There was a very good opinion piece in the Irish Times yesterday.
Frankly there is little to argue with there.
I get the impression though that the piece was written before the upheaval in Google, where a bloke was fired for stating the bleeding obvious: that in effect women are biologically different from men.
So here we have two cases. One is where some fucking bimbo listened into a private conversation and one where a bloke just states a fact.
In the first case, the storm was caused by a “tweet”: “Just overheard 2 @AmericanAir attendants having a transphobic talk. We should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity.”
Point 1. “Overheard”? Therefore the bimbo wasn’t even part of the conversation but was listening into something that was none of her fucking business.
Point 2. What the fuck is “transphobic” anyway? Is this the new fad, that anything that offends you is some sort of phobia?
Point 3. Is Bimbo a “trans”? Was she[/he?] personally offended or was Bimbo being offended on behalf of others? What you might call Second Hand Offence? If the former then tough fucking shit – don’t listen in to private conversations If the latter then it is none of your fucking business.
In the second case I gather the storm is over a statement that women are biologically different and therefore suited to different jobs. What’s wrong with that? Why the hell should a bloke lose his job over something that is patently obvious since the dawn of Man?
This political correctness has gone far too far. Personally I blame three groups.
The first group are those who read offensiveness into just about anything. If you are personally offended then tough shit. Grow a pair of balls and stop whining. If you are suffering from Second Hand Offence then you are worse – you are policing on behalf of others who may not even be offended themselves. Mind your own fucking business.
The second group is the Keyboard Warrior – straining at the leash to whip up a storm of righteous indignation without knowing any of the facts, and in most cases, just following the herd. You lot too can mind your own fucking business.
The third group are the saddest of the lot – those who take notice of these twitter storms – the police, the lawmakers and the mainstream meeja. By listening and acting upon these self-righteous cunts they are merely propagating and encouraging the mindless herd.
And I hope someone takes offence at this little brainfart.
