On Twitter recently, I was accused of being a racist and a homophobe.
I KNOW RIGHT ?
I RT’ed a tweet that I thought was funny, even though I didn’t totally agree with the part about the only offenders being “the left.” I don’t care what side you lean to, there are hypocrites in EVERY demographic, and that’s the message I was trying to get out, with the RT and a follow up or two.
WTF? Racist ? Oh yes, I’ve totally been found out in my invisible white hooded robe. Whatever. I was RT-ing a tweet found funny and ironic, especially considering that I consider all people who do that kind of thing giant douche bags, whether they are left, right, independent, or black, white, pick the pigment of your choosing, gay, straight, bi or like to hump pillows and lick toads. If you claim to have an open mind and don’t, you’re a turd. WE ALL LABEL PEOPLE IN SOME WAY. It’s practically impossible not to. But was I being racist? I don’t think so. Am I homophobic? Uh, HELL NO.
In fact, I ate this CHOCOLATE cupcake with RAINBOW sprinkles immediately after the offending outburst to soothe my nerves. What racist homophobe would do such a thing?
IT WAS FABULOUS.
And I won’t lie, I WAS MAD. The whole thing really chapped my ass, especially since the accuser was someone I really liked and respected, and who I thought was pretty open to discussion. According to several of our mutual friends who contacted me after the discourse, he is not tolerable of those who disagree with him.
Perhaps he should try to adhere, as I do, to this ;
“I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” – Thomas Jefferson
You wanna know my politics? Read this.
You wanna liken me to a racist homophone? Bitch please. You don’t know me.
I’m sure lots of my friends would agree with me.
