare your stance, your beliefs, your understandings to a mob of people that are ready to stone you. At least she's made it clear exactly where she stands and why ... at least she's shown the full extent of her psychology on the matter.

... it shows me she needs a lot of help in dealing with these issues she has ... that there is a lot of deep emotion and psychology behind this hill she chooses to die on ...

On Rowling ... 

Something I remember clearly getting to know him was more about what these people represented to him ... what their existence meant to him and how it altered his view of what he thought the world was or should be ... THAT was very telling and I was reminded of that reading JKR's essay. It came through so clearly in how personal she made it ... how she tied so much of it to her own experiences as a woman ... how she says it invalidates her ENTIRE LIFE as a woman ...
