Ramblings Against Censorship

I found out that someone in my MULTIPLY friends list did the something I detest: actually STOPPED some dang blog. Truth to be told, that gurl is in my multiply list but so are about two hundred others. Multiply is a community of bloggers who make it a point to exceedingly gossip about everyone (yeah, after they send you sweet glitters, they gossip about you). Thus I learned that some buddy of mine desperately hopped through hell and high water simply to have a blog shut? Geezz… that is enough to make me MAD!
Remember all the WAR here and at multiply over my defending Malou Fernandez’ RIGHT to say what she wants? Ohhh.. la. lah… how that UPSET Father Gravey who was dripping with sticky sweat then because he was pounding his keyboard too hard in ANGER all because I agreed that Malou Fernandez has a RIGHT to the First Amendment.
Now, what’s this I hear that some lifestyle journalist GOT OFFENDED about some blog called Chikatime and went rabid ENOUGH to have it CENSORED? This blog hibernates but it does wake up everytime there is a BLOG CENSORSHIP issue!
Heck! I do not give a fuckin’ shit if Chikatime attacked anyone “important”. Where is the blogging community when a blog is “shut” all because it displeases some people? If anyone doesn’t want a BLOG then one shouldn’t READ it! No one invites anyone to read blogs and you wouldn’t be offended if you weren’t READING it in the first place!
Malou Fernandez had the right to WRITE what she wanted…. and so does Chikatime.. and don’t ask me if I even know what Chikatime is because I’ve never been there. I just KNOW it shouldn’t be censored.
Nor should ANY BLOG be censored.


Brian Gorrell – An Objective View

Someone I know started a blog that landed him a book deal plus coverage from BBC. Yes, that’s the good news. The not too great follow-up however is that this friend of mine, Brian Gorrell, is HIV positive. He tells his whole angst filled spiced with his rather blunt expression of raw anger.

Brian’s story is one too familiar. He is an HIV positive Aussie guy, who fell deeply and foolishly in love with some Filipino guy known as Delfin. Brian admits that he did enjoy the beach paradise at a place called Boracay but his kind of “eden” didn’t last too long. He didn’t know that his boyfriend was associating with socialites allegedly with “crime links” and he witnessed the not too pleasant reality of living among the extremely rich who have acquired their money through less than decent and legal means.Last that I managed to chat with him, he admitted that his blog was something that he needed to do to release his “rage”. Rage is a good thing sometimes. Or at least, the releasing of ‘rage’- because it can be something like a catharsis. I guess that was why Brian Gorrell just HAD to start a blog.It was the only therapy that was available while he was hurting.His blogging was like his own version of personal journaling. Perhaps there were days when he was crying while banging his keyboard. But he does have one thing – GUTS!
