Views are my own

Being Human

Twitter profiles saying “views are my own” disturb me.

It implies at least one of these:

  • You’re prone to parroting shit you don’t believe
  • You work for a tyrant who is uncomfortable with you speaking your mind
  • You’re scared of lawyers

Which also implies, therefore, that the rest of what you say is likely to be of negligible value, since why would I value the opinions of someone who is happy with any of the above?

Thankfully this provides me with another opportunity to air this perennial favourite from XKCD
