Honestly, I’m tired. I’m tired of living in a society that pressures everyone into being the same. I’m tired of living in a society, specifically my generation, that has such a sense of entitlement and a lack of work ethic that they expect everything to be handed to them. I’m tired of growing up in a generation that is full of discrimation against gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, and ethnicity. This is NOT ok.
Growing up, I was always taught to accept people for who they are. My mom always told me that everyone is special in their own way so don’t judge someone before you really get to know them and know what they’ve been through. When I reached middle school, I was horrified. I was so confused as to how everyone could be so mean to each other. How could anyone call people names so harsh? Names that I had never even heard of up until that point in my life! And the teachers? They didn’t care. “This is part of growing up” “Get over it” “What am I supposed to do about it” “Well, if I didn’t see it, then it didn’t happen”… Seriously? You have people killing themselves over this type of thing, and you think there’s nothing you can do about it? C’mon now.
The biggest problem I have with this generation is how judgmental we are. We are judged by what we wear, what we say, our skin color, sexual orientation, gender, religion, everything! We are living in a life of technology where nothing is private anymore. If you want to know something about someone, all you have to do is look them up on Facebook or do a quick google search of their name, and BAM! Everything you could ever want to know about someone is right in front of you.
I believe that everyone should be able to express themselves any way they want. If you want to wear a cowboy hat with a short glittery skirt and a green shirt with a giraffe on it, then go ahead! But no, because if you did that, then people would hardcore judge you. They would point out all your flaws and make you feel like trash, just to make themselves feel better. People are becoming so insecure about themselves that they have to point out every little thing that is different than the “social norm” just to get a sense of satisfaction. Who cares if someone is gay? Who cares what skin color someone is? Who cares what someone decides to wear? Last time I checked, they didn’t wake up to please YOU.
OK, so now that I’ve vented a little bit, let’s get to the point. Everyone should be able to do what they want without being in fear of what other people think. I may only be one person, but I am making a stand against all of this because I can’t go on any longer watching this.
This is my first blog post, EVER! I think this will be fun, so gimme a follow to stay in touch with me!
