It’s Life People

I read (and shared) a meme that said, “Real friends don’t get offended when you insult them.  They smile and call you something even more offensive.”  I have several real friends like this.  When something is said that is just simply untopable, the response is usually, “Shit, that’s brutal, but funny!”

Why are people getting so butt hurt over things that have nothing to do with them?  Shit, these days, if you have an opinion that someone doesn’t share, they go cry, protest, and incite violence.  Why?  Are these people so emotionally invested in an off-the-wall topic that they feel betrayed by people they don’t even know?   Some people will cry, go on hunger strikes, and riot (violence is violence regardless of the weapons used) just because a political figure does not stand on their side.  There are over 7 billion people on this planet.  If you expect even half of these people to get along, you are dumber than a box of rocks in the trash.

People have been killing each other for the dumbest of reasons since the beginning of recorded history.  We are still doing it.  Those who claim to be “enlightened” are rarely even close.  If you are offended because someone does not share your view, there is probably someone who is offended you do not share theirs.  There should be debate about topics without throwing emotion and personal attack into the mix.  This is life people!  Grow up!  No one really gives a shit about your opinions.  No one really gives a shit about mine!  Do I care?  No!  Am I going to get hurt because of it?  No!  Am I going to incite violence and cry like I did the first time I smashed my thumb with a hammer?  No!  Will I give my opinion anyways?  Fuck yeah, I will!  You do not have to like me (or my opinions), but you will know how I feel.  If you do not want to talk to me after that, that is your issue, not mine.
