Day 10, and I’m defo getting better at doing this regularly ^_^
Write about something for which you feel strongly.
I feel strongly about many things – racism, homophobia, sexism, liars, cheaters, hypocrites, pushy people.
I think what I feel the most strongly about is attitude. The attitude people have towards other people, whether it’s because of their race, colour, religion, sexual identity, gender, clothing, outlook.
There are so many people, particularly on facebook, who share racist and other propaganda which 99% of the time is made up shyte designed to stir up agro. I have unfriended anyone who regularly posts from ‘Britains First’ or ‘English and Proud’ etc. Now, I’m not saying folk shouldn’t be proud to be British, but what about the black British people? Or the asian British people? Shouldn’t they also be proud? Before you post crap like that, research it. No child was ever sent home from school because his Help for Heroes wristband might offend Muslims…
This whole flag nonsense. The vast majority of people from other cultures and religions could not give a rats ass if you fly a St Georges flag outside your house. It’s a pathetic little politician who thinks they are upset by it who caused the shit storm.
Sending them back to ‘their’ own countries. Well, do we also send back their children who were born here? Their parents? Grandparents? What do we do about the many many Brits who live in other countries? Do we then also make them come back here?
Then there was the furor for Caitlyn Jenner being called brave for her transgender speech. Why the fuck do you care so much what she does? Who the fuck are you to decide what is bravery and what isn’t? If her speech stopped one transgender person from feeling lonely, from feeling different, from feeling suicidal, then job well done Caitlyn.
Why does two man getting married threaten you so much? Or two women? Making marriage equal between any 2 consenting adults doesn’t meant you have to do it you know…..
Who the fuck are you to judge anyone else?
