Things that piss me off #1: generalizations

Someone made a comment about my blog today that really pissed me off. It wasn’t the fact that they didn’t like my style. As they put it, to each his own. What pissed me off was they made a statement basically stating that MOST people would be put off by vulgarity. Really, because I have yet to meet a person who didn’t find The Dave Chapelle Show piss your pants funny. See how I did that. I said “I” haven’t. Look, when you’re giving an opinion, speak for yourself. Don’t use words like “most”, or “all”. Unless you got facts to back you up, or speaking about the obvious, then all you’re doing is talking out of your ass. And if you’re talking to someone who is intelligent enough to see through the bullshit, then you’re just setting yourself up to be embarrassed. People are too individually unique to ever be generalized or stereotyped. Watch how you say things, because in the words of my boy Abe Lincoln, “It’s better to be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt”.

About iicents

I am who I am. Who I am has been forged in the fires of trials and the steel of tribulations. Built strong enough to strike a fearsome blow upon life, but sturdy enough to handle the recoils of hardship that it brings. I am a product of my mistakes, wrapped in a vessel of understanding. I know that the future is mine to mold and the past is ONLY a reminder of the events that have shaped me. I am of unique design that nothing earthly could ever alter or duplicate. Grateful. A troubled soul still searching for peace within. My road may be long, and my journey is grueling. But the blanket that comforts me is knowing that I am a capable traveler. This is my definition. This is who I AM. View all posts by iicents
