Usually I try to stay away from controversial topics. Both in my blog and in my "real life" conversations. I don't like to upset people. I tend to be overly sensitive so I try not to say anything that might hurt someone else's feelings. Until I feel really strongly about something. Then I get on my soapbox. I still try not to hurt any feelings but I just can't seem to swallow my disagreement.
Last year I avoided this topic because I know it will put me in the unpopular crowd. This is a topic that seems to send people into a fury and I am vastly outnumbered. I have been avoiding my blog because this has been weighing heavily on my mind and I know I can't write about anything else.
Finally here today I will break my silence.
First, though, a spoiler warning. If you have any young children you might want to stop reading this out loud. Turn your monitor. Protect them from the horror I am about to reveal.
Are they gone yet?
Ok, consider yourself warned.
Here it goes.
