    I have a little bite to me.  I can say some off color things.  I have opinions.  I cross boundaries.  But I am AWARE.  While I am not always the most politically correct, I know where my boundaries are.  When someone is hurting, I don't sucker punch them with my words.  If...

    Why?

    Why do people judge you and make assumptions before they even talk to you? If you are thinking I'm something at least give me the courtesy to explain to me why you think that.
