How To Deal With Fuckers 1.0

I try to be nice. Oh my goodness, I try, and it takes a LOT of self control so lets welcome in the FUCK IT ALL hour wherein I express myself and my opinions no holds barred. Sorry not sorry. So here are some situations you may find yourself in, as I have over the past few days, and how  to deal with it.

Situation no.1 > Someone you’re “friends” with on Facebook shares something that is simply offensive to any group of people who doesn’t share whatever twisted belief they’re holding. Maybe they don’t do it specifically to be offensive, maybe they think they’re being considerate (?!?). Maybe they think its a joke. Here’s a newsflash people, the suffering of a large group of people through centuries of oppression and hate is not funny. It is not okay. It is not okay to then have the utter kick in the balls view that IT IS CHILDISH OR POINTLESS to say “no, not okay, don’t do it.”
What to do here is stick to your guns, let them know, calmly whilst boiling inside, why what they’re saying is hurtful to a lot of other people and why that is more important than their humour. And then block them from Facebook. No, it’s not harsh, It isn’t a big deal, its simply having a zero acceptance policy on hate and that’s how we should be. Get woke people, seriously. Its a social media site not the hunger games.

Situation no.2> Maybe someone you know tries to use religion to pass the blame for their hatred and act innocent or high and mighty. Here’s a thing > I’m not Christian, but I like to be aware of different points of view in order to construct a fair opinion and argument. I went to church this morning, Pride yesterday. I look shit up, I read the bible. There is an awful lot in there about love and one tiny tiny sentence on lying with men as women. Besides can we please open our eyes to the fact that the bible was written an Incredibly long time ago, when women and black people were slaves, children were made pregnant and disease was incurable and you could die from measles or a cold, as well as translated from Latin by Male monks for mass production. When we study history we look at bias and the validity of something written by a certain kind of people for a certain audience. How has this been allowed to become so representative of Christianity, that people take it word for word.
Solution, take a really deep breath. Back away. If you’re feeling strong, collect your supporting evidence and make a stand. It is always worth speaking your view but also some people are unable to forge their own beliefs and think for themselves, do not worry that you arent getting through because trust me some people are broken in their sense of what is right and wrong, selfish and lonely people who think they have god but when they are old and full of hate they will sorely regret doing so. But always fight, always air yourself. Definitely be proud to be educated and open to people who arent the same as you and the fact that if somebody else gets married to someone of the same gender it doesn’t invalidate your own beliefs. Christianity isn’t a special little group or club just for you my love. It’s a wider set of beliefs and hope that can be used to support some people. Others have other things. Neither is wrong.

What is wrong is hate. What I’d love more than anything would be to be able to teach children about equality and kindness, to help them about that time where they feel so insecure and alone and give them the self confidence to not need to hate others to feel good about themselves. And honestly, that’s the best thing we can do right now. Educate your children, because they are pulling us out of the pit of ignorance that pulls us back.
