Proof!

Yesterday I posted an article called ‘Freedom Of Speech’, and I was happy to see that somebody took up the challenge to write out their own opinion. However, the essay was very clearly aimed towards me and I will respond in kind with another essay of my own.

In ‘Freedom of Speech Revisited’ (https://www.booksie.com/590238-freedom-of-speech-revisited) there is the accusation of running away from a discussion. I quote: ‘Don’t invite people to a debate and then run away. Don’t tell people that you have positions when you have mindless opinions.’ First, I don’t run away; I am on Booksie for probably more hours a day than any other member. I also respond to comments which is more than the author can say. And what about his positions, are they not mindless opinions too?

There is one thing that I really want to thank the author for, and that is for providing undeniable proof that misogyny is alive and well and thriving in a certain part of American society. I quote: ‘If you can’t compete with the big boys, maybe you should be putting together some recipes or stories about puppies.’ Misogynistic or what?

Donald Trump would be proud of you!

Small minds in little boys are a mirror to the society they're surrounded by. There's a time to be upset by someone's opinion, and when it's so seriously malformed and ignorant, there's no sense in deeming it of any kind of worth. Let the ants walk through the dirt, Hully! You keep on flying!
A solid rebuttal! Maintaining your composure and keeping the sting in your words. :) Nicely done!
