Perhaps it is best if things aren’t brought to light but sometimes, resurfacing things from the shadows are always your best bet.
I didn’t really wish to talk about this but if it involved any of us and anything we’re doing then that means it becomes our business. Whether we choose to get involved or not doesn’t matter. Sitting in silence isn’t exactly what I intend to do especially if they keep calling us names which are unrepresentative of us. Social justice warriors? Unwelcoming to differing opinions? Feminists? We aren’t any of those. If you stop and think even for just one second, you’ll see that they merely are projecting things that they represent. We never shoved any of our beliefs down anyone’s throats, we never let people feel that if you have different opinions of us you will get banished, more so we never stood up for something you can even call, theatrically, evil.
I am not going to say anything they ever said in reference to us as demeaning because that is and won’t ever be the case. To stoop down to their level is something we refuse to do. I’d like to think we hold a higher level of standards, values and rightness of character. I’m not saying we’re better people than anyone or that we have a superiority complex, I simply am saying that we make choices that work for everyone – given that we consult one another before making any decisions, without trampling anyone’s rights and freedoms and seeing everything with level-headedness, objectivity and diplomacy. All of us have compassion, mercy and most of all, a sense of camaraderie. We have hearts. We aren’t just a gore site. We aren’t here to spread agenda. We aren’t here to spread lies. We aren’t here to make money out of false claims. We aren’t hypocrites. We don’t say we spread the truth and do otherwise. There are things that we aren’t and things that they are.
We aim to attract like-minded people. People get drawn to things they feel they have a connection with hence, that’s why we have this small community. We are here because there’s a good reason why we do what we do and those reasons, I believe, are both poetic and beautiful: to end the tyranny of the other site, to speak the truth, to let opinions and other forms of speech flow freely, to foster the community we once had free from hidden agenda and free from judgement because your opinions are different and, even better, is that we are all free from ‘her’. I think the last part is the most beautiful reason why we exist. They are intimidated by those reasons, that’s why they pulled out their last card – the sudden resurrection of their Supreme Leader. He suddenly showed his head amidst the fiasco between this website and theirs. Isn’t it rather ‘conincidental’ that he chose to keep his silence until we eventually crawled out of the woodwork and all of you guys are coming in (thanks for all the support, by the way)? Isn’t it also rather ‘conincidental’ that we had almost 4,700 attempts to take down the website despite our rather immensely fresh existence? The reason is blatant, covert and bitch-slapped in the face. We aren’t even employing intimidation tactics; we simply just exist.
There’s a few things I know in this two decades of existence that I am living: those with weak foundations are doomed to shatter. Like a straw house blown by a strong wind, what they built would not last when threatened even by the littlest amount of force directed at them. All we did is build riGOREmortis yet they placed all their bets on trying to shut us down and bringing ‘him’ out of the shadows as a publicity stunt. We’re standing strong even if we’re very new in the gore game and they’ve been around the internet for eight years. Putting it figuratively, they are a mansion built with sand and we are a small house built with concrete.
Now the title seems incredibly befitting, don’t you think?
