In the past few weeks we here at (P)BB have received more than one e-mail expressing disappointment at us for some of the more colorful language that we use here. The consensus of said e-mails seems to express that the creative terms we use for those featured on our pages somehow makes us look ‘unprofessional’. I guess once again I have to post what we’re all about.
WHAT WE’RE NOT: Journalists, paid, nuns, Amish, professionals.
WHAT WE ARE: Fathers, mothers, step-parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, survivors, cycle breakers and most of all human.
I’ll admit it, we often give in to our baser emotions here and this really is the place to do it rather than express that outrage physically in the real word. A cathartic outlet if you will. I will never ask the writers here to censor themselves.
In short, as we’ve said many times before, be more offended over the acts that so-called parents inflict on their children rather than the language that we choose to use.
You have every right to be offended if you so desire but I also have the right not to care if you are.
