I hate the pc culture.
More then hate it, I loathe it.
It’s pretty ironic that the people saying that violence is not the answer, are now all over social media fighting for causes. We’ve moved from actual violence to words, it’s still fighting, but I guess humanity has not grown out of its need to fight something.
Pc culture has perverted the idea of freedom of speech.
Pc culture is killing humour.
Pc culture is nothing more then censorship, with a fancy new title.
In real life, you have a right to privacy and you also have a right to feel safe. We choose to look away from the tv, put down the newspaper, switch off from the world around us. The internet however, does not belong to you, it is for everyone. When you choose to go online, it is basically like walking through a really crowded shopping centre (mall). In that shopping centre there are a tonne of people spurting obnoxious opinions or walking into you and not noticing. We don’t expect people to bend to our wills in places like that, we accept that we are all there for a reason, to look at the shops, to buy stuff, we coexist with those people while we go about our business. The internet is a free reign place, just like a shopping centre, if you’re triggered by people in shopping centres, it is not up to every person in that shopping centre to not make you feel triggered, you just don’t go, or you don’t stay long.
Why do people expect others online to make sure that they don’t get triggered?
The thing is, I see it as bullshit that freedom of speech has been put into 2 categories now, freedom of speech and hate speech.
To me that is such a backwards statement, considering freedom of speech covers ALL speech, the moment you put something into another category you are basically making the whole concept of freedom of speech void.
Look, nobody is ever going to agree on everything, and yes it does suck that people still have some bigoted views on stuff. I’m not saying don’t argue back with them, the beauty of freedom of speech is that it’s open dialogue and we all say what we want.
But it just feels like, everybody has this need to be offended by something.
And if you’re a ‘social justice warrior’ who needs to ram your loud opinions down the throats of everyone who doesn’t agree with you, then you’re just as childish as the people you are fighting. Like watching a match of tennis between a giraffe and and a hippopotamus, fucking pointless because neither of them can hold a ratchet and hit the ball, so it just goes nowhere, just a bunch of animals making noise at each other. Because these arguments don’t change shit, they don’t help anyone, it’s just an excuse to be a self-righteous opinionated fuck.
Think about it this way, you’re prepared to fight tooth and nail from home while you’re behind a keyboard. It’s the safe way to fight. What would you actually do if you got faced with that same bigotry in real life, like in a violent situation? Would you risk your own safety defending a person that you don’t know? Would you actually try and help? Because if you wouldn’t then you ARE just an opinionated fuck who merely uses social media as a way to fight. You don’t stand for fucking anything, you’re just a child who needs validation that you’re right. Don’t pretend that you care about anyone asides from yourself.
But the beauty about the Internet is that you’re free to have those opinions. Free to have them, but nothing is ever free from criticism, this post included.
As much as I’ve put a lot of warnings up in the past for some of my posts, this is going to stop. If you can’t handle what I say, then don’t read my shit, it’s not up to me though to make sure people are going to be ok. We all have issues, we have all been through shit in our lives, what happened to hardening the fuck up? Facing shit head on?
There are so many rules to what’s appropriate and what’s not. Why is it now that if you choose not to talk about your problems, then you’re clearly not dealing with them? Why is there the argument of ending the stigma on mental illness, yet at the same time I’m reading references to people who don’t have mental illness as ‘normies’ or ‘atypicals’.
It’s fucking backwards guys, how do you expect to end any stigmas if you choose to segregate yourselves into the two categories of ‘mentally unwell’ and ‘normal’. It’s hypocritical, don’t whinge about the how fucking hard it is for you while simultaneously shunning the people who can make a difference and help.
I see people using the argument of freedom of speech used to get across opinions and then used again to shut people up in their opinions.
And my favourite one, the people who claim others aren’t open-minded while their own views are one sided. I’m sorry to tell you guys, but being open-minded is a viewpoint that not many people possess, myself included. Because being open-minded means you can see the value in all opinions.
It’s such a broad thing, like saying I don’t judge anyone. Fuck off you do, that’s a bullshit statement and you know it, we all judge, but that doesn’t mean that we act on those judgements.
The thing is, pc culture will never work properly, cutting out hate speech is not going to help anything, censoring everything that may offend people even a little is petty. We need to allow it so that we as people will always be challenged in our own morality. So that we learn to be better, to make changes in our own ways of thinking.
If you think that changing the world is cutting out all the shit that is unpleasant to you, then you need to think about what world you want to create.
I’d rather live in this supposed ‘corrupt’ world then a world created through pc censorship.
But this is just merely my own obnoxious opinion.
