Normally I don't like to coddle people. But I give exception for my new friend Katie.
On my recent Post Adventures abound! Katie said :Ok that butchering story is absolutely disgusting. How could anyone be so cruel - do you have no soul????
Katie missed the part where I said it was difficult for us. And anyone that knows me realize that it was heartbreaking to watch her suffer. But as many of you know, I write about the unpleasant things that happen when you are homesteading. It isn't for everyone, and I do put up fair warning when things might be graphic.
On the post Our Right to Bear Arms, Katie says ; Oh please. Guns kill. Why the hell do you need a gun????????????????????????? Are you planning on killing anyone anytime soon? Seriously, you rednecks kill me (pun intended).
Katie hasn't read the Constitution where it states that we are allowed to have guns if we want them. And yes Katie, guns do kill, that is their purpose. I do not plan on killing someone anytime soon. The gun I want would be for protection against all those wild dogs that people think it is ok to dump in the country. Redneck? No sorry Katie I have long hair, no sunburns on the back of my neck.
On Canned Meat, Katie says; Um, rabbit meat? Ewwwww. I am sitting next to my 2 pet bunnies and that is as repulsive to me as eating a dog or a cat (which you would probably eat). Do you also eat raccoon and squirrel b/c you strike me as the type (ahem hoosier). Sick.
You obviously know very little about me Katie. You have your pets, and I have mine. You also know very little about the mentality and the emotions of a person that raises livestock. Besides, I never once said I did indeed eat rabbit meat, I only informed others how to can it. Katie, I am a food writer, I have eaten and cooked many things for my job. You my dear are jumping to conclusions without knowing a person.
On Worst Case Scenario, Katie replies with; Let me take a WILD stab at it...you're a Christian. Big shocker there.
Wow Katie, you know me so well. Truth be told, this is something that many of my readers already know, but I am not a Christian. However I am distressed that those people that think they should deserve special treatment because they are this or that, feel so free to bash and attack one religion. One that has suffered just as the pagans, Jews, Muslims all have. But then that would mean you would need to read more than two pages of a book to discover that.
So to introduce myself. My name is Phelan. I am well educate, I listen to Heavy metal, I am a professional writer and I am a mother. I am a homesteader, I was a vegan for 15 years. I don't talk religion because it is a personal choice and I choose not to isolate anyone, and I am an Independent when it comes to politics. You could find out these things and many more if you take the time to get to know me rather than instantly judging me.
I hope Katie, that you will get all the attention that you were wanting with your comments. I am sure my friends are super happy to meet a new friend.
