Heaven forbid we talk about ourselves in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we state our opinions in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we post something that is not happy and fluffy, and is instead angry and argumentative in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we post something that someone on our F-list doesn't agree with, in our own journals.

Heaven forbid that we are not unfailingly polite in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we don't post what you want to see in our own journals.

This is my journal, my space, and I'm not forcing you to read. No really, you can scroll. Honest. That's what that little wheelie thing on your mouse is for. You can disagree, and comment to that effect, if you want to. Fostering discussion is a good thing. I enjoy having debates and discussions about things, I really do. I am not, however, going to change my mind, or my posts, to suit you.

I don't expect everyone to like or agree with what I post here, but I do expect that I be given the same courtesy as I would give you, which is that, you know, you have the right to your voice. I have the right to agree, disagree, or to simply not give a shit. It works both ways.

I'm not forcing you to comment either. You can, if you want to, but if you don't, I really don't care. It's up to you. I'm just here to write what think, and to do it in my own little corner of the interwebs. You're welcome to contribute, or not. Don't feel obligated to comment, just because I'm on your F-list. I don't comment on a post out of obligation, and I certainly don't expect anyone else to. It's up to you.

I F-lock the things I don't want everyone reading. I do have anonymous comments disabled, because I want people to own their words. I don't post and disable comments; it is not my intention to discourage discourse and discussion. I don't mind that, nor do I mind threadjacking. I like to see people talking about their thoughts and opinions, whether they agree or disagree with the subject at hand.

I have the right to my voice, in my space. You have the right to agree, disagree, or not give a shit. You do not have the right to attempt to silence me. You do not have the right to demand that I change or take down anything I post here. You do not have the right to insist that I post something I have not or will not post. Capiche?

I extend you this same courtesy, and I expect to receive it in kind.
