Rage and insults over a person asking a fairly innocuous question about avatars. LOL
Hashtag first world problems just reached epic new levels.
Why become indignant about something so benign? It's a personal choice to have one or to even see them at all. IMO they are a mindless way to give
others a quick reference of the sort of things a person is interested in. I like The Walking Dead, that's that. I've also used Invader Zim, Tyrion
Lannister, Lemmy Kilminster, and some abstract / angry art for avatars in the past. In fact there is still at least one person who calls me out every
few months, begging me to bring Zim back.
Oh the dark and unspeakable nefariousness at play here...
Oh and the unicorn puking rainbows makes perfect sense to me. I would guess it's a statement about life and how we raise our kids on a steady diet of
BS idealisms about how everyone is a winner and everyone matters... right before we spit them into a world populated by predators that is far more
grind than glory.
The day we find out that Santa does exist... but that he is really US and that we need to get a second job so that we, for reasons we don't even
understand, can tell our own kids the same damned lies and try to hide the painful truth of it all from them for as long as the world lets us.
Puking unicorns embodies that reality brilliantly.
