Before I get into the meat of this post, let me just spread a thin layer of mustard or mayo if you like, on the bread by asking this. Can ONE SINGLE INDIVIDUAL with no power or authority attack/bully tens of thousands simply by writing to no one? Can a LONE INDIVIDUAL force strangers to read her blog? Do trans people have a choice in what they read online?
Now lets put some meat on this baby by first examining the exact meaning of what dirt/this blog is so often accused:
Do I or does this blog strongly criticize someone/something? No. I do critically think and then critically analyze people/subjects/ideas and theories-mostly on this blog. If you are confused about critical thinking/critical analysis:
Some may not like where that critical analysis leads, but thats something to be taken up with Truth, not me.
Next up is bully:
I, nor has this blog EVER threatened people with harm. Period! My holding up a mirror to reveal truths may feel threatening to some, but that isnt the same as threatening. If you are a person who feels threatened by things you read, my advice to you is STOP reading things you feel threatened or bullied by. And certainly do NOT go back day after day after day reading, all the while feeling attacked and threatened and bullied for what YOU are CHOOSING to read!
Last year, my then three year old little little nephew (Little E) had a note sent home from DAYCARE saying Little E had bullied another boy. When the daycare authorities were contacted the next day for the full story, it seems an older boy had taken something that Little E was playing with and Little E calmly called the boy a "Juice Box Baby" and said boy started crying as a result. Whether Little E was in the right or wrong for name calling, he certainly was NOT bullying! He didnt systematically over days, weeks, months call this boy a Juice Box Baby, he said it ONCE! Now if this other boy feels is fragile or wasnt taught by his parents that sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me, then by golly this kid has bigger problems than a three year old calling him a Juice Box Baby!
Collective youth today are so weak, fragile, smothered, pampered, spoon fed, diapered, soft playgrounded, knee padded, elbow padded and helmeted if they sniff even an eyeroll, grimace or verbal insult they're a puddle on the gymnasium floor! The fact is, there will ALWAYS be real bullies, real attacks, real falling off bikes, real skinned knees and hearts and life isnt fair! But life is a whole lot more bearable by experiencing life's minor adversities, which builds character and strength, so that they can endure the really difficult times. And they WILL come.
If you are old enough to read this blog, and you are in full control over what you read, if you feel afraid, threatened or bullied by material found here, exercise your freedom of choice and exit from this blog. If you CHOOSE to read, then do NOT accuse myself/this blog of attacking/bullying you into do so!
Little tip: Lose the knee pads. After getting your knees skinned a few times, you will find you no longer need them.
