Get real

There has been another stabbing due to a kid wanting to become a proxy. You need to do the responsible thing and cut it out with the “slender man is real” bullshit. Be responsible and make a disclaimer, the majority of your audience is under the age of 12, and act like the mythos is gospel. Yeah it’s fun and creepy, but play time is over, grow up. 

Thank you, BricksBricks, for your anonymous contribution. Here is my response to your proposal:

Nah.

If, at this point, you care about why and haven’t just skipped over this and written me off as some apathetic asshole, I have a few reasons why I will continue to run this blog in the matter which my predecessors have.

1) You’re wrong. About the not having said Slenderman isn’t real at least. I made a post — well replied to an ask — about it, and said “yes, he is not real.” And, as another mod quit, he made a post about how “yes, he is not real.” So it’s not like this hasn’t been stated at all before.

2) According to the tumblr terms of service, you have to be at least 13 years old to use this site, so as far as I can tell, the majority of my audience is not under the age of 12.

3) You’re right, it is fun and creepy. What about the horror movies that claim they’re “based on a true story”? What about the scary stories and books you could find at any library? What about youtube and creepypasta the site? Or just plain word of mouth urban legends? You’re asking us to change how we run our small blog with a small(er) gathering, for one internet meme? Because two girls went too far? I’m not saying it wasn’t a tragedy but that doesn’t mean everyone must change their habits. I am not promoting violence, and to be honest when people ask if they’re proxies, ask to be one, or how to be one, I’ll tell them that’s a stupid fucking idea and not something you’ll want.

What happened was a tragedy, and I feel for the families and friends; I just do not believe that everyone else has to stop telling urban legends because some cildren happened to find out about it on the Internet.

So nah, you can grow up tho. Spoil sport.
