I made this post just yesterday and I've seen it get a lot of "love" from those who follow me and those who don't. It actually scares me and breaks my heart that there are so many who felt anything other than just a simple "Oh, not her again."

Too many people have been the victim of others' judgmental comments, losing muse to be on their accounts because of the reactions they see from others. To that, I say, don't be afraid to force-unfollow, block, or even just mute the ones that are causing you even the slightest unease about your character and your writing.

It's cliche to say that this isn't a popularity contest, but it's true. It isn't. This is Twitter and we should be as free as the next person to express our interests, opinions, and preferences as the next person.

Now, granted, there are exceptions. RPing smut with underaged users a huge NO. Targeted harassment, Pedophilia, and other ILLEGAL actions should never be given the benefit of the doubt.

You can always lock your account up to keep people from seeing what you post, but you shouldn't have to. Except for certain things, you should be free to write what you want and how you want without the fear of people making snide comments about it or bringing you down.

How about we start lifting each other up rather than tearing each other down?
