Camp NaNoWriMo, Can We Talk?

You Need to Calm Down

I like Taylor Swift’s music. Have you seen her latest video?

So much to talk about. Ready?

First of all, it’s so catchy. That’s one of the biggest reasons I like Taylor’s music – it’s just fun and catchy.

This video is fun, if not a bit insulting but HEY. it’s okay, I’m not upset and it’s certainly not going to ruin my day but damn girl, depicting people who don’t agree with homosexuality as idiots is a bit harsh, don’t ‘cha think?

I mean, to each his own, I guess. I know there ARE people who look like that, missing teeth, rat hair, holes in clothes, poor education, basically meth heads.┬áBut to imply that those are the kinds of people who disagree with your opinions is just … stupid.

People are ignorant. I won’t dispute that. But ignorance is present in coastal states too, not just the Midwest bible thumpers.

I understand where Tayor is going with this video and this song. And she’s right, there are WAY too many people who are offended and outraged over well, everything. People need to calm down.

You don’t agree with homosexuality? Okay. Life goes on.

You don’t agree with abortion? Okay. Life goes on.

You don’t agree with one particular politic party? Okay. Life goes on.

To sum up? People are not ignorant, evil or crazy if they disagree with you.

It’s called LIFE.

You need to calm down.

Taylor says people who are against homosexuality need to calm down – I say – same sweetie.

People who think straight people are devil incarnate also need to calm down.

People who have differing opinions have just as much right as you do, it’s called freedom of speech. Do you have to stand there and listen to those opinions? Nope. You can disregard and walk away. But those that try to bully and threaten their way to “being right” need to swallow a dose of reality. It’s not all about you and your life choices, hunty.

Everyone, take a chill pill AND CALM DOWN.

And one last thought – why is it okay to have one whole month dedicated to gay people but if we try and plan one whole month to celebrate straight people, the world goes apoplectic?

So gay people have chosen to dedicate one month to celebrate being gay? WHO CARES? You do you, boo. But DO NOT get upset when another section of our population would like to do the same for their life choice. You can’t have it your way and only your way, people.

You need to calm down.

This song goes both ways, this song goes ALL ways. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

People NEED to get over themselves. Truly.

And I’m going to be straight up honest with ya’ll – people honest to God DO NOT CARE ABOUT HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIVES.

They really don’t.

Everyone, CALM DOWN.
