Indy Lass Suggestion for controversy-Free Threads (49) RE: Suggestion for controversy-Free Threads 18 Jul 99

I guess I agree with SeanM, Kat. While it's nice to think we can avoid controversy and hurting people's feelings, I just don't think it can really be done. We all have very different views on things--what someone thinks is funny, others may not, etc., etc. Vegetarians and animal lovers may not like the things said about possums and pigmeat...and we could go on from there as far as examples of all the different sentiments among us. But freedom of speech on all topics is necessary to freedom in general. We have to tolerate this fact, just like we tolerate other drivers on the roads. We're all human. I think we are smart enough to exercise empathy also--both ways.
