I Actually Do Care

I'm subscribed to this certain blog and I can't even remember why I started reading it in the first place. The young lady is...a douche bag, to say the least. I mean, I have my moments where I might come across as uncouth but every blog she writes is just rude as hell. It is almost like if your opinion does not coincide with hers, you're a damn idiot. It's one thing to write from your perspective and for people to feel that, it's something entirely different to be on some "eff you" type shat even when you comment. When it comes to factual information, I stand by it, especially when I can readily provide you with proof. If you choose to ignore it at that point, hey, it's your library of smarts you're choosing to short. But opinions? Ehhhh...

If you ask me who are my favorite musical artists and I tell you, then you reply that my selections should NEVER qualify as top anything because they suck....yeah, that's YOUR opinion and THIS is what I classify as douche bag behavior. If you ask me if I think we live in a post racial society and I say no, then you tell me I'm wrong and I'm fixating on the past, this is you being a jackass. You see how my answer wasn't an opinion but really a fact? Granted, you are entitled to think otherwise about factual information (like people who insist the earth is flat) but you can't be offended when people call you a dumb ass.

So all of my rambling leads up to this because I actually do care...does my writing come across as douchebaggery? Sure, your responses will be filed as OPINIONS but it helps to know what my audience thinks. I do recognize my faults whether I state them to others or not so consider this more of a self-check type blog :)

Damn, the one time i'm available to comment when I read (meeaning i didnt read from google reader)...and there's really not much to add or put my 2 cents about...except that I agree...and i think i know who the magnimus opius dochelordess is...

Rae: LOL you're a clown; I'll DM you on Twitter

ChoC: I'll BBM you; the blog is so random (for me) that I'm not sure you would pinpoint this one LOL

jeanette nicole* said...

Just as you ask us to be fair & civil in our commenting, your replies are as such. No douchelording over here. Haha!

DLG said...

Nah, I think you're pretty respectful in the way you say what you think. Even when you're venting & calling people assclowns lol, you still leave the floor open for disagreement, which is why I like reading your blogs.

AssertiveWit said...

jeanette: thank you for the feedback :)

DLG: I like healthy conversations; I hate rude fucks who want to disagree just to see you get upset. I pay attention to how people interact on things they don't agree with and it makes me feel like some folks should have been forced to be on the debate team in school. So many people try to convince you that their opinion is a fact and that's when the arguing starts. Thank you for the feedback!

always4evamoi said...

you? douchebag?? NOOO! i love reading what you have to say and even when you have your 'moments' lol, you still allow us to have our opinions....
still a loyal fan lol...

Relevantlystaying said...

Nope. No douchery.. But, traditionally we have similar view points so that might not be the best assessment. Regardless, I think you are fair when responding to people.

Miss Harvey said...

I love your blog, your perspective and your writing. You always present "common sense" (even though we know sense isn't common, in a true Synitta way. There are enough people who love and appreciate your gift. For everyone else who can't handle it, don't read it. My two cents, for the people.

*stacie-ann said...

i dont really have anything witty to say.

except , your written never comes off as 'doucebaggery' (lmao@that word. *stores it in the vocabulary box*).

im curious about this blogger tho'....

AssertiveWit said...

Thanks for the feedback!

Jenny Brown said...

OMGosh....I started reading the first couple lines and I'm like - who the 'freaks' she talking about (not me, I hope).....you got my attention from the start and kept my interest until the very end.........and...You, a douche-bag .... I THINK NOT!......Some ladies just don't have any class ......hellloooo.......

I love reading your blog! (By the way!)

RAVEN said...

It had never occurred to me that a female can be called a douchebag, too. im glad it's acceptable, because 'bitch' just doesn't hit low enough in the description of some gals.

Welcome To Camelot said...

I try not to be douchebaggy, but sometimes, i fail...miserably. I hope i'm not that blogger! It was a joke, i swear!
Anyway, you're not a douche bag. Nice blog :)
klkenned

AssertiveWit said...

Jenny: it most certainly isn't your blog LOL

Raven: I use ALL insults fairly; no sexism over here! LOL

Camelot: glad you have a blog I can follow! You aren't the blogger either LOL I don't mind "take it or leave it" perspectives. However, I do feel some kind of way about people who want to tell me my opinion is wrong when it isn't a fact based topic we are discussing. By all means correct me when I am saying something wrong but leave me and my opinions alone. LOL

I'm open to discussing anything and friendly debates are definitely welcome. However, when people act like assclowns because there is a stage and they believe they have an audience? I'll definitely pass

JenDay said...

I like how you referred to her as a young lady anyway. As if.

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
