Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. (Or their opinion, or ze's opinion - I like ze.) And sometimes
mine is that you shouldn't have voiced it just because you can. Sometimes mine
is "you are correct but just for you, perhaps you should have added
something to indicate that your opinion is actually an opinion and not a judgment". Sometimes my opinion is "no - that thing you are saying is NOT an opinion
it's a judgment and you are basically framing it in such a way that it is an
order when you are trying to make a claim that other people should not do that
I'm entitled to all those opinions too.
I know that western culture is bad at respecting humans as
feeling things but I'm getting concerned that "anger" is not just
acceptable as a framework (because it is) but is also the default and
accusatory position. Anger is awesome for violent revolutions to break free -
but it's HORRIBLE for building things. So part of my opinion is this - we can
respect anger as valid- but when do we create the building part?
