fact: if you watch american idol, you're braindead and a drain on society.
fact: if you aren't a vegan, you're an asshole who supports animal cruelty.
fact: if you drink or smoke or stay out late or in any other way indulge, you're a trainwreck with no direction.
fact: i hear complaints and read nonsense tweets, facebook statuses, and blog posts like this every fucking day. here's a fact for ya: just because you say "fact" before making a heinous general statement does not mean your opinion is worth more than anyone else's. including mine.
so here are some facts of my own:
you are totally entitled to your opinion. i'm also entitled to mine. and we are absolutely entitled to agree to disagree, right? and to have different tastes in music and hobbies and different beliefs. so you're better than me because... why exactly? i can't help but think you sitting your vegan, gaga-hating, boring ass up on that high horse and looking down on us little shitheads who live differently than you do negates some of your holiness... no?
celebrate yourself. go right ahead! you should be proud of the choices that you make in your life, you should be pleased with yourself for sticking to your plan. it is your prerogative to praise yourself for making what you think are the right choices - for you. i just can't really see why the people who make different choices should be shit all over for making the choices that, while they are different from yours, are right for them.
fact - we are different. all of us. and your sweeping generalizations preceded by an atrociously false claim of truth do nothing to make your life more valuable than mine. keep your "facts" to yourself and i'll keep my marlboro lights and american idol favorites to myself, okay? i'll still have a hearty conversation and cup of coffee with you. unless, of course, you want to judge me for indulging in corporate conformity because i happen to like the taste and convenience of dunkin donuts coffee?
note: this is not about any one person in particular, but if you think i'm talking about you, you're probably correct and might want to think about not being so friggin arrogant.
