Seriously? People drive me nuts. I personally hate that there is any censorship. I think that I should be able to say what ever I want and share what ever I want on FB or what ever other site. I have a friend list on FB. If you don’t like what I share, unfriend me and don’t visit my site. Just like this blog. If you don’t like that I swear, don’t come here and read my shit. Simple. As a parent, it is my responsibility to monitor and control what my child is exposed to. It is not your job or FB staff’s job. Take some fucking responsibility. And here’s a news flash, you’re going to see shit in life that you don’t like. You’re going to disagree with people. You’ll make it. I promise that not sharing the same views as every other person on the planet won’t kill you.

Anyway, so people bitch and want shit censored so that FB can be a family friendly site. So, FB tries to do this by making programs that censor out nudity. Well, sorry to break it to you, but Neptune is fucking naked! How is it ok for your kid to see a dick made of rock but not one of flesh? I just don’t get it. It’s still a naked man, either way. So, yeah the program was all like “Woah! Naked dude, can have that shit!” and blocked it, because people want naked dudes blocked on FB. Just can’t have our kids seeing naked dudes on FB. Well, unless it’s a statue of Neptune. What about Zeus? Is it ok if it is Zeus? Because that guy wigs me out. I mean swans and bulls and shit. Really? Can we skip the naked Zeus? Oh, right, it’s art and you like it and freedom of speech and shit.

That’s what chaps my ass about all this. People are very quick to tell other people what they should not post because it is offensive. But then they go and post whatever they want. Once their shit is blocked or marked as offensive they loose their shit and pull the freedom of speech card or the culture card. Well, fuck you. I have freedom of speech and culture too. Just because it doesn’t look like your’s and you don’t like it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

Did I go off topic here?
