You are right, I did hesitate. I dont like to offend. But I dont like to lie even more.Originally Posted by 172231500 link=1231381923/0#0 date=1231381923
Would I make the same choice? No.
In fact I found the story crude, vulgar and obscene.
Maybe this is because I grew up in an oppressive religious family. Dont know but I find blatantly lying to someone, even to make them feel better, disgusting.
When my wife asks me "Does this look good on me?" and it doesnt, I say "no". Why? because I respect her enough not to lie to her.
I tend to offend some people. I struggle to find words, sentences that are honest but dont offend. But I find this easier then lying. I am probably offending you now! :-?
Do I think that you should suppress your thoughts not to offend me? *>:(ABSOLUTELY NOT! >:(
I would find the fact that you would stop expressing yourself, like the above, because you thought you would offend someone REALLY, REALLY offensive.
