Deleting Posts & Thanks for Proving My Point

Deleting Posts
On Thursday, I posted this. In the post, I stated I was having problems with mental "fogginess"/confusion, and that I'd limit my comments due to that fact. But after I posted, I started worrying that maybe, in my confusion, I might have misstated something, or seemed to treat a serious subject in a flippant way. I took the post down.

This subject has been bothering me ever since, and after thinking and worrying about it, I've made some decisions. I have multiple impairments right now. Mental confusion makes it very difficult to process information and respond to that information. But I still have something to say when I'm feeling foggy. I'm going to screw up whether I'm at 100% functioning or 10% functioning. I hope that people let me know when I screw up-please, call me on my shit-but I'm going to stop hiding when I'm not 100%. I don't know if 100% is ever coming back, but I do know that I'm not finished thinking and discussing.

Thanks for Proving My Point
Amanda apologized
for her use of the photo (see link above). That's more than many would do, but she really should have turned the comments off, or moderated comments. People are pissed! How dare anyone accuse them of anything improper! You can use any cultural image you want, other as many brown-skinned women as you want, if you do it in the name of feminism. What's funny, in a sick sort of way, is how similar the reactions of many in the comment thread are to the average right-wing response. "You're too sensitive!"

Yeah. Right.

Good for you! Who's ever really at 100% anyway? As you mentioned, just because you're not feeling your best doesn't mean you don't have something to say and if you do, then you should say it. So what if sometimes you screw up? All that makes you is human, and that's not such a bad thing to be.

Well, 100% is too much of a good thing anyway, isn't it? Keep on posting and forget about the 100%, that's what blogging is about.

Glad you're out and about. You're better at 50% (that's just a figure of percentage, not a real lable, you understand, I hope) than most people are at 95+!

What I meant to say, parenthetically, or using an asterisk (which I left out)was:

*actual percentages may vary

You kick ass. And if you've read my blog at all lately you'll notice that I'm far from 100%.

Hang in there S.E!!

Sorry I cannot really comment on the topic because I don't even understand what all the fuss is about that one particular woman in that picture?? I don't know why they would put a burqua on her. I understood when you wrote how there were only white bloggers but since then it's morphed into something I cannot keep up with.

I haven't really been reading blogs of late. I have seen the pictures of Bumble though and he is looking as gorgeous as ever. :)

I'm really sorry to hear your concerns about perhaps never feeling '100%' again. I wish so much there was something I could do to help.

Please take good care, ok?? I'm thinking of you...
