It's a shame that you had to deal with someone's ignorant comment. But I think you message is very clear! Glad you said it!
My favorite part: "We, as humans, have an obligation to stand up for each other." Hey friend!I'm sorry that you got a crappy comment but I'm thrilled to hear that it didn't bother you at all. I get the nastiest comments on my YouTube videos, my blog, and twitter... some of them are brutal. Sometimes it's really hard for me to shrug them off, but it's (sadly) part of the gig with putting so much of ourselves on the internet. I'm actually working on a blog post about this exact topic so your vid came at an excellent time :)::Fist bump::
It's been a long time since I had to deal with negativity, and I'm actually glad cause I definitely don't have as thick a skin as you! Love your response, though :)
You are such an amazing person Alan. You're so right that people who bully are truly damaged inside...they are hurt and afraid and have no idea. Thankfully I've not had to deal with trolls or bullies on my blog, but if it ever happens, my policy is to not engage with them. It just so happens that I am putting the finishing touches on a blog post about conflict, so it will be interesting to see what happens!
well spoken, man!!! when i get called fat by somebody on the street (which doesnt happen a lot) i feel like yelling at the person and must admit that sometimes i do just that. im impressed with your vlog and will drop by again! puja from berlin
