Anonymous asked: I'm not surprised you got me wrong. I'm saying if we only compliment not criticize, then you don't offend people and it has the side effect of making the world better! Is that so hard to understand? When you criticize, your words hurt people.

Wait… really?

Anon, you’re living in a dreamworld. Sometimes criticism is needed…

More significantly, I think you’re off-topic. The notion that we only compliment and not criticize seems a little odd to me. Further, that’s weird coming from someone calling me a bitch. I didn’t view that as a compliment.

Cheers,
Meg
