Occasionally some of my old posts get comments on them. Most times these comments are spam, but otherwise they’re from someone who actually is trying to be engaging.
The other morning I saw I had 3 comments from one person on a snarky post I did on why I’m too old to go clubbing anymore.
Now, I definitely thought long and about whether or not I wanted to even waste my time and post about this.
Then, I realized I needed to.
It is NEVER okay to be intolerant of others. While my original post was whiny about being too old to be in a club, I hope it was not construed as me objectifying club-goers or my LGBT brothers and sisters. There are plenty of people who are toolbags whose sexuality has nothing to do with their clubbing behaviors.
When you comment on a blog of someone you do not know, do not judge them. Do not make assumptions based off of misconceptions and stereotypes. Do not justify your assumptions by apologizing and saying you thought someone was another assumption or stereotype.
Intolerance is the root of so many misunderstandings in the world. Do not be intolerant of others– open your minds to possibilities.
For the love of so much, please do not bring your intolerance to my blog. I may be a snarky piece of work, but I am a snarky piece of work who will gladly listen to others before making judgements. Leave your intolerance at the door, and know that this blog is welcoming to people of all races, religions, socio economic classes, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. Whether you’re a “straight girl” or a “toolbag lesbian,” I welcome you with open arms, as long as you have an open mind.
