That is exactly the type of mentality I am talking about!
If someone is scared, why crack jokes? If this really happened in such a terrifying way to this person, what gives you the justification to joke?
Train wrecks, murders, and scared people are NOT FUNNY. Imagine how you would feel, if this really were an Xfiles type situation and something
horrific happens after you cracked a joke about it. How could you justify your actions then? You couldn't.
Try showing honest compassion and a willingness to listen, regardless of how strange or unusual the situation is. A portion of sound men and women
believe that they have been raped and experimented upon by ETs and people will laugh at them. Why? Because it didn't happen to them and they are not
suffering by watching their capable mother or sister completely break down due to a seemingly impossible situation.
Take some more drugs they will say, or stop drinking. Why not be humane instead? If you honestly can't see the harm in your joking when someone is
posting for help and insight, then you won't understand why what you did is wrong.
Did it happen? It doesn't matter if the person is terrified due to an experience that can be rationally explained. Fear makes a bad situation into a
nightmare, and then in trying to get help, childish comments make it even worse.
This is not a video game! People suffer everyday, and until more people can lift this electronic veil, many people will suffer not only due to this
society, but then they will feel they can't even get help or sympathy.
You gave an excuse for your behavior and every other unconcerned individual on ATS engaging in this socially destructive behavior, I don't buy it.
When all else fades away there will only be people, or their memories. We can do better. Really.
