Y’all are bound and determined to ruin social media for me.
First, I took a break from Twitter because it devolved into a pissing contest called us vs. them.
Then Facebook got into the act by people I’d known for decades spouting off opinions about the current political climate, then lambasting me for holding an opposing view. I’ve never loved the 30 day “time out” feature FB has so much!
Now it’s Instagram’s turn.
God help you if you hold opinions that aren’t what everyone else thinks, then express them in a public forum. I’ve been called everything from a snowflake, to delusional, to being “on the wrong side of history”.
If your country was being run by a clueless reality TV personality, wouldn’t you speak out?
What kills me are the sheer number of people who defend him. And yes, I realize that may mean some of you who are reading this.
My opinion should matter as a citizen of the United States, but total strangers have said I have no right to say my peace. The conservative Christians are the worst. They’re no more Christian than my cat, they just yell louder (kind of like my ex husband). In name only Christians, not Christ like in any way, except on Sundays. The other six days of the week, they’re loudmouthed, Bible thumping assholes.
I’m tired of people telling me my views don’t matter. They do matter. There’s this thing called the US Constitution, and the first amendment of said Constitution guarantees my right to free speech.
So, I’m going to continue to state my views on social media, because I no longer give a fuck what anyone thinks.
And I hope you read this before liking it.
I’m Stef, and this is where it’s @ !~
