This is a response to a mentality that has to be met with derision. When someone's first instinct upon encountering ideas that make them in any way uncomfortable is to think of how that idea might be crushed or banned, they are pathetic in a way that goes beyond comedy. Appeals to authority, the demand for authority over others to control their expression, only goes to shitty places and the people who want to bring it on only become weaker as a result.

Jesus was not white or black.

Considering that Jesus was born on this Earth in the middle east, and during the day and time of 2,000 years ago, he was born of the somewhat darker skin Semitic people.

This resonates with me. On one hand I can take a lot of shit. On the other, I try to keep a balance of calm between everyone I know, not try to let fighting break out and please everyone cause I don't like conflict. It's very hard to deal with.

Nah. Some thoughts, beliefs and philosophies need and deserve to die horrible flaming deaths. You let malinformation survive and breed, and it digs in deep until one of the riches and most developed nations in the world lags behind the rest of the world in terms of... well, everything. The only thing we seem to be number 1 in these days are in prison sentencing and military expenditures.

Now you have a so-called "leader" who thinks clean coal is coal miners literally hand-scrubbing the CO2 emissions off of the coal, and that humans have a finite and preset amount of energy that makes them die when they run out of it.

The mechanism for deciding what should go and/or stay is through open, honest public discourse. One can only have that when those engaging in discussion are responsible, forthright individuals with integrity and dignity. That's why, first and foremost, people have to believe not only in being honest but that they are responsible for themselves. Then we can have a chat.

The best way to get people to understand that bad ideas are bad is to allow those bad ideas be publically spoken out loud by bad people so that people who aren't bad realize that the ideas are bad.

Immediately condemning and silencing opposing schools of thought do not kill ideas...They simply make them taboo and turn the people who espouse them into martyrs.

The only way to successfully "kill" a bad idea is to expose it to public discourse. Let a Nazi talk about Nazi things to regular people and eventually they are going to realize "Holy shit, this guy is a fucking Nazi, he's not worth listening to." It's the same reason Bill Nye debated Ken Ham

I disagree. Nazism doesn't present itself as the coming of the fourth reich.
Rather, it disguises itself.

Nazis won't say, "Let's put all the brown people into camps because white people are superior".

They will say, "I don't think white people are better than brown people at all. I just think it's a shame that good, hardworking folks such as yourself can't find a decent job. If [insert scapegoat] weren't coming in and taking all the jobs and money, you'd be able to have a better life for you and your kids."

It's terrible idea to let con-men, swindlers, and snake oil salesmen have a platform for their bullshit, because it's designed to trick dumb people (or smart people who are down on their luck and want to believe all their problems are caused by the undesirables in society).

For example, Fox News is garbage for idiots with no critical thinking skills. It's also one of the most want news (actually it's classified as infotainment) in the country.

After all, Trump is president. A man who embodies NOTHING about the presidency other than his ability to trick rubes with bullshit promises.
You'd think someone would stand up and defeat his constant lies and ridiculously impossible campaign promises (such as Mexico paying for a wall), in the market place of free ideas, but it never happened.

People are just that stupid as long as they're being pandered to.
See this comment section for example.

You're giving neo-Nazi's faaaaaaar too much credit.  They're typically open about their bigotry and hate.  The subtler ones might couch it as a "they took yer jerbs!" argument, but you're also subtlety implying that valid criticisms against illegal immigration are racist... so you either have an agenda or you're being unwittingly dishonest.

Also Trump didn't so much win the election as Hillary lost it.  She defamed half the country, pandered to everyone but white males, called millions of Americans "deplorable" because they didn't agree with her, rambled off isms and ists instead of coherent arguments, thought she had all this good will from Obama that didn't exist, colluded with the media to screw Sanders, had all sorts of horrible details leak out about her which she never even tried to rebut and just generally thought it was "her turn" to win.  If the Democrats would stop fixating on "diversity" which celebrates DIVISION and instead focus on UNITY, they would do much better.

You Trumpets still haven't figured it out.

Hillary didn't lose. WE lost. The entire country lost.
The whole world now knows that we can't be trusted ever again.
Who are we going to elect next? Kid Rock? Ted Nugent? The Annoying Orange?
Who cares as long as they show up in MY home state to give a speech and give some lip service about how much they "love good hard working folks" like me (then they stab you in the back as usual).

