No. I won’t tag posts for them. Or anybody else. I’m not the one fasting nor do I think is a good idea anyway. Furthermore, I don’t respect their beliefs. Why should I respect myth, superstition and nonsense? What I do respect is people and the right they have to believe and practice what they may. But respect for them, respect for those rights go as far as my own rights start.
Are some Muslims offended by food on tumblr? They need to skip tumblr for a month. Why would anyone have to limit what they post, change their conduct, do specialty tags or do anything out of the ordinary to appease a nonsensical religious belief one does not share to begin with? Please…
What’s next? Ask non-muslims to refrain from drawing Muhammad ? Curtailing freedom of speech if it disrespects religion? How soon do we forget? Can’t we see the gross capitulation that is giving away our own freedoms under the false guise of religious respect? Sometimes so called “progressive” thinking becomes its own worst enemy.
I’m with you on this one. Most folks know that I’m very accepting to just about anything but this kind of thing is ridiculous. If someone doesn’t want to be exposed to food they should simply stay off the internet, not watch TV and not listen to radio. I respect any religion even though I think they’re all delusions but I think taking special precautions for the religious when it comes to things that are otherwise completely normal and not offensive in any way is a bridge too far.
I MIGHT start thinking about it when all religious people start refraining from talking about their religion in their posts. Because hey, that’s kind of annoying for an atheist such as myself!
But guess what? I don’t take offense, nor do I ask people to please tag their posts with ‘jesus’ or ‘god’ so I won’t have to see them. That would be ridiculous, right? Kind of like how it’s ridiculous to have to tag a picture of food with ‘food’.
