Do people actively look for me just to throw dirt in my face? WTF is this place even about?
@InvaderXan sucks that's happening. You're one of my favourite faces on here, and I have no clue why people would choose to be shitty at you.
@InvaderXan You're amazing and don't deserve that, but I've seen it happen to you time and time again. I have no idea what woodwork they crawl out of, but wherever it is could use a good lit match.
@InvaderXan Frustrating :(
For every such person there must be oodles of nice people who love what you're expressing here! So often I read one of your toots and just keep nodding and smiling. For me, you are definitely one of the people making Mastodon worthwile with what you say.
@InvaderXan well, i, for one, hope you stick around. i like your posts and your vibe, and (not that you asked me but) in solidarity i say screw those people who are messing with you.
@InvaderXan I wish I could tell you to not give up hope. It's honestly difficult (for me, at least) to find good content producers on here. I'm mostly still only reading the people I followed in my first month.
@InvaderXan I'm so sorry about this.
Having you here is the best, you make the Fediverse more beautiful 💚
this was supposed to be a welcoming space, away from the toxic twitters, facebooks and instagrams, and yet I see more and more great folks give up, because their writing about identity and diversity attracts people who feel free to make shitty comments.
I will miss you, and your great food for thought. I learned so much from you!
@InvaderXan It sucks that this is your experience. I've heard the same from a few others, and I just can't comprehend it.
I don't have this experience so it's tough to make any suggestions, offer any advice, or say anything sensible.
But it sucks, and I really, *really* hope it changes.
If you'd like to DM me a pointer to the offending toots then maybe I can comment sensibly, but regardless, I certainly offer my anger on your behalf towards the utter jerks who are out there.
