I don’t even know where to start with this post, considering I haven’t written since July of 2016. It is now gearing towards the end of January 2017, and to be completely honest, not a whole lot has changed. Actually, things have been quite pretty damn boring. I’m still struggling with the same things as last year. Once again I deleted my Facebook because SURPRISE, Donald Trump is
our President. Terrifying, I know. That’s not the reason I deleted it though, but the fact that IGNORANCE is everywhere is what scares me the most. No, let me rephrase that. Ignorance doesn’t scare me, it’s the way people are responding to it. You try to educate them all you want, but they don’t care to listen. They spew “word vomit” (Mean Girls reference, duh), and post shit that they WANT people to argue about, just to start an argument. Then of course they get mad when people who actually know what they’re talking about talk and have strong opinions.
That’s the thing with social media. People use it as an outlet. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, and I’m totally for it, but the amount of times I roll my eyes from the SAME DAMN POST, is getting old. We try to educate, we try to get through to them, but they don’t care to see it. For example, this woman I went to high school with posted something one day and all she kept saying was “well I keep seeing this everywhere”, or “well I heard…”, but did you, did you really? Did you see or hear this stuff and say, “hmm, I should research this before I post a long Facebook post about it”? NO. You did not. You posted it anyway with a lot of invalid points that you don’t even want to try to back up. And that brings me to my next point. BACK. YOUR. SHIT. UP. Man oh man, that is what IRKS me to my very core. Don’t start something if you can’t defend yourself or prove your point, it makes you look like an idiot.
If we have different political views, fine. You do you, bae. If you post your different political views on social media, also fine, again, you do you. BUT IF YOU POST YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU HAVE NO CLUE-OR DIDN’T EVEN VOTE, THEN DON’T POST ANYTHING. Seriously. REFRAIN. I voted, and I too have opinions. I also stated those opinions in a way that I wasn’t negative towards people and maybe posted a few funny memes because why not? This is the internet.
If you don’t understand something. Don’t talk about it. People won’t think any less of you…okay that might not always be true depending on the person, but ya know. It really doesn’t hurt to educate yourself if you want to have intelligent conversations with people. It might actually come in handy some day! Who would have thought?
