Don't commit any felonies. On a serious note, start thinking about college now, don't put it off like I did.

I agree, spend this time getting good at something and then you can get money for it later.

If you're white then you'd better wise up to a load of people wanting your scalp while telling you that you're the villain.

Actually that makes me think of a deeper bit of advice. Some of the most evil people you will come across, big and small scale, will wrap themselves up in an underdog narrative for concealment & defense.

If you think your gut's telling you that somebody is like this, just stay away from them. If for some reason you can't, and they start something with you or someone you care about, immediately reach for legal help. DO NOT talk to them and ESPECIALLY do not talk to local authority figures (managers or university RA's; I'm not talking about the police). Why? Money's why. It's easier and cheaper for college admins and the low-level business types you're likely to be dealing with to just cave in to somebody higher up on the intersectionality totem pole than to stand up for you/the rules.

Fuck off. I had a friend who went down the "oppressed white male" rabbit hole, and it fried his brain. He lost all sense of logic, saw everyone and everything oppressing him, pissed off and lost his friends, started ranting into the internet void, all alone.

Brikguy you're a smart guy, don't fuck your life up. Listen to what people say. Try to see things from their point of view.

No thanks.

FFS, if you're gonna throw down pig slop at me like that and tell me what to do, then let's throw down. In the discord. I think it'd clear the air. Go faster than a back-and-forth text wall, too. I mean, I'm telling him something I wish somebody had told me at his age and you're spewing out this crud because...your friend is a fool?

EDIT: Fuck Discord, I'm messaging the Morning Kumite to see if they'll have us on for a proper banter! I hope they'll have us.

I mean. You see how that's funny, right? I thought you did it on purpose.

Anyway my advice at 17 is to just accept that you're going to be the villain in a lot of regards, regardless of whatever identity group people try to jam you into. Everybody hitting their late teens and early twenties thinks they're the good guy, and everybody has the same kind of crazy blind spot when the people around them try to point out how they're falling short. If people tell you you're the villain, don't immediately go into defensive combat mode. Relax, chew on whatever they said, figure out why they feel that way and how much truth to it there may or may not be. You don't know as much about other people's experience of the world as you think you do, your good intentions don't matter as much as your willingness to take responsibility for your unintended consequences afterwards, and all you can really do is try to learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward.

Just relax. Everybody's a villain, it's okay. The question is what you do with your villainies once they're pointed out to you.

"("white guys are the real victims" underdog narrative)"

Except I didn't say that. I told him straight up that there are bigots out there who would like to get him (assuming he is white) and have the potential to be let off unless you bring out some heavy legal artillery. I don't see how there's anything wrong with that given my own experience of being told the opposite only to have chucklefucks try to ruin my life.

"You see how that's funny, right?"

No, it's actually pretty tragic to me. I don't have some kind of sob narrative about whites being the 'real victims.' The mixed race single mom and the Philippine lady I worked with at my old job all had to deal with and clean up after the diversity hire together. And that's the true rub; there is class A of jerks who are fork-tongued and two faced who like to fuck up peoples' lives, and there is group B of jerks who let them get away with it if group A checks off the right boxes. That's all I want to warn Brikguy about. Him chunking his life over fringe politics is as bad to me as him getting locked up or put on a registry on BS accusations.

"Just relax."

Done. This place is yours and I'm not about to start dissing that.

Is that relevant?
doesn't mean i can't have some type of wisdom ; )
:warhead:

For example, a dm is probably a better place to host this conversation.

I mean yeah, it was partly a side comment at azkamat, but that really was the advice I wish someone had given me at 17. Recognizing that you're the villain sometimes and accepting that it's your job to fix it is where adolescence ends and adulthood begins.

The wisest words I came across in the last few months remain:

    World: hard and cold
    Tiddy: soft and warm

Take these words to heart, Brikguy. You'll be needing them soon enough.
