How is my dashboard not full of Paul Walker right now?
So glad I just read the post Rou wrote about Ian, at least someone gets it! Bloody hell. It’s so annoying that people are so one sided on the situation… What he done was wrong, yes but there’s no need to be like “hang the bastard” or “give him a lethal injection” there may have been some kind of…
the thing is, this society is profoundly sick itself. we all want to point our fingers at people like ian watkins, put him on the other side of a very obvious line between them and us. we say, “how could something so outrageous ever happen?!” without asking the proper questions, without wondering…
Hate that I have to write about this subject here and pollute my otherwise rather upbeat & chirpy young blog page but after failing to fit what I wanted to say within the confines of a tweet I’ve decided to ventilate here instead.
As of today we all feel pure abhorrence for Ian Watkins and the ‘mothers
I got myself into a… debate, shall we say, with some people kicking off over the Lost Prophets nonsense.
They want the guy hung.
To be honest, the only reason I said what I said about psychological issues because it seemed the ‘safest’ ground to tread. What I actually believe doesn’t really matter.
I’d also like to say I have never listened to the Lost Prophets, so it’s not like I’m some crazed fan.
I just don’t agree with corporal punishment.
I’ve been reading lots of comments on the Ian Watkins situation and most of them say how much they want him to die or suffer or rot in hell. Anyone…
I never said it was any of you that were saying he should die. You should look at the tags, they’re everywhere on there. And I never said anything about how he SHOULDN’T be punished for what he’s done, but don’t you think death is a little over the top? It’s just wrong to me, sorry. And I’ve also never said that I WOULDN’T get hate mail. I knew exactly where I was posting my opinion & I chose this site for a reason. Also, in all the messages I keep getting people keep calling me a rape apologist, I am no way any sort of a rape apologist. Rape is 100% never ok. No matter who it’s happening to, or where. I never said anything about how rape was ok, or that it’s “not a big deal” because it is. Rape is a huge deal, and should be looked into more by the police because it happens everyday without people even knowing. And I knew other people were going to state their opinions, they have the right to & I respect that. What you’re not understand is that all I’m trying to say is, people that wish death upon other people, no matter what they did, is horrible, and ridiculous to even think about.
Things that reactions to Ian Watkins have taught me:
- “WE SHOULD BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY FOR THIS FUCKER!” Yes, thank you for your input, Piers Morgan. So are you suggesting that we do something immoral (killing) to someone who has acted in an immoral fashion to teach people that immoral…
I just love how I’m getting so much hate for stating MY OWN OPINION just like everyone else is doing. I guess mine just so happens to be “wrong” to some people. To those people that think MY OPINION is wrong, let me remind of something. An OPINION is an OPINION. It is neither wrong, nor right. It is simply an OPINION. Looks like some of you just needed to be reminded that I’m allowed to state MY OPINION because I have the right to do so, just like you. Do you see me sending various hate messages towards you because I think YOUR OPINION is “wrong”? No, no you don’t. Because I respect other people’s OPINIONS because it’s the right thing to do.
