Q&A: Politically Incorrect

The one hundred-twelfth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “When do you find yourself most politically incorrect?”

Hahaha, wow, this question. When do I find myself most politically incorrect? All the time. Given the standards for what is considered to be politically correct these days, I’m pretty sure I’m politically incorrect 99.9% of the time. Honestly, I think our society has gone way too far in terms of political correctness; to the point that just being yourself is no longer “PC”, so you have to monitor your every action and every word that passes your lips, lest it offend someone in some weird, backwards way. It amazes me what people find offensive these days. I look at Facebook, and all I see is people complaining about what other people are thinking, doing or saying, and it is genuinely fascinating (and, at the same time, incredibly frustrating) to see how people these days can twist even the nicest, most well-intended statement or action into something horribly offensive. It makes me afraid to talk to anyone I meet in public, because I can’t know, when meeting them, how ‘sensitive’ they’ll be. Everything sets people off these days, and I find it overwhelmingly draining.

But when do I find myself most politically incorrect? Well, I guess that would be when talking to or about (or, as it is most of the time, just thinking about) feminists. There is very little in feminism that I agree with, despite being female myself, so I have a very hard time maintaining my socially acceptable status when feminist issues are being discussed. Now, I say that very broadly, because I have absolutely no interest in going into the details of this and getting blasted for it at the moment, so there are, of course, parts of feminism that I find to be perfectly reasonable, and I’m not saying feminists are bad, because some of them are perfectly fine people…it’s just that most of what they preach really isn’t reasonable or okay, to me. Most of it is, to be honest, infuriating to me…as is the way society is run in many other ways, these days.

I am really just not meant to exist in the current time period, I don’t think. It would be nice if I existed at a time when my feelings were more PC…and/or the definition of what is PC was more reasonable.

Q&A: Anger vs. Pride

The one hundred-fifth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What is the one thing about your country that makes you angriest? And proudest?”

At the moment, the thing that makes me angriest about my country is its leadership. Our current leader and his party have completely destroyed most of what was so great about this country, and that is simultaneously depressing and infuriating. We were, and could have continued to be, such a great nation, but now we’re a disgrace, and that sickens me. So yeah, I’m not going to go into any more detail on that right now, but that’s what makes me angriest.

Seems to be how Harper feels about us.

As for what makes me proudest, I’m honestly not sure anymore. I used to be so incredibly proud of this country, and sometimes still feel that pride well up inside of me, but when it does, I find it harder and harder to really identify why I’m feeling proud. I guess maybe it’s the people, since for the most part, Canada is still full of good people…but it used to be so much more, and that’s just sad. At least it’s still a beautiful country, and we still try to be friendly, despite the way our leader would have us presented to the world now…
