A while ago I watched the disasterous LCQ at neobuggy.net, and after I crashed the commentator said a thousand cheers and a thousand boos as I am such a divisive character, or something like that. And I just thought I would write a bit about that.
Do I want people to hate me? No of course not, who wants that? I would like to be loved by everyone. Do I want to sell more, and make more money? Yes of course, who wouldn’t? So why don’t I do that? Because being vanilla requires you to be dishonest with yourself and what you believe in, and it requires you to be both a sheep and a hypocrite. We all are both of those things, me too, but we all draw the line somewhere. It’s just a question of where. And I decided to draw it in a very different place compared to most people.
I am not a bad person, but if you give me reason to, I will say bad things to you. If I don’t like you, you will know. If I have an opinion, you will hear it. I’m OK with all of that. For the people that I have had disagreements with, it’s perfectly fine if they hate me. I don’t hold grudges, so I don’t hate them, but if they hate me I understand, and I am fine with it.
The thing that gets me, is that for the people that have never met me, there is no reason to hate me. There really isn’t. I challenge you to find one. All I have said for the past few years on facebook is that I don’t think police should shoot people in the face, I don’t think racism is a particularly good idea, I don’t think all muslims are terrorists, I think all people should be treated equally, regardless of who they are, what their skin colour is, which god they believe in, how much money they have in the bank, or who their friends are, and I think if a woman wants to have an abortion I think she should be legally able to do it.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t see where any of those opinions make me a bad person. I’m sorry I don’t hate people different to me.
