Once a member encouraged me to write a blog, actually it's long time I don't post any but I felt lazy or simply didn't know what to write about. 'Just look around you' she told me, so I'll describe the social environment I feel sometimes with a sort of funny story. You can judge it after reading...
"...This morning I woke up, opened my bedroom window and saw everything was covered by a thick layer of snow, how beautiful...!! I was happily watching the view and couldn't help going out and make a snowman, so I made it but then a feminist walking on the sidewalk saw my snowman and asked me why I didn't make a snow-woman too, so I made the snow woman also but then the homosexual neighbors told me that's discriminatory, I should have made two snowmen with same gender not to offend this collective. Just minutes later the vegans of the neighborhood complained about the carrot-nose of the snowmen stating that carrots are food to eat not for playing or decorating figures. When I got into my house again someone reported me saying I'm a racist because the snowman is white and the snow-woman should wear covering her head. Some later the lawyer of the feminist knocked my door requiring to take the brush out of the snow-woman because it categorise women into a domestic role. It was not all since later on an ecologist organisation phoned accusing me of polluting the snow and police pointing me for raising problems in bad weather conditions.
Tired of the f...* horrible day I decided to chill on my sofa and watching T.V. when I realised I appeared on news program as a suspected sexist, troublemaker, racist, chauvinist, terrorist with homophobic sense..."
Obviously this is an exaggerated but graphic story of a raising susceptibility in the society supported by an insatiable media I see around me sometimes getting to the point of the absurd and ridiculous, not to hurt someone's sensibilities. Of course this can not be generalised in everywhere, every country or any society. Just hope no one misunderstand me or the story :)
