These Confession Pages Are Damaged Beyond Repair

This post is a direct response to the 'Confession Pages' popping up everywhere on Facebook

What is a Confession? 

  • A formal admission of one's sins with repentance and desire of absolution.
  • A formal statement admitting that one is guilty of a crime.
  • An admission or acknowledgment that one has done something that one is ashamed or embarrassed about.

What human would even consider posting it  publicly 
I'll be damned if people think that a confession is a statement to whine or complain about people or things. I believe people still complain, crib and bitch through the anonymous confession media because they don't really know what constitutes a confession or intentionally post their most detrimental of thoughts.
Whatever, no harm no foul, right? But the second option is what that scares me. People use the most offensive  and abusive language verbally possible using the confession medium to get attention and create a controversy and rip out the people that they dislike.

So let me be clear on one thing. What juvenile shit people are passing of as confessions(both negative and positive, especially the latter) ARE NOT CONFESSIONS. They are their opinions and thoughts about people. I think we can all agree on that.

One of the things that is pretty baffling is that people 'confess' about what offends them. Now, that is their opinion. Society has created false values about opinions. Oh, so something offends you? So fucking what? Are we to take that as gospel and respect your decision to hate something/someone?

Another thing is how perfectly okay it is for people to create Facebook pages and let people's inner beasts ravage the dignity of other people and scrape for mindless controversies. This is  not unlike the rape culture we've been hearing about. How is it acceptable to create a medium to bash people, isn't this exact thing cyber bullying? You wouldn't go creating mutual groups to bitch and crib about other people, so why create cyber bullies online?

These pages are NOT a place to dole out judgment and abuse on human beings you barely know. And even if people know them, on what basis does this give them the right to publicly humiliate someone?

And people without a conscience do not get to decide what they can post and publish publicly. The admins and moderators of these kind of groups are like and attention whores. There's no other reason for those sadistic persons to continue posting obviously immoral and downright insolant assumptions. They are the real life grinches.

Internet is not a strange place that we are unfamiliar with. But do people become fiends on the internet? Is this the purpose of connectivity and socialization online? I'd just like you as a person(even if this is somewhat of an emotional appeal) to know that behind the screens, you are not a machine, not a sadistic beast that can derive pleasure from mutilating their own offline ethics and ideology.
This is both an assesment of the Pages, and a request to both the posters and admins to keep the shit low. Not everyone wants to get involved in a fight with a faceless man with ravine spectators to watch the show.
