I guess with all of the craft projects I have going on, and all of the little decorating sprees I’ve been doing… you would think I would have more to blog about. The problem is… well… I want to blog about controversial things – and at the same time I don’t.
I guess that is the problem with believing that every one is entitled to their own opinions, and sensitive at the same time. I don’t have a problem saying “I think xyz is right…” or with other’s saying “I think ABC is right!” It’s when there is some sort of conflict in between. When people can’t respect others’ opinions – I just can’t handle it.
I have strong feelings about a lot of things. Breastfeeding, being a stay at home mom, not supporting companies that openly discriminate against people, etc. But the thing is… those strong feelings really only apply to my life. I feel strongly that breastfeeding is the best thing for me and my baby. I feel that being a stay at home mom is the best thing I can do for my family. I haven’t eaten those yummy waffle fries in since before I was pregnant (over two years), because I do not support their business practices. This really has nothing to do with what other people do. In fact, when my Mom hopped in my car the other day with a nice cold lemonade it made me salivate and I almost stopped to get some for myself… until I realized I needed to zip home and let the dogs out. For the record I also don’t shop at a certain super center/grocery store with a smiley face logo because of their business practices.
I think my problem is that my facebook feed has become this long list of people talking about chicken sandwiches and it makes me hungry, which then puts me in a foul mood, partially because I’m hungry and partially because some people are just down right obnoxious. You’re gay? That’s nice. You’re not? Ok – that’s nice too. You bought chicken sandwiches just to support this business? Glad you’re standing up for what you believe in! You think I’m ridiculous for not supporting them? Well… hm. ok.
This turned into those darn chicken sandwiches.
Not where I meant to go.
I guess my point is – I’m scared to write about what I think on my own blog because I’m scared that other people will say mean things to me.
I guess I’m a bit of a wimp.
I’m also impressed by Grace over at her blog Opinionation. I find that I don’t always agree with what she writes, but am jealous that she can so openly voice her opinions. Part of my problem is that I personally know a lot of the people that read my blog, and I worry what they would think of me. Meh. In the mean time I will stick to baby pictures and home decor.
Have you blogged about chicken sandwiches or anything else controversial? Did you get meany comments? How do you deal with it?
