I know, I am stepping out on a limb here and maybe I will get some kind of education here, and yet I can not move on and do the things required without getting this off my chest, out of my mind, and move forward with other wonderful things!
As far as I am concerned the University of Tennessee has gone way too far with the suggestion that students no longer use pronouns that establish a gender. I kid you not! They have created their own words. Instead of he or she they would like you to use ze.
News Flash – even babies who are grown in a test tube require DNA from a male and a female – GET OVER IT!
Yesterday I went to the city for an appointment. I am 5 foot nothing and wear moccasins. A young man, I would guess to be in his early 20’s, stopped directly in front of me, turned around and got about 2 inches from my face and said “Black lives matter”. I said “okay”, slipped my hand into my purse, and tried to get around him.
He was trying to stop me and said “What you mean okay?”
“It means that I heard you and acknowledged what you said.”
“You think you can just get around me.”
“I am certainly trying. I have an appointment to get to.”
At that point another young man, about the same age stepped in and helped me get around and into the office. I thanked him.
Lives matter. Begin at home. If you believe that black lives matter, begin at home and black people stop ruining the lives of black people. If you believe that all lives matter, begin at home and stop ruining the lives of everyone.
American politics has turned into an uncontrolled elementary school play ground. I don’t know where the playground teacher is, but it time to come out and “clean house”. Hillary Clinton is not a felon. Let the justice system figure out what happened. It is not your job to be the judge and jury. Republicans let it run its course. Donald Trump, your real hair is the least of our problems. Hillary, calling Republicans terrorists is irresponsible, use another word.
