Be Kind to One Another

I saw the most disgusting video circulating online.  It showcases women who hit men being punched back by men they hit.  No, I will not be linking.  I would rather chew my arm off than provide links to such repulsive material.  Basically, the video's statement is hiding behind the argument that if feminism is to exist, then, I don't know, some bullshit equality argument.

I think it's plain awful.  No one should hit anyone, man, woman, martian.  The biggest problem I have is about the idea of defending any type of physical altercation.  There are times when defense is necessary of one's self, yes, but damn.  An actual "movement" saying that if women wish to be treated the same and request standard rights given to those with male anatomy, then "take a hit like a man".  What. the. f***.

This all got me thinking:

Where/when in the world did we get so backwards in being kind?  Just be nice dammit; show love, provide laughter, and don't be a douchebag.  Work hard, look out for your fellow people, and don't blatantly insult people.

Now on the reverse, political correctness has everyone completely running in circles.  Cruelty, racism, and belligerence are rampant, yes.  People are doing terrible, awful things to one another and to entire groups of beings.  I don't know how to fix it and I don't have a perfect remedy because if I did I would shout it from the highest rooftop ever in attempt to stop the madness.

But what I do think:
-It's important to remember what other people think of you is none of your business
-Again, be kind, for everyone we meet is fighting some kind of battle

Life is meant to be enjoyed and I know oppression exists that prohibits this in many ways.  But what if simple changes in how we respond, how we react, how we treat one another, could be a recipe for happier existences?

When things get complicated, simplicity helps center things, and you know what, it is worth the attempt.  Something has to be done to alleviate the pain and suffering in the world and I'm all for doing what I know to help with that effort.  It might just be crazy enough to work.

Let's meet again,
M

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
