You NEED to speak free and from the heart. That's what keeps it real.
If someone gets their panties in a bunch because of it just don't fall into the trap of feeling you have to defend yourself. Just let it roll. People who get offended by simple speech will always be offended. People who aren't never will be. It all comes out the same in the end.
