I really, really wasn't going to do this.....
It was I thought, a private matter between the parties involved, until he decided to make it a public one. Very public.
It wasn't enough that he felt he had to go run and tell our mutual friends about it, like some tattle-tale.
No, just couldn't help himself it seems.
Just had to make sure he played the part of the "social crusader" like he usually does.
Even worse, he involved my family.
That's usually a line I don't cross.
That's a line most should NEVER cross, but it was and has been.
I'm talking about Karl L. Disley.
It all started due to a simple misunderstanding.
A good friend of mine(and former mutual FB friend of Karl's) alerted me last week that it appeared as if Karl has unfriended and blocked her.
Understandibly curious, I attempted to message Karl, and ask him what was going on.
It seemed that I too was blocked and unfriended by Karl.
I openly admit, that my friend and I jumped to conclusions.
An honest and simple mistake.
I've confessed to currently dealing with some very personal matters as of late, and I believe that played a huge part in overracting.
I don't know every detail of what my friend said to Karl, but yes she did call him weird. But she also later apologized profusely to him, only to be cussed out.
I've felt that same way about him being weird, due to some examples of some odd behavior of his over the short amount of time I've known him, or thought I knew him.
But I've always felt he was like that ecentric uncle or family member we all have. Harmless really, just eccentric and kooky at times, but again a mostly cheery, congenial fellow.
As I said, I've been dealing with very personal and private issues as of late, so I haven't been making the Internet rounds as of late.
So, before I have a chance to rectify things, I'm being informed by two mutual friends and frequent commenters here, that Karl's claiming I'm a homophobe, as well as some other not so nice things.
It's not the first time I've been called names, and won't be the last time I'm sure.
But to insinuate that I'm homophobic is ridiculous and libellous.
I honestly ask any and all readers of this blog, especially those I've had personal contact with, whether it be through email or phone calls, if I've ever given any of you that impression, or made homophobic or offensive comments to you.
I don't believe I ever have, especially here.
I'm not asking for sides to be taken, but I believe if you're willing to make bold statements like that, you usually have proof to back those claims up.
I invite Mr. Disley to produce such evidence.
You know its funny, I get labeled as a homophobe. Does that mean that Mr. Disley is in fact gay then?
Whether he is or not, is no one's business, including mine.
It's just odd I get labeled that, and yet I don't recall ever publicly stating he was, even though privately I've always wondered.
Anyhoo, he claimed his account was suspended due to posting a picture that Facebook deemed inappropriate.
What that was, idk.
I have my suspicions, but that's all they are.
I do know he recently posted a very risque and I'd say, inappropriate picture of himself, posing in his underwear.
I can't hazard to guess why somebody would do that, especially on Facebook, but that's the sort of thing you'd expect to find on Craig's list.
But that's his business.
Mine is him approaching and threatening to contact my family members, which I might add is also weird. Why automatically befriend people and family members of a friend you don't personally know? Who does that sort of thing?
I was also informed he's trying to have me banned from Dan's blog.
How very mature.
It seems despite all of this stemming from a simple misunderstanding, Karl's revealed his true colors.
That's unfortunate, but not totally surprising.
Again, I'm not asking for anyone to take sides. If you know me and the type of person I am, I shouldn't have to.
I just felt the need to clarify some things, and that's all I have to say about this.
Hope you guys had a good weekend.
I'll leave you now to return to my much-needed vacation.
