    Meant To Be Different: Seeing Through Our Own Looking Glass

    My perspective on people and the world has changed vastly. I no longer looks at things the same. I used to be closed minded and a little judgmental because I grew up in a household where we didn't step out of the borders of God. I grew up accepting the other peoples' perspectives...

    I Do Have a Right to My Own Opinions, Here They Are:

    This story was inspired by all the people, online and offline, who seem to like me... then hate me when they realize where I stand on certain things.    So, here's where I stand on a ton of different issues.  Love me or hate me for my opinions, it's fine...

    "i Don't Want To Hear Your Views"

    The way some people respond to debate and reasoning just infuriates me.  For example - If some of my friends are trying to convince me of a point, and I consistently and correctly prove all their arguments to be nonsensical, they eventually just give up and label me as...

    Do Not Defend The Rep.of Your Country, Thats Not Allowed...

    It makes me so infuriated when I come across groups that have a very strong political view, that may contain things that are so untrue it is not funny. Even if they are slagging off the country you love and call home. Don't express an opinion. That is not allowed. And if you...

    Glorification Vs. Support
