You know, sometimes I miss using song lyrics as the headers for my entries, but as one irate person commented on a years old blog entry, my “shitty bitching” popped up on their google search while they were searching for the lyrics to said song.
I mean, I’m not going to quit doing things just because they piss one little person off, but it just so happened that said irate blogger had a point.
Anyway, that’s not even what I came here to talk about.
Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, but it seems that I’m a much more chill person about some things than I used to be.
I’m still not sure about the structure of that sentence but I’ve typed it like 4 or 5 different times and it still doesn’t sound right. Anyway…
It seems like I give less and less of a shit what other people do, or what they like. In a good way, though. Like, hey, if I don’t like something, I’m just going to fucking ignore it. And I’m not going to give people that like it a hard time. Why would I want to drag someone down over something they like?
I mean, there is lots of shit I don’t care for in the least, like country music, most conservatives, Fifty Shades of Grey, and so on, but I just leave it at that. I mean,I can state that I don’t like it and move on.
In some ways I feel a bit behind because I should have realized some of these things a long fucking time ago. And with this, I kind of did. I just noticed gradually that I gave less and less of a shit about things that didn’t matter.
Like for instance, if something isn’t hurting you, fucking ignore it. Don’t like country? Don’t listen to it. Don’t like lima beans? Don’t eat them. Don’t like abortions or gay marriage? Don’t get one.
I’m not sure why people get all up on their high horse about some of that crap.
It’s what the bullshit christian argument over gay marriage, abortion, and whatnot boils down to.
You can think something is wrong all you like, we live in a country that allows that sort of thing. What you aren’t allowed to do is force and push your beliefs on other people and want to run an entire country based on avoiding something you dislike.
Just because you hate something or it offends you, doesn’t mean you have the right to ban it for other people.
Now me personally, I don’t know how I feel about abortion. No woman should be forced to have a baby she doesn’t want, or can’t afford,
Now me? Even if I could financially support a baby as well as myself, I know I couldn’t handle it emotionally. Now babysitting, I’d be down for. I like kids, they’re silly, they’re goofy, and I wouldn’t mind maybe planting some seeds in their head that I wish someone had planted in mine when I was a kid. But I know I could never handle being a parent as a full time job, which is what it is.
Even though I consider life to be kind of special, I would never want to force another woman to go through with a pregnancy, just based on that. It’s none of my business.
It’s the same with gay marriage. I can’t believe that we’re ignoring real problems like bailing out banks, giving tax breaks to the wealthy, all the chemicals put in our food, purposely not improving inner city areas because poor people and people of color happen to live there, pushing aside renewable energy, and on and on, in favor of an argument we shouldn’t even still be having in twenty fucking thirteen.
Even if you don’t agree with it. I personally think as long as you and the person you want to marry are both of age and consenting, fucking go for it. Any color of the rainbow, any gender or no gender or what the fuck ever, do what you want. It doesn’t affect me in the slightest.
I mean, I personally agree with whatever. You were born in a man’s body but you’re a girl? Cool, I have a girl friend instead of a boy friend. Identify as genderqueer? Nice, just let me know which pronouns to use so I don’t offend you.
Like even if all that stuff offended me it wouldn’t be my place to say. It’s your house and your life, do whatever the fuck you want. Until it starts straying into bullying territory or something. I honestly don’t give two shits what anyone else does unless it starts being controlling, or shitty, or something. I’m fine with people being christian, what I’m not fine with is cults like the westboro baptist “church” spewing hate in the name of their god. Things like that. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, do whatever the fuck you want.
I guess what I started off saying is that over time in certain instances I find myself caring less and less about things that don’t really matter.
Of course, this is a fairly good day as far as mood and anxiety go, I’m sure my view would be a little skewed if I were having a high anxiety day. Of course, even though I’m working at it, there’s still a lot of progress I still have to make and lots of things I still have to do. It’s just that at random times, little thoughts like these pop into my brain.
Speaking of doing things I have some laundry to get to
