I usually try not to blog about controversial subjects. I like to keep things light and amusing here, because honestly, I can't take the drama. I don't need it and I don't want it. I've got enough of my own, thank you very much.
But sometimes I'll read something in the news that really pisses me off and I've got to get it off my size 40DD chest.
I think we, meaning Americans, need to stop being so freaking uptight. Some people need to pull the rod out of their ass and realize that this country is made up of all types of people. We all come from different backgrounds, different races, and different religions. We live in a FREE country that gives us the right to express ourselves in any way that we choose. That's why we live here, right?
I'm really tired of being told that I can't do this or I shouldn't do that because it might offend someone. I don't tell others how to live their life. I don't shove my views down anyone else's throat. I know that, even though I might not always agree or understand some one's ways, in the grand scheme of things, it's really none of my business. Just as it's no one else's business how I live my life.
Wake up people! It's called acceptance and tolerance!
Thirteen year old, Alex Woinski, from Paramus, NJ, was sent home from school by his principal because his Halloween costume was, "offensive to some students". The son of a Catholic mom and a Jewish father was told that, "it was disrupting the education process".
He dressed as Jesus Christ.
Are you kidding me? Sure kids, come dressed like the devil, or better yet a serial killer with blood dripping from your chainsaw, but don't you DARE dress like a Christian Saviour!
Yes, that would just be too objectionable.
For shame Principal Joan Broe, for shame.
