Being strong armed.
I just gotta get this out.
I do not like being strong armed and forced to do things I don't want to do, or don't believe that I should do. This is my blog and it's personal to me. I started this for me, and the fact that I have followers is a bonus. I like you guys and I feel like I've made a lot of awesome friends.
But when a small group of people will not leave you alone and hassle you to no end, send you hundreds of emails exclaiming you're a racist, calling you a privileged white person, you have to stop and think about what you're doing. I do not AT ALL believe that the drawings that I had on here previously were racist. But, since that small group of people felt like it was, they contacted some of my sponsors asking them to withdraw their support in me. That is not okay. I do not want my friends/sponsors/advertisers to be involved in this in anyway. Innocent bystanders in the cross fire. I can honestly say that I would never bully anyone into changing their content, even if I detest their website.
I guess I just want you all to know that I'm not racist. I care very much for all types of people, even the ones that are mean to me. But I did change my blog header (don't laugh! it's temporary!) and I did remove the native girl print just to give my inbox some peace. There was no lesson learned here except that bullying gets you what you want.
