Invitation to argue

For the record:

I’m an Aries. I’m outspoken. I love to argue.

As an Aries, even if I completely agree with you about a topic, I’ll still argue with you. Not just because I love to argue, but because I want to see how firm your belief or argument is. And at the same time, I want to test my own belief or argument—I hate it when I just regurgitate something I’ve been told or taught without thinking about the why of it.

So, please, don’t worry about coming to my blog and disagreeing with me. Please do.

When you post comments here, don’t worry about the niceties of social convention. My wife likes to refer to me as high-functioning autistic anyway, so the social aspect is mostly lost on me as it is.

If you think I’m wrong, tell me why. If you think I’m full of crap, call me on it. I’m not easily insulted, and arguing with me is not an insult. Having your own point of view isn’t an insult. If you want to insult me, do it explicitly. Or be sneaky about it—that works, too.

Of course, if you don’t bring your A-Game, well, that’s another matter entirely.

(P.S. – Scott Stroz, this isn’t all about you.)
