An author who has been a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award has asked that people stop wearing Red Hats, even Sports Teams Hats if they are red.

"You're Making Everyone Scared"

She says its

Not worth making disenfranchised people feel unsafe.


Also:


For the love of God: The clever folks wearing "Make America Read Again" or whatever caps -- NO. You're making everyone scared. Don't do it.


And in case you thought she meant you she further clarified:


Please note that I was specifically addressing “normal people.” The ones who don’t want to freak people out at a distance. The ones who enjoy it should absolutely continue letting us know who they are.


This is why I think "requesting" that people not open carry because it might scare others is just the tip of the iceberg with these people.
Where does it end with pacifying everyone for their unique fears.

Dear Author I will never read,
You are making me scared, so please stop asking people to stop.
Scared I am going to offend someone. Scared I am going to lose my right to free speech.

Actually, not really. You keep doing you, so I know who YOU are.
Off to by any type of red hat.

Wait just a dang minute.....
Is the red hat society included in this stupidity?

When we are all disarmed, wearing identical gray jumpsuits embroidered with the name of the current party in power.

Don't forget your personal pronouns under the name.

I think adding a Betsy Ross Flag and Gadsden Flag to that ensemble would really take that to the next fear factor.

Heads might explode out of fear.

I saw that story earlier this morning and I laughed for about 20 minutes afterward.
Complete lunatic.

Seriously f these idiots. So sick of reading about people offended by their own shadow. Do us all a favor and go find a tall bridge.

Unfortunately, the madness just seems to be getting worse. All we can do is ignore everything and try to enjoy life as we know it. I'm going to have a glass of scotch now! It's Friday.
