Saad22 saidThanks a lot, very inspiring and beautiful message
You're welcome man. And we're gonna win this. It may not be in my generation or yours. But our little truth is gonna keep burning through their mounds of bullshit.
Keep in mind that it was only 500 years ago that they admitted to the earth revolving around the sun. They're not very bright; slow to learn. So whenever you are feeling down about it just Nuke a Gay Whale for Christ. I wore that button in my college years in the 70s. It shows how ridiculous is the world. Keep that truth in mind: they're the crazy ones, not us.
Their life is not yours, man. Just live yours. You can view them as attacking, and sometimes that view is unavoidable, but mostly you can view them as entertaining. It's like watching the village idiot only in our case the village is an idiot. You're plenty smart and strong enough to do that.
Just like you did it here when...
Saad22 said...it is nice to know, that no matter what I go through, I will have a comfortable bed, a warm meal at night when I come home. It's more than a lot of people can hope for. I'm aware of that,ok maybe I am not completely aware of it, I've never had to live in those conditions. But I try not to take for granted everything that I've got. But please , just because I find that there is something distressing and wrong with my life, it doesn't mean I disregard all the good things that I have. We all strive to make our lives better, and considering that fulfilling our basic needs is the key to happiness , is like completely ignoring the highs and lows, the mechanisms of the human mind....
...because you've an excellent understanding and offer a good critique of #firstworldproblem bullshit. On the one hand it's cute and convenient to say, well, that's not really a problem because of x & y elsewhere. But it also is a little silly to relate on a 1:1 scale first/third world problems. If you look at Nobel Laureates per country per capita, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_Nobel_laureates_per_capita
you'll notice not a lot of scientific awards handed out in Biafra. They were a little too busy finding food to bother with the evolution of their thoughts.
I'm just waiting for someone to mention "What do you mean you think you have a weight problem? The people on the moon or on Mars don't have a weight problem. Gravity is such a #firstworldissue!"
Meanwhile, in that starving third world, if a mother had only enough food for one child to survive and knew intuitively that one of her babies was gay, who would she sacrifice? I doubt we have data but I suspect this not just a 1stworldproblem. Now how entertaining is that?
