Is No One Safe from the Bullshit?

Last year, my wife and I went to the World Cup. When we got home, my wife posted some pictures online and wrote a short blurb saying how much fun we had in Russia.

The first comment was, “I see, so now you support a country that oppresses gay people.”

Well… fuck you too, buddy. Apparently, all soccer is off limits as long as someone, somewhere is being oppressed.

Here’s a similar story, different person, different issue. A friend’s father, who is religious and old, posted on Facebook this spring, “Happy Easter everyone! God bless you.”

First comment: “Stop shoving your religion down people’s throats, no one wants to hear it.”

Yes, friends, the internet has achieved its final form: absolutely everything—everything—is now offensive. Can’t a sweet old man just enjoy his chocolate Easter bunnies? No. No, he can’t. Can’t a woman enjoy a soccer game while exploring a different culture? Fuck you. That’s what.

And this doesn’t even get to me… someone whose words literally reach millions of eyeballs online each month. I’m used to criticism. But these days, I get called some combination of racist/sexist/homophobic/socialist/fraud on pretty much a weekly basis no matter …

Hey, sorry to interrupt…
