My Generation

I was just thinking over the last couple of days, I don’t think that many from my generation 40 and below, have ever really had to protest before. I think of the protests that we’ve had over the years, I wonder if part of the reason why they don’t seem so effective is because we just don’t know how to.

Then again, I also think we live in a different state of the world. The last “great” protest I’m thinking of, are those against the Vietnam War, but then again, a lot of them protested against the soldiers, just doing their jobs and not necessarily the war themselves.

Before that was maybe Martin Luther King Jr and that Civil Rights March. Which is probably the most “famous” of them all. However, I am sure for different people, there are “great” protests that I am not even aware of.

I can’t help but think, we protest these days, because stupid people and “deaf” politicians, just are not listening to the Science, the Health or Medical professionals. We’re not protesting, because of the Government being wrong. We protest because they wont listen. Protests are done to make people feel uncomfortable, which some do. At the vigil for Sarah Everard, there were quiet a few signs that said “TERFs’ not welcomed here”. The TERFs were not happy, lol.

There must be a in-between that my generation is just missing out on?

Like, if the stupid politicians, and the bigots have social media to echo themselves. They’re not going to listen to a protest. Even though most, if not all, the time. The “lefties” and the “liberal bleeding hearts” always out-number the bigots.

We are the generation that need to come up with a new way to protest. Show the numbers, march, but show them on social media too. Start “hitting” those bigots mid way through their echo. Sometimes protesting on social media does actually work. As an example, a lot of businesses these days will listen to the people saying they wont buy from their business, as their advertisements come up on, say, Fox News. There a few twitter accounts, dedicated to letting the general public know which advertisers are advertising where.

I have no idea where you’d start with that though!lol

Put all the warnings you want!

Put all the trigger warnings, you want. Hug all the teddy bears you want.

Trump, Johnson, all these old anti-maskers, whine about putting masks on. Say you’re not a man if you wear one.

I don’t know about you, but this whole “manly man” portrayal, who are the LEAST manly man I have ever seen. I’m over it. I don’t want another generation of alcoholic, slapping their children and wives about, where the male suicide rate is MUCH higher than women, “manly men”.

The world cannot survive another generation of Trumps, Johnsons and “manly men”.

Women know and good men know now. When you REALLY know something, you can’t go backwards.

Gender Differences in Suicide Rate – Wikipedia … As of 2015, almost two-thirds of worldwide suicides (representing about 1.5% of all deaths) are committed by men.

Why are men more susceptible to alcoholism? It may be in their dopamine – Sciencedaily

Sure, but yeah, how dare we recognise this now and instead of just continuing with generations of alcoholism, mental health issues, and violence. Let’s just try something else now. Shall We.

So hug those teddies! Put those trigger warnings on! And make a safe space, all for you!

And never forget that it mostly WHITE and MIDDLE AGED persons, complaining about wearing masks! Whose the weak generation again? And if the young people are, who raised them again? Clue, the same people throwing and destroying store property, because they don’t wanna wear a mask to help others. But you know, they’re so … manly …

Funny Update:

About three days after I first started to write this. There was an ad/commercial on. Just before midnight, that was saying for men TOO cry, TOO speak. Coincidence?
