I think playing at being an MLP changeling internally and on Twitter has actually been pretty therapeutic for dealing with my "righteous indignation" issues. I started thinking about it after a Wiki crawl, accidentally themed around the all-around shittiness of J Edgar Hoover, reminded me of how much I hate the NYPD right now and want to lash out (verbally) at them.

This was followed by thoughts of how ugly it would be for my whole household and community if any of my darkest revenge fantasies would ever play out -- don't worry, they never will, that's what this is all about. I pondered all the counterculture literature I've read, and how that kind of dumb emotional overreaction is damn near always what brings a good social experiment crashing down.

So being a changeling is turning out to be a fantastic way to accept and embrace my just, healthy resentment of these abusive fuckers in power, without feeling I need to strike to put up a healthy resistance.

Admittedly most of this will make no sense if you're unfamiliar with MLP but you're welcome to try anyhow. :)  )