Everyone with "hurt feelings" cut their noses off to spite their faces.
Now we have a dementia-ridden old Fox News fan sitting in the white house pocketing our tax dollars while he golfs every weekend and congress works on tax breaks for the rich and an early death for the sick and the poor.
Let me know when he brings your tax bill down, brings back the jobs, and rebuilds the roads.
Oh wait, none of that is on the game plan unless you're in the top 0.01% of earnings, but hey, at least he's sticking it to the (((globalist elites))) (such as his own son in law).

Are Repubs mad at this? No... They are mad at trannies, gays, and sissies who are bold enough to ask for human dignity.

The sad part is, once Trump is gone, all the loyal Repubs will look at the mess and still find a way to blame Democrats for it (then vote for another good old boy who looks and talks like them).

Kids will read about you rubes in their history books and wonder how anyone could have been retarded enough to support this dumpster fire of an administration.

Just want to make sure I'm following this.

YOU have the right to say what you want and express yourself however your want, right?
Your words are just words, ideas that can't harm anyone, and there's no harm in expressing your opinions.

But then, when OTHERS use their words to express themselves in staunch disagreement with your position, then THEIR words become bees that sting you.

So, your words are harmless and should be allowed.
Their words are bees and they sting you with them.

How about realizing that the world doesn't have a right to protect YOUR feelings.
If the world thinks your an ignorant racist (as an example) , then they have every right to call you out on it, just the same as you had the right to say it in the first place.

Most of the anti-SJW complaints I hear boil down to, "I should be able to say whatever I want, and people shouldn't be allowed to dog-pile on me and call me a piece of shit for what I think."

Sorry, but that's not how it works snowflakes.

I think he might be referring to radical left wing groups like AntiFa who believe that speech is "violence" and therefore they can attack people with physical violence in "self defense", which is, ironically, fascist behavior.  No one is silencing the Left, in fact, they have a monopoly when it comes to the mainstream media.
Bondagepup
2 years, 5 months ago
None of that is clear in this comic.
We're left reading between the lines here (like one might do with one of Trump's speeches).

If the point of the comic was to say that violence isn't the way to solve disagreements, then there must be a few more lines that got cutoff from the bottom of the picture.

I'll recognize that there is room for interpretation in this comic (so my interpretation of the meaning is not fact), but that's part of the problem.
Taken at face value, the comic just tells "everyone" who is offended to shut up and get over it so that's what I was responding to in my comments.
Athendae
2 years, 5 months ago
I believe what he's referring to is the fact that the far left is more likely to view words and opinions as actual, literal violence and will respond with actual, literal violence.

The violence that has been committed in these priests is deplorable, but technically people like Antifa did their the first real-world punch with actual fists. Everything that came after was retaliation and escalation and a justification for the far-right to begin expressing literal violence.
TwitchChameleon
2 years, 5 months ago
Trying to explain to communists that ideas/opinions that lead to violence historically isn't the same thing as actual violence is like trying to swim up a waterfall.  Especially when dealing with people they perceive to be as fascists (which, to a communist, is basically everyone who isn't one of them).  We are living in a miniature version of the climate in Weimar Germany right before the Nazi's kicked the shit out of the communists and rose to power.  Fortunately for us neither the few fascists or communists have any real power and zero political ground (well, Bernie Sanders is a thing...).  Also Antifa is now classified as a domestic terrorist group by the FBI and DHS.  :D

lol "like one of trump's speeches" yeah, you're not massively biased or anything.  The very obvious point of this humorous little image is that people getting "triggered" by ANYTHING in life/the world is solely THEIR PROBLEM and THEY have to get over it and take responsibility for THEIR actions.  You can't control what others do.  You can't even control what happens to you.  What you CAN control is how YOU REACT TO IT.  Sage advice from a therapist fyi.  You are just obviously in favor of authoritarianism, censorship and "it's okay for me, but not for thee" - that's the kind of immaturity you're peddling, which is the same kind of immaturity groups like Antifa exhibit, thinking they can do as they please because of some imagined moral superiority to the point when they exhibit the EXACT SAME BEHAVIORS they claim they are fighting against.  Also I noticed your comment about "toddler fuckers" or something like that... you have a cub for your avatar, so, are you criticizing yourself?  I'm on this site as a back up if FA goes under, as I am on others - what exactly is YOUR motivation?

That was a rambling mess, total unhinged gibberish.

If you get this triggered when someone bashed Trump then you're really far gone.
Anyone with a modicum of intelligence can see through that charlatan.
You don't have any credibility as a "free thinker". You're a useful idiot. The Koch brothers thank you (by gutting healthcare).

