Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

Well said!

Do your best to be thoughtful with your words and actions. You have the opportunity to bring light into someone’s life today!

You don’t have the right to complain about immigrants or immigration unless you are Native American. Cause as much as white people will say that their ancestors were here for generations, their white ass still immigrated from somewhere.

So shut the fuck up you hypocritical assholes.

Europeans are settlers not immigrants and we are under no obligation to hand over the country to anyone.

Um, “settlers” came to form their own segregated community. They did not learn the native language or cultural attributes of the nation, nor were they interested in that. They came to take over stolen land and solely reap the benefits for themselves.

Whereas immigrants come to give their allegiance to the nation, and to integrate into the already established society and customs and contribute towards the future of that nation.

And if people were really concerned about illegal immigration and were not just being racist, they’d mention the thousands of illegal Eastern Europeans that are here earning significantly more untaxed money, living in spacious well appointed housing, with better wheels and barely can speak English. That you won’t find one of in a detention center.
