Societal Rants ((And yes Oh Sweet Oz I’m back))

So I have been thinking… About all those schoolgirl series ((yes the plural of series is, well… series)) Enid Blyton writes… isn’t it fairly deep because isn’t it how society is? All the prejudice, the judgement, the silent bullying – yeah, that’s our world. If I were there, this is what I would do… I may get expelled for it but who cares… I’ve already gotten into detention twice… so moving on… this is what I would do about 1. The racial prejudice, for if Americans and French are frequently portrayed as jerks, what more people of Asian or African descent?: I would paint the walls in various colours and blindfold myself with a multi-coloured scarf, with a sign on my back saying COLOUR IS BEAUTIFUL. Oh, and like, pin every single flag on myself. ((whispers: Hetalia has taught me a lot – that everyone is flawed, yet beautiful, regardless of country. All along I had always acknowledged only either the flawed or beautiful part, but now… I see both and it’s marvellous.)) 2. The bullying of plus-sized girls: I am so wearing a leotard the whole week. Or more until I freeze to death. Nobody should be made to feel ashamed of their bodies. 3. The underestimating of fun-sized people: being around five feet myself, I’m just taping a sign to my back: LIFE’S TOO SHORT, I’M NOT* and write 5″0 on the front of my shirt. I would even paste a measuring tape from my head down if I weren’t such an idiot to keep tripping over things. Heck, Napoleon conquered and ruled more than many tall people ever could, thanks. Okay, so I’ve heard he wasn’t that short but around 5″6, 5″7, I think? Which still isn’t very tall for a guy still?? Or so I think?? But my history teacher kind of told us that Hitler was short, and whilst I have no idea, I trust him ((my teacher not Hitler)) so yeah. Yay. 4. If there were any cases of LGBT there, which there always would be, everywhere, seriously, there would be so, so much hate. I am going to duct tape my lips and carry a rainbow flag. And blindfold myself with the earlier mentioned rainbow scarf. Honestly I neither support or scorn this, I am neutral, but knowing how being an outcast feels, nobody should be despised because of their orientation. Nobody deserves to be despised, for the matter. It doesn’t matter if they’re straight or not – if you’re straight and hate and spurn and bully, then I’m telling you, you have no love as compared to someone who isn’t straight but fights for good causes, stands up for the oppressed, etcetera. 5. Gender stereotypes: Does it really matter what gender we are? Both males and females can accomplish the same things. The only thing that females can’t do that males can is use the gents, and the only thing guys can’t do that females can is use the ladies. Does it really matter what gender we are? Everyone’s human – flawed, limited, but ultimately beautiful. Unless you are a jerk like Enid Blyton. Still, there’s no way one is all good or all bad… I’d probably crossdress if that were the case. And blindfold myself with a lavender, white and green scarf. I mean, really. Stereotypes have ruined lives for forever, and is there a REAL distinguishing factor between males and females in terms of values and flaws? Really people, I don’t get it. I’m totally for this one because reasons but I’m not going to entertain any speculations, though of course, everyone has rights, so you cam speculate if you all like. But nope, not entertaining any of that. And for the last time, yes, I am straight.

Discrimination, stereotypes, prejudice and inequality. I don’t get ANY of it and I don’t see how people do. *Ties blindfold*.

Well, I’ve got spare blindfolds here. Who’d be strong and stand with me? Because everyone can blindfold themselves – metaphorically, if not literally. I actually wouldn’t mind if you do it literally and that’d be really cool but please promise me you wouldn’t crash into something because I understand how easy crashing into things is already WITHOUT literal blindfolds, but to those of us who aren’t talented in that area of not crashing into things, let’s put on our metaphorical blindfolds so that the world can see.
