Why is it necessary to do that? It’s not like I’m going to stop liking something just because you don’t.
I admire who I want to admire. I listen to whatever I want to listen to.
Your opinion is not relevant to me.
The only opinion I care about is my own. Yes, I respect everyone’s opinions, but only as long as they have the decency to respect mine just as equally. And if I come off as a bit defensive, it’s because I get the vibe that you don’t respect my opinion.