Trump and the rest of the oligarchy are the ones you should be rallying against.
Instead, I find all the "free thinkers" more concerned about trans/gender-fluid kids on Tumblr.
Why is that?

I don't want to take away anyone right to trigger snowflakes on the internet.
I never said anything of the sort.
I just saw a bunch of self-congratulatory failures patting themselves on the back for being so very "thick-skinned" and "rational", so I decided to stop in and "poke the bear" so to speak.

As usual, the bear got really triggered and started whining more and more about how the terrible SJW wants to take away its right to roar and be a fierce predator.
Sorry Mr. Bear, but no one is actually oppressing you, it just seems that way because all you really want is a nice dank safe space where you can let your brain hibernate.

Bondagepup
2 years, 5 months ago
The internet is like any other public place. Say something in front of someone who doesn't want to hear it and they will likely let you know.

If you were sitting in a crowded restaurant and started loudly talking about how "The problems of the black man have less to do with white oppression, and more to do with problems in their own community such as absent fathers and drug addiction" then you should be ready for a heated discussion.

There are many people in that restaurant, some are black themselves, and not surprisingly have a different perspective on the subject.
They may find your comments to be ignorant.
They may even consider it bigoted because you focus on skin color instead of delving into deeper issues of poverty and how so many black people have found themselves in poverty in America through no fault of their own.

It's not hard to imagine that person being labeled a racist by many in the restaurant who overheard them.
People know that, which is why most people don't talk about that shit at Applebee's.
Yet for some reason, they go online and think they can say whatever they want without people lining up to argue with them.

The subject of gender politics too.
Many people want to sit and share their opinions on Trans people and expect everyone to just nod their heads along and agree with them.
These flippant comments about gender identify mean little to the gender-normative person speaking, but are hard to ignore for someone who actually resembles the comments being made.
To expect people to lay back and take their punches without hurling insults back is like expecting Republicans to not flip their shit when someone is dissing Republicans for being backward, ignorant rubes.

It will never happen.
You're always on egg shells when you're in public, and you always have been.
That's the status quo, it's just that the status quo has shifted from where it was twenty years ago.

Maybe what's ideal lies somewhere in-between: be a nice person, but don't be afraid to be harsh or simply fair towards yourself (which some hypocritically claim is "unfair selfishness", but it IS NOT) at the same time. Treat good folks who deserve so nicely, but don't feel you owe any kindness to actual assholes. Just imagine the situation with the roles flipped: would you still think the treatment that is called for in your situation should still apply in this switcheroo? If not, something's probably fishy with the original situation. Offending someone is the exact opposite of a bad thing when that someone deserves to be called out on their own bad behavior, so don't let labels make you feel bad. If you're the kind to seek approval, seek it only from good people with common sense (as even well-meaning people may have misplaced bigoted notions); but my personal motto: as long as you don't actually harm innocents, don't let others' (well-meaning or not) opinion of you be your No. 1 priority. Easier said then done, but stay as far as possible from personal bias when rationally analyzing situations.

It is certainly true that being honest and forthright can make you a target for parasitic people. But it also attracts other honest people. The way to deal with those who use you is to tell them what they are doing to their faces and then cut them out of your life the way you would a tumour. You may well draw awful people to you from time to time but you most certainly don't have to put up with them.

Coping with "the world" upsetting you is a difficult job to do all alone. That's why people need friends and a family, to feel comfort and belonging. It's easier to give to "the world" when you're not busying fighting with it.  Not really sure what cheap comfort you're referring to, but the concept of growing up is continuously changing and loaded with all sorts of things, usually masculine ideals of toughing it out, not showing weakness such as crying, and not needing anybody. When someone says they don't want  to grow up, it could just be not wanting to turn into the kind of person a disliked relative is or not wanting to waste your life in the same way that your parent might have. I wouldn't equate it with selling your dignity and integrity though, that's just being a douche bag to people :P
RoareyRaccoon
2 years, 5 months ago
It's more referring to this culture we have now where people who find anything upsetting go straight to complaining for that thing to be removed or banned. People who have expressed opinions such folk find offensive are harassed and expected to alter their language to cater to the sensibilities of the determinedly offended and overly sensitive. You don't get anywhere good in life by whining like that, all you do is piss people off and isolate yourself further from society and those around you. It's a basic fact of life.

