Am I The Only One?

I have had a list of industry specific books to read and review lately and since they are not available to the public, I won’t put them on here. So instead I am just going to share my unsolicited opinion on some topics….waiting with bated breath, are you?

How about you just stay the hell off my page if you have a problem with what I post! Keep your opinion about my opinion I post on MY page to yourself! lol #DA #mindyourownfuckingbusiness #Yourethenarcissist:

I think I am probably one of the only people who routinely goes through their Twitter account and deletes followers. Why? First off it is hard to keep up with so many people and all of their people and on and on. ย I am not interested in getting followers just for the sake of numbers. I really need for you to have something in common with me. Books, Art, Music, Humor, and say hello once in a while, send me things you think I would like. And I do the same. If I follow you and you immediately DM me with all of your other sites and places I can buy your_______ ( fill in the blank). ย That is an instant Block!

hello

This weekend I did the same with my FB pages and accounts. Strictly because grown ass men and women that I grew up with and went from first grade to graduation with were jumping on 1. #boycottNFL bandwagon. Uh, no, I don’t think so. I don’t give a rat’s ass about what those players do as long as my Fantasy team kicks butt. And no one else seems to either. You should look up how many current players were convicted of felonies and are still playing most Sundays. And I waited way too long for football season. And 2. The Trump vs. Hillary topic. When you are calling the President’s mother and Hillary a whore, we have a problem. Unless being a whore is your profession, but this was used as a slur.

I don’t care where you stand on the political race, but name calling, especially calling women whores, is not okay. It makes me not like you and think way less of you than I already do. As my Momma would say, those people are ignorant and don’t have the vocabulary to express themselves in any other way.

I am fed up with it. We teach our children not to be bullies and name callers and yet we accept it and participate in it on television and in conversation. It’s embarrassing as a woman and as an American. I keep expecting the Queen to hop across the pond and put us all in a time out until we can get our shit together!

So to all of those people who live to do and say offensive things…mind your own business and if you can’t say something halfway intelligent, well then zip it.

As Nikki over at A Kinder Way says…be kind to everyone.ย hellokind

Thanks for listening and being kind! ย xxP

  1. Amen! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the shout out!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I could not agree more. I am NOT boycotting football over this. No one should be looking at the NFL for anything more than a fun…stress inducing…crazy time. These are not role models people. Nope.
    I love Fantasy Football too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I won last year and it brought me a ridiculous amount of joy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As for the politics..I honestly try to block it out, but I have to say…I’ve seen some down right shocking things and I’m a guys girl. There isn’t a prudish bone in my body. But wow.

    Great post. Will be sharing this tomorrow in my posts of note for sure! โค

  2. Extremely well said and I couldn’t agree more! Also, you’re not the only one who regularly cleans out Twitter followers and etc. And I refuse to follow back for follow’s sake, and I wouldn’t want anyone to do that to me either. In this day and age, we’re all so obsessed with the numbers: how many followers, how many likes, how many friends, etc. But there’s no substance in the numbers.

    This was a great post.
