Well, I did it. I went and got myself involved in a debate on Live Journal that is probably going to devolve into a flame war. Damnit. See, here’s the deal. I read the community for the Something Positive web comic. Earlier today someone posted a link to a post that was made in the childfree community.
I’ve expressed my feelings on this community in the past. Despite their objections to the contrary, I find the majority of the posts here to be mean-spirited, nasty, and rude – even though I have been told repeatedly that my child would not be the object of scorn there.
Why, you ask, is this the case? Well, I’ll show you. I’m going to post something here from the above post with the language slightly changed.
We feel about our pets the way most people feel about those jigaboos.
Radical? Yeah, maybe. I’ll own up to possibly being a bit too thin skinned about this particular issue. I just don’t see any difference in it, personally.
I’d write more about this, but I’m working and it’s already taking too much of my time on the original thread. See the rest of my logic there, if you’re interested.
Post about real life stuff and the rescue of a duck later…stay tuned…