Ah, I see. I guess i read that the wrong way then. White knights...social justice warriors, walking on eggshells trying not to anger anybody, yes, that's what creates it's own social hell. A lot of things do create friction between folks, but if everybody's too afraid to speak out against something that's fucked up, then things will continue to stay the status quo.  I'm rather sick of the whole cub hating hysteria with people treating fiction as if it's reality. Before all that, nobody cared and it wasn't a big deal. Now everyone's all sensitive towards it and sites crumble under the pressure to censor everyone's artistic content and imagination.

I'm surprised you're all about personal responsibility.

Based on your shit art and terrible "political cartoons", I figured you were an obese old gay man who lived in a trailer and collecting government money for some kind of nebulous disability that you've had since the 80's..

At least you gave the denizens of this (furry pedophile site) a way to feel better than Trannies and SJWs.

You made pedos and dog fuckers feel better than someone else in the world, that's quite an accomplishment.

I don't see anything in this statement refuting his stance on personal responiblity.

Roarey tags his art and follows the rules for uploading so he is taking responsibility for what he does post here.

Outside of a character attack on him and a lot of assumptions your not contributing much to the topic presented in this particular pic.

If you find him so offensive why not block him and leave it be?

You're not going to change his mind with character attacks.

Bondagepup
2 years, 5 months ago
He refutes his own statement well enough on his own.

He says, "It is not the world's job to avoid upsetting you" in response to the wicked social justice warriors who seek to steal away his right to free speech (because dude is obviously being oppressed on a daily basis) simply because they are offended.

Of course, his response to their offense to to take offense of his own, then turn around and write these salty little "political cartoons" where he can share his down-home wisdom about how everyone else is just a big self-entitled snowflake.

It's as though when Roarey wants to share his opinion somewhere on the net, he's just stating his harmless little opinions.
But, whenever someone jumps down his throat to call him a "shitlord" they are oppressing him and trying to take away everyone's freedom of speech.

It's the same tired whining that you get from any other entitled baby on the internet when they get dog-piled for saying the wrong thing in front of the wrong audience.
He has the right to say what he wants, when he wants, and that's the American way.
When other express their right to free speech in response, the cries of oppression begin.

What's weird is that this comic is apparently titled "Personal Responsibility", but the general message is that SJWs need to stop "crushing" and "banning" everything (because Tumblr is apparently a governing body now).
The only thing "personal responsibility" has to do with this comic is that he knew it would spice-up his otherwise boring opinion about how people shouldn't get so dern offended by everything on this dern inernet.

But let's not be snowflakes about this. My rude insults are perfectly valid thoughts in the marketplace of free ideas and deserve to be discussed (as if this hugbox/safespace of a comment section is an actual marketplace of anything other than asspats and low standards).
CuriousFerret

It's surprising your both are as far apart on the issue then.  You seem to have the same beef.

While your insults can be taken as free speech, I don't feel they will be productive.  You're on his page after all.  He can humor you as long as he's willing, but lashing out at him is not likely spawn a change of heart.

Projection, much? If I wanted to stop people simply responding I'd block comments entirely. I object to smears, slander, libel, harassment and otherwise trying to fuck the life of someone for their opinion. Insults on the internet, like your sillyarse comments? Those are harmless, couldn't give a shit about them XP. You equate all the awful things people do to others for having a contrary point of view to disagreement, so those who do get awful consequences for their views are snowflakes for being bothered by it. You can't have a point without being disingenuous, you need to lie and it's absolutely pathetic.

"I object to smears, slander, libel, harassment and otherwise trying to fuck the life of someone for their opinion"

Wow, I didn't realize all that you've been through since you got that AOL subscription back in the 90's.
Tell me, who hurt you? Was it Twitter? Tumblr? Don't tell me you went into the Youtube comments!

Repeat after me - "You're NOT being oppressed by the mean kids on the internet"
You might even say that your complaints of libel, slander, and having your like "fucked" are a bit disingenuous.
It seems you need to exaggerate and make yourself into some kind of victim just to make your point "and it's absolutely pathetic."

Also, what the hell is this?
"You equate all the awful things people do to others for having a contrary point of view to disagreement, so those who do get awful consequences for their views are snowflakes for being bothered by it."

Bondagepup

I never said you touch kids. I said you draw them.

Which is true.
If people accuse you of being a child molester, it has less to do with the fact that your opinions lean conservative, and more based on the contents of your art portfolio.

The issue of you being accused of child molestation has nothing to do with trans people or SJWs.
So I don't know what THAT issue has to do with the subject of your comics.
Being ostracized for drawing naked little kids is not a product of our new PC world, that's the way it's always been.
Feel free to make a comic about that instead of other people's genders.

