You're not allowed to say that, you monster. It's now called 'not optimal female face'.
Can ATS come up with some other names for brown bag? The more ludicrous the better. I want to send an e-mail to Monson and see if he'll read it on
get it right, it is 'beautifully impaired' ... because it almost sounds positive.
I thought brown bag was when you brought your own lunch to primary school; and shouldn't every 'resident' also be a 'citizen'?
I'd be more offended of the officer just said, 'hey you', than 'Excuse me, fine citizen, may I take a moment of your time?' ... who am I
kidding; what public servant treats the people they serve like that any longer?
These PC and movement types are extremists and taken over all the movements and devalued them. Feminism was a real and just cause; now misandrists
have infiltrated them and destroyed what as a truly noble intention. The same has happened to MLK Jr's movement; I'm sure he'd be sick with how
caricatures like we see come out at the slightest discretion pounce on things that are mostly harmless; the same things when done by their own ilk in
the same spirit is downplayed as just humor or freedom of expression.
I think in the end, all this extremism for being PC and the equality groups pushing for superiority is going to be part of the help we need to break
the systems down. Human nature can tolerate a lot, until it no longer can tolerate any of it. They push continuously and too far, and one day it
will all crash; and I believe only good will come of it after it all settles back down. True equality, thicker skins, respect for the individual and
less hypersensitivity ready to attack every word out of context.
I'd rather see a world of Archie Bunkers (of every race and sex), than a bunch of scared to speak and act hypocrites running around worried if
they'll hurt someone's feeling if they they call a basketball court 'blacktop' (asphalt used as the court surface) ... or worried if their own
feelings should be hurt because of anything anyone else says (hint: you shouldn't; have at least some ego to realize it matters what you think of
yourself and how you treat others; not what strangers say indirectly or directly to you).
If people don't stop this crap; they will worry themselves to death, and be mad at everyone, everything ... including themselves.
Coexistence doesn't mean totalitarian censorship or speaking and acting in absolute neutrality and perfection. It means accepting everyone,
including their faults; and minding your own damn business most of the time. Working together for the greater good of the community while leaving
people be on their own property and in their own private conversations. Peace comes from within; not by everyone being passive and silent.
Someone should start a 'Citizens' Brown Bag Initiative' there. It's purpose would be for people to bring healthy meals prepared at home to work.
Benefits of the program would be a healthier populace, less traffic/congestion traveling for lunch breaks, and use of reusable containers and
recyclable materials to transport the food to work (as opposed to the styrofoam disposable containers from delivery services and other disposables
like the thin metal containers, soda cans/bottles, etc).
I guess I just like to stir the pot in a non-aggressive, healthy way
