I've had so many people tell me that I should write my articles including opinions other than mine. But this is MYarticle, and I'll write them how I see fit. I understand the importance of other people's opinions and how they can make a better argument but why am I going to invalidate and contradict my own by also including someone else's? That takes away from the point of the whole article and the message I'm trying to get across.
If I'm expressing my opinion on a subject, it's MY opinion for a reason, that doesn't mean I have to include all sides to the argument. For example, say I believe in Freedom Of Religion, no matter the religion. Another person might not because they're a devout Christian and they think Satanism is a sin. I shouldn't have to include that into my argument just because it's relevant, because it isn't. Not to the message I'm trying to share. Whether or not you agree with my opinion, I'm still going to write it and spread it. I don't need a counterclaim to support it, nor do I have to write to your expectations.
When I write an article, I write based on what I think, and honestly that's the only opinion I need. It may be biased but that shouldn't matter. In the words of a friend, "Who is asking for multiple sides in your articles?? That's stupid, were writing personal articles not English papers."
I'm not going to attack you for having a different opinion, but I don't have to acknowledge it either. When writing about subjects I strongly believe in, I'm not going to include a counter argument because it's not relevant to what I think. A better reason is, Why do I need another opinion? Why is it important to include someone views other than my own in MY article? Why can't I express solely my own opinion without it being a problem?
I realize this article makes me seem very small minded, but it's exactly the opposite. I'm open minded about pretty much everything, my article was originally going to be about Trans people and how they should be accepted whether or not you agree with it because everyone deserves to live a life where they're happy and not constantly brought down in society. It was also going to include how them being trans shouldn't be the deciding factor in whether or not they're worth your time because that's what I believe. I shouldn't have to include the other side of that argument because it's not necessarily what I believe, therefor it's irrelevant.
I ran into problems with my previous idea so I wrote this one instead. I shouldn't have to live my life by your standards, nor should I have to conform my writing to them. This is how I want to write, and this is how I'm going to.
