Please waste your time on me.
You had to hand it to human beings. They had one of the strangest powers in the universe. Even her grandfather had remarked upon it. No other species anywhere in the world had invented boredom. Perhaps it was boredom, not intelligence, that had propelled them up the evolutionary ladder. Trolls and dwarfs had it, too, that strange ability to look at the universe and think ‘Oh, the same as yesterday, how dull. I wonder what happens if I bang this rock on that head?’
And along with this had come an associated power, to make things normal. The world changed mightily, and within a few days humans considered it was normal. They had the most amazing ability to shut out and forget what didn’t fit. They told themselves little stories to explain away the inexplicable, to make things normal.
“boys will be bo-“
*punches you in the face*
bOYS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE
for all genders and ethnicities and just everything
one damned line
one damned standard
if it’s not then fuck off i don’t think your standard is valid
((I’d like to add that I don’t mean to say draconian standards that meet crimes with black and white punishments, more that we shouldn’t excuse people because of who they are, only for the circumstances under which they did those things. I actually believe in a decentralized legal system. This is more to do with personal assessments towards others. Thank you for your time.))
YAY I’M HYPER
oh i forgot how embarassing that is
Are you resolute?
If someone is making a declarative statement then they should be sure that they mean what they’re saying.
I know what seems really simple and obvious, but is it? Do you think most people actually think long and hard about their statements from the outside before they state them? Do they share them after they’ve sat for a bit thinking about the responses and retorts? Or do you think they just post something they’ve heard and will defend it like a blind zealot because it makes them feel like they’re on the ‘right’ side?
From what I’ve found, people that make ‘hard’ declarative statements are either saying relatively simple and uncontriversial things, or they’re parroting something that they read without researching it. Very rarely do I see people making absolute statements about things without leaving a way out.
Let me be clear though, leaving a way out is perfectly fine with me. I think it should be with everyone. At least that person is actually saying what they mean. If someone isn’t quite sure then they should simply say “I’m not sure” at some point. If it’s their opinion or what they feel then they should state that. If they read it in a paper then they should mention that, even if they can’t remember the paper. It goes on. Just mean what you say, and explain what you mean.
Sorry I changed tense halfway through…like twice or something. It’s 5:35am
