For a decade I blogged almost every day about anything in the news that caught my eye and attention. I had an opinion on everything. I still do, only all those years of blogging made me realize swapping opinions (and in some cases insults) with others accomplished exactly nothing. Usually it just riled me up more, and who needs that? I realized that 99% of people are not interested in listening to an argument in order to determine if it is valid. They just wanted to yell back at me. So, no one was being changed by my babbling. I’ll be honest and say I rarely changed my opinion about a subject too.
I still have opinions, about the Ferguson Riots, about the Ukraine, Russia, Middle East as well as numerous political and social issues. But seriously, who really wants to hear them and for what worthwhile purpose? Just a waste of time.
Maybe blogging is dead as people have been reporting for many years. Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and other social media creations have taken over.
Or maybe it is me. Maybe I just don’t care anymore? I have realized that America as I envisioned it my entire life is dead, buried and gone. Whatever country I am living in now is the Post America version. The constitution is out of style and people can’t figure out their own genders. Like in this story. Mills College in Oakland is and has been an all female College since the 1800’s. However, they have changed their policy so that the following people could apply for admissions:
– Applicants “not assigned to the female sex at birth” but who self-identify as women are welcome.
– Applicants “who do not fit into the gender binary” – being neither male nor female – are eligible if they were “assigned to the female sex at birth.”
So, this historical women’s college will let men in so long as they think they are women. Or, women who are so confused that they cannot figure out what sex they are.
The VP for enrollment and admissions actually had the nerve to state, “The purpose of the policy is that we didn’t want students to feel excluded in the application process,”
Unless you are a male who thinks you are a male of course. Those bastards can’t apply!
When the world is this crazy, why waste any time or energy blogging about it?
