I just received an email from someone who was offended by the watermarks on my photographs. This blog is mine and mine, alone. I do mean to offend, if comments such as: DON'T BE RACIST, END THE WAR ON WOMEN, DON'T BE A JERK, REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE, and NICE MATTERS , offend, then I clearly have struck a nerve.
After the Ferguson, MO decision, I put up the watermark END RACISM. That prompted an email: "I am sorry you don't like white people. I am leaving your blog." I thought that was an interesting interpretation of my watermark.
We all have our biases and I do have prejudice. Mostly I dislike interacting with racists, misogynists and jerks. Luckily I don't have much opportunity. Maybe I should say "Please."
My blog, my choice. I am not posting any more comments about this topic. Back to sewing machines.
