I am so sick and tired of characters in books, TV, and movies deciding that they know better than everyone else what other people should do and having major plot points revolve around not telling the truth and trying to force the person to do things.

I mean WTF writers, find a better way.

I am continually surprised by how often people will go out of their way to tell you they don't like you.

If I post on a message board and you don't like what I have to say, there is usually an ignore function.

If its on social media, there are ways to block my content from infesting your stream.

And yet, people occasionally feel the need to send me a special note to tell me they think I'm an asshole or, in the particular case that prompted this post to tell me that I am "reality averse."

This was in the context of discussing the Red Sox disappointing 2014 season. Sometime said something about fighting the ship and I said the ship didn't need righting. The organization was making (mostly) good decisions and reasonable gambles. Sometimes it doesn't work out, but if you keep making good decisions, it's going to work out more often than not.

And apparently I'm an asshole for dismissing a "well thought out dissenting opinion" and it's doubling down on the condescension to point out that the opinion wasn't well thought out.

Here's the thing. It's not my fault you're a small minded reactionary dipshit. If you don't want me to criticize your ideas, have good ideas. If you don't want me to dismiss your ideas out of hand, make them ideas that aren't stupid.

If your idea is that an organization needs to be fixed just because of some sort term setbacks (and yes, one season of a team's performance is short term) then you have a stupid idea.
Especially when the team in question won the championship the year before.

Oh hell yes. There are a couple states out there banning the AP US History class because it actually teaches history and sometimes that makes America look less than perfect, what with slavery, the internment of the Japanese, eugenics, disco, gamergate, and so forth.

The truth matters, folks, the truth matters.

Dear People Who Talk On Podcasts,

Don't take a big breath before and after you say something, we hear it and it's incredibly annoying.

Story
Tagline
I write stuff. Maybe you'll like it.
Introduction
In first grade, my teacher asked the kids to vote on what book she was going to read to us during story time. I raised my hand for one thing. The entire rest of the class raised their hand for The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

I have been holding minority opinions and reading fantasy stories ever since.
Bragging rights
I survived the Blizzard of '78 with the most awesome snow forts ever.
