Wow. What’s interesting is that this dialogue rather than your piece resonated with me. I read your piece and thought: but doesn’t she know this isn’t real?! And you kinda responded: well of course I do, silly.
But it is (in its unrealness, so to speak).
I also didn’t take into account the manifestation of good that comes from online.
(Btw jaden, the words ‘Asian diva in the gay community' should be on a plaque somewhere). People leaving their families for online people?
Thanks for opening up my understanding guys :-) I’ve never seriously contemplated the effect or affect of the Internet (even though I’ve been affected by it as well). I also think it’s pretty cool that you have a happy marriage ChaosIntended (for better or for worse of the Internet :-)
