There are many viewpoints on this forum (and in life) that I vehemently disagree with. I frequently read posts that leave my eyes either rolling, or bugging out. This, I believe, is the result of being part of a minority. And that's okay, we don't have to agree on everything. Where I do feel kinship with the majority is the Brethren tendency to listen to our own inner moderators.

Before responding to a post that offends me, I typically consider:
Will my opinions, philosophies, beliefs cause anyone to think outside of their comfort zone? Perhaps...on occasion.
Will my words enrage someone's sensibilities? Without question.
Is it worth it? Usually not.

There is a Buddhist precept that I embrace, "Do not speak, unless it improves on silence." If I can hold my tongue, surely you can too (your own tongue though...ok?).

And finally, if it is nudity that you elsewhere. This isn't the place for it.
