Controversy

“I just can’t believe all the things people say, Controversy …”

Today’s writing prompt asks what is the most controversial thing I’ve ever written on my blog.

I strive for honesty in expressing my opinions in my posts, as in life, but always respectfully and always trying to see the other person’s point of view. I have shared my thoughts elsewhere on the web before starting this blog, and I shared one of those posts, http://www.blogher.com/yesallwomen-yesallmen, on BlogHer last spring.

At the time, it was a trending topic and as it is something that has affected me in various ways most of my adult life, I felt I should share some of that, with the hopes that maybe it would give people who didn’t understand it well a better glimpse into the ways it can affect a person.

I don’t know how controversial it was, since it was just my own personal thoughts and experiences, but it is probably my most read post in any forum, especially considering it wasn’t featured anywhere and it was my very first post on that particular blog site.

  1. I love this line from your BlogHer post: “In spite of the horrible reason the tag was created, I find it to be a very good thing.” I do think something good comes out of the conversation; in not sweeping these thoughts under the rug. Controversial topics are good for that 🙂
