Case in point, I recently did a post on here "Friends and Fans Summer Beer Pic's" This was a very popular
|The offending photos, is it really "offensive"? I don't think so|
warrant the time to sit, and let me know how they felt. They felt this was "off topic" had nothing to do with beer, they felt I was using boobs as a cheap way to gain hits to my blog (I wasn't, but its not a bad idea....). They felt I was being lazy, and immature. One of the respondents even went so far as asking me how I would feel if my 12 year old son saw what I posted? (for one, I don't have a 12 year old son, I do have a 12 year old daughter however, and my first question to her would be "what the heck are you doing surfing beer sites at 12 anyway?) Trust me, if your 12 year old boy wants to see boobs on the internet, and he is looking at my blog, he's an idiot. There are far better places to see them then on this site, trust me, just Google image search for "boobs" and see what happens.
My question, when did people become so thin skinned? Why do we take offense to everything? Even if we do see something offensive, why do we feel the need to address it with that person? I love beer, I find nothing offensive about it. Yet, I've worn my "Respect Beer" t shirt in public, and more then once, have had people snicker at it, or even make a comment about how beer is destructive, should be more sensitive. To whom? For what? You don't like it, I do, but I have to alter the way I live, because you are too weak to handle my lifestyle choice? What a wimp.
Why does the "offended" seem to have all the power these days anyway? Why is the "offender" automatically the guilty party? Just because you are offended, doesn't mean you right. Nor does it grant you any right over anyone else to even suggest that the person you find offensive act or do anything any differently, simply because you are offended by what they do, or say, or wear.
|Is this offensive? Some say yes.|
To my loyal fans and readers, I thank you for your support, and your open mindedness, and tolerance. This makes me really thinking I should do that "beer and boobs" photo piece now I've always teased about, what do you think, would that be insensitive? Yeah, I didn't think so, so send me your beer and boobs photos!!!
Remember folks, its just beer....
Beer should be fun, lets make sure we keep it that way
Until next time
Bottoms up my friends...
