I don’t get too far into my personal philosophies on here very often but I am gonna break character a little today.
There are people who say “violence is never the answer”…I am not one of them. I believe that not only is there a time and a place were violence serves as a proper response but there are actually occasions where violence is THE ONLY proper response and that brings me to this “wear purple day”….Wear purple to speak out against bullying and aren’t we all warm and fuzzy in our solidarity. What’s gonna happen tomorrow? You’re gonna wear a green shirt and your bully is gonna take your lunch money just like he did your purple clad ass yesterday. Wearing a shirt serves as a useless response to something that’s, in all actuality, an innate part of growing up. That’s right, I said it, bullies have been around as long as kids have been. Does that make it right? No, but reality is a motherfcuker sometimes and as long as there are weak and scared little children on this earth there will be bullies. You have a bully? Punch them. They might kick your ass but trust me, the bruises will heal and any physical damage incurred will be offset by a sense of pride and self-respect.
So I declare tomorrow, October 21, 2010 National Punch Your Bully In The Fucking Mouth Day. It’ll go a lot further than wearing a stupid shirt.
Sorry, we’ll get back to regular blog postings later today.
