Well, I had an interesting conversation with Randy the other day as part of my involvement with the P2S course I’m currently working through.
Just be yourself he says. I had a long hard think about that and thought, my posts in this blog are going to be like marmite. People are going to either love it or hate it. I’m also thinking you ‘avin a giraffe mate. People are probably not going to understand the terminology (Please post in the comments if you’re from outside of the UK and know what “avin a giraffe” means, I would love to know).
It actually fits in quite well with another quote I heard years ago and one which I think is very true.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter
That being said, there are so many overly sensitive people about these days 😉 Still, I think being called sexist is far nicer than a male chauvinist pig. Yes, I did have a mug with that on. I grew up decades ago and back then what was acceptable, isn’t acceptable now. But why is it not acceptable that someone who grew up with a different opinion is expected to change, but the so-called modern thinkers can’t be expected to accept that some older people just have opinions which don’t fit in with what’s considered acceptable in modern times. Just re-read that last bit again and think I confused myself a bit. Hope you got the gist of it.
Doesn’t automatically make them bad people, they just grew up differently. They express an honest opinion and are ostracised for expressing that opinion. Or worse, plod turns up and feels your collar. Would you adam and eve it. 😯 (Oops I did it again)
Well, that’s about it for this post. Hope I haven’t sent you to google too many times. (Different tab or window of course)
