Husband is a Facebook troll
Dear Amy: I have been active on Facebook for several years.
I generally use FB to keep in touch with friends I don't get to see often. I don't get too personal.
My husband has recently become much more active on Facebook. After leaving a corporate job last year and going into business for himself, I think he is feeling free to express his opinions and "be himself."
This has included trolling friends' political posts and calling strangers out -- and not always in a nice way.
While I agree with most of his political views, I think he comes off as a total jerk.
He has also made some raunchy and inappropriate comments. I have called him out online and in person ("dude, everybody is reading this stuff!"), but he insists that he doesn't care. He says, "It was a joke. It's just Facebook," but it all makes me really uncomfortable.

I don't want him to stop being himself; I just wish he would tone it down and consider how public his comments are.
I know that "unfriending" him will only stir the pot, and not fix anything.
I've always appreciated his outspoken manner, until now.
How do I make him understand how this affects me?
