dahlelama replied to your post: Wait, why do we all hate Thought Catalog all of a sudden? I have mixed feelings, because sometimes I read things there that are funny and sometimes I am puzzled as to why they published such a pointless piece of crap. So, ya know. Mixed. Which is a totally fine and fair (and normal) response. I don’t like everything they publish either (sidenote: is it the...

Or maybe it’s not all of a sudden? I like Thought Catalog! BUT I totally respect everyone who sits there and says, “IT’S THE WORST THING ON THE INTERNET!” At least they’re not saying, “It’s the worst thing on the internet because James Joyce wouldn’t have approved of the structure.”

Short version: it's because I'm a terrible person
I used to have this problem where I couldn’t get guys to be in the same room with me. As of tonight, I can’t even get them to tell me they don’t want to be in the same room with me. So I was stood up. So what? At least that’s what I keep saying. But then I think about how I left my mom alone at the hospital to go meet this guy (to be fair, she insisted I go when she...

The psychologists call it “deindividuation”. It’s what happens when social norms are withdrawn because identities are concealed. The classic deindividuation experiment concerned American children at Halloween. Trick-or-treaters were invited to take sweets left in the hall of a house on a table on which there was also a sum of money. When children arrived singly, and not wearing masks, only 8% of...