Whenever I draw a cartoon or write a journal, I leave comments open so people can react to it. I only block people who persistently fuck with me or who ask me to, so on this site I've blocked....3 people. My opponents, though? They block after leaving sassy messages like yours, they make journals with locked comments and block left and right. Hell, they even create and use block lists to preemptively protect themselves from opinions. Keep sucking the pacifier, it suits you.
Bondagepup

I haven't left a comment on any website in like... literal years.

But seeing your constant whining has driven me up a wall.
If you just spouted this drivel in your journals, I wouldn't have to put up with it because I wouldn't have an excuse to be on your profile for any reason, but you had to get it on the front page.

Which is odd, I don't remember your stuff on the front page until your first hilarious "comic" came out.
Frankly, I'm amazed at how many people on this site feel like they're actually being oppressed by trans people, SJWs, and people with weird pronouns.
Do you people all live at Berkeley, or something?

It's sort of funny to me. People come here to enjoy their toddler-fucking pics, and then they take a break between J.O. sessions to vent their frustrations about those weird gender-fluid freaks and "mentally-ill" trans people that have nothing to do with them.

Funny, but sad too. Eye-opening to see the lack of self-reflection that goes on here among all the self-proclaimed "free-thinkers".

People don't hate you online because you don't live up to their PC standards.
They hate you because you post pictures of little boys and spout conservative dog-whistles around people that recognize them for what they are.

Didn't say you. But oh, that's alright then, slander is fine, calling me the worst thing in the world, a child molester, is fine because I draw cub art, haha. You make excuses for terrible people and get angered by good people, by a cartoon like this with a positive message, because you're garbage and you know it.
Bondagepup
2 years, 5 months ago
If someone were to call you a child molester just because you draw pictures, I would have to disagree with them.
I recognize the obvious difference between art and reality.

If your comic was specifically calling out people who try to spread unverified rumors in an effort to destroy the lives of others, then I wouldn't have such a vitriolic reaction to it.

However, the comic in question is not so specific. Rather, it just says that people need to learn that the world isn't going to protect their feelings, get over being offended, and instead work change the world for the better.

So by this logic, you need to stiffen that upper lip, stop complaining about the haters on the internet, and march on Washington until people learn that cub art is not the same as molesting children.

I feel sympathy if people have tried to destroy your life over false rumors without proof.
And I would understand being angry about that, and I don't really have any excuses to offer for people who spread lies.
However, if that's the message of this comic, it didn't come through to me.
It looks like the typical complaints of an old man who is offended that everyone in the world is offended by everything these days (followed up with a dose of "pull up those boot straps and fix the world yourself if you don't like it").

So, I'll apologize for being a bit cruel with my comments, but that's my instinctive reaction when someone goes on a rant about how people "shouldn't get offended by harmless words."
After all, we need to get everything out there in the marketplace of free ideas so it can be evaluated.
You may have meant something a bit more specific by this comic, but I didn't get all the nuances.

Edit:
Sorry for going overboard. Some of the info about you personal circumstances has allowed me to better understand where you might be coming from in this comic, even if I don't think the execution was great.

The message of this comic is that your life will be the best it can be and you will have the most positive impact you can on others by living an honest life with dignity and integrity. By behaving as though no matter what you do, there will be consequences you cannot foresee, is a commitment to telling the truth as you see it. We can all see that the root of evil is in dishonesty, when people lie and do things they hope they will get away with. I don't complain about people being mean to me on the internet I complain that people have no principles and its kicking holes in our entire society and culture. It is not right to lie, to steal, to kill, to bear false witness, to join a multitude to do evil, to act like you can do whatever you want to other people because you hate their perspective etc. That does not create a good world, corruption only spreads bitterness, vindictiveness and spite.

SJWs piss on the very concept of justice and create a world of blame and treading on eggshells all in the name of virtue and safety. Its a poisoned chalice and drinking from it only leads to shit.

It seems there is more to this comic than meets the eye.

In regards to your comments, it seems you're worried that society is being torn apart at the seams.
Though, based on your last couple of comics, your main concerns seem to revolve around people who "lie" about their gender.

There seems to be a lot of fiery, strong worded rhetoric in your comments HERE, but your comics revolve around Tumblr identity politics (which has little to no effect on anything in the actual real world).

So now I see more of what your meaning was behind the comic, but I still think the general message expressed is one of condescension and dismissiveness.

