Sticks and Stones 2.0

As a member in good standing of the sticks and stones generation I understand how social media has driven the country completely in the opposite direction. Today if you hurt anyone’s feelings for any reason what an awful person you are. Unfortunately this standard is dictated by any single individual feelings and as such has created a completely useless standard for establishing acceptable behavior for society.

This isn’t to say that sticks and stones behavior was perfect but frankly beats the hell out of what is being imposed on us by social media bloggers today. Perhaps the pendulum will swing back to something more collectively sane but when you consider the current popularity of the Kardashian’s I’m not going to hold my breath that it is going to anytime soon.

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
