A recent post about Twitter got me thinking about my own students.
And then I made my first mistake. I looked a few names up on Twitter, admittedly, bad students whose dumbshit-edness required some sort of answer.
And they were worse people than I could ever imagine. Racist, misogynist, drugs, alcohol, just plain ignorance of anything approaching adult civility.
And Facebook was mostly the same. Hate speech cloaked as funny jokes.
Now I can't get any of it out of my head. I see these dumbasses and think about the reprehensible things they have posted in public. I don't want to tech them. I don't want to spend even one more second wasting my energy on such scum.
Oh why did I do it? It can't be unseen.
