Totally Get It Now
"As a pet lover, I am outraged by this article about a dog being killed by a hunter."
"As an actor, I am appalled at how many untalented people there are on TV."
"As a woman, I think it's sexist to comment on another woman's boobs."
"As a Jehovah's Witness, I will not be celebrating my birthday."
"As someone who never promotes themselves, please check out this play I am in."
"As a human being, I breathe oxygen."
As someone who loves shorter sentences I think prefacing a thought isn't generally important in most cases."
So, I spend some time on the Facebook, social networking, etc. As such, I come across many people's public thoughts. This is what happens when you are on Facebook. So I can't complain when I see messages like the ones I see above. But I'm starting to get a little tired of when people justify themselves constantly. I mean, I get it. You have a belief or a thought. Is it because of your profession or religion? Maybe, but if I know you, I already know that about you. Even if I don't, I'm not going to question your opinion. "Whoa whoa whoa... what do you MEAN you don't like litterers? Oh, you should have said 'As an EARTH LOVER...' because I totally didn't get that! Man, do I need extra clues to understand the basis of your opinion."
And as a blogger, I like to write about how I feel.
