Hi and welcome to the chicken blog. Where we talk about chicken and chicken things 24/7.
No. No we don’t. Except right now.
There is damn chicken talk in the comments, on my facebook page, on twitter, out my window. POLLO AY CARUMBA.
But seriously, in that last post, I’m just glad you all didn’t jump on the Penn State train. I couldn’t have handled that on top of chicken drama. So I’d like to move on. I have to say that for the most part, I’m proud of everyone. We were able to have an intelligent debate about a serious issue without any serious mud slinging. I will say that I feel stronger than ever about the following:
1) Equal rights for all. Dudes, marriage sort of blows some of the time. If the gays want in on that, let them. And if you personally believe that that goes against your values, then don’t marry a gay. But let them worry about their own consequences. You can shake your head at them from your angel cloud. Also we were married by our insurance agent. Just saying.
2) Freedom of speech. I mean, I write a blog about mostly poop and clothes. I need that right. But I really want to stress to everyone that I’m not upset by what anyone has “said” about anything. I am however bothered by any corporation donating bags of gold and rubies to hate based organizations. You all can scream to the moon about chicken and gays and it’s fine with me. But it’s the action behind the words where I draw the line.
3) Freedom of religion. I thank my cats and Britney everyday that I have the freedom to not have religion and you have the freedom to force your husband to go to church every Sunday. It means just as much to me to not follow organized religion as it means to you be boys with the big J. I’m down. And that freedom also extends to those who want to follow the bible to the shrimp hating letter and those who want to just live life as a good person but maybe eat shrimp, get tattoos and marry a sparkle gay.
4) Chick fil a will make you fat. Remember that gays. Sometimes I wish the Jelly Belly company would hate short Italian girls so I could lose a damn pound. Consider it a blessing in disguise.
But the one thing I’m glad that came out of this is that I’m not super fearful to express a controversial opinion anymore on this blog. Almost a year ago today I posted my mildly famous breastfeeding post. And in the comments I was devastated to have to fight for the right of women to breastfeed in public against those who said they were “rubbing in their faces”. That sort of scarred me. But my skin has thickened to the thickness of a nice meaty chicken nugget. And I feel confident again.
So just like everything else, we’ll move on from this debate. I learned a lot about both sides and I’m glad we had this talk. This is a good community of bitches.
