I wrote a take on phobias for Halloween, and it was pretty well received, but some people were afraid of the pictures that I attached to the take. One of my friends even in added me temporarily for the clown picture that I added on it. I feel really bad for writing it now because I ended up scaring people... :( Should I disvow it and forget about it?
wtf? What is it with this clown fear trend. Like... at first i thought it was just a joke to symbolize peoples hate for clowns, but how does a picture of a clown make you hyperventilate, unless you had some sort or ridiculously traumatic experience with one where one tried to like fondle you while you were 6 or something. I honestly fear for some people on this site. Like... it just screams oversheltered. I can only image what would happen if some people landed on places like 4chan or certain sections of reddit. This world will not be kind to you the moment you leave your prism man.
It was scary for me because you showed pictures and as I read it I saw my phobia and it made me feel weird. Then you responded to my comment and I had to scroll down and see it again and again. I love the take though. It was a good one :)
Not scary, but I've been sick of seeing its pictures displayed off to the side of my page, I hate the way the internet throws horror stuff around when this time of year comes around, tumblr does the same thing with forced horror movie ads and gifs, I don't mind it but I'd really prefer not to see things like that clown picture if I don't have to.
