I was sitting with my dad and his new wife before watching a recap of the grammys from last night. When they were showing the whole Macklemore/wedding of 36 couples thing I was like “that’s really cool” and they both were kind of like “well I wouldn’t want to get married at the grammys” and I said “well I didn’t say I would either, I just think that it’s cool because a year ago they couldn’t do that at all. They kind of made history here.” and they gave me this look and one of them said “I’m all for gay people, but they shouldn’t get married. That’s between a man and a woman.” So I went back with “what if that couple wants to start a family” and they said back “oh well that’s fine, I think adoption is a wonderful thing” I ended the conversation because why argue with two adults who clearly know exactly what they’re talking about.
So you think adoption is a wonderful thing, but if two gay people want to have a child you don’t think they should be married? So essentially the child they ever adopt will automatically have a “broken home” ?
Yes please continue to have thoughts.
Fast forward to five minutes later when Justin Bieber is shown about his wild night in Florida. Instead of blaming the white kid from Canada who’s only 19 but is fully aware of all of his dumbass actions they sat there and blamed it on “well that black guy found him, what kind of industry do you think he was pushed into” So I retaliated with “Usher, you’re talking about Usher? The 30 something year old guy who wasn’t even there with him. Who doesn’t have control over a 19 year olds thoughts and actions?” Neither of them had an answer.
Not that I think the only two topics that get highly discriminated against are race and sexual orientation because they aren’t. There is plenty more that I could mention. But I keep getting really aggravated that this is the way my parents/ their generation seems to think.
And I know that it’s been said before but really, if you don’t like the way someone is acting can’t you just not pay attention to them? If you don’t like what someone is doing, ignore it? That’s what I was taught to do when I was younger about classmates that bothered me by the same people that are sitting in my living room judging society based off of things that they don’t like. If you see a gay couple walking down the street, instead of making some rude comment just look away? If you see a person of another race and don’t have anything nice to say, fucking shut your god damn mouth.
I know everybody is entitled to their own opinion, I do. But if I don’t agree with it I’m going to challenge you. Not tell you that you’re wrong. Think whatever the fuck you want to. But if you’re going to put down my beliefs and tell me that my opinion of someone based off of their sexual orientation, race, gender, their class status, etc. is wrong then be prepared to wish you’ve never opened your mouth.
Also, as a side note. I have to remember that a majority of the people who think like my parent(s) do are around their age or older and will die soon, so that at least makes me feel better. Don’t sit here, ruin our country and economy, then judge him, her, me, we, them, they, us, whatever, whoever because of different values or whatever the case may be.
oh hey look the blog i always use now.
What am I supposed to do if I go to this fucking samsung center and they tell me that they can’t fix it. I’ll kill someone.
Because t-mobile told me that none of their stores can fix a broken screen. And if it costs me more than $150 I’m going to scream because I HAVE MORE IMPORTANT SHIT TO PAY.
