Has society become so bored in our everyday lives that we are willing to pick a fight over nothing? Since when did society become so politically correct that having an opinion is offensive. When do we ‘turn the other cheek’ these days? Are you willing to shoot someone over a blue shirt? These are some of the questions that run through my mind as I try to ignore the news while waiting for the traffic report.
A few weeks ago I was conversing with an Airman, who I will refer to as Sgt. Sexy. If you ever need a piece of eye candy, please call Sgt Sexy. He has a nice body and a brilliant mind. I only put the brilliant mind part because he’s hot and I have no idea if he is smart but he reads this blog so I feel obligated to write that he is smart. He is no doubt smarter than me so lets roll with that. He is currently stationed out of the country and has seen a fair share of inflicted damage. Back to the point, I was conversing with Sgt Sexy regarding violence in the world and the fact that we don’t respect people’s opinions or even their rights to have a different opinion.
This happened just this past week. Apparently Kanye West made some dumb comments. The next day a few people on the local radio station were saying they need to take away his kids, remove him from the birth certificate and remove him from the black race. I must clarify that I believe what he said was dumb, and I think most people will agree with me, but I don’t believe he should not have the rights to being black, or having a child/children. I honestly don’t know how many kids he has and I don’t care. What if he had said something like “I hate the color green” and people said the same things over his hatred for the color green? I believe these people were more bothered by his jumping over to Trump’s side than the dumb comments about slavery, but whatever. Do you believe society could hate someone over their hatred of a color like green?
The answer is yes. There have been many people who have been injured or killed for wearing the wrong colors such as blue or red. I own a blue shirt and a red shirt and when I put them on I find myself wondering if I will be killed over a 5 dollar shirt. It’s not just in America, others can’t wear red for whatever dumb reason like this one. Would you be willing to kill someone over the color of their shirt or handbag?
Sgt. Sexy and I also discussed how some of these fights are down right dumb. I told him I would need to google some of these things, because now I’m curious. I thought about what dumb things I’ve fought about in my own life. Yes, I have argued over toilet paper, I’m not proud of it. I will continue to maintain that wasn’t my fault and it was also the breaking point of things that were boiling up for months. Never the less, I argued over toilet paper.
I will say the war over a loose dog is pretty bad. I know that couples fight over dumb things, such as toilet paper but the fight over imaginary money is pretty good too. After my google searching I realize it’s not today’s society that is dumb. The human race is dumb. We are just a bunch of hot heads running around being offended, ready for a good reason to tell someone off. As for killing over these things and peoples opinions I can’t do it.
Tell us in the comments what dumb thing you have fought over please! I’m hoping someone can beat my toilet paper fight.
