I just became aware of the latest scandal involving an internet bigwig. Some people who used to hang out with this dude ALL THE TIME are now saying “I knew he was a creep for a long time” and/or “I heard horrific rumors about him for a long time”.
I find this situation funny, yet educational, for a few reasons.

In a way, I agreed with her.
In a way, I didn’t.
Unfortunately, in life, sometimes the facts of the matter are jarring, hard to hear, and/or unpleasant to consider. This doesn’t make any of these facts less true. What you feel about them doesn’t matter at all. It doesn’t change the situation. Continue reading “Who’s Harsher, Who’s Harsh?”
