I’m An Asshole
So last night I posed the question on Twitter, “Am I an asshole?”
The answers were pretty heavy in favor of “yes.”
Which got me thinking.. What is an asshole really? (In its NON-vulgar sense, perverts). I also asked the question why those same people followed me on Twitter, and most of the responses that came back was because it was either funny, or just me being honest. So apparently, being honest in today’s society makes you an asshole. And when I started thinking about that notion, it really is true.
You must be so politically correct these days that George Carlin has probably written 3 books of material from heaven. God rest his hilarious soul. And if you step out of the boundaries of PC, you are an asshole. No matter how truthful and honest you are, doesn’t matter.
We are all taught as children, tell the truth and be honest. I know there is a line between honesty and BRUTAL honesty. But when it’s OBJECTIVE honesty, more people need to open their ears and listen.
It’s important. If we really want to see change, I mean REALLY want to see change, people need to step up and stop being afraid of being outspoken to GET that change.
