If you put yourself out there, you must be prepared for, and expect that you may receive some criticism. Please note, not all of it may be favorable. You have to be willing to take the good and the bad. If you have a youtube channel, where you share original content or opinions, you know exactly what I’m talking about. They go hard on youtube.
That being said, if you send me an unsolicited twerking video of you, in lingerie, twerking, and I don’t happen to like it, I will remain silent. I simply won’t say anything at all. Even if it disgusts me, and I find you completely revolting, I won’t say anything negative to you. Consider my silence a gesture of good will, that’s me being nice and courteous to you. I won’t speak ill of it, but I won’t lie to you and speak positive of something that I don’t like.
Growing up, I was taught, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. I honor this rule, and if I don’t have anything nice to say, I stay quiet. What I won’t do, is lie and say that something is great, if I don’t believe it. This is not to say that I have never lied to spare feelings, but this is a rare occurrence, and I only do it when absolutely necessary to help propel someone forward, or keep them on track.
Understand that, if you continue press me, and insist on pushing me for my “honest” opinion, you will get it. Be aware that you might not like what you will hear.
I understand that we live in this hyper sensitive society. A society where everyone gets offended over every damn thing that can be said. You say one thing, and I can find you a group of people, or person who will be offended by it. You can’t say crap to anyone about anything, or they will fold over into the fetal position and start to cry. I play along with this pc crap to a degree, but don’t push me too much or things might get real for you real fast.
I have my tastes and preferences, what I like and find sexually attractive. Neither you, or your politically correct rules will determine what is pleasing to my eyes. First and foremost, I don’t care for twerking videos. Twerking doesn’t really appeal to me, and that’s just me, I don’t really care for it. However, on those rare days that I desire to see some twerking action, I know where to go to see it.
I do enjoy a good Shisha video if I may say so myself!
In this case, the person who sent me the video, was not my cup of tea. They didn’t like that I said “It’s not my thing.” Again, that was me being kind. I tried silence, but the person continued to ask me, “Why are you not commenting? What do you think of my video?” Okay, if you insist, it’s not my thing. I’m not saying it’s bad, it’s just not my thing. Person then got mad, deleted the video, and blocked me. Meh, I told you, I won’t lie to spare your sensitivities. You got silence, you pushed. You got a gentle response, and you still got offended. Imagine if I really said what I thought. Meh.
