Hi, my name is Vitor, I'm 18 and my blog sucks.
angry-veela asked: You made a post about a haunted house that exploits and makes a spectacle out of a horrifying experience that happens to many people IRL and the word you chose to describe it with was "different"? Seriously? That's appalling.
I think all haunted houses do that from making monsters out of psychologically ill people to murdering baby scenes.
While I completely understand if some people find it horrible, others find it thrilling.
That’s why the line for this house is over a mile long whenever it opens every Halloween.
Blackout Haunted House is the first one I’m hearing about to use such disturbing scenes to scare people. And that’s what makes it different. No one is forcing you to go here if you find it offensive, but you shouldn’t bash on the people who do want to go to give themselves a good scare.
Why shouldn’t I look negatively on people who enjoy seeing women being raped as part of a theme park? I love horror—movies, fiction, and enjoy being scared. But there’s a difference between horror and exploitation. Where does the line get drawn? Just because it’s popular doesn’t make it right or good.
By posting about this place, you are endorsing it. Which brings into question both your ethics and your judgement.
It’s not that they “enjoy” seeing something like that, it’s put there to scare them, which is the purpose of a haunted house.
Furthermore, they are put into that position, where the rapist attacks them, whether they are a guy or a girl.
Yes rape is a horrible thing and it should never happen, but the most scariest things in life aren’t monsters or ghosts, but these real events happening every day.
Blackout Haunted house does a good job of putting you in that position and giving you a firsthand experience of the real horrors of life.
And there are many people who want that thrill and experience.
(I personally wouldn’t go here because it’s too extreme for me, so I completely understand where you are coming from. But I also understand people who do want this scary experience.)
been carrying around this sack of bees ever since my grandmother told me beauty is in the eye of the bee holder. to be honest sometimes I wish she had never told me this information
