Then I was alerted to a mom that's a blogger that got so much hate mail and nasty comments when she guest posted that she nearly shut down her own blog.
inconceivable? not in blog land.
Then I was told about the mom who had lost her baby and was being bullied and tortured with people even calling the coroner and arranging a protest at the funeral for her baby.
a choice. both of them a choice.
Neither of these woman made hateful, mean or malicious choices, but instead chose to express their right to love and parent in the matter that was their own. Yet they were both attacked. Virtually time and time again.
I remember the time someone made ugly comments about a preemie baby who had passed as a toddler.
The entire internet blew up supporting this family. Through their grief they created an amazing legacy for their little one.
Here's my thing, what caliber person do you have to be to spew hate, anger, righteousness, and your way or no way thinking? You fight for acceptance yet you do such wretched things I literally gag when I see the shit you spew. Stop your screaming from the rooftops for the rights and freedoms of the group de jour.
And be a freaking human. I am disgusted with people right now not all of them, and I certainly will not go around leaving nasty comments on their blogs.
So STOP IT damn it.
We are so busy fighting and arguing , enforcing our soap boxes, that we forgot the golden rule. Treat others as you wish to be treated. No labels just be humane to each other.

I consider her a real friend, even though we have never met ( that we know of) and we do disagree on many things, Respectfully. Because we are grown ups, and have more in common than we have differences.
here's a little diddy for you- the word bigot is defined as- a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own.
Who exactly is showing intolerance?
