I am open to discussion on virtually any comment and I can take most things in stride, but when someone has the mindset that they can judge or determine what kind of character I have based on what they feel I should or should not say in the context of open conversation, I have a tendency to either run that person into the ground or shut up as narrow minded people often don't have the intellectual fortitude to have an open discussion.
Most on here know that I am open to talk about any given subject (including my stands on religion and politics) but when someone refuses to accept that my theories on life are validated by MY LIFE that I have lived
and just because they are alternates to anothers life style they feel the need to tell me I am wrong for having them; this is where I draw the line in the sand. I might not like dead baby jokes, but I don't treat that person as having the bubonic plauge just for enjoying the style of humor. To me, the most offensive thing someone can do is to act like they are better than someone else because they feel that their individual lines of tolerance as to what is acceptable is better than yours.
