Ideas that only exist existentially because the idea is something that has to become in order to exist (one isn’t born angry but one can become angry):
“White privilege (Google definition I found)
White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. [note 1] These privileges are unearned and are distributed based on values of the dominant group.”
Then again, below is CNN’s newest definition. CNN is the most arrogant, slanted and morally bankrupt excuse for a news organization. And, they are as un-American as one can be. #BoycottCNN
This is absurd and I have never felt more underprivileged in my life. At no time have I ever benefitted from being white-skinned, or incidentally, freckled or tall. But, I have taken a lot of crap for being a woman from the south.
The issue of rights for women first became prominent during the French and American revolutions in the late 18th century. In Britain it was not until the emergence of the suffragette movement in the late 19th century that there was significant political change. A ‘second wave’ of feminism arose in the 1960s, with an emphasis on unity and sisterhood”
I was okay with this until I got to the last line. What has evolved from the 60’s definition is the militant everything is discriminatory in the second millennium that protest has become a form of political correctness warfare that is anything but a representative of sisterhood. As a female it is an insult of egregious proportions to females everywhere because today’s feminists would rather protest over free birth control and other divisive measures yet say nothing about acid being thrown in the face of a women from a middle eastern country or, for that matter, the rape or marriage of a 6-year-old to a 40-year-old man whose “religion” says it’s okay and proper to do.
I thank God every second of every hour of every day that I am not a feminist.
Global Warming or Climate Change as some would have you believe as the biggest threat to the economy, freedom and world security. I ain’t buying it. But, I will debate you on seasons. There are four. Global Warming is conflated because it is profitable.
Get a grip. I don’t have a rolling my eyes button.
Living in the same “microcosm” as everyone else I am constantly amused and often horrified about the bulk of stupid that is encompassing it. Enough said I guess because sometimes you just have to call things out.
