I’m trying very hard to think of one but all the ones I’m coming up with are subjective?

Lotta people saying “X is not scary” and like… “scary” is by definition psychological and therefore extremely individual, I don’t think The Exorcist is scary but I get why people do
I’m not good at shit like this because I’m at a point, in 2021, where I care way fucking less about whether something is “good” and way more about whether I enjoy it
And the thing about horror is that it’s so primal that it’s almost impossible to put in a box of objective evaluation, that’s part of why I love it
My Controversial Horror Opinion is that we’re probably a doomed species clinging to a dying ecosystem so you should consume the content you like

Every now and then it’s good for my mental health to take a few minutes and watch this a couple times
“They should have had regular orchestral music for this scene” remains probably the most spectacularly terrible take I’ve ever seen on this site
Oh sure, other takes have been more offensive, more hurtful. More racist, more transphobic, more everything evil and cruel. But I don’t think I’ve seen another so purely and uncomplicatedly terrible.

Every now and then I read something and think back on my Lutheran Vacation Bible School days with my mom in charge of our truly amazing puppet shows, and fruit punch and snacks in the basement, and I reflect on just how *radical* the differences between Christian sects can be
Radical in multiple senses

A lot about my childhood was messed up—some of it for reasons that were really no one’s fault—but I genuinely feel that I majorly lucked out in the religion department
I mean, they never put us through any form of evangelism training either, or at least if they did it was so lackadaisical that it made absolutely no impression on me

This game is wildly fantastic polygon.com/22580075/love-…
I mean… it’s actually kind of Deep?? They came out and explained that styling contests LITERALLY TAKE PLACE IN THE SPIRIT WORLD and that’s how they work? The story is exploring war trauma and child abuse? Literally there have been parts so far where I gasped?
It’s a darker story, too. The whole blood curse thing is apparently gone so now people can get hurt! Badly!!

THE GAME STARTS WITH MIRALAND BEING DESTROYED and then you have to travel back in time to discover why it happened and how to stop it

If someone in my community is an abuser, I obviously want to know about it, especially since I tend to not be connected to whisper networks and I also tend to be a bit oblivious. But there’s a difference between that and what this tweet is talking about.
Also I may very well KNOW about all said Problematic things, but I’d like to mention that I enjoy something they did without having to include a fucking disclaimer every time

I am accumulating ever deeper and deeper feelings of existential horror and disgust for anyone who looks around at everything and says “yeah, on the whole this all seems okay”.
And I’m finding “people are busy and don’t pay much attention to anything outside their immediate orbit” a less and less compelling excuse.
I have an awful feeling that 2022 and 2024 are going to absolutely break me as a person.

In better news, Husband told me the other day that the novella draft contains multiple scenes he considers too upsetting, so I feel pretty good about that
I love him dearly, I hope he understands that
Literally I grinned and rubbed my fingertips together
