… is like competing in the special olympics. No matter who wins, you’re still retarded. That’s not a really nice sentiment, and I have the utmost respect for anyone who’s living with a disability of any kind – but it sortof fits.
I was reading the weblog of this girl the other day, and after that entry, I posted a comment that went something like this:
“Everyone has family issues, some stronger than others – but I find it incredibly sad that in these troubled times you can’t even find peace at home. Or perhaps nailpolish is more important in your world.” Not that I’m out protesting – but I do value peaceful resolutions.
The nailpolish thing was a bit scathing I know, but nothing out of the ordinary for anyone who knows me and my temperment. As I was going through my usual pack of weblog reading again, I came across this lovely gem – and found my earlier comment had been erased.
Not that I really care what the internet world thinks of me – but I just think it’s really silly to post a weblog, have comments enabled, and then get upset if anyone says anything controversial in them. Isn’t that sortof the whole point of the weblog phenomenon? Dialogue?
And just to be clear – I welcome any and all controversy here. Absolutely no comments will be erased. That’s what free speech is all about.
