What Society Thinks...

Have you ever had any problems with what society as a whole seems to think? Here are some things I've personally noticed:

-If you are married and never have kids, then it is because you are selfish or the woman is barren.

-If you are a guy who never marries, then you are gay.

-If you are a guy who is in a relationship for a long time but not married, then you are afraid of commitment.

-If you are proud of being white, then you are a white-supremacist.

-If you are proud of being a man, then you are sexist.

-If you are proud of being straight, then you are homophobic.

-If you are proud of being black (or any other ethnicity than white), a woman, and/or gay, then it is A-OK.

Anyone else notice these things? Anyone have anything to add?

The one that cracks me up is the "if you are proud to be white then you must be a white surpremist." It is funny because African-Americans have the BET channel, but I wanted to start an all white channel then I would be looked at as a racist. I tend not to really follow what society thinks. Societies ideas change everyday so i think it is best to form your own thought and beliefs and stick to them.

If you have a guys night out without consulting your woman, you aren't thinking of her.
If a woman has a girls night out without consulting her man, she's an independant woman.

If you sleep in, your woman tells you you're lazy. If she sleeps in, she's getting her beauty rest.

Ah yes! Going on what Druken said:

-If you don't get up by 8:00am (or maybe 9:00am at the latest) you are lazy, no matter what you do for a living or if you have the day off and nothing better to do.

-If you don't have a lot of things on your social schedule, you are a loser.

-If you don't have a lot of things to do during any given day and you're not hanging out with anyone, you are lazy.

-If you walk around at night (after midnight) you are a hooligan who is obviously up to no good (I've been stared at as I walked or rode my bike by people's houses).

If you sit behind a desk for a living then you have succeeded in life.
If you do manual labor for a living then you have failed at life.

If you take public transportation you are poor and can't afford a car.
If you drive a car you are killing the earth.

This would also hold true, like you are saying with BET, if someone started a "United caucasion college fund" devoted to help white children get an education to match the "United Negro college fund". That foundation would be blasted and sued siting racial discrimination.

Other things...

- If you are a contractor or construction worker, you must be uneducated, poor, and live in mobile homes.

- If you are a guy, and divorced, it had to be the guys fault :thumbdn:

- If your over 18 and play video games, your a geek

- If your white and own a shotgun or rifle then your a redneck

- If your black and own a cell phone, nice car, or beeper then your a drug dealer

- If you have more than one child you need to have them no more than 2 years apart so they will grow up "closer", otherwise they wont get along :???:

- If you live in West Virginia, you must be dating or married to a relative

- Every woman singer, neighbor, actress, dancer, model, news anchor, comedian, cheerleader, ex-girlfriend is a "total slut" to your current GF or Spouse

what bothers me is:

if mtv says it, it has to be true

if you hold opinion x, that is different than my value y, i somehow become a mental invalid for my opinion

and also, when society quickly latches onto a commodity- a current example: everyone owns an ipod, it is the best invention ever, it has completely changed the music industry and the proof is it appears on the cover of major magazines and adstories within as "news"

Well the funny thing about that is that you wont find any "black culture" on BET, the show is actually marketed to white children. If you've ever watched it its completely devoid of anything related to black culture even the things it claims to have, like hip hop. there?s no hip hop on BET just like there?s no rock and roll on MTV, its just cheep marketing sham impressions of it.

If you wanted to start an all white channel you would have allot of competition because as it is nearly every other channel is exactly that. White men in suits deciding what gets aired with hidden agendas. Here?s a quip to think about, all of the media giants in the U.S. have connections or ties to the industrial weapons complex.

The reason why people who are proud to be white get lashed out against is because of the nature of the past actions of humanity, do I need to go over the KKK, FBI, KGB, Hitler and the prison system? Because for hundreds of years these proud to be white groups and many others have been killing, oppressing, repressing and suppressing the everything of nearly every other culture in the world, people are a tad bit bitter.

OMGOMG 1337 HATES tEH US~!!@one!1 One thing that all the organizations I listed had in common is shooting and killing black people. KKK is a no brainer, FBI, remember the black panthers and freedom fighters in Africa? KGB, no duh its Stalin who killed everyone. Hitler.... well yeah its Hitler.

The reason why there is a need for all these places and institutions is because these people are minorities and the laws of the land DO NOT PROTECT THEM. Were dealing with absurd majority rules situations where the smaller portions of the populations get left behind because effectively they have no say in their future. we have no rights! we have no future! no reasons why, we're born to die

so rather doing the smart thing and fucking resisting and fighting for their rights, they form little things like collage funds and soup kitchens that target specific minority groups. While on principal I agree, that a Mexican only collage fund, is in its own was racist, its a product of people being reactionary.

The things I hate about today?s culture is how all revolutionaries are branded as violent and crazy, and in this new era, terrorists. Even those groups that specifically have a anti-violent platform are considered terrorists like the Zapitesta in Mexico.

I hate the apathy and lack of humanity people show towards each other, like there are people in my history class who didn't know that 150,000 people died in Asia by the big waves (to put it lightly).

I hate the intellectual pacification that goes on everyday that turns some potentionaly bright people in to zombies for brand name clothing and social gender roles.

I hate every token black, Asian or what ever character that has ever been in any show ever, your not breaking down racial barriers, your reinforcing them!

I hate every person who think they have some god given right to decide when people have rights and when people don't. The jackass 15 year old who says that so and so's music shouldn't be played blah blah blah.

I hate every homophobe on this planet and all the legal institutions that prevent gay people from living their lives to their fullest potential. This includes any person who uses the word gay as a negative descriptor.

I hate how Anarchists, Communists and Socialists are branded as violent crazy faces radicals who want to abduct your children and unleash chaos upon the world and all that other nonsense.

I hate all those idiots who buy a t-shirt from some sweat shop chain store like stitches with a bastardized anarchist a on it for ruining the imagery of a political movement and being so stupid as to think it stands for chaos.

I hate presidents, I hate congressmen, I hate cops.
