What are we angry and offended about, today, y’all?

Seriously.  Politics, and not civilized discussion, but knock-down, drag-out, political fighting, fear-mongering and out and out hatred of those who hold different opinions, is permeating everything.   Every. Damn. Thing.

Now, I understand that when you have a platform, you might want to use it for what you perceive as good and just, a means to bring awareness to your cause(s).  But, sometimes, we humans need to disengage.   I would like to relax, occasionally.  Just a bit of pure, unfettered, down-time, is needed by moi.

I cannot seem to find any entertainment outlet that will allow me the calm that I need at the end of a stressful week.   Angry politics has infiltrated everywhere.  No longer stress-free are my escapist habits.  Everything is protest.  Late-night comedy. Football. High-school football.  Sports commentary. Mindless awards shows. Check, check, check, check.  I used to love unwinding with all these things, and now, being inundated by why I might be or support a <insert-here>(racist, privileged, sexist, gender normal, massacre lover, boycotter, microaggressioneer, patriarch, matriarch, judgmental bitch, …) is making me sick.

It is exhausting.

    No kidding! And by the way, I think ‘woke’ has to be one of the most ridiculous use of a word ever. It’s everywhere and the English teacher in me is inwardly screaming “use it properly!” Lol

    No kidding, Christy. But, “stay woke.” It is pretty cringe-inducing, isn’t it?

    I’d like to know who started using it that way. Ugh! Drives me bonkers.
