Note to reader: The following post is ONLY about me getting out my own personal feelings and thoughts about this situation nothing more nothing less.
Dear reader those of you who have been with me since I started this blog(about 4 years ago now) know that I did it so that I could have a place to vent about anything that was bothering me.
I try my best to be as open and real with you about whatever I’m feeling/going through (at the time of writing the post) and why.
Over the last few days of being on Twitter (@BookNerd0486 if you want to say hi to me that way) and seeing how different people with disabilities feel about certain things, some of which I personally disagree with for various reasons I’ve seen a lot of people saying that if you disagree with someone or you’re not personally offended by the thing(s) that they are then you are in their words saying that they are wrong to be offended and that whatever they are offended by is ok, I think that argument is B.S.
What is really scaring me about this situation is the fact that I’m seeing a lot of people having their YouTube channels or other things taken down/away because of the fact that a few people disagree with them.
This blog is currently self-hosted so as long as I pay for it I don’t have to worry about a company taking it down (I know that anything can happen though) I just don’t want someone to take away this blog from me just because they disagree with my opinion(s).
I love the support that you guys have/continue to show me dear reader and you guys mean a lot to me however having a place to vent my thoughts is the most important part of having this blog I’ve never been so afraid to say how I feel about things online before. I know that I have the freedom of speech however I also know that people/companies(like Twitter) have the freedom to report things that the disagree with and it seems like it only takes a few people complaining about whatever they are offended by to get Twitter to take away your account or make you delete tweets that people have complained about.
I’ve seen it happen a lot to a guy named Harmful Opinions on Twitter and YouTube. I don’t like/agree with many of the things that he says but he has made me think about a lot of different things and I wouldn’t want to take away his right to say his opinions.
I just wish that people would disagree with people without trying to take away their platform or their jobs.
Thanks again so much for staying on this journey with me dear reader ♡.
