HE’S ON THE INTERNET! OUR INTERNET! HOW DARE HE EXPRESS A DISAGREEABLE OPINION!?!

Seriously though… why is this behavior lauded from people in creative fields of the arts – writing, music, art – and yet applauded coming from actors?

Seriously, one of the biggest factors in my decision to live outside the US was ridiculous bipartisan squabbling.

And yet, nobody minds worshiping grandstanding assholes like Sean Penn as though they’re renowned scholars of political studies. PROTIP: People don’t major in drama because they were getting bored at their MENSA meetings.

Anyway, personal peeve.

While it’s always sad to see someone express an idea, and then deviate into catty retorts rather than rhetorical debate… welcome to real people. It gets easier to stomach over time. A trick I’ve found? Treat OMG SERIOUS debates about politics and religion with the attitudes you’d take to approach debates about sports.

We live in a day and age where everyone’s opinion MATTERS, everyone is a unique and special snowflake, and what offends me simply MUST be offensive on some broad scale that YOU don’t understand. Choose a side and live within those bounds, or blow them off completely, and lose face.

I’d rather walk on coals than eggshells, personally… but to each his own.
