I’ll admit that I bought it for quite some time. I swallowed that you could believe in infanticide, forced abortion, handshake rape, and killing pregnant women and children lest they “steal” money via child support.* I swallowed those things because they are nutty, stupid, and extreme, but somehow still something that a nutty, stupid, and extreme person might believe.
Until today, and these gems:
In any case, I shouldn’t be pitting you. I should be thanking you for turning out to be just a random liar and troll rather than the sociopathic monster you appeared to be before. But I fell for it, so now I’m all bitter and stuff.
*Cites available upon request once I get to a computer with an internet connection that isn’t the equivalent of Morse code sent via coconut, though if you missed these gems you should just consider yourself blessed by some deity, you lucky bastard (therefore vampire).
I can’t speak to ZPG Zealot’s sincerity, but I can tell you that it is or was a real belief that illegitimate children would become vampires. So it isn’t unbelievable that her grandparents would believe that.
Yeah, I know I’m gonna get flamed for this, but your two examples are not all that bad. The grandparents probably didn’t really believe that bastards must become vampires, but used that story to make sure their kids didn’t create any. And putting child support for unwanted children on par with 9/11 is hyperbole but could easily be merely an exaggeration to show how much she really hates it.
Now, the rest of those sound pretty bad on the surface, but if your examples are equally as weak, ZPG Zealot probably isn’t actually a troll.
Actually, I’d say it starts just a few posts further up, at #39. The whole thing was prompted by her saying, “One thing I’ve noticed rumors of rapes and sexual violence always surface about the ones that stick out their hands automatically to women versus the men who wait for a women to offer contact.”
