This is likely the easiest way to address all of you out there who are just dying to be offended so you can create some sort of faux cause to rally behind.
Let’s make one thing clear right up front. If you get offended by ANYTHING in this post, that’s your fault, all yours.
And for you people too dense to understand this one very important thing. My opinion, 100% mine, and only mine. I don’t represent anyone but myself here, on facebook, on twitter, anywhere.
The meme the world decided to rally behind that I posted months ago. The meme that some of you clowns and more of you spineless looking to be offended folks turned into something it was not. Every one of you gutless cowards, when ‘calling me out’ or calling me a racist, every one of you left out the only word in that entire meme that mattered. You had to, otherwise you’d have had to go elsewhere to find offense and create something out of nothing. Let me help you now. All of you fraudulent media folks, you lazy ass “don’t actually want to work for a story” clowns. The word you left out? the ONLY word that mattered? EXTREMIST. That word being omitted creates two completely different posts with two very different meanings. I don’t dislike or hate Muslims, or people of the Islamic faith. Ask my friends that are both. But then again you all knew that, but when you omit the word extremist you create a person that doesn’t exist and have a story with traction, even if it is a complete lie.
This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious. I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.
See here’s the thing. I do NOT care what color you are, what race, what sex, who you sleep with, what you wear. I don’t care and I never have. I have opinions, but they’re just that, opinions. And opinions are like buttholes, everyone has one and they usually stink.
You know how I know you ‘offended’ people are full of crap? Because I’m not even close to any of the things you so desperately want me to be, so you can whine.
I’m loud, I talk too much, I think I know more than I do, those and a billion other issues I know I have. Like everyone one of you I have flaws, but I’m ok with my flaws, they’re what make me, me. I thank the Lord for the life I’ve been given. A life interspersed and occupied by men and women who are gay, by people of all races and religions, by men and women who dress as the other, by men and women who’ve changed to women and men. Not one decision I’ve ever made about a person has anything to do with those things I just mentioned, nor will it ever.
You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.
YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.
There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer, whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.
But let me reiterate, I don’t care who, what, where or why you are who you are. I care about people and how they treat others. You will NEVER in your lives find a single person who’s met me/knows me who would ever say I treated them as anything other than a human. None.
Wouldn’t you assume that all of you offended folks would have heard of me treating people the way you needed me to treat them, to be what you so desperately want me to be?
If people want to create stories or impressions where there are none, and you want/need to get offended by them that’s on you.
But for now, if you want to be offended and have that offense be by something you THINK you interpreted or you THINK you heard, go for it.
But for the love of God stop making crap up, it’s boring and it’s stupid and there are actual causes that need attention such as homeless veterans and our archaic education system.
Two benefits of this I didn’t forsee. 1) Twitter has made their “Block” far easier to use 2) You find out who your friends are when folks create crisis about you, that actually aren’t.
Listen Curt Schilling is a pompous asshole. He pretty much admits that’s he’s a pompous asshole. He’s loud, obnoxious, opinionated etc. Sometimes I agree with him, sometimes I don’t. On this transgender issue I’m fairly neutral. I do think if you have a dick you should use the men’s room. If you don’t have a dick you use the ladies room. So Kaitlyn Jenner would be ladies. Guys running around at Jacques pretending to be ladies use the mens. So I think Curt sort of has a point here. It doesn’t mean I hate transgenders it just means I don’t think making 1 person comfortable should come at the expense of potentially making 3 other people uncomfortable.
But what constantly gets Schilling in trouble is he is so god damn extreme. Again if I had to pick sides in this restroom debate, I’d probably side with him, but that picture he retweeted screams hate. It screams all transgenders are freaks. That’s the message it conveys. Nobody was “hunting to be offended” He was trying to offend people. The reaction he got is exactly what I’d predict would happen.
Again I have no problem with him sticking by his guns and owning it, but he just can’t say if people get mad it’s their fault and they are the ones reading into it. Dude you posted it on twitter. This is the same guy who freaked out when people said crass stuff about is daughter on twitter and now he’s mad people are freaking out about the obnoxious/crass things he posted. You can’t have your cake and eat it to. Just be the obnoxious, loudmouth and own it. But don’t blame it on others.
PS – I’d have no problem if ESPN fired him. If they think his personal views reflect badly on them that’s their right as a company.
