Recently, I've been noticing a lot of creeps coming out of the woodwork and crawling out from underneath long-undisturbed rocks. It pisses me off. I've been trying not to rant on other people's threads, so I'm doing it here, in my own corner of the intarwebs.

When you're a creep, you come across as being creepy/stalkerish/offensive/aggressive/boorish/frightening. When you're a creep on social media, you run the risk of being unfollowed, ignored, blocked, reported, and/or becoming the subject of a report to local law enforcement. If that's what you want, keep doing what you're doing.

If a someone posts a photo and you think they look great, tell them so. Public selfies are NOT* an invitation for you to comment that you'd like to rape them, undress them, dive into their crotch, or spout some other sexual/violent innuendo. What the actual hell is WRONG with you people?! You know better than that.

If you want to be perceived as a considerate, decent, attractive human being, you could probably benefit from reading through two sites:

1. Dr. Nerdlove's Don't Be A Creeper http://www.doctornerdlove.com/2011/12/dont-be-a-creeper/all/1/

2. John Scalzi's Incomplete Guide to Not Creeping http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/08/09/an-incomplete-guide-to-not-creeping/

Some key points from these two that apply particularly to online interactions:

"Women have to gauge every interaction with men, especially men they don’t know, on whether or not he presents a threat to her. This is the unspoken subtext for every time a guy talks to a girl, sends a Facebook friend request or asks her out." (Dr. Nerdlove, On Male Privilege and Being Creepy)

"Women already have to fear for their safety on a daily basis… the last thing you need to do is remind her that, oh yes, you represent a potential threat to her. This means that there are certain jokes that you just shouldn’t make. Jokes about rape, abduction, physical assault or murder are off the table. Period. Too many women have experienced physical or sexual threats and violence for you to jokingly suggest that you might kidnap or rape her." (Dr. Nerdlove, Watch Your Fucking Language)

"Now, it’s possible you may also be socially awkward, or have trouble reading other people’s emotions or intentions, or whatever. This is your own problem to solve, not anyone else’s. It is not an excuse or justification to creep on other people." (John Scalzi)

"Acknowledge that other people do not exist just for your amusement/interest/desire/use." (John Scalzi)

" If you can’t make a conversation without trying to shoehorn suggestive or sexually-related topics into the mix, then you know what? You can’t make conversation." (John Scalzi)

This is mostly directed at guys creeping on girls, but it works with ANY gender combination. Get your actual shit together.

'I find myself garbed effectively,' I observed, to see what that wrought. (Nine Princes in Amber, Roger Zelazny).

Going to work Job No. 2 with #Advantage today and planning on rolling natural 20s.

And another one. Gold star if you guess the song it's based on. I really hope this home infusion for Remicade gets worked out, because I don't think +Lillith Sullivan is running out of fodder any time soon.

You know I'm a dreamer

Just find my VEIN and I'll never feel
like I'm going to explode
Take it for mah gut
Feel it in mah bones
Just one more VIAL
And you're sending off this
bright and crimson load

INFUSIONS AT HOME
Back to the place where I belong
Where my cats will always run all over me
now they're running from
the stranger RN all along
I don't regret this old IV
But the staff in Marshall's basement are getting old
So I'm going home
Wait while more posts are being loaded
