open letter to a reader who hates me

Dear deviantART guy who posts in Naruto Fan forum and other similar places:

Could you please contact me to tell me why you read this blog?

Since you claim to hate me and everything I believe in, yet you continue to read my blog, and continue to post links to it on a regular basis, you are in the perfect position to answer a question I puzzle over.

You have more than a passing knowledge of wmtc; you are a frequent visitor and are familiar with all its central themes. You post links to wmtc as non-sequitirs in random, unrelated threads. Yet you claim, "Every time I force myself to read her, I RAGE HARD."

Why do you force yourself?

Is "raging hard" - a recurrent theme of yours on your various forums and message boards - something you enjoy? An entertainment? I have enough rage at all the injustice in the world, so I don't seek out excuses to rage. But maybe your life is so placid and passionless that you need to find rage, just to know you're still alive. Is that it?

Is there, as Chrissie says, "a thin line between love and hate," and you actually adore me?

Or are you more like the virulent homophobes who are actually deeply closeted queers? Is that it - you're a closet socialist?

All I am asking is: why?

Of course I'd love to know who you are and how you know my blog, to confirm whether my suspicions are correct, or if your New England location, your right-wing politics and my partner's lefty Red Sox blog are unrelated and coincidental.

But I know someone who travels the net under so many different aliases, never using a real-life identity, will not have the courage to reveal himself.

So can you just answer this one question: if you hate me and everything I write about, why do you read this blog? Perhaps you will do that in return for all the entertaining rage I provide.

Your faithful correspondent,

Laura K a/k/a L-girl a/k/a "that chubby bitch from Mississauga"
