I'm just so angry and sad right now... I rarely get THIS emotional, but well, look at that. It actually happened.
This is about a friend of mine. Let's call her Ginny, (since she really likes guinea pigs). You don't know her, but
you don't have to. Just picture the kindest, purest person in the world. Do it. That's her you see. Right there, with the wavy red hair and doe eyes. She's this un-believably sweet person that you WISH people could be, but that you don't really think can exist in real life. She sings in the church choir.
She loves knitting and baking. And making dresses. She recently got a job at a home for old folks, and she was so happy over it... Gosh, I'm shaking as I'm writing this... She also loves voice acting.
And she is GOOD at it. Of all my aspiring voice actor buddies, I always thought that she'd be one of the first ones to actually land a job in that industry. ...But she has a pretty low self esteem. This is the kind of girl that apologizes if she thinks that she's breathing too much of your oxygen. Or if she think that she's taking up the timeline on Twitter, just because she wanted to share a photo of some adorable mini-cookies she had baked. Shaped like stars... This is why I feel
so damn proud every time she decides to share something she's made on Youtube. She puts so much HEART into everything she does and she has become more and more confident over the things she makes.
...So try to imagine her feeling when she wakes up one morning and finds that ALL
of those videos suddenly have a majority of dislikes. I have a pretty good
idea of who is behind it, but I'm leaving it out. The thing is that when your videos only have a few hundred views, a dozen dislikes from nowhere will easily suffocate the few likes you had actually received. I feel utterly powerless.
It's not against any rules to dislikes videos, but... I just find it nauseating that some people find pleasure in doing something like this. And to her! Of all people, why did they have to pick on HER?! To sit down and leave dislikes with multiple accounts on ALL her videos- That takes effort. And that's why I find this so repulsive. Me and my friends have
tried our best to leave as many likes as we can on her videos, to cheer her up. To bombard her with love and positivity instead. There are not enough of us to diminish the dislikes, but still. That's today's lesson in
internet cruelty. Thank you if you've read this far. I don't know what I wanted to achieve here, I just needed to express myself. Be nice to each other, okay? And if you meet more people out there like Ginny, please protect them. They are a rare species because of poaching. This is her
youtube channel: www.youtube.com/user/MissMarsv…
Her videos are mostly in Swedish, and she doesn't have a lot of them. But the few she has are REALLY good. Have a look and you'll see.
...And if you can, please give her a like.
