This blog is the worlds most dangerous blog. How so? Well, for one thing, we do two things that you are taught to never do socially:
1) We talk about religion
2) We talk about politics
These topics are frowned upon in our society because they are two topics that people feel strongly about and are not likely to change their opinions about, hence, arguments come up.
I personally dont like to bring these topics up, even among friends. Debates are fine, but when we get close to arguing, I dont like it. I try to stand my ground and my positions, but I typically get drowned out by conspiracy rhetoric or "if that is bad, then this is bad" arguments, and it just turns into a circle where we end the argument feeling the same way as we did when we started, accomplishing very little.
However, one thing I like about us as friends. Though these topics are heated, we avoid two dangerous things:
1) We don't take personal attacks at each other
2) We don't call each other names
An outsider may see our blogs and think "How can these people be friends?" But then they will notice that there are no personal attacks on one another.
I will say this;
While the political and religious blogs are annoying, they do allow me to think more. Particularly the religious ones. That is a good thing.
This is NOT a call to stop all religious and political comments. It is just something I noticed. That good life long friends can have heated arguments and not have any personal attacks on each other. I noticed NO girls were posting in some of those posts which made me assume they either had no clue as to what we were talking about, or afriad to get in the middle of the 'fight'.
