why do men insist on keeping friendships with shitty people????
like you don't have to interact with them or be nice to them just bc you've known them for a long time and once were close
remove them, stop inviting them places, stop making other folks feel uncomfortable or even unsafe to be With You because you refuse to remove those people from your life
this isn't to say somehow that literally ALL responsibility falls to each of these individuals. I'm willing to say society is grooming this bullshit. society needs either a pyrrhic failure or a beautiful, phoenixesque rising from the ashes into a beautiful second renaissance of technology and guilds and information actually shared instead of behind a "learn it noob" shield defense of insecure tech fucksticks.
but society preys on the young, immature minds of children.
