This past week I read more posts that mom bloggers wrote about how dumb their husbands are and I wondered what is wrong with these women.
It is not the first time I have seen posts like this nor will it be the last. It is aÂ phenomenaÂ in which some people think it is cute, clever and or funny to write a post about how dumb their spouse is.
And to be fair, I have seen posts written by men about their wives that cross this line too, but not as many. What I can’t remember seeing are posts by gays in which they badmouth their partners/spouses.
Don’t know if it is because I haven’t come across it or if it is because it doesn’t happen.
I Don’t Understand This
If you know me in real life you know I amÂ mostlyÂ unfiltered. I speak my mind pretty openly and share my thoughts but I do it to a point.
You will rarely hear me talk about certain personal matters because there are boundaries and because it is unfair.
When you supposedly love someone why do you think it is ok to write posts that make them look ignorant and moronic. Some stories are funny and sometimes it is ok to talk about something someone did because it was kind of silly.
Sometimes you read these posts and are confident that the subject would laugh and consider this teasing and sometimes you wonder about the line because it comes across as being mean spirited.
So I ask myself where the line is and do people even recognize when it is being crossed?
Too Much Information
Have we reached a point in time where too much information no longer exists?
If tell you about the woman who caught me with her tooth while simultaneously stabbing my “lower package” with a fingernail and how I howled in pain is that funny.
BTW, that didn’t happen. I don’t howl.
No, really, it didn’t happen. I am just unfiltered.
But even if I wasn’t making that up I didn’t say who I was talking about because sometimes you just need to keep some things to yourself.
Sorry Eddie Snowden and Julian Assange, I don’t believe that sharing everything with everyone is good. Sometimes those leaks hurt people far more than they help, but I digress.
One of my favorite things about blogging is how it serves as a place to share our thoughts and how you can capture a snapshot in time.
What that hard stop refers to is I am not going to go back and edit this to try and make it look any more polished than a quick 13 minutes of writing.
It is just a moment in time, capturing some thoughts.
But I will link to several other pieces that I had thought about weaving in here because I thought it was worth tying them in one capacity or another.
- Plagiarism and Stealing
- Will the Zombie Apocalypse Ever End?
- Job Titles Are Not Impressive
- Twitter, G+, Facebook Wall, Who Is the Noisiest of Them All?
Yeah, I could have taken a few more minutes to tie them in but I want to see a movie and have to run to make sure that I get there on time.
It is the weekend and sometimes the best thing we can do is disconnect for a few minutes and not worry about fans, followers, readers or circles.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is get out and spend time in theÂ real worldÂ doing things with people you care about. Try it sometime, you might like it.
You might have something more interesting to write about that doesn’t consist of complaining about how fat your spouse is or the biological weapon they released in the bathroom.
