“If you like (insert name) then unfriend me now, as we can’t be friends.”

You ever see people post stupid shit like that.

As if the mere mention of that threat will convince you in some mystical way to change your view point. As if the person reading your post is now weighing what is more important your friendship or the fact they like the person you adamantly oppose. Welcome to social media…where you force your friends to capitulate to your thoughts and opinions or risk an unfriending.

Social media was not designed to be used as a weapon, or a means to force someone into staying friends with you. It was designed to bring people together, for the betterment of society.

Yet, here we are… forcing people to make a choice.

Nah, if I see you post stuff like that…you’re gone.

I don’t need someone trying to force me to make a decision over my thoughts, beliefs or opinions.

My true friends will never make me choose.
