I just don’t know what is going on in this country. First, that piece of shit college swimmer rapes a woman and only gets 6 months in jail. And now I read that there are fundraising sites being set up to help his family with their “mounting legal fees.” Has anyone set up an account the help his victim pay for the years of counseling she will need? Has that judge took 1 second out of his day to consider that that douche bag will be out of jail in only 6 months despite causing that poor woman a lifetime of pain and trauma?
Then we have yet another hate crime against the LGBTQ community. Orlando and its community members will never be the same after what happened. All because someone doesn’t like the “gay lifestyle??” And what “lifestyle” is that exactly? A lifestyle of loving another person, marrying another person, and raising kids with another person just like “straight” people do? Oh my! How dare they??
What this all comes down to is a complete disregard for the fact that we are all humans- no matter our gender/gender identity, sexual preference/orientation, political affiliation, religion, etc..
Why can’t people just accept one another’s differences? There are plenty of things I don’t like about people or what they believe, but I would never attack or harm any of them! I don’t agree with a lot of things, but I don’t go around persecuting people because they are different from me or because they believe different things from what I do! If we were all the same this would be a very boring world for sure.
There’s not much that I hate -other than cigarette smoke, fish/seafood and most green vegetables 😉
And notice, the things I hate are not characteristics of people, but I will proudly admit that I hate ignorance and stupidity and anyone who possesses these qualities.
When it comes to people who possess those qualities, all I can say is this: Ignorance and hate, hate and ignorance. They go hand-in-hand. Because you can’t hate without also having a small mind…
