This is Offensive

Warning: I may very well piss you off. In fact, I probably will.

I don't really end up conforming to a certain set of political beliefs. I'm not liberal. I'm not conservative. Here's my take on some of the most prominent differences:

  1. I think citizens should be allowed to carry guns. I don't think it should be nearly as difficult as it currently is to get a permit.
  2. I think abortion should be up to the woman. She is the one who has to carry the fetus inside of her for nine months.
  3. I don't think teenagers should have to have parental consent to get a condom or The Pill.
  4. I think minors should have to have parental consent to get an abortion, unless they're emancipated (since it's a surgery).
  5. Politicians' religious views (and/or their homophobia) should not be brought into the legislative process, dammit.
  6. I think people should be able to marry whatever gender suits them (male/male, male/female, female/female- it doesn't matter).
  7. Reverse-discrimation is not the solution to racism.
  8. Immigrants (here's a shout-out to Costa and Louis!) shouldn't have such a hard time gaining legal citizenship. This should be as simple as signing up for the SAT. Get Mexico to cooperate. Make sure they pass the test. Make sure they aren't a felon. BOOM. Citizenship.
That's all I can think of now. If I think of any more, I may add to this and create a series.


  1. Hey, as surprising as it might sound, I happen to agree with...let's see... yep. Every point of yours expressed here!

    Cool! And here I thought I was all fringe and cool being a libertarian like I am. ;)

    On a more serious note, well-said! Very articulate. If more people would put a little bit of thought into their opinions (political or otherwise) I think this country and world in general would be a much better place for it.

  2. You sound exactly like my friend Joshua.

    On a separate note, thank you. Here I was thinking I was all alone when it came to my political tendencies :)

  3. Wow! When I read the title I was sure I would be offended, untill I read tbe post and agreed with every point! :)

  4. Note that the people I *did* offend didn't bother leaving comments- instead, they emailed me. Shit's weak.

    Glad to know I didn't offend you! :)
