“Because I can and I will.”
By no means am I being ignorant, but I will say and do whatever makes me content. Life is too short to abide by the expectations of others and media. If I said something to hurt your pride, suck it up. If you felt uncomfortable with my words, then too bad. And if you believed what I profess to be wrong, well then, I don’t want to be right.
Again, this is not about being ignorant, but simply being expressive in one’s own opinions. If I can’t even do that, then what am I living for?
