Did someone say, "Stir the pot?"
Oh, me? Sure thing, I'd fucking love to. Hand me the spoon.
I got a little bit of flak for my last post in regards to religious stereotypes. Excuse me while I address that;
I don't ever write something with the intention of being offensive and hurtful. I'm not a mean person, I don't bash the less fortunate, or call people ugly cause it makes me feel better, I don't lie, or cheat. I don't wish ill upon enemies, if I even have any and I don't get off on being malicious.
I write based on MY opinion, after all, this; Is MY blog. And yes, Denmark sounds lovely- but the sound of my speech flowing freely sounds astronomical.
And if you don't like it, don't read it.
If we were always worried about offending someone, bloggers wouldn't exist. I can think of a significant amount of people who would prefer to not hear about our; "sexcapades", drunken blabber, Boss bashing, ranting, rag ranting, kid gushing, puppy gushing, boyfriend gushing, and so. on.
HOWEVER, we continue to write about it because there are ENOUGH people that actually do care to know when your Maltese gets his first photo taken, or which presidential candidate you feel best fits the job. You know what, there's also a reason more than one ice cream flavor exists....
Cause fuck, not everyone enjoys vanilla.
Lets see....what else wouldn't exist if we weren't willing to speak up and be a bit scandalicious;
Music is a good place to start. Remember this guy? The one who so devilishly thrust his pelvis is our mothers/grandmothers faces?
Wouldn't erase his history if given the chance.
How about this woman...You know, threatening to "Take over the world" after her first television performance. She's made videos that have been banned and grinded in leotards all over the world. Now, if you're going to tell me you'd prefer, "Like a Virgin" or "Open your heart" didn't exist. I'll call you a liar.
Oh, and "the south" and is pretty pissed at these "chicks"
The Beatles- People were up in arms, burning and BOYCOTTING when they compared themselves to be "More popular than God" Something tells me rosary gripping folks were a little bit more than "angry" at that statement. Even if it were true among their listeners.
Think this show went over BIG in Utah? Probably not.
How about this guy-
And these guys.
Wait, you know what. Lets just forget pop culture; pop culture wouldn't be a culture if we were worried about being offensive. You think TMZ would be so popular? I think not. AND I know so many righteous people lick up every bit of dirt that they so proudly post on their website and now TV SHOW.
Pretty bold move.....don't rock that boat too much...
....Manet, wasn't too concerned about shaky boats, for sake of good art.
And while some may be riding atop their high horses- who doesn't love The Girls Next Door? I won't even ask what MAN doesn't enjoy Playboy.
Now tell Hugh in 1953 to "refrain" from putting a voluptuous Marilyn Monroe on his first cover of Playboy ( a cover that is now an enterprise) in order to not "upset the people" and tell me what he would say?
