Noobs of the internet

So.. if you haven't heard, there is a new scandal on the internet.. regarding a girl with down syndrome.
Here's the link

Isn't it just wonderful ? "Trollers !" "They attack innocent people ! We must put them in jail !"
I call horseshit on everything presented there. STOP
I am willing to back myself up with actual arguments against this stupid propaganda.

First of all.. the internet was to be a place of freedom. A place where nobody knows who anyone is, but they exchange ideas and/or make fun of each other. At least the interactive part of it was this way.
Now, a new generation is experiencing the internet. AND THEY'RE DOING IT WRONG !

You don't know what I'm talking about ? Have you seen this trailer ? You have to watch it for me to make a point.
It is an excellent example of how "the noobs of the internet" as I like to call them, go out there like gazelles in the jungle, revealing every aspect of their lives on facebook, twitter, and other websites, giving trolls, (who are smart enough to actually remain anonymous) the opportunity to BASH THE LIVING FUCK OUT OF THEM.
Then they bitch about it as if it's the internet's fault. Trolling on the internet has existed ever since the internet was FUCKING. MADE !

Returning to the girl with down syndrome, I agree that this is a different case, because that photo of her wasn't meant to be on the internet, I guess, and it was actually passed around like a well made joint. Yea that's right ! That "potato" meme was around, for literally years now ! And who actually complained ? No one. The funny thing about this drama (yes, there is a funny thing) is that if that girl hadn't found out about the picture of her young self being a meme, it would still circulate through the internet, and no one would even bother to think anything of it.

Let me explain a very simple concept, to a bunch of grown "mature" people who actually have a well payed job, talking on the news, about topics they refuse to understand..  It's a very easy-to-grasp concept :
Someone's personal definition, is different than an image of that person, years ago, that is actually passed around for the concept of dark humor, and NOT for the mockery of that particular person's identity.

In other words, no one EVER stopped to think : Hey, this is a real girl. I should not make fun of her.
Know why ? Because they were disconnected !!! From her actual identity. All they saw was a funny picture !

How is this a difficult to understand concept ?! The thing that you people are REALLY against, is the dark humor ! The fact that healthy people mock those with disabilities, bother you. And I agree, they are insensitive ! But that's because they have no empathy of the situation. And they have no empathy of it because they are unaware of how life is, struggling with that certain disability ! Once you understand how people think, it's much easier to solve problems. But when news reporters simply refuse to see the other perspective, they fail as actual thinking beings. The only word left to describe them is "idiots".
Even morally, they fail because let me ask you this.. news reporters. Why is it that you are offended when a simple act of ignorance occurs, on the internet, nonetheless, where everything is abstract and no real connection happens between people, but are not offended of the following things :
Death Penalty
Starving poor people

It seems like you people ignore most of the horrible stuff out there, and instead, focus on ridiculous nonsense like trolling on the fucking internet, and make retarded movies such as Cyberbully. A movie built on a narrow perspective, false concepts, and a lot of stupid propaganda.

There isn't much more to say, but for my final point, I would just like to leave this here, which is kind of a quote of mine, that fits perfectly here :
You complain about monsters but no one would be a monster, if our society, was not a society of monsters.

*edit* if you were offended, when I used the word "retarded" earlier, it is because you STILL don't understand my point here. I can use the word "retarded" as a negative thing, without thinking of the actual people that are retarded ! I can still feel bad for them, AND use this word in a negative way because I'm using my god damn brain ! I realize that in order to have an impact, I must use certain words. Does that mean I am an insensitive jerk ? Of course not ! It's like using "gay" in a negative way. I just use it for the negative reputation it has, and not think about people that are actually homosexuals, as being immoral. Please, people. Try to wrap your mind around this ! Otherwise you will get bogged down in semantics and will be fooled by your own fucking language !
