Is our world upside down? Hopefully we really ARE in one of sui's alternate realities and somehow the reality got switched? Can we switch back?
I always saw Pepe Le Pew as the self-proclaimed (in his mind only), Don Juan character who thinks he is God's gift to women but never realizes it is just the opposite. He's the guy in Carly Simon's "Your so vain" who had one eye in the mirror admiring himself. NEVER did I see him as a rapist but our tiny minds have too much time on their hands and goes looking for something to pick at. He is being "canceled".
You know that iconic V-Day shot of a sailor and a dental assistant kissing in Times Square? That shot was made as thousands milled the street on V-Day, emotions high, jubilation, everyone smiling. Now it is being painted as an unwanted, aggressive attack on an woman unknown to the man. I have yet to have found an account where the woman said it was unwanted, but "THEY" know better. I am glad the man is no longer alive to see how the mutual jubilation has been twisted.
Now to what IS acceptable in today's culture. Did you know that the video game Grand Theft Auto has a module where you can kill police? No? How about having sex with a prostitute and then kill her because you don't want to pay her? We may not know it because we don't play the game but "THEY" know it and accept it as OK. Check out the section on controversy.
Have you checked out this years Grammy winner for best record of the year? BEST RECORD OF THE YEAR!!!!! (Combining lyrics with music) That would be "Bad Guy" by Billie Eilish. Have you read the lyrics? How about hearing the music video?
When we were raising out daughter, she rolled her eyes when I took back a Ricky Martin CD because the main song had a line " take away your pain
Like a bullet to your brain", but she knew where I stood on things and knew my values. She probably knows the song by heart, but it wasn't without knowing my opinion.
What are yours about all of the above?
