Naturally, people ask, "Why would you get something if you don't know what it means?" But it only took a three of that to inspire first, the "Well my dead -insert relative, friend, etc here- used to have it-draw it so IT DOES MEAN SOMETHING TO ME" excuse, and then, a whopping ONE more to inspire preemptive "NO IT DOES TOO HAVE MEANING" post ala, But, but, even though it has this deep meaning to ME, just wanted to make sure it wasn't stupid! because she doesn't want anymore meanie heads calling her on tattooing a symbol on her body when she does not know its meaning.
Instead of pointing out that "Well, if it's got meaning to you then that's what it means", there is much explaining of why people are so mean, and then, the obligatory "Why are people so mean on the internet?!" comment.
ETA: Posting before coffee is bad. It's locked, and I do care and it wasn't so I could post postcards with testicles and make a thousand sockpuppets to prove how much I don't care. Damnit.
