Whoo Homestuck update resulting in religious conflict wtf. So I'm Buddhist as some here might know. Really my religious affiliation is a huge mess. One thing that definitely remains dear to me is metta though, often translated as loving-kindness. Metta is basically an unconditional love for all living beings and the desire for those living beings to be happy, healthy, and peaceful. For every last living thing to succeed and not be shit or feel like shit. The all bit needs to be emphasized I feel. It is the key. No one is undeserving of metta and if people are being excluded from metta in some fashion then it's not actually metta. I often feel like an awful person for this though. I know that I'm not prioritizing abusers over victims and I know that I do in fact care about victims and I do what things I can to help people with shit they've been put through. I'm not perfect by any means and I have room to improve, and I do have biases in places. Still it's hard not to feel like an entirely awful person for thinking that abusers deserve care and efforts to help too. I want to be one of the people who helps people who've hurt others learn to not do that again and to improve. Like I want to be one of those monks/nuns who goes around to prisons and the like talking to people and trying to help them through their shit. It means a lot to me. It's one of my big things I'd like to do when I join the Sangha, even if only for a time. Along with the whole "RADICAL FEMINIST BUDDHISM" thing. But I feel like an entirely awful person for it and feel like it means I'm blaming victims or that I hate them. I also feel bad for extending it to animals because I feel like that means I hate people and want them to suffer because I think cats are more important or some shit.
