The land of cry babies.
That's what we have become.
I read a fabulously and well written article today about how we should not cow tow, or rather how we should 'stop trying to protect everyone's feelings' and I could not agree more.
I've done blog posts about any number of things that cross my mind and inevitably someone is offended by my words, getting snotty and all up in my face simply for having an opinion.
It's what our nation and what the blogging world has become, nasty responses to anyone having an opinion that we do not agree with, and it's OKAY not to agree, but to become so overly sensitive and over-react simply makes no sense.
I myself take issue when photos or words are stolen, but I don't recall asking that a book not be published or given as a reading assignment in fear of it doing damage to someone's psyche or long term emotional well being.
I write the words I want and am not good at hiding how I feel regarding a situation or happening in my life, but as long as we bloggers or book writers are not telling out right lies that indeed harm another person in a REAL way, and not just their overly sensitive nature/feelings, then all should be good, right?
If the person reading those words is simply the overly sensitive type of person, then that's their problem... they own their feelings and the rest of the world is not responsible for how their brain processes and reacts to whatever it is they read.
