Before I start getting too far into this blog post, let me explain that I am heavily medicated as I attempt to battle a vicious cold or virus or whatever this insane weather has spawned upon me to make me feel utterly miserable. So, bear with me as I am about to be a tad bit silly…shocking, I know. Alright so here we go down another rabbit hole into the mind of Sadystika Sabretooth.

Today, boys and girls we shall discuss the illustrious keyboard warrior. We’ve all seen them, perhaps even been one once upon a time. However, let us begin by breaking this down…shall we? *giggles*
According to Dictionary.com a warrior is:
noun
1. a person engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier.
2. a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.
Let’s go another step further and define keyboard warrior…ooh my, our Urban Dictionary sure has a lot to say on the subject! They’ve given four rather long descriptions, I’ll share the first and you can look up the rest for yourselves, but if you ask me its all rather redundant and at this point, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “FFS! Sady we all know what a keyboard warrior is!” I did warn you….Ok, so Urban Dictionary says that a Keyboard Warrior is:
1. A Person who, being unable to express his anger through physical violence (owning to their physical weakness, lack of bravery and/or conviction in real life), instead manifests said emotions through the text-based medium of the internet, usually in the form of aggressive writing that the Keyboard Warrior would not (for reasons previously mentioned) be able to give form to in real life.

So, we’ve all seen them, particularly in SL and even occasionally on Facebook, depending on your circle of friends. I’m rather fortunate at the moment and don’t see this type of thing on FB too often. However, one can not go about reading profiles in SL without running into profile picks of people professing their loyalty to family and friends with violent threats, some of which can be quite graphic in details. Kudos for effort, yeah? At the end of the day, though, what are they really going to do? Get mad? Cuss you out? Try to start rumors? Stir up drama? Odds are they do those things already or they wouldn’t be the type of people do put that crap in their profiles to begin with.
I appreciate that they feel so strongly protective of someone in their lives, but honestly are any of us really frightened by these words? The only thing that frightens me about them is usually the bad grammar and misspelled words. I have to wonder if the people that write that kind of stuff actually believe it when they write it. Do they believe it when they see it written in other people’s profiles and back off? Meh. I don’t believe in virtual warriors.

I do believe in emotional and mental warriors, those of us that fight with our inner demons daily to get out of bed, to move forward, to do the next right thing. Those are the warriors for me…oh and people like Josh here who put up with all sorts of avatar torture just so I can get the picture I want and make Kobie happy to see some blood and gore from us instead of all the mush. *grins* Thanks, baby, your heart was tasty!
So, the picture was inspired by a combination of items that sorta fell into my lap…*giggles* We’ve got this wicked little Betty Dress from The Annex available at We ❤ Role-Play along with some new horns and ears that E.A. Studios is presenting at Fetish Fair. I could go on and on about the events and the items featured, but you know what do to…GO SHOPPING! Get creative, take pictures, play, have fun, enjoy your SL and don’t let those keyboard warriors phase you…block and mute buttons are your friends. *winks*
