Political correctness = censorship!

Cancel culture = censorship!

Shouting down those with different points of views = censorship!

Forcing colleges to drop speakers because you don't agree with their point of view = censorship!

Facists believe in censorship!

 If you don't like a particular show or website or commentator or comedian or song or poem or book or play or  lifestyle....then practice self censorship.  Don't tell me what I can or can't read, watch, listen to, talk to, have sex with.

It's time to crawl out of your mommy's womb and join the world. The world is a tough hard place. You will experience things that you don't like, don't want to see or hear. But you will have to deal with them.... as an adult. But you don't decide what's for me! That's my right! Just as I have no right to decide for you.

The world can also be a beautiful experience. But you must have experiences to appreciate what is out there. 

I've been fortunate enough to travel to different parts of the world. To talk with people from many countries, many different age groups. Sometimes we agreed. Sometimes we didn't. Sometimes we argued.  But I always respected that person for believing in his or her ideas.  Not once would I ever tell someone they shouldn't say something because it wasn't correct. I've said things that might not be correct, but so fucking what. Life goes on. The earth will still spin on it's axis. The sun will rise in the morning.

I believe in fighting the good fight. I believe in fighting injustice in peaceful productive means. And I also believe that no one has the right to tell me to curb my freedom of speech, freedom of the written word, or freedom of thought.

Censorship would never be needed if good judgement and showing respect for others was the norm.
