Before I get started I just want to say I know I’ve contradicted myself, but I believe there is a difference between self expression, and being a total asshole. And I don’t mean to insult/offend anyone but I would love if someone gave me some feedback on this post, or if anyone even reads all of it that would be great. And no, I’m not perfect either so I can’t really judge the people being total assholes mentioned below, but hey, I’ve got an opinion that I’m trying to express in a way that doesn’t hurt others.
Is there anyone else out there that feels everyone should just mind their own business. Okay, that’s a bad question hey because I know a lot of people feel that way and I feel that way, but I am always really curious about what everyone is doing and what’s the latest gossip and such, so I’m kinda contradicting myself. I saw earlier on facebook a bunch of people arguing about a photo some one posted (might have been Nash Grier himself) of him and someone who I assume is his dad above a photo of two cartoon cows and I think they were trying to compare how blue Nash and this other man’s eyes were in contrast to the cows and blah blah. For anyone who doesn’t know, I believe he makes youtube videos and vines and has attracted a lot of attention from people for sexism and Homophobic jokes/statements. No I don’t have proof of this or record, I’m not writing this so people can target certain things I’ve said and make a big deal of it. But anyways, that’s not the point of this post. I was reading through the comments because I there were some that caught my attention and to sum it up: EVERYONE in this world would rather criticise the faults of another person than just ignore it and ignore the chance of being right and the chance of voicing their opinion. Like these comments, just wow, they were so frustrating to read because there was such a range of different people who, might I add, didn’t even know each other. And sure, I get that people can have arguments and disagreements and opinions and all that jazz, but its being taken so far in society that its changing the way people think, behave and treat each other. So for example, in this post about Nash Grier, there were people commenting that supposedly didn’t like him, but were sticking up for him anyways, there were people that were just don’t right insulting him, people that were saying the stuff he has said was in the past, then people that said everyone else should learn to understand jokes and people that were talking about freedom of speech and other people who said that freedom of speech had nothing to do with the matter because freedom of speech was based so ‘the people’ could have a voice and governments couldn’t just control everything and etc. I don’t know Nash Grier personally, if anyone here likes him, that is cool. If anyone here doesn’t like him and they have a reason not to like him, then cool for you. That’s your problem, not his, and not mine. I get that all these people commenting have rights on how they feel about this person, and in fact anyone or anything. But it pisses me off so much that people feel the need to insult others about something they don’t even know about. There are people saying things they don’t even know, like everything was a joke, and others saying that he has changed and he feels sorry for everything, and here’s my favourite- there are people saying, he only apologized about a certain video as not to ruin his reputation. If this person correct? Who knows. I don’t, and the person who wrote this certainly doesn’t if he doesn’t know Nash himself. There is a high chance that Nash Grier doesn’t want to ruin his reputation but as I write this the guy is 16 years old. Who hasn’t said something stupid, or something they later regret? He might not be sorry for things he has done, or he might be. But how does require people that don’t even like him, or his videos, to insult him and others online just for the sake of proving a point? Everyone has opinions, they don’t all need to be shared, and if they are they don’t need to be shared harshly. And this post isn’t just on Nash Grier. But it does mainly focus on famous people in a way I guess because they are in the public eye all the time, they put themselves out there and they can behave the way they want. Like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber for more examples.
I am not saying I am fans of these people or that I am NOT fans of them. But they are they own people, why should we say they shouldn’t dress a certain way or behave a certain way or be a certain way. How can any of us say that before we are perfect ourselves?
Sometimes when I hear people talking or arguing I just want to join and say what I think and feel but I can’t find the words to say it and I get too impatient to try getting someone else to see the world the way I see it and 99% of the time I just end up crying
