Positivity and controversy

The central theme of this blog is positivity and neutrality. When you approach things with a logical mind instead of letting your views be clouded by emotions, you can often see that there are always two sides to many issues and that it’s possible to bridge the divide and reach a common ground.

While I often cover controversial topics on this blog, I try to approach these topics with neutrality.

I always like to think about an incident that happened shortly before the midterm elections this past year. My mother, brother, sister-in-law, and I were all in the office, and a man came in to take a poll and ask our opinion on immigration. In general, we all tend to lean in different directions politically, but this man got us all to agree on everything. He explained every issue in a non-biased way and used logic and didn’t try to sway us towards one particular view and surprisingly enough, we discovered we all agreed on a lot of important points.

That is the theme of this blog. While I may talk about things like race and sexuality and things that are issues in the world these days, I intend to keep it positive and unbiased and also, I don’t want this blog to be a place for militants, toxicity, or hate in any form. Quite often, people think their ‘side’ is more righteous than other’s sides, and they don’t realize they are doing the same thing as the people they claim to oppose, just from the other side of the fence.

I’ve always believed that there are two sides to everything and that there are exceptions to every rule and I have always considered myself an equalist, an equalitarian. But most of all, I consider myself I human, an individual.

I have identities. I have an ethnicity, a religion, sexuality, a gender, a social status, etc. Some of these can be considered a privilege and some aren’t. But in the end, I am more than a label, more than an ‘identity’ I am a human first and foremost. I am an individual.

So I will end this by pointing out that even in controversial subjects, I will not tolerate comments that have negative connotations to them. This is not a debate blog.

I express myself through the written word and the visual world. I have Aspergers but I don't see it as a 'disability' but rather, an identity. It is who I am.
