THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PUBLICLY DISPLAY THEIR OPINION ABOUT ANYTHING, NOW CAN. With the assistance of the WORLD WIDE WEB!!!!!
??? I hope at this point you are saying “duh, what’s your point?”
Which you should be! Other questions should be “Why is this weirdo using all capitals? Why is she so worked up about this? Why does this even matter?”.
In which case….
It’s because, although on the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter that an uncomfortable amount of people are:
- Backing Donald Trump for president
- Saying that fat people just need to be yelled at more to be skinny
- That all people on welfare should be drug tested
[pause for dramatic effect]
If you’re smart… you may be saying at this point, “well, but it does matter! I should stop reading now because that is so stupid I’m surprised we’re even mentioning it!” …In which case I will say KUDOS to you for using that large mass within your skull we call a “brain”. But bear with me…
I say it doesn’t really matter because it wouldn’t matter if people like us didn’t give it so much damn attention. I realize that is more irony thrown into the mix because I’m writing about it but I felt the ends justified the means here and I’ll keep it brief.
WHY THE F&*K ARE WE TALKING ABOUT AND SHARING THIS GARBAGE?!
Apparently when dumb people say dumb things on social media we feel the need to share it and advertise how dumb it is. But do you know what that does? It just promotes that dumb content to more people who catch on and say “oh yeah, I think the same way! Fuck those [insert random group of minorities being targeted this week]”.
WHAT THE HE**.
WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE SMART ONES. And yet, we continue to promote, share, and advertise these racist, rude, and immoral remarks all in the name of defacing them. How do we not see that by doing so we only work to promote the message that they intend to spread.
I need to stop now, because I’ve already gone on too long and done exactly what I’m messaging not to do. I hope it’s for a good cause. The next time you see an ignorant remark – please don’t share it. Share this instead.
