Oh God, where do I start? There’s loads I’d want to change about the world, but I think what I long for most is for people to accept and respect each other.
I actually had a very heated discussion with someone today about the US Weekly cover with Elton John, David Furnish and their adorable baby Zachary that got a “family shield”. The fact that someone saw it necessary to “protect” children from two loving parents who finally have a baby of their own makes me so angry. In my opinion, children need protection from the people who think such a shield is necessary. I sure as hell wouldn’t want my kids around a bunch of ignorant and intolerant a*holes.
Unfortunately, not everybody feels this way. As mentioned, a heated debate took place today between me and some girl. I won’t bore y’all with the entire conversation, but here’s how it ended:
Girl that shall remain nameless: “Oh but I’m not saying it’s their fault. They can’t help it, it’s a disease.”
At that point I totally lost my cool. I honestly wanted to grab her by the hair and smack her head against the table, but they frown upon that at our university so I decided against it. All I said was “You know what? You’re not worth it” and walked away very calmly. I was boiling inside, though. I simply cannot fathom the audacity of people like this!
… I just realized that this post started out with me wishing for people accepting and respecting each other. Ha. But no, I can’t respect people like these. I’d buy them a ticket for Oceanic Flight 815 (LOST, anyone?) any day.
Anywho, to get back on topic – Yes, there should be more acceptance and respect… Except for people who don’t show any.
