Why I Hate Censorship

The internet has been abuzz about the government wanting to pretty much censor what we say or do on the internet. If they do this, they will be taking away our freedom of speech and the freedom to be who we really are and say what we really feel!!

Why do I hate censorship so much? Well, I don't like to be told what I can and cannot say, what I can and can not read, or what I can and can not listen to. Why should just one person or even a few people have the right to choose what is right and wrong for millions of people? Just because one person is offended by something, does not mean that everyone else in the world feels the same way.

Who cares about curse words? If you do, then you need to get the carrot out of your ass and lighten up. Words are words. Who all of the sudden decided that it was OK for someone to see butt, but not ass? To say,  poop, instead of shit? Ok, you can say sexual intercourse but you can't say Fuck! Why not? What makes one word so much worse than another when it means the same thing? Who decided which words are bad and which ones are alright??

I don't get offended easily, but a lot of people do. Guess what? Not everyone in the world agrees with you. Relax and enjoy life. I don't know if this is true or not, but I just heard of a school that changed their mascot of a Cougar, because they didn't want to offend older women. Seriously? I hope this was fake, but come on, people bitch about anything. I think some people enjoy bitching and complaining or causing drama. Maybe it makes them feel superior, who knows? People get offended way too easily.
