The world continues to spiral down into a black hole of insanity.
I used to be what was generally termed a Liberal. The older I get though, the more radical and anarchistic I seem to become.
What the fuck is it with all these movements? We have the Feminists, the Vegans, the Healthists, the Climate mob, the LGBTAlphaOmega crowd and others all crawling from under their rocks and demanding our attention and immediate action. It really has descended into total farce.
For example there was apparently a trivial [if rather nauseating] incident during the week on one of those horrible reality shows where a transgender made advances on a bloke and started screaming “transphobia” because those advances were rejected. Fucking hell! If I wasn’t transphobic before, I am rapidly becoming one now. Frankly if some ugly person with a baritone voice and a snide agenda made advances on me, I’d run a fucking mile. I have my standards even if they don’t fit in with the PC generation.
Then there is the current craze of the Feminists, ever since someone made a complaint about sexual harassment in Hollywood. Now I don’t agree with harassment but the latest movement has become more than a little tiresome. The more they scream about #MeToo [I honestly haven’t a fucking clue what that’s about] the less sympathetic I become to their cause, and at this stage my sympathy is all but gone altogether.
This morning I had a mail from that Avaaz gang screaming at me that the planet is doomed [“Doomed, I say. Doooomed!”] because we are eating meat and that we all must become Vegan. This is another movement that makes me want to rush off to the butchers and stock up on as much meat as the freezer will take.
I am tempted to start a couple of movements of my own. It seems to be the thing to do these days. No matter what your little gripe is, start a movement and you’ll instantly fire up the Keyboard Warriors into a frenzy of demands, even if they haven’t a clue what your gripe is about.
Let’s start with an “Eat a Vegan” month?
