Three quick answers
- My blog.
- My choice.
- There are other blogs out there that will NEVER offend you.... if you are that precious I beg you good tidings and farewell with all the blessings I can muster..... really.
I hate political correctness.....We spend SO much time and effort on NOT annoying or offending people that we so carefully word our dissent that it comes across - in most cases.... NOT all cases... as a plea NOT to take offence.
So....... I say it like it is - completely without tact - without concern and without a safety net.... And here's why...
I COUNT THAT MOST OF MY READERS - ESPECIALLY THE REGULARS - HAVE ENOUGH OF AN INTELLECT TO LOOK BEYOND THE DELIVERY AND SEE THE INTENT OF THE WORDS
And I am fairly certain that most do. And yet - comments don't seem to reflect that. And that's the PC infection I'm afraid.
Actually - I like it when other bloggers say "Fuck it and fuck you and the horse you rode in on coz THIS is how I feel." Why? Coz whether we agree with the delivery or not - it is usually what MANY of us think and or feel.
We are trying SO hard to be these perfect examples of social media when we really should be ourselves.
I'm a nice guy. I'm good to my Ima (mum) - I even moved her in and take care of her. My friends can depend on me 24/7 and I'd give them whatever cash I had on me if they needed it. I have a "generally" sunny disposition if and when the 'Monster' allows.
However - stupidity.... hate... ignorance .... fake... facile..... bigotry.... PC..... all makes my starfish itch like the guy on the hemorrhoid commercial.
So......... you some of you I know don't agree - some of you might.... that's all good........... in the end you have a choice of how you feel about this - just as I have the choice to say how it is and and how I feel it is...
There you go.
Shalom n Blessings to you all....
