"It's Just Your Opinion!"
People often respond to things I blog about with this weird reproach: "It's just your opinion!" Well, duh. Of course, I express my opinions on my blog. Wouldn't it be very strange if I expressed somebody else's? In the very fisrt post I ever wrote, I stated that blogging was the way I discovered to express my own opinions, which, unfortunately, is not something a young academic can do freely in their professional setting. Also, the header of the blog announces very clearly that this is what I'm doing here: voicing my opinions. Why some people feel the need repeatedly to reproach me for doing what I always said I was trying to do is impossible for me to comprehend.
