What the fuck is WRONG with him. ❓❓❓ ❗❗
I also dare say, there isn't really anything too seriously wrong with me, rather, I have been at times wondering and fantasizing a lot and I sometimes felt empty and embarrassed when others did not allow me too. One cinematic trope and theme caused in me a sense of dark and morbid fascination and a forbidden fantasy albeit I did not say I wanted it either however I felt surprised nonetheless and felt compelled to talk about it. Especially since, real life and its harsh truths briefly put aside, the common traditional examples I have been exposed to a lot of tropes in them here and there, and angry discussions online.
And I didn't want to be bombarded with stereotypes either. Given how overall, I AM a nice, law abiding, rule following type of guy who is also in a way sensitive and curious and also into films a lot, including with adult subject matter and certain tropes and scenarios. And one who tries in a way to be like a knowledgeable adult who cares about life a lot. And who has values and interests and emotions too.
But its no big deal at all and yes I know.
I just wanted sometimes people to be nice and calm and to indulge me here and there. And have a better understanding of things including emotionally. And not have anyone FORCE me to do so either.
P.S. That trope in reality was actually like a final straw to my inquiries into understanding OTHER matters of life and LIFE and HUMAN NATURE ITSELF. Including why things are this way, why people do this and that however wrong, why people think like this etc, especially since before, I never really even KNEW all that much about it anyway, and I was trying to get a grip on life and myself in the process. And there was no misogyny, sexism etc and I did not mean it as any kind of insult to real victims or even try to annoy others - even if in last one I have unfortunately succeeded. I was also in the process making a deal with my own soul and conscience even if on a superficial and theoretical level only. :)
Lost Highway (1997) meets Knock Knock (2015) meets "Basic Instinct" (1992) and even sexual stuff in it all was a philosophical metaphor for life and humanity in general, and I hope others understand, sensitivity and official truths surrounding certain matters notwithstanding.share
I prefer TheMan18's meandering musings to the racist, sexist, homophobic and otherwise disparaging remarks toward marginalized groups from users who cannot muster language or ideas beyond their brain-melting social media feedback loop.share
Yeah, we all have our vices too including PREFERRED ones haha. :) Its alright though, even I at some point may eventually stop. :)share
Very well said!share
I can't read him. and I would love to, but it all needs tightened up. writing is rewriting, not "stream of consciousness" spilling.
he SOMETIMES brings up interesting stuff, but it is buried under so many rolls of undefined fat, I have to just look away after a couple sentences, knowing if I don't, I will just get mad about wasting my time trying to read it.
I PM with him pretty often, he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and he freely admits to speaking with a therapist which for lots of people is a really good thing to do…he even admits some of his posts are a bit wild and not easy to decipher.
TheMan is a harmless fellow that just asks more questions than most of us.
I know we don’t get along so well but TheMan is pretty good people, a thoughtful and sensitive sort ✌️
Not fighting words, just my honest take.
I also inadvertently got affected by the fact that all of humanity is apparently caught up in various stereotypes and we have various rules etc, often revelations can be uncomfortable and a little mentally confusing and that in the process we including myself can get a little emotionally conflicted and carried away.
Especially since in my time, a lot of that type of stuff was never even spoken to me about. And for long periods in life, I used to wear rose tingled spectacles. And look at how much controversies also exist in areas of sexuality here and there and even I sometimes struggle, beyond the basics of course, to make heads and tails with it all, including why it happens.
Sometimes I just want to click fingers and put an end to it. But OK I get it it does take time and whatnot. Its just a fact of life folks.
TheMan18 is a philosophical guy who likes to ask lots of questions. Nothing wrong with that. There are several other posters who say and do a lot worse.share
Yeah, and I get carried away at times in the process too.share
Oh, you are just fine Amigo. There are lots of nasty ones here, hell I might be one of them, but you lead with your heart. I really like your ability to question everything, never stop asking questions Buddy…my curse is that I only see black and white…you are just fine.share
Uses 30 words when 5 would have sufficed.
Interacts with others with the authenticity of a robo-call.
Uses language so vague that his point is un-graspable.
Asks questions that turn out to be rhetorical and waits to write the rest of his essay in the same thread (the threads in which he responds to himself are the same as those with participants).
But what is RIGHT with him??
He is gentle.
Gives off a genuine vibe of kindness and innocence.
Has a wealth of movie exposure and knowledge.
One out of ten of his posts are pretty normal and engaging.
Responds to shittyness with kindness and joy.
Has curiosity about greater things in life (as human beings).
I spend half of the time thinking that he is a malfunctioning abandoned AI. I wish no ill on him but I don't read the majority of his posts. I read a few sentences if at all.
You nailed it quite well with your ‘What is right with him’ list.
TheMan is NEVER offensive, he understands that his posts are sometimes a bit confusing and he admits that he seeks professional help every so often.
I find that most endearing, a lot of people I know see a therapist, they don’t share this to anyone but me, I have ‘a vault,’ so if I hear of it it stays with me…I’m a well known no-talker.
I think therapy would be of help
to lots of people, there is no shame in seeking some help.
He's alright I think, he's just very prosaic and very cerebral. As a result, he waffles a bit and doesn't really seem to ever get to posing a question. His topics of choice may not be to your liking, but he's pretty inoffensive overall.share
He's a Ruskie!
