I am going to predict something. Have it on record that I said that this would come up as something that people would get angry about.
These days, women (and men) are coming out to finally tell the world that they have been abused. While I find this fairly amazing, I can see some huge problems coming. I have already heard the phrase "war on men" being thrown around. This is not what I'm worried about. I have a funny prediction that will ruin your Christmas season.
One of my favorite Christmas songs has always been "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Today I was listening to the song and I started to chuckle. The premise of the song is that the guy wants her to stay for another drink. That isn't that bad. What makes it fishy during this day and era is the way the phrases are just bad timing. "Say, what's in this drink" makes it sound like she is being date raped. "The answer is no" and the guy persists is just typical of what everyone would think of as abuse or harassment. By the way, these are HUGE stretches. I love this song.
I have had many debate about political correctness and being polite. One such conversation came up around the word retard. He didn't see why people couldn't us that anymore. He said that when he was growing up that if you were slow, you were a retarded. I had to point out to him that this wasn't a blanket term. Other disorders cause an impairment in learning such as downs syndrome, dyslexia, and others. Would you go up to a kid with one of those (my nephew is dyslexic) and call them a retard? No he agreed. Sometimes it is an issue of politeness. While you may have some basis for an argument at a very deep core, you need to keep your trap shut to avoid hurting someone's feelings.
The sad thing I see in this world is that people get joy in making other people hurt, as long as they are proving a point. Welcome to 2017. Let's do better in 2018.
