And I'm kind of frustrated about this.
I have tried very hard to make sure that, while however informative/entertaining/honest/whatever my post is, it's also considerate. I am on the Board of Directors of two separate organizations at this time, and I have also been a University instructor, so I am very well aware of the fact that anything I say or do may be held against me. That's why, when I was teaching, I stopped going out to the bars where students tended to hang out - I didn't want anyone to think I could possibly be construed as even considering doing anything inappropriate.
These days, I continue to pay attention to things like that. When I am sufficiently affected by something I see/hear to write about it, I'm careful about how I do so, especially when I know the people who are involved in whatever the thing is. I don't want to offend anyone, or put the Boards in a bad light, or come off looking like a jerk.
It's clear, though, that people will misinterpret all sorts of things, and there's nothing I can do about it. So what should I do? Should I stop expressing myself to avoid hurting the feelings of people who may or may not actually ever read my blog? That seems ridiculous. No, I'll continue on as I have been. If you're offended by what you see, then go read something else. I KNOW that I'm not the most interesting thing on the internet.
