#Triggered

How the fuck did we turn the world into what it is

I grew up watching south park, now we're giving trophies to children just because they chose to participate ?

Everyone wants to be trending for something that is happening to them

Talked to a girl through a dating app she kept saying I was abusing her and talking down when I was only trying to get to know her

The art of conversation dead ?, treating others with respect as well ?

 

I try to treat anyone I talk to the way I would want to be treated but some how everyone wants to be trending with a hashtag #trending

When someone has something wrong they run to look for a hashtag that supports the cause

You touch a booty or a boob and later that night you've been tagged with #MeToo

Where did this world go and why is everyone so fucking stupid ?

Or is it the world trying to recycle itself as this day and age we have kids doing tidepod challenges, back growing up they had cults drinking the killer kool-aid

 

Honestly hate on me if you want I don't really understand gay pride

I understand the right to be proud of who you are even if your different, but if I tried to celebrate white pride they would tell me I should dawn a hood and burn a cross

But I thought I was just doing what the rest of the world is doing is celebrating my culture and be proud of who I am

Guess it's okay for everyone else but when it comes to certain ones they are going to hit the spotlight with another hastag #trending

 

What doesn't set people off in this day and age ?

Saying that I'm proud to be a white male, you tell me that it's wrong and give me lists of reasons

While I grew up the gender you were born with was the one you grew up as, now if your unhappy with the gender you are you can change it and become #trending

They want to call me homophobic because I question the whole concept of gay pride, when I was growing up you question things you don't understand in order to learn

Now it seems like everything is like a light switch it's either you support it or you don't, your not allowed to ask questions to better understand

 

You have a normal conversation with a female who makes a comment about hitting you, you turn around and say I would end the relationship cause I don't condole violence

Then she flips out on you because she has a right to defend herself, leaving you scratching your head wondering what the fuck, I guess she became #Triggered

Being triggered over nothing like making a mountain out of an ant hill, clearly she was looking for some hashtag movement to be apart of since nothing one could say to her was right

 

Now your going to tell me that I can't say the things that I have said in this poem as it'll trigger too much hate back towards me

I guess the right of free speech is dead considering if someone gets triggered we need to back off and apologize, what doesn't trigger people in this day and age ?

Should I honestly be afraid to actually say "Hi ?"

Can't call females miss,ms,mrs because it symbolizes the relationship status but yet when you say them outloud they all sound the same

So you have to look for something that's a generic term, started to call people "friend" and that triggered them in telling me they don't know me so they're not my friend

Where the fuck is this coming from it's not like we all wear our names on a sign so we can easily say "Hello (insert your name here)" but yet you look for something to set you off

 

Try working in retail as one of the things you have get trained on day one is to acknowledge the customer, growing up I was always told that saying Ms was a form of respect like calling a guy Sir

But I guess times have changed now and we're not allowed to do that

It is as if we have been invaded by aliens who have taken on our forms but do not quite know how to engage us. ---- Stephen

In that respect. Uncle, you

In that respect. Uncle, you should read James Tiptree Jr's short story, "The Screw Fly Solution," or, by the same author, "Your Haploid Heart."  I think you would especially enjoy the latter, lol.

Fuck your books

Just see the movie "They Live."

They are not books, they are

They are not books, they are short stories---which you would know if you bothered to look them up.  And your use of an expletive to condemn "my books" is uncouth.  But perhaps you should have the phrase embroidered on the brim of your ballcap.

The third word in this man's poem was "Fuck"

I was just paying him homage.  Great write, Ken.

Oh, okay.  That explains it

Oh, okay.  That explains it all.  Shucks, how did I miss that?  I should never have suspected an uncouth motive in your responses, Uncle.  And to Ken:  I hope my remarks have not trespassed on your comment section, but feel free to delete them if they have.
