Drax Files confirms: The world should stop believing that Second Life residents are sad and socially inept!

I reblog this because I very much approve of what she says and I dont agree with how the public makes prejudgments about worlds like this. Of course there are socially inept and socially challenged ppl in Second life but Iv seen a lot of them in real life too… Especially in Facebook – inventing a dreamlife for themselves. Ppl are just afraid of things they dont understand and have tried themselves, that´s why worlds like these have to take so much sh-t I think. There is no more s-x and violence in SL than on the internet as a whole, quite the opposite I would say.

She finds it strange and disconcerting that such generalizations are projected onto a “whole culture of people” who happen to converse and interact online.
