Visual Assaults on Twitter

Unfortunately, lately there have been a number of perverts, sociopaths, or maybe just emotionally immature people on Twitter deliberately posting pictures self-described as “disturbing.” Adults with social skills would recognize this immediately as a clue to the inappropriate. I don’t understand why anyone would waste their time deliberately trying to gross others out. There’s so much beauty in the world. Why not post beautiful pictures? I’ve been visually assaulted by images of what must either be excruciatingly painful diseases or photo shopped fakes. Other pictures are simply pornography. I certainly wouldn’t want children to be exposed to such very disturbing images. Nor should I be. I realize I’ve just been exposed to the grotesque disease of ugliness of the human spirit. May they find something more constructive to do with their time. It’s like the disturbed people who kill others and then take their own life, which was probably their true desire to begin with. If we were all honest with ourselves, I suspect we’d all be kinder to each other. But I can only choose for myself. I choose not to look at Twitter while “disturbing” is the trend.
