A cranky Opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following is the opinion of a simple stupid cranky old man who may have had a glass or two of wine too many. Opposing opinions probably will be very sensitive and accepting as opposed to my bigoted disgusting stupid white cranky old man opinions. I am sorry.
No opinions? Oh, I have opinions. I have lots of opinions. I am just afraid to voice them.
Are there any opinions today that don’t offend someone? Are we stuck in a society where we must first consult a poll before we dare to voice an opinion?
Are we locked into an opinion such that if we decide to change our mind…TOO LATE, in 1998 you said, XXX, so therefore get in your box, we know who you are!
I have opinions, I am just afraid to voice them. I am insensitive, I am misogynistic, I am clearly xenophobic, and I don’t even know what that means. I am obviously a racist because I am white and I vote Republican most of the time…OK, ALL the time.
What, like you’ve ever voted non-Democratic?
I have an opinion on undocumented aliens. I used to call them illegal aliens because they were here illegally, but I now know that that is insensitive so I call them undocumented. I myself am an undocumented genius.
I used to favor immigrants that followed the rules and had something special to offer this great country, but I have been educated to understand that we need diversity, and if that means we accept some unemployables, misfits, terrorists, and ignoramuses, then that is diversity, and diversity is good.
Of course, smokers are bad, we don’t need that kind of diversity. I hate smokers. Now if you are addicted to heroin or cocaine or meth, then we need to understand and help you; but smokers? We need to hate smokers.
I am an ignorant person. I don’t understand why a man who feels like a woman will get a sex change and then become a lesbian. Why not just be an effeminate man that likes women? I don’t judge sexuality, really, I don’t. I don’t understand, but then some people do not understand heterosexuality. None of my business. I just want people to be happy and productive.
I have had gay people I thought were my friends call me a Breeder. Apparently, that is what gay people call straight people…Breeders; like all we do is breed and procreate. Is that insensitive? Can't be, gay people are never insensitive, they get a free pass.
Is being a Breeder a bad thing? I don’t know anymore. I was offended, but then I know I am not particularly enlightened. I probably am not allowed to be offended.
I no longer know what to say. If you say “mankind” you are a pariah…apparently it is now “people-kind.” How do some languages still exist that put a gender on everything?
In French, is a chair le chaise or les chaise?
Do the French now fight about the gender of every object in their language?
I am just a simple stupid cranky old man. Do we get any special treatment? Why aren’t people sensitive to simple stupid cranky old men.
Why can’t I say Black instead of African American and be accepted because I am just a simple stupid cranky old man?
Give me some room.
I like all kinds of people. I am still just a little politically incorrect. Everything changes too fast for me to adjust. I am just a simple stupid cranky old man.
I don’t know why Oriental is so bad and Asian is just fine. I don’t understand why Black is bad, but African American is fine. I understand that Wop is bad, because an Italian will kick your ass, but Black used to be OK, then it became African American and now it all depends. I do know that Towel-head is offensive, but I also have trouble with knowing who is Indian, Iranian or Pakistan, and the wrong identification will make people really angry.
I don’t know where I am going with this, I guess my point is that I am a simple stupid cranky old man. I don’t want to offend anyone. I like most people I have ever met. You know who I don’t like? I don’t like cheats and crooks and assholes.
There are cheats and crooks and assholes from all colors, cultures, religions, genders and sexual preferences. Some of the biggest cheats, crooks and assholes I know are straight white men.
I pretty much like everyone I have ever met and I hate everyone else.
It does not matter your religion, your race, your culture, your gender, your sexual preference, if I have not yet met you, I hate you. If I get to know you, I will probably end up liking you…unless you are a crook, a cheat or an asshole.
Meanwhile, I am just a simple stupid cranky old man…don’t hate me.
The preceding was the opinion of a simple stupid cranky old man who may have had one too many glasses of wine. It is not necessarily the opinion of management…Mrs. Cranky.
