Remember to always keep in touch with each other on other platforms. Never make this environment your only means of contact with those you care about within the community.
And never trust your friends in the community enough to pass on your personal information. There are people with bad intentions everywhere. And as the sentence already said: Better safe than sorry.
@sandminerva @PaperGal @Jasmine I think it depends on the context, really. Even with therapy, it won't always cure the traumatic response. "DNI X" isn't always just for their benefit, but sometimes for yours as well - they may be afraid they will be triggered and lash out at you accidentally, for example.
Also, it may be that they can interact with MAPs but due to their trauma it's really uncomfortabel/harmful to them mentally, so even though they have no issue with MAPs as a whole, they want a safe space where they won't feel those feelings. And that's valid.
@Jasmine Well I'm not sure what are all the things people say DNI about, but if it's like “DNI MAPs” or something then that's prejudiced and doesn't deserve to be respected.
@WaterBaron map: csa is bad, let's not trivialise it. I've been a victim of csam and so I am kinda sensitive about....
Anti: kiddy diddly doo! You fucked kids today? Lololol you're sooo icky and yucky. I bet you're thinking of child cunny rn!!! Hey look at this link to child porn! Gross right?
Translation of antis
- If you are sad and suicidal because someone hurt your friend so much that they become homeless, this is "proof" that you are "codependent" for that person and not that you are sad for your friend.
Learn from Kearee:
If you feel bad about what someone is doing to your friends, this is grooming and wrong. You are forbidden to feel bad because of your friends now. Which makes the whole anti community... fall apart. Because you can't even say an "A" about the older members without minor antis come to want to defend them or be sad about what you said. The co-dependency that exists between minor antis and adult antis is more than evident.
In this case, the minor involved had feelings for the adult person. Imagine if you love someone very much and that person gets hurt, how would you feel? You don't need to be dating (in this case it's not even possible), but you would still feel bad about it.
If I feel horrible when someone hurts a minor I have feelings Can you imagine a minor with feelings for an adult?
Something I’ve noticed is that antis have harassed and spread private information of minor MAPs far more than adult MAPs (Not saying that they should be doing it more to adult MAPs, they shouldn’t be doing it to anyone at all). It’s ironic how they claim that their whole motive is to “protect minors” yet they have endangered many minors instead.
