“When you have strict censorship of the internet, young students cannot receive a full education. Their view of the world is imbalanced. There can be no true discussion of the issues.” ~ Ai Weiwei
“The first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

I don’t want to plant my seeds into the soil of censorship. I’ll only ultimately end up with a rotten harvest.
I so understand how some things get a little rough out there in this cruel world. However, that should not change the
write right to ones self expression. Whether someone else likes it or not, there are some unsavory words and points of views out there that others might find offensive. These type of offended individuals reserve the right to simply look away; if they so choose to do so.
I make every attempt to utilize my own self-censorship mechanisms. I do not require someone else doing it for me. However, if I choose to use the word Fuck – (👈 oops… I just did 😉) – I certainly will do so. I also reserve the right to use words like fluffy and pillow. Albeit, some extremely oversensitive and insecure individual might get butt hurt for me simply referring to something that I lay my head upon when I go to sleep.
BTW – Is everyone going to be okay? Seriously… Did anyone get physically hurt by my choosing to use such harsh words? Did seeing the “F” word burn your eyeballs? How about your mind? Do you think that it’s going to be okay? I sure hope so. I might be able to arrange some very affordable therapy sessions if the need arises.
The society of our present day downright scares me anymore…
Extremely thin skinned and rather violent towards each other. Sad at best.
If anyone needs anything, you can find me in my safe space. Where ever that is.
