This started when I posted to a so-called mental health 'support' group about how it makes me feel weird when older men hit on me. I am not talking about the late 20s or early 30s etc. I was talking about men who appear to be 50-60 years old. I did mention these men should be pedos HOWEVER, I was talking about more extreme cases and NOT my case. Some people took my statues out of context and grabbed their pitchforks and tiki torches without a second thought.
People started bullying me, child shaming me. Just being horrible. I had no idea why people were so angry. If they needed more information regarding my post, they could have simply asked for more information. I guess bullying was 'more fun' for them. Even if my status was wrong, those grown-ass adults think bullying someone makes them better. If anyone is the child it's them. 2 wrongs don't make a right.
People were saying 'age is a number.' I would apply this to you being 18 and your partner is 24/25/26. You're 25 and your partner is 30. You're 30 and your S/O is 40. THAT is where I see age is a number. A 60-year-old creep hitting on a 20 something-year-old is out of bounds, period. These were WOMEN who bullied out of that group, there were some men but most of them were ladies. They should be ashamed of themselves. If they wouldn't want their son/daughter being hit on by older people what made them think I wanted that? They probably just saw the word 'pedophile' and lost their shit without asking questions if they didn't understand.
I left that sorry excuse for a group. Don't call yourself a mental health page if that's how you act over a Facebook Statues.
If they felt the post could have been written better, they could have left constructive advice rather than being straight-up bullies. They like to advocate for mental health and suicide but didn't think about that before acting the way that they did.
I can't be in a group that supports bullying. If someone is wrong, guild them to do better not treat them like their less than for making a mistake.
I could have blocked them but it was just too many people attacking me.
