I don’t understand why my high school government teacher always tries to call me out on Facebook. I feel it was a mistake to add him. He likes controversy, I guess. But he’s definitely messing with the wrong person if he wants mental satisfaction.
This just further supports my theory that people take Facebook way too seriously. I posted a simple, silly status (accidental alliteration) about changing the punctuation and margin size on an essay to make it the full 8 pages. And he went all out on how I’m treating my education as a computer game. He’s welcome to read my 8 page essay on plastic pollution in the world’s oceans if that’s really what he thinks.
Why do people with seniority over me seem to think they have the right to treat me with disrespect? I’ve always felt that way, and it hasn’t changed even now that I’m in college. Probably the biggest grievance I hold with humankind is our need to be better than, and have power over others.
Sexism, sexual orientation discrimination, ageism, racism- all disgusting. Isn’t everyone in the world worth just as much as everyone else?
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
…they will not be judged by [their gender], but by the content of their character.
…they will not be judged by [their sexual orientation], but by the content of their character.
…they will not be judged by [their age], but by the content of their character.
Isn’t it all the same?
I don’t even care about any argument anyone gives on any of the topics I listed. There is no excuse for discrimination of any kind. A person is a person is a person. And who gets the right to say, “I’m better than you. I deserve more than you. You are beneath me because you are different”?
Excuse my language, but fuck that.
