I,m going to make this short and sweet. Look beneath the emblem.
I am not a troll. Okay, i'm not. But, I have been accused of being one on at least 3 occasions for daring to speak an unpopular opinion. From voicing my honest opinion on the Trayvon Martin Case or explaining why I don't happen to think that everyone from the South is an evil, redneck, racist, homophobe. I agree with the majority view point on this site on many things. I'm for same-sex marriage, I believe in a woman's right to choose, I believe chuch and state should be separate. So for the most part I enjoy the site however, it annoys me to no end when I voice my opinion on something, and it's not the popular view point, so I just get bombed with comments telling me I'm a troll or just HR my comment away. And it isn't that I can't handle people disagreeing with me. I can. I just don't like the assumption that if everyone on this site doesn't have the exact same opinion on everything, you're a shill for the right-wing. If you're wondering why I won't leave the site because of this it's simple; I agree with most things said on the site. However, I'm an individual, and am not particularly keen on having to label each of my opinions as "liberal" or "progressive" or "conservative", or anything else. I am liberal on some issues and conservative (at least more so than most on this site) on others. I don't like feeling that if I don't march the party line I'm somehow an evil anti-woman,black,gay,immigrant monster. This in no way applies to everyone on this site, I just had to vent and if you feel the way I do, I would be happy to hear your comments, hey, even if you don't agree with me. I know the fact that I felt the need to even makes this diary, will seems suspicious to some but, hey, I had to say what I had to say.
