We’re All Terrible People

…or at least giant hypocrites.

The last few weeks of social media have been interesting.

I have conservative friends who would punish their daughters for kissing a boy before she’s engaged stand up for Josh Duggar and say that him touching his sisters in their private parts while they sleep is “normal” behavior.

I have liberal friends who stand up for prison reform, and who demand that offenders who commit actual crimes against human people be given treatment instead of punishment for their violent crimes call for the guy who taped the dog’s mouth shut to be flayed alive.

Settle down. No one's talking to you right now, Ramsay.

I have friends who support their right to bear firearms, but do not support the right of people being unjustly arrested to fight back against cops without having to fear for their lives.

I have friends who will talk climate change all day long, but who swear by their Keurig cups.

For real, though I don't know how I survived all these years without these.

I have empathetic friends who swear off Game of Thrones because women get brutalized, but who weren’t troubled at all by the moments where men get gutted, burned alive, and tortured.

Even me. I’ve worked so hard at being an Oreo, but thanks to the recommendation of a few friends, I kind of want to watch Empire.

I’m not sure what to do about any of us. Except maybe stop with the facebook. But if you do see me watching Empire, go ahead and Game of Thrones me.

  1. I considered myself an oreo in high school, i like things that were considered ‘white’ but just just because i like them didnt mean I still didn’t like things that were considered ‘black’.

    As human beings were can be the biggest hypocrites but its only cause we’re trying to fit in or impress someone. We are quick to fargo our own beliefs or morality to cater to someone else’s.
