Does anyone have a good synonym for “hysterical?” I really, really don’t want to use that word, but there’s a book character I struggle to describe any other way: Someone who goes to pieces at the slightest provocation and is constantly crying and/or angry at everyone around her whether they’ve done anything or not.

(And who doesn’t have any conditions that would cause her to behave that way.)

Tempermental? Fractious? Hot-tempered? Volatile? Capricious? I think the last two most closely fit what you are looking for.

Those are all excellent words that I should use more often. (I’m not familiar with “fractious” but I like the sound of it.)

Oh gods. I am equally jealous and impressed with those paper bag masks.

Excitable? Unreasonable? Easily provoked (oops, it’s a phrase, not a word)?

Or maybe show, don’t tell–describe what she does rather than what she is.

@Fabe: I haven’t been on in weeks. A combination of my kids getting to bed late and a few adventures that just have to be written. Plus Tumblr isn’t going to read itself (if an argument occurs on Tumblr, and no one is around to see it, does anybody get angry?).

I like the word apoplectic. I never get to use it enough. But I don’t think it’s really a synonym for hysterical, though.

Well Kirby recently updated his computer to Windows 10, and has shut down the server because it’s too hard on his computer to keep it running all the time. Because we all get on at such different times because we’re all on different timezones, it’s impossible for him to keep the thread open 24/7.

He’s looking for someone to rent server space from, and he’s going to try to make a vanilla server so more people can join. (I won’t be, because I’m not a fan of vanilla Minecraft anymore. Giving me the power to summon demons and shoot fireballs from my hands will do that.)

Have you guys seen the Bob’s Burgers pick-up artist bit? It’s pretty on the nose.

Holy shit, I’m getting into my first twitter fight with an egg icon MRA.

I was wondering about the minecraft thing, actually.

katz:
“Unstable”, “volatile” and “unpredictable” would be my descriptors of such behaviour. Then again, so would “terrifying”: I’ve had such people in my life and it’s something I’m wary of nowadays.

Um…good luck?

I’ve got a Tumblr follower now that’s pro-Templar and likes Cullen, but I think this can work since we both like Samson. Also they talk about good issues not related to Dragon Age so hopefully they aren’t just following me because Dragon Age.

(But they’re totally following me because Dragon Age.)

And now I’m bored, so I blocked the egg.

I was being sincere in my good luck but, like, I wouldn’t want you to be in a fight in the first place. uWu

I can be quite the scrappy little fuck when I want to be.

But, I still don’t like confrontation, so meh.

Oh, and I apparently “have no arguments” and I’m “morally bankrupt” because I blocked them.

*pffffft* Wanker.

Oh the other hand, this person reblogged a couple of shippy pictures featuring Cole.

I am regretting following them.

To be honest, most of their “arguments” were that “all feminism is radical because it stems from radical ideas like “rape culture” and “patriarchy”, and the roots of feminism are radical, so all feminism is radical and all feminists want social degradation of society!”, “All feminists think alike and since you don’t think like them, you’re just a drone!”, and “All feminists care about is abortion and their pussies because that’s all I see them talk about, and they’re not capable of caring about more than one thing at a time!”

So, lulz were had, then I blocked him because he started to repeat and I got bored. Oh, and they kept calling me “dummy” like we were on the fucking playground.

That’s…well. That’s wrong and doesn’t make sense. It’s almost like they never even googled “feminism” or something.

Not that that’s a revelation or anything.

Glad there’s an open thread because I really wanted to post this and say that MRAs are human garbage. This takes me back to when I first looked in to them online. It was an eerie experience because i was basically new to the internet and thought, “oh men’s rights, that sounds great!” and because I had already known quite a bit about domestic violence, I saw some stomach churning things and was like omg these guys are abusers. Sure enough they were coined the abusers lobby. Was so relieved when I heard that term. Anyway. here’s a really horrible article from buzzfeed that just came out about women and child abuse and how often, even though they are not the abuses, they are sentenced to ridiculously long sentences, longer than the abusers, and other points you always knew MRAs were lying about. It needs a serious trigger warning.

I have no idea when something is going to trigger me, so the warnings don’t help I have to go with how I feel. I felt I could handle this, and I’m now up at 3 am with dilated pupils, and will probably see sunset. Those are the breaks. I did read this hours and hours ago and have managed myself ok.
