As the Internet becomes more popular, and even crucial to what it is to live in a modern era, so is the market that comes along with it and the many uses you can give nowadays when it comes to administering the World Wide Web. When the Internet first came along, nobody would have suspected how important these connections would actually be as it is nowadays. It had made communication a whole lot easier, as well as it helps with keeping everything interconnected when it comes to social interactions, including keeping the balance of billions of businesses and personal lives.
The Internet, over the years, have become perhaps the main source of communication across broadly all generations for even every little task that has to do with social interacting at some point. Given how fairly recent the Internet as we know it was developed, it’s amazing to see how it has been implemented throughout our lives as something that is essential to us now. All this has helped spread different ideas from different places all in one place, which results in new ideas emerging and better understanding of those who have other ways to approach life, as an individual and as constituents of other communities all over the globe.
Many people also use these to simply reach to one another and keeping those valued in their lives closer to them. Online activity also permits you in seeking more individuals who are like-minded and join together with them to discuss various things and how to approach issues of conflicts on the Internet and in real life. This allows us to organize better, while also debating and trying to reach a consensus among us, as well as to merely have a place in where to freely interact more freely.
When it comes to today, we have so many resources that could taken advantage of, as when it specifically concerns about organization, rather than online activism (though that also). The reason why I focus more on organization is because it allows us to come as a stronger force than going about it alone, not to mention that these sorts of things also strengthen when these efforts are taken into real life scenario by having instant support and references in where to guide yourself to and discuss your finding, plans, etc. This gives space for people that might want to join the effort as well, and for to also get suggestions for other approaches that should be considered.
As for when it comes to activism online, it mostly helps currently in getting more allies and recruiting individuals that might lost about in their sexuality, as well as likely to work on those you consider your friends and have interacted with you plenty of times in the past, contrary to the belief that this type of activity’s only goal is to convince Antis. While the audience should be aimed partially at them, many of those individuals are not willing to open their mind either way, therefore, while you must be up for dealing with them, it must also be recognized that making such a stance would be of help for those who are troubled with themselves, as well as those who are just more curious about us because they have a more reasonable approach toward our community.
Doing these also helps clear misconceptions, eventually, of who we actually are, some might accept it, while others would just have to see it to actually believe it. Some individuals are just like that when it comes to approaching concepts unknown to them. Despite of that, we are letting ourselves getting known, little by little, while also providing with some sort of comfort for those who feel alone once they find out that they aren’t really as isolated as they thought.
I really think that the most important thing for us right now is to have multiple places in where to communicate and reach each other. Supporting ourselves, and approaching lives, preferably those you already know, and show them that MAPs can also be good people and, like with every group of people, there are ethical sides to them. This doesn’t mean that should limit yourself to but only one type of activism, the more of them you can do, the better, since society cannot avoid of us forever, no matter how much they try to.
Anyways, back to what I initially stated, in order to organize ourselves, we need a lot of platforms in where we can linger and have access to support from ourselves, and additionally from those who are also supportive or open to us. It will help us in the sense of having even more places than we might already have for expressing our feelings and thoughts. It will also benefit in that we are at the same spreading ourselves while doing so, and showing sides of ourselves we normally do not show during merely debating, such as how we coup with our attraction in a society that hates us and just our pure inputs about things alone, straight out of the mind, which is something good in many cases for non-MAPs to witness, not to mention to MAPs themselves when dealing with particular insecurities.
