First off if you think I’m going to denounce any violence and negativity on the internet, you can alt-f4 right now.
[EDIT: I would like to say here that this article does not target groups of people for being different, or endorse hate for these groups, only that there is more than enough room for improvement from everyone, and these are the areas where improvement can be made. ~Jeremy]
I am sick and tired of hearing about safe spaces. Get over it. The world is inherently NOT your friend. This is doubly true online. Social Media / Social networking is a scam. There is nothing social about it. Unless that’s truly how degraded the world has become that people saying things with ambiguity and or even of no relation to any subject for which butt-hurt bubble children are offended can be taken as a threat of the end of the world. Yeah, about that too, You might be that important to you, but until You make yourself that important to everyone else, by works and actions, You’re simply not important. You are not the world and you never will be if you don’t get out of the cardboard box that you pretend is an ivory tower.
I don’t care what you uncle has done to you. I don’t care what sexuality you have. I don’t care if you feel like a woman stuck in a man’s body. But when you shove it in my face, damn straight I’m going to fight back. Safe spaces. What a load of bull crap. When I was a kid, my safe space was in my mom’s arm. That stopped when I was about 8 years old. Am I butt hurt about it? No! Why? Because that’s the natural, healthy thing for a child. Being coddled well into adulthood is absolute nonsense and needs to stop. You need to grow the fuck up and stop acting like a spoiled little bastard.
Queer, Fagot, Gay. Words which had nothing, historically, to do with homosexuallity and the sexually deviant. But now, – OH but now, this will most certainly be the first post I’ve made that will have comments on it. Why? Because I said those three words. Again, get over it and grow up. Here’s some definitions for you to learn:
1.spoil or ruin (an agreement, event, or situation).“Reg didn’t want someone meddling and queering the deal at the last minute”
a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel.
a bundle of iron rods bound together for reheating, welding, and hammering into bars.
Full Definition of gay
1 a : happily excited : merry <in a gay mood> b : keenly alive and exuberant : having or inducing high spirits <a bird’s gay spring song>
3 : given to social pleasures; also : licentious
4 a : homosexual <gay men> b : of, relating to, or used by homosexuals <the gay rights movement> <a gay bar>
I don’t give a shit if these words offend you when I use them. As long as I use these words in a respectful way with an intention of a proper definition and without being derogatory, then you’re being offended over nothing. Or more so, over English Language. Notice how there are many other definitions for each word? Yeah, probably not because you’re lacking a proper education. I’m sorry that you’ve been failed as a child, but you’re an adult now and need to take responsibility for yourself. Stop trying to dictate your lifestyle and your idiocy upon everyone else.
Now I suppose that if you, the reader are still with me, You are either educated enough to not be offended, or you’re super pissed off right now and are thinking of ways to harm me or my reputation in a legal way, or possibly illegal way. What ever, do what you feel like. I’ve said my peace.
Does this mean I inherently hate the homosexual community? NO. It don’t. It means I’m fucking tired of people pushing their own bullshit on me because they feel like that my sole existence is offensive to them. And I’ve done not a damned thing to be offensive, other than be alive. If you feel so insecure that you need to run away from me to be in a safe space, then you need to stay off the internet.
Oh, but you’re a LBGTSA what ever other letters you want to add to that, programmer and exist on the internet? Well, This is part of the real world now. Pull up your pants (or your skirt I guess, guys), grow up and DEAL WITH IT. You think us straight normal people don’t have shit to deal with? We’ve got retarded assholes that can’t handle somewhat stressful situations complaining that they’re entitled to being treated better than everyone else. And not all of them are homosexual or trans.
I have stress in my own life. I’m working to build myself as an income generating person (i.e. Not working for anyone else, but solely for myself) And that’s fucking hard. Am I screaming at society, saying that I’m entitled to have things because I am me? No. Would society laugh in my face and tell me to go away? Most assuredly, Yes. Why? Because society does not intend to support me when I am a capable and able person. That’s just the most recent stress. How about all the unfinished things I’ve got around the house? Family members being in hospitals, and others going through shit that would make you take a shotgun to your face – And doing with as much grace and gratitude as is possible in their positions. That wears on me – but I’m not begging society to keep me safe from the facts that death happens. I can’t help these people, I’m not God, except in my own special little world where I wake up from every morning.
Do you know what I am entitled to? I am entitled to being allowed to live. I am entitled to being allowed to make my own way in this world. I am entitled to breath the air, drink the water and shit. That’s all. Everything else society has come together and said, “You know, it would be nice if we had cleaner, cooler air in our homes; to have clean water delivered on call to our homes; to have waste removal and processing so we don’t live in feces” And because of society, we have these things.
And it just occurred to me that these man-child people don’t know what society is. It is not a thing. It is not government. It is not some person in office dictating errata. No! Society is all of us. It is the largest group of people to exist. We are in an age of global society. But we still have national societies, broke up into smaller groups right down to that society called family.
Here’s another definition for you, this time specific to the definition for which I am using:
1.the aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community.“drugs, crime, and other dangers to society”
synonyms: the community, the (general) public, the people, the population;
This is something I feel has been lost in general.
I do have to apologize for this post as I have allowed myself to be emotionally driven to write this. As such, there may be errors in grammar and use of words I would otherwise not have used in a post on BluntAboutIt.com – This said, I am not going back to edit this and truly hope that those who are offended by this post may learn something from the words I have written and become less obsessed with being offended and maybe, just maybe, get pissed off enough to stop trying to hide from society and the responsibilities of being a member thereof. Safe Space, Entitlement, The fuck is this? Nazi Germany? Get over it. You’re not being hunted down like Jews in the holocaust and you’re not getting shit for just being. The same as I get nothing for just being.
