It’s amazing the number of people without a life. They look for things to offend and enrage them. They imagine Folks wanting to harm them and their sensitivities, rather than simply accepting that we all have different opinions on different subjects and call it a day. That’s what makes the world go round.
Different strokes for different folks.
The latest, apparently, is the new Peter Rabbit film. Vanity Fair reports, “Peter and his rabbit pals attack their enemy, the villainous Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson), by throwing blackberries at him. He’s allergic to the fruit and starts choking, but ends up being O.K. after injecting himself with an EpiPen.” Parents of kids with allergies feel that it is mocking the condition.
Really? If anything, I would think it would be educational. It shows the seriousness of an allergic reaction.
But warnings were issued and letters were written and outrage was expressed.
Does everyone feel better now?
We all encounter tons of situations and scenarios each day that strike us as odd, or cause us to laugh or shake our head. Some of us blog about it, lol-! Yet, beyond that? Think it’s a personal attack? Get all worked up?
Nah. Not worth it.
Relax. It’s not about you.
