Haven’t written anything in a while as I am going through another version of male menopause so have an excuse. The winter blahs and the changing world has made me feel like my last years will be spending a lot of time alone as it seems these days if you disagree with anyone’s point of view they get defensive and you are labelled a “phobia” something. I am not so much against others way of life but am against with the way things I disagree with are being forced upon me. Live your life the way you want but don’t take away my right to disagree with you.
Free speech has taken a big negative step in Canada under our play acting PM who has passed laws that prevent us from expressing our views. I don’t run around and look for media attention to make you accept my way of life so why must others force their views on us?
The TV, movies and commercial now must include a minority and it seems every relationship is now a white women and a visible minority. That is not real life, sure there are some but drives me crazy that the world is being portrayed in a false image. That may make me sound racist but next time you watch a movie or TV keep track of how many you see and then look around your neighbourhood and tell me if this is what you see. There I go again disagreeing and I can see the slings and errors heading my way. That is okay I was not born in the “snowflake” era and “stick and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me”.
It is strange that these things have been going on for hundreds of years but only now that they are on the front page has the world turned upside down and minorities now make the rules and laws for the majority. Now wonder we are in such a mess.
I will only be here for another 10 years or so and am glad I was born in a time when everybody seemed to respect others and we actually got along. Sure we had world wars but within our own borders life was pretty good. When the so-called sh*t hits the fan I feel sorry for those that will still be here and have to live in a world where freedoms will be repressed and discussion will be behind doors for fear of reprisal. So sad and not sure this broken world can be fixed.
Just my opinion and I think I can still express it but not sure how much longer I will be allowed to.
Have a great day and do it your way and let others think what they want as they will anyway.
