I’ve played at this blogging thing for a few years now. I’ve danced around some subjects but rarely put anything out there that might offend someone. Well, those days are over. I am sick and tired of so many people getting offended over every little thing, to the point where some people’s careers are damaged because they offended this group or that. When did we become so uptight? When did we stop laughing at the absurdities of life and when did we start taking every single opportunity given to be so angry?
Let me say that I do not believe that it is okay to be a racist, or homophobic, but it might be okay to make fun of yourself as you’ve learned how to be better about those things. I will offend people, I know this and I’ve decided I’m okay with it. It will not be intentional, but I have a right to my opinions and thoughts, and this is my blog, so I feel it is perfectly okay for me to state how I feel about something, and I will do my best to provide the reasons why I feel the way I do with resources to back up my thoughts…at least most of the time. You may or may not agree with me, and that is your right. I do not have to agree with you to like you, but I do have to respect you.
So, read them, don’t read them I honestly do not care. This is my creative outlet, and I am so over avoiding putting my thoughts into words because I’m too concerned that I might say something wrong. Let me just tell you now – I will. I will stick my foot in my mouth, probably more than once…I will word something incorrectly and it will set someone off. Just know the intent is for me to meet my need to be creative it isn’t to hurt someone’s feelings.
So, buckle up buttercup because my fluff pieces are going to be rare, at least until I get over being annoyed at the stupidity that is going on all around me right now, or I ‘squirrel’ and move to another hobby, again. <- see I know my shortcomings and can laugh at myself.
