So, these 12-year old Slenderman stabbing girls are not what truly pisses me off...

Rate this Entry
What pisses me off are all these people like Nancy Grace, and Dr. Drew, and Jane Velez-Mitchell trying to analyze all this and act like they know what they're talking about, when they clearly don't.

They don't know what Creepypasta is. They don't know what Slenderman is. I don't even think they can tell what memes are. So how do they think their gonna understand this and how it happened? Or worse, how are they gonna try to explain this to their viewers?

Seriously, I've been watching them spout this nonsense for the past two days saying "Oh well, I read such-and-such when I was a kid and it didn't make me want to kill anyone!" or "She liked creepy stuff! Skulls and goth were warning signs for a 12-year-old girl!" and even, "They like Death Metal! Death Metal influenced them!"

Or my personal favorite: "MENTAL ILLNESS!!11!!!1!"

Why are they so damn quick to jump to mental illness on stuff like this? And what's worse is they try to apply science and reasoning to this.

"Oh, well she said she heard this Slenderman talking to her and she was having delusions and seeing things. And delusions are a sign of MENTAL ILLNESS!!!!111!!1!"

I mean, for Pete's sake. They weren't mentally ill. Hell, the knew exactly what they were doing. They were stupid. People, who probably shouldn't be on the internet to begin with, read these Creepypastas and play Slendy over and over and start to take it way too seriously and believe it. Combine that with the mentality of a 12-year-old brat and parents who clearly don't pay attention to what their kids do on the internet (and off, for that matter), and this is what we get.

Honestly...mental illness is not the reasoning for everything. What's the difference between this and a bunch of retards screaming that Michael Jackson's sudden death was the result of a Death Note? Are they mentally ill? No. Are they taking their fanaticism to far? Absolutely. Just like these girls.

And just one more thing: What the fu*k were there girls reading? I'm no Slender expert, but I have certainly never heard of a Slenderman Mansion or having to kill someone to go find it. Or that BS about becoming proteges of Slenderman. This only proves even more that these parents should have known what their kids were looking at.

I'm just honestly getting sick of this "mental illness" excuse for every bad thing that happens these days.

On the brighter side of things, I'm glad the little girl survived and is recovering. Prayerfully, she makes a full recovery.

    Whenever someone commits an atrocity you can be sure that others will psychoanalyze that person or try and use their hobbies/interests to fuel their generalizations. Often it's more about feeding their own egos and agendas rather than having any sincere interest in getting to the root of the issue. The media are the biggest whores when it comes to exploiting tragedy, the only difference is they mostly do it for the ratings. But we are partly to blame as a society for tuning into their excessive coverage of every maniac who does something horrible.

    EDIT: I realize finding out a motive is important, but most people go overboard when they try and get into the mind of the perpetrator. Sometimes you just gotta call a spade a spade i.e a murderer a murderer.

    You're absolutely right. In thinking about it, that makes perfect sense regarding the over-analyzation. I watched these guys speculate for 2-3 days over what caused the Solange "attack" on Jay-Z and it was all bullcrap about her being jealous of Beyonce's success of sh*t along those lines. Then it comes out what (supposedly) actually happened and these guys look like plain morons.

    I agree completely~
