I commented in a friend's journal last night, and this morning I woke up to an inbox full of wankery.
I just got unfriended by a bunch of people who can't tell when I'm being sarcastic, and don't have the nerve to ask me "Hey, what the heck did you mean by that?" There was epic butthurt all around. Of course, none of them were real life friends, because they would have been used to my sense of humor by now. Still, a few of them were people that I kinda considered to be cool.
Maybe it's the economy, or something in the water, but it seems to me that people are getting more and more thin skinned as time goes on. People are taking things very literally, and then blowing them up to crazy proportions. "If you really believe x, then you must think XXXXXX! Nazi!!!"
So from here on out, be warned. I am silly, sarcastic, irreverent and occasionally not politically correct. I own a gun, vote Libertarian, and I'm pro Israel 100%. I think that everyone on the planet is created equal, and that nobody should get special rights, privileges, quotas, accommodations (except for disabilities).
I judge individual people by their actions alone, not on fancy speeches, physical appearances, or group affiliations. If you want to be my friend, show me. I believe that there are good and bad, stupid and smart, ethical and evil people in every group. There are always exceptions, and I am always open to finding them.
If you think I'm out of line, say something. If not, then you're a coward and I feel sorry for you. Life is too short to be riding the Drama Llama all day.
