I love humans, but sometimes they disappoint me. If there was one sin humans carried with them, that’d be the sin of being judgemental with one another.
And while usually I make a conscious effort to not let it affect me… today I really couldn’t hold it, and I had to react to this ugly aspect of human psychology and behavior.
Today there was a post in this quite popular blog I sometimes visit which was a picture of a gorgeous woman in a cute and sexy dress, posing. However, the picture had a caption on top saying “look at me, look at my ass and boobies; but tell me something obscene and I’ll report you”. For clarification, the text was meant to be funny and ironic (?) and state how unfair it is, apparently, that a woman dresses sexy yet demands respect. Of course, in the thread below the picture these weren’t the terms used to express agreement with the retarded picture. People wrote things like “Agree, if she dresses ‘like that’ what does she expect?”. The most embarrassing part of all is that there were hundreds of such comments.
If you know me a little, you already know that at this point I was burning in anger.
I still don’t understand why dressing sexy or provocative is a reason to be denied respect. Where the fuck are these people reading such thing? In the book “Behavior guidelines for retards”?
As far as I know, even in the kinkiest of your dreams, you are always respectful and do ask for permission before touching anybody. Since when does pornography make person not a person? What do you know about that person, maybe she’s a nuclear physicist working hard to save the future of the planet, and she poses in her spare time. Or maybe she’s just a street stripper, anything wrong with that? As far as I am concerned, and according to what my morality guides me to think, people are always people. With no fucking conditions. Humans are humans, with their feelings, mistakes, beauty, baggage, dreams, joy, mysteries and love.
So please tell me, WHEN THE FUCK IS PEOPLE DOWNGRADED TO NOT-PEOPLE and so denied respect? Because I don’t think nor the Universal Declaration of Human Rights nor your religion of choice has a “terms and conditions might apply” with regards to considering all humans worth equal respect. I haven’t been notified of exceptions and limitations. There are NO such clauses. (and I’m bringing these two instances of external moral guidelines only because apparently many people can’t decide by themselves and need somebody else to write somewhere for them what’s good and bad)
In fact, if there was a reason to downgrade people to less-than-people, I’d be looking to those who promote war, those who do unfair trade, those who steal for their own benefit, those who build religions, those who repress people, those who abuse of children, those who kill. But, a woman… in… lingerie? WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU, HUMANS!
Clearly, some people don’t understand this language I’m talking here, nor the profound (yet simple) idea of respect that I find so natural. Maybe it’s too abstract for them, or their soul have been polluted with an external and these days rotten morality? In any case, for them, I’ll use a more plain language: if you teenager-minded man see a sexy picture that turns you on, great!!!, grab your dick and play with it in your intimacy, and leave your primitive comments in this blog for your retarded own. And you girl, if you see a woman in a sexy or porn picture and think she doesn’t qualify to be “a lady”, then go back to the 19th century and leave your jealousy or prehistoric values to yourself. We the rest, have moved on and plan to keep moving forward. Thanks very much!
Out of my anger, I did answer with those very words in the thread for that picture in the blog. Two minutes after I posted my message the administrators of the site responded and deleted the picture and the whole thread with it, including my and the other hundreds of messages.
So that image never happened. Also, clearly my message didn’t pervade.
Humans keep disappointing me
