    I'd like to apologize for my rudeness.

    I recently was a fan of the author known as Estee. I'm generally a fan of his humor, although I don't read most of his stories.

I'd like to apologize for my rudeness. · 12:54am Apr 9th, 2018

I recently was a fan of the author known as Estee. I'm generally a fan of his humor, although I don't read most of his stories. Recently I posted on one of his blogs with a short and somewhat blunt statement. I couldn't remember why I had stopped reading some of his stories, but I was reminded when he pointed our his reasoning for a dislike of one of my favorite authors outside of the internet. I posted the short, but admittedly rude statement:

Ah, I couldn't remember why I stopped reading most of your stories a while back.

He was quite incensed about it. While still thinking about what else I might say, he blocked me. Perhaps I said it at a bad time for him. Perhaps I should have said more. Perhaps I should have said nothing at all. Still, I can't take back what I've said. Rude, inconsiderate as it might have been, it's still the truth. I wont, can't back down from my beliefs, even when someone who otherwise seems like a good, interesting person disagrees so vehemently with me on the subject. I don't know if he'll ever come across this, but if he does I want him to have my honest response to this whole debacle.

I just want to apologize for alienating you so much. Perhaps I shouldn't have been so blunt about it, but I often feel attacked when people say that someone who disagrees with same-sex marriage (regardless of how extremely or lightly they do so) is a rotten person simply for that belief. I suppose I also should have pointed out that while I don't read those stories of yours wherein I find the content to be objectionable, I do greatly enjoy other portions of your work. I don't like that you have certain beliefs, but I find some of your blog posts to be quite interesting. You're a person who is generally really good at what you write. I'm a fan of most of Orson Scott Card's books myself, and I even have some of them signed. However, I do have a great dislike for some of his other works. I'm sorry again that I was rude in the way I expressed myself. I hope we are able to reconcile about this somehow.
