*Ok, so let me just preface this by saying that I have absolutely NOTHING againsit gays/lesbians/transgenders. I believe that love is love, no matter what the sexual orientation, and that every person deserves to have equal rights*
With that being said, I’m having issues with somebody on twitter. 5 years ago, in highschool, I was friends with a girl whom I’ll refer to as Trish. She was in a 4 year long relationship with a male. Anyways, I don’t know all the details because I lost touch, but eventually the couple heads to seperate colleges, breaks up, and Trish realizes she’s a lesbian.
Now flash forward to the past couple weeks. Trish finds me on twitter and says hi. I say hi back and that i didn’t realize she had a twitter. She reply’s back that she’s been following me for awhile now. I had no idea, so I immideatly started ‘following’ her as well.
That’s where things start making me uncomfortable. Every single day for two weeks now, my news feed has been filled with the most vile, and disgusting tweets. Here’s a couple examples:
‘So this n*gga goes…do u still eat p*ssy? So I go…n*gga, is water still wet? Yea…well so is the p*ssy! lls’
‘What part of I EAT THE P*SSY do u not understand. #dismissed and tell ur sis come holla at me lol’
Those are just two small examples. Now, I would be uncomfortable if these tweets implied the same thing about a penis..so the issue isn’t about her being a lesbian and talking about eating p*ssy. It’s about the fact that I’m really not trying to hear/see all about her or anyone elses sex life. I’m a prude damnit!
She only has a couple followers, and she obviously keeps tabs on them because she implied that she knew I wasn’t one of them before. She’d obviously notice if I stopped following her. I know this is stupid. Should I just unfollow her? Or just suck it up and skim over her 30 posts a day? I don’t want to have hurt her feelings or have bad blood between us because i really do like her. On the other hand I haven’t seen or talked (with the exception of the occasional facebook wall post) in 5 years…does it even matter?
She’s the kind of person to say something, so I know she’ll confront me if I unfollow her. What should I say if thats what I do? Without hurting her feelings? Play dumb? Tell her her posts make me uncomfortable? I know this is stupid, but it’s been really bothering me lately and the posts are getting out of hand. What do you think hive?
ps. twitter isn’t like facebook. I don’t think you can just ‘hide’ someone and stop seeing their posts…unless I’m wrong and you can I just don’t know how?
