Anonymous asked you:hey edwin, this girl Fiore @tomlindaddy, the one who tweeted Keith deactivated the account at the time, but has activated again. she is a larry shipper & is young. I don´t have twitter, do you think we could get someone to talk to her? she doesn´t seem remorseful or seems to understand what she did was wrong i think.~~~+~~~SHe understand EXACTLY what she did, and finds it hilarious. Her excuse is that she was bored, and that “how things is done in tha south”.I will attempt to engage with her in the morning, after my tea, when the desire to inflict a horde of demons upon her soul is at it’s lowest ebb.
Fiore shamefully and purposefully offended someone who you have helped and who you have developed a friendship with. You are a better man for even attempting to engage in conversation with her.
She is an ignorant child who hides behind a keyboard and wouldn’t dare to say those words to an adult’s face.
But If I don’t, then who will? This isn’t about me, or even Keith; it’s now about her, and what we have done as a society to fail her so terribly that she and her friends might think this appropriate or funny.
Its not. And I admire you immensely for trying to reason with her.
As a teacher, I deal with this every day. Kids don’t understand that what they say or do online can actually hurt people. The callousness that so many of my students exhibit borders on sociopathic behavior. Teens and pre-teens so want to be noticed — to have thousands of followers on twitter or to be tumblr famous — but don’t realize the correct way to do is by being a kind a decent human being. If a little inappropriateness gets them instant attention, then that is the path they will travel. Personal responsibility is a thing of the past.
