Opinions Are Indeed Like "A-holes", I’m Really Just Concerned With My Own
I know there are times in our lives when we need some sort of expert advice but on the whole I think that people have way too many opinions about way too many things. I try to preface any opinion I’m going to give with a “from what I understand” because let’s face it, in this day and age no one reads an entire news story all the way through online so really, in most cases your opinion has been formed by the first 500 words or so that you’ve read on the topic. And if you’re like me, you don’t go seeking several articles online to compare the stories and decide what’s seems truthful and what isn’t, you just go with that first article you read and in a lot of cases you suddenly think you’re an expert yourself. Well I’m here to tell you that you are not and while I think listening to people with different opinions other than your own can be useful and mostly entertaining, the more I experience life and the more I grow up (despite my inner Peter Pan kicking and screaming all the way) I’ve discovered that opinions are indeed like assholes, I’m really just concerned with my own – Don’t Get Me Started!
I cannot believe all of the crap that people write in to me on this website. Some of it brings a smile to my face like when I discover that someone has literally laughed out loud reading something I wrote or has been moved but these comments are fewer than the ones where people tell me that I’m wrong for thinking what I think or that I’m going to hell for being a homosexual. I usually don’t let the negative comments get to me as they’re almost always misspelled or make little to no sense. (Never mind that the person typing to me seems to have never had to take a class where they taught punctuation) One of my all time favorites came in recently on one of my video blogs. It was just two words, “twat fag” now while some people might think that this was a slam of epic proportions to me, I just laughed and then started thinking what that could possibly mean? Hmmm, twat meaning the “female genitalia” and fag meaning “gay.” Oh my god, they think I’m a lesbian! J
The people who get me are the ones who go on and on quoting the bible to me and a recent person wrote in to tell me that homosexuality is a “behavior” and not really something your born with like green eyes or being black so they suggested (rather strongly) that for the sake of civilization and for Jesus that I choose not to “do” the “behavior” and equated giving me as an “acting homosexual” rights of marriage and equality in this country like the ability to serve in the military, etc. is really just like giving an alcoholic a drink. It would condone and encourage me to continue down a path that doesn’t make sense from the standpoint that God made man and woman to fit together to procreate, blah, blah, blah. (Though she’ll need to explain the blow jobs and anal sex to me because it would seem to me that everything fits together like the correct puzzle pieces being put together and when you do this correctly, when you’re done it looks just like the picture on the box!) I guess she didn’t want to “enable” me so she suggested I stop the behavior and get going with my God wants me to bang pussy behavior which to her was the natural progression of God’s handiwork. Really?!? I mean, really?!? Then explain to me why I’ve been attracted to people of my same sex since birth. I don’t think that God is giving me a “test” he’s only administering to one in ten people on the planet. And what’s more I don’t believe that your truth is the only truth out there in the world for everyone, lady. Sure you claim to have a personal relationship with Jesus and I’m sure he tells you things that he doesn’t tell the rest of us during your “personal” times but that could be a lot like when I was a kid and played with the Quija board with my neighbor. He was moving the pointer the entire time much like you telling yourself stuff that you claim Jesus is telling you.
I don’t think everyone in the world should be Jewish like me or gay like me but I sure as hell don’t think that everyone needs to believe in the big JC or whatever the church is that has the most money to sell their message to the people. I get it, you want to live your life according to a book written a thousand years ago by men, not God, men so have at it and enjoy yourself. Honestly, I won’t complain about it until you tell me that it’s the way I have to live too because misery loves company. I want to live my life according to my life experiences, making mistakes and having successes and having opinions about all of it. Sure I want to believe in the teachings of those who came before us but I also want to exercise my God given right to come to my own conclusions. So feel free to write into me and tell me all about what you’ve interpreted from a book that was written a bazillion years ago and how you’ve used it to guide your life. Good for you. But don’t expect me to fall in line with you simply because your opinion is the only one that you think counts. You need to know that opinions are indeed like assholes, I’m really just concerned with my own – Don’t Get Me Started!
