I’ve always had my opinions, it wasn’t until I was in college that I really became opinionated. I’m not judgmental at all, don’t think I am please. But I have so many opinions and so many people who judge ME that I’ve gotten so frustrated!
For one, Pit Bulls. There is a ban in my province against Pit Bulls. This annoys me on so many levels. You talk to a vet in any province, they will tell you that while a pit bulls bite is painful, they are LESS likely to bite of the owner if the owner TRAINS the dog. Is it that hard to get through people’s heads that BAD OWNERS MAKES FOR A BAD DOG… Oh my heavens people! You should hear the arguments that a pit bulls bite is really bad. Well no duh. But if you train your dog properly, then they won’t bite. What a world shaking advocate eh?
Next, politics. Okay I get that people are allowed their own parties or people they want to run their country. But in order to make an INFORMED decision, isn’t it best to look at BOTH sides? (or in the case of Canada, ALL sides)… I’ve never been so ashamed to be Canadian than I am today. Our Prime Minister is destroying the country. He put us in a DEFICIT within a YEAR of being PM. SERIOUSLY?! Plus in March, he dunked us further into debt by $30 Billion! Does anyone care where this money is going? It’s going to fighter jets and his personal lawyer because he’s being sued. He’s allowed already dead animals to be transported to a slaughterhouse and be used for human consumtion. He’s closed an immigration office in Buffalo which will slow down all immigration visas(This is personal to me, because my husband is American and immigrating here). AND Thanks to the budget they passed, he cut $35 billion out of our health care system. I’m just ready to throw up my hands and say “Where the hell did my country go?!”
Third, religion. I do NOT force my religion on anyone. No matter what. But people either see me talking about religion or wearing something religious(Like my WWJD bracelet) as me doing so. Okay seriously? If you want to be misreble, go for it. Don’t try dragging me down. I’m quite happy being a obedient child of God and trying to learn more about him and the Bible. You want to be stupid and try to make me mad, go for it. Yeah I’ll get mad, but you won’t know it. I know the saying “Kill em with kindness”. I’ve had one person tell me that believing in God is like believing in the fact that the wind could be a ghost. I replied with “I’m glad you believe in something, I can’t imagine going through life without believing in something! God bless you!” … Yes I will say that. Yes I have the balls to say that. I don’t care. But what I DO care about is when someone starts bad mouthing me over something I didn’t do. I do not shove religion down your throat, don’t shove your atheist ideas down mine.
And finally, disability rights. Oh this one really gets on my nerves. People on the INTERNET, will get in my face about it (not really but they try to) and tell me I don’t know what it’s like to A) be disabled and/or B) feel depressed and suicidal. Really? Actually, I DO! What a shocker! I have MANY problems with me, and I don’t hide it. I’ve had depression, I’ve been on anti-depressants. It’s not something that I flaught or that I shove in someones face. I want to be that person who, if someone is going through depression, can look at me and think “If she can beat it, so can I”. And that’s the truth. I have a disablity but it’s not mental(Other than the depression), intellicual, or even very visible. I’m HEARING IMPAIRED. Please don’t confuse that with “dumb”. I am verbal. I can talk. I can hear, I just don’t hear as well as everyone else. I can do ANYTHING you can do(maybe better) I just can’t hear as well as you. That’s what grinds my gears the most. When people find out I am hearing impaired and assume I’m mentally challenged or stupid or mute. No. I’m not. I’m verbal, I can hear, I am very intelligent and can hold an intelligent conversation. Don’t believe me? Try being civil with me and I will be right back to you.
Fin. Thank goodness!