My gender unicorn cartoons were focused not simply on people who believe they are neither male nor female, they were about teaching children who do not have any problems with their gender whatsoever that their gender is on a fluid spectrum. It's simply false to tell people something which does not apply to them actually does. During all the ridiculous attacks I was getting from people I explained multiple times that I have no problem with raising awareness about people who feel differently and spreading the basic message that it is wrong to treat people like shit for their opinions and feelings, that obviously includes not abusing people who feel they are non-binary. At the same time, I also have my own opinions and enough knowledge of biology and this issue to know that the evidence for gender being a spectrum is nonexistant beyond a tiny percentage of people making claims about themselves because of how they feel. This is clearly and simply explained by individual personality differences, that gender roles are an expression of how men and women are on average, they're not some rigid category in which everybody neatly fits. So people are confusing their individual differences, which express themselves across the male/female set of behaviours and interests, with entirely new genders. Gender was invented as a concept by one single, thoroughly discredited psychologist. Sex and gender correlate precisely to about .95, which means they're the bloody same thing. The only differences are people who CLAIM they are neither male or female or people with gender dysphoria who feel they are born into the wrong body and should have been the other sex. That is not evidence that gender is a spectrum, it's concrete evidence that it isn't. Unfortunately, people who don't understand science believe that any outliers in a set of data define all the data. It is important to tell the truth as one sees it, so I tell the truth as I see it and allow people to react and respond to it. I then respond to their responses.

What I take issue with is that it is somehow virtuous to agree with something that is false just to protect the feefees of people who are by definition delusional. It doesn't help people to embrace lies. And because my opponents don't have a point to make, the vast majority of the time, they instead resort to insults and smears. So I'm a transphobe, bigot, paedo, alt-right, nazi, etc etc. It's absolutely ludicrous. I've held my own against literally hundreds of people, countless arguments, and I get zero respect for it from people like you, I just get further insults. Well sod that, I'm not letting people who are determined to hate me have any say whatsoever in my art, behaviour, life and expression of my views. If the people who go for me didn't know they were wrong they wouldn't get upset enough to mob me. When people are hurt by someone making a point about a behaviour which is bad, those who are insulted and hurt by it know they are guilty of it and they don't like being called out. The truth hurts, as they say.

I think that pacifier in your avatars mouth about sums up both your capacity to argue as well as the optimal state for your mouth to be in.  -_-

eh, i personly think theres nothing wrong with not wanting to grow up...you can lack maturity and still be responsible and moraly sound...just requires a certain....unique...mindset, funloving but firm, strong willed but open minded, and above all never loose toch with your true inner child...alot of people think they have a strong conection to there 'inner child' when what they realy are doing is outputing what there adult mind 'thinks' there inner child would want...its a fine line and easy to trip over one way or the other

It's a specific sort of maturity that I'm referring to here. Growing up doesn't mean dispatching the things that give you joy in life, it means having the personal fortitude and commitment to overcome your own demons and to live an honest, responsible life. Responsibility is the mother of meaning in life, which is why when people become parents they tend to radically change in disposition and confidence. The ultimate responsibility, guiding and nurturing a new human being, for those parents who take on and accept the responsibility of their children, their lives are enriched beyond measure. Promoting responsibility for oneself is the best thing I can think of to encourage. The things we take responsibility for in life are the things we truly love and care about.

An open mind is a fine thing, just remember to not keep it so open as to have your brain fall out.  ;)

Having been born in the '80s and coming of age in the '90s, I've reached one conclusion about life: I don't want to grow up. Oh, how many days I've prayed to wake up and be 12 years old all over again. No responsibilities, over-indulged in the most affluent period in all of human history, worshiped because I was a child (don't forget, child worship started around the mid '70s and arguably reached its apex in the '90s), coddled like a prince, never went hungry, never knew any tragedy or personal loss, etc...

Then again, being an adult at that time would have been better, because it would have meant working at a highly lucrative job with little to no experience nor formal education. I'd probably own a house and would have saved up enough money to pay a damn surrogate (I would like to have kids someday, despite being gay. Something made easier with money =/ ).

Given the sad, sorry state of affairs throughout all of the western world, I would not want to be a young person now. I hate to invoke any sort of spirituality here, since that's a loaded topic just as inflammatory as denying the pseudo-science of gender theory, but I must say that fear the world I'll come back to next lifetime. I doubt I'll get to enjoy even a fraction of the spoiled and pampered childhood that I had this lifetime. I know I'm not alone in this thinking.
