Someone left this comment on my previous post - it's there for anyone who cares to read it.
Did it ever occur to you that there are MANY of us that find what you and what Chaz are going abhorrent? That your " self appointed activism" and his plain and simple limelight milking are hurting us both past and future far more than it is helping? That the both of you are out there reinforcing the publics prurient idea that we are all in it just in it for the sexual kicks and that those messy little things me need to survive like surgery are cosmetic and optional!My response: Of course it occurs to me. But the fact is - I don't care! That's why this is MY blog and not yours or anyone else's. If you don't agree with me - big friggin' deal. I'm not here to share what's popular, and I don't give a rat's a$$ whether you or anyone else feel similarly or not.
No matter what you do in the world there will be someone there to criticize it or NOT like it. The minute you start living your life based on your perceptions of popular opinions is the minute you give up your individuality and you admit that you're simply another sucker who is willing to hide. I'm not that sucker, so if you come here to criticize my "self appointed activism" all I can say is go out and do your own. I suppose if you are willing to take risks, if you get involved in efforts that are worthwhile, if you establish some legacy of your own you'll have your own "limelight" to milk, but until then stop yelling from the sidelines. As far as I'm concerned, all you are is noise.
If you had wanted to have an intelligent conversation about it that's one thing. But you obviously don't, so that's fine too. Apparently that's your brand of activism. But some things never change and when you get bitter, disenfranchised people who can't see the forest for the trees, who have one message that they need to reinforce again and again and again, who seems to view anyone who disagrees as some sort of enemy or threat - it's just being angry.
I've said and done unpopular things before and I'm fine with all of it. I'm a big girl and can handle it. My dad used to tell me that when too many people start to agree with him he begins to worry that he must be wrong. Regardless, don't think for a second that I'm going to change a thing I say or do because you may or may not like it. It's just that simple.
So back to my original point. I appreciate that you don't like what Chaz and/or I are doing - but I just don't friggin' care. If you want to share your opinions somewhere, start your own blog. And I'll continue to do my thing here. So if you don't like it - the answer is actually very simple. Just don't come and visit.
If me somehow meet one of these days talk to me like that in person. Face-to-face. I double dare you. But no - the anonymity of the internet gives rise to fools who feel emboldened to say ignorant things that shouldn't be said, or to abandon simple rules of respect and etiquette, or to think anyone else gives a damn. I write my blog because it provides an outlet for me - it's that simple. If you can't accept that - three words: Ki$$ my A$$.
