Freedom of Speech by Winter-Phantom Freedom of Speech by Winter-Phantom
First off; this picture doesn't relate to me; I'm straight, as in I like females.

I picked this picture because I wanted a picture that gives the message I'm trying to give; "Stand tall and be proud", and I think this pictures shows just what I'm looking for; people who stand tall and proud.

Freedom of Speech IS NOT free. Your power to do things goes as for as you push for it; if you want Freedom of Speech, then you have to tell all those assholes out there "Don't tell me to shut the f**k up, because I have rights! I'm not going to stop talking just because you tell me too!"

Click the link below to see Emma Nelson standing up for her freedom of speech.

No, I'm not saying do what she did, but you get my point, don't let one person tell you to STFU, because you have rights!

Free speech cannot just be claimed, I agree. One must be willing to stand up for it.
I agree with free speech, and I also agree on the fine line of common sense.

Thanks :D
I completely agree with you on free speech... which is why I think it's ironic that you flagged someone for spam and blocked them. Not trying to start a fight, but check out [link] (not sure if that will work since I haven't posted links yet, but we'll see) Other than that I agree 100% with the freedom of speech, and all the other freedoms we should have.

Oh ok. It's just when he listed "Liberals" with Hippies and Communist, it felt like he was trying to start something.

I already got annoyed a few days ago by a Republican who was comparing Democrats and Hippies with being erresponible. And all day today I've been putting up with some idiots on a Deviantart group who are trying to control me (which is why I made this poster), so I wasn't in the mood to continues another conflict.

Basically when I blocked the guy, I didn't see it as "take away free speech", I saw it as "don't start something when no one's talking about it".
I can see why you did what you did then. You should just tolerate what idiots might say, the world is full of them. That's why I tend to stay away from touchy subjects like this, haha! (Besides the fact that I have no idea what party I'd be in to begin with, I seem to sway to either side randomly with each subject).

Just wanted to do my part as an online Buttinski to make sure everyone's voice was heard. :D
