http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?t=343570 Daylily And Colchicine, I was thinking the other day of just how much the doll hobby has changed as its grown. As a community, DoA is pretty much unrecognizable from what it was 4 years ago... and the social expectations are just so extremely different now.
The shift is noticeable everywhere, but it's really noticeable in debate threads. I am really incredibly skeeved out by a portion of the population that treats DoA Debate threads as a means to come to an agreement on how we should all think or feel about a topic. This seriously creeps me out. I REALLY balk at the idea of homogenized thought. If I am having a debate with someone, I am doing so to share my views and to see the other side. I am not trying to meld the sides. I love people with strong opinions even if they are different from mine... and while I would love to bring someone over to my side through a good argument, it's not the point. I love when people hold to their guns, as long as they're not making ad hominem attacks, 100mg Daylily And Colchicine.
This thread is a bit annoying in that regard. People who don't like Chinese dolls are giving their reasons that have nothing to do with the owners - quality, bootlegging histories, blunt-force marketing, aesthetic. The opposite side is coming back by saying that the people who don't like dolls are racist, need to think they're better than other people, etc. One side is talking about dolls, Daylily And Colchicine us, the other is talking about people.... and the thread has now reached the point where the people who can actually answer the question ("Why do people dislike Chinese dolls?") have left, and the remainder of the thread will pretty much be a circlejerk about how great Chinese dolls are, Daylily And Colchicine.
Someone in the thread said that there was no point in debating with people who had already made up their minds. I'd argue the opposite and say that there is no point in debating with people who have no opinions. For fuck's sake, have an opinion or just shut up. There are few things worse than people who post "Well, people can do whatever they want!" Of course they can, you asshat. What, someone on the internet is going to drive to their house and make them stop.
To go back to what I was saying, I feel like people on DoA expect to just instantly adored regardless of how little they network and make friends, Daylily And Colchicine mexico, how little they beautify their dolls, and how carelessly they photograph their dolls. In the name of "fairness." No, it's like anything else - your work for your good things. A lot of the people who take good photos or get a fan following put a lot of thought and effort it. It's like real life. People just expect things to be given to them, as though they are entitled to them. Attention, affection, physical items. I received maybe ONE "Thank you" from prize winners in the full month of DoA contests... 50mg Daylily And Colchicine, I don't think I even received PMs from most of the big prize winners (people who got dolls or other big ticket items) acknowledging that the items had been received.
Though I think it's actually a social thing, because I see this attitude in the New Generation in general. Daylily And Colchicine, -_-; Fairness through levelling the playing field in a Harrison Bergeron sort of way.
I guess I just picture a future of people who are all soft and round and generally agreeable, but completely uninspired, lazy, and entitled. A world-wide, opinionless insincere daisychain that doesn't.., 10mg Daylily And Colchicine. I don't know. Doesn't think. It totally creeps me out.
(Man, I am getting crotchity in my old age. Damn kids get off my lawn.).
