Hey man, I just want to apologize.
Quarantine has allowed me to think of a lot of random shit from over the years, and I finally remembered my VgChartz password (I didn't have access to the email)
I created an apology thread about 7 years ago publicly I think, but I don't think I ever apologized to you personally.
Idk if you remember, but I wrote a bunch of horrible anti-gay shit on VGC when I was in HS and I can't believe how fucking stupid I was.
Some of it was trolling but a lot of it I actually believed, and I was a dumbass kid regurgitating dumbass beliefs my mother gave me without questioning them. I was fucking brainwashed.
After I got out on my own I was able to question my beliefs and discover who I am - and I'm pretty horrified and disgusted at the shit I was saying. I don't even believe in god anymore. I went from being an anti-gay right-wing Christian fundamentalist, to a left-wing socialist atheist LGBTQ+ ally.
I totally deserved all the shit you threw my way. I was a fucking asshole. The only thing you'll be disappointed in is that I wasn't some self-hating gay dude all along as your prophesized. I was just a fucking moron with misdirected anger.
I don't even necessarily expect you to accept my apology. I'm not entitled to some sort of forgiveness from a random internet stranger.
Anyway, I was already planning on nuking this account; I just figured this was my last chance to pen an apology beforehand - before I close the chapter - so to speak.
Best of luck,
