Here we go again. People are rude. Sarcastic. Judgemental. Nasty. Vile. And people are cowards too. Do I need to spell it out? Yes, I do apparantly. Again and again.
If you have a viewpoint, you’re welcome to it. I’d even like to hear it. But I’m listening for your opinion, your ideas, your thoughts. Not the vile trash that passes through your mind. If you need a place to vent these, as indeed do most normal human beings, find a friend, write a diary…hell, write a blog! Don’t come and dump your issues on me. Or indeed on my blog.
Mr. Eye-roller is someone who turned up on my blog yesterday and left behind his marks (here, here, here, here, here, here and here). First things first, I am immensely grateful to anyone who takes the time to read my writing. It is a pleasure, an honour to avail of your time…and I really mean this, no sarcasm.
However, I have an issue with rudeness, I really do. I am just not one of those serene people who can let it slide off me and let the world be the dump that it wants to be. I am also not polite enough to keep quiet about it.
So Mr.Eye-roller….I’m absolutely positive you’re male. You may intend me to think that you’re a woman but hell, no, no woman would actually say things like you have. Sure, I know not every woman feels and says things as strongly as I do about men, about life and love and relationships. But I also know that there is a semblance of rationale and genuine emotion in what I write. Whether I write well or not, I know it is something that almost all women are able to relate to. You obviously haven’t. And believe me, it isn’t because you’re male (I have at least some male readers)….its because you and I just don’t see eye to eye.
I still don’t have a problem with that. I totally respect people who have opinions that conflict with mine. I do, however have a problem when they try to force them down on me. I have a big problem when they attack me. I have a HUGE problem when they do it anonymously. And most of all, I have a really MASSIVE problem when they do it the way you have done.
Eye-roller, if you really believe what you are saying, come out in the open and speak to me again. Leave behind an email address and we’ll take this conversation offline if you prefer it that way. Or leave your comments behind, I promise I’ll publish them un-edited and respond. Just stop leaving behind anonymous nastiness like this. Its like entering someone else’s house and throwing mud around. Its basically creepy.
