First of all... I continue to get responses from people in Knickers journal but I cannot reply to them,
so I'm keen to make my points here.
Knickers made a post today, after a day of back and forth'ing in my journal about the dog issue
and it went a little like "I've known this person for a long time and I've always liked him blah blah blah but now he's off on dogs and I want to clear up all the myths and lies he's saying about dogs." Or some rot like that... it was passive aggressive as far as I was concerned and I decided to respond to it.
This - no doubt - makes me a drama queen and a bad person...
And I just do not give a shit.
It was one of those "enough is enough" moments and I let it out.
You can trot out quotes from people I've never heard of who represent what can only be described as special interest groups on almost any subject you can imagine.
Statistics can be bent to look like any opinion or proof you want to make and when you get right down to it... all I was doing was saying I fucking hate that breed of dog, and I'm glad the province I live in has seen fit to ban them after hundreds of attacks.
I realize that all dogs can attack.
But I would rather be attacked by a wide assortment of dog breeds besides a pitt bull.
But when a punk ass poodle attacks you.... and it can really hurt, bite through skin etc...
And you can reach down and break it's fricking neck or pull it's teeth out - if you want to be gross and graphic about it.
Bottom line... if a pitt attacks you... you can kiss your ass good bye because it's gonna win.
And the chances are, if it bites you when it's really pissed off ... then it's not gonna let go.
Now... forget all that crap for a minute...
Paying tribute to the apparent truism... "If you want to trim your friends list... insult dogs."
I watched a few bail today. Fine. This garners a great big bag of whatever.
However.... one "departer" left with the comment that it appears I am not tolerant of other peoples opinions.
And that is total crap.
Do you have any fricking idea how many comments and diverse opinions I get through this journal every week?
I get all kinds... believe me... and I have no problem with 99% of it.
If strangers want to show up and give me a hard time because they don't agree with my opinion... I'll even take a little of that.
BUT I GET TO RESPOND.
Just because I respond... is no reason to conclude I'm an intolerant boob.
I welcome contrary opinions and I enjoy a good debate.
If your a jack off, I'll be a dick head to you and then laugh about it as I walk away from my computer.
