I'm Anti-Anti

I’m so sick and tired of the younger generations throwing the word ‘Anti‘ in front of everything. If you vary from what they deem to be socially correct, then you are ‘anti-whatever’. If you don’t want to get the latest COVID-19 vaccine, you are automatically an ‘anti-vaxxer’. Without knowing my reasoning, I’m suddenly put in the anti-vaxxer category, who hates America and all that jazz.

It is just about as annoying as people calling me a baby killer as I’m a U.S. Marine. I have never killed a baby, and I have never killed a person. But because I’m a Marine, I’m a baby killer. And because I’m a Marine, that makes me stupid too.

They hate stereotypes and naming categories, but they do it more than most people do.

And now we have this little gem, If you don’t want to have a computer chip implanted in your body, you are labeled as an ‘anti-chipper’. I have personal, professional, and medical reasons as to why I don’t want a chip inserted into my body, but instead of asking me why, you just toss me into the bucket of crazy anti-chippers.

I have been lumped into the ‘anti-America’ group because I don’t vote for the same people that you voted for. Again, I have plenty of valid reasons, but please don’t ask me, as you are afraid that I might be correct and if I’m right, you will need to make a bucket for that too.

I have been called anti-LGBTQ, and I have explained to my adult daughter I’m not against the act of a woman loving another woman (or a man loving another man). I’m not against them having sex, getting married, and starting a family. I’m not against the guy down the road is now the girl down the road. People that are my age and older (in the ’50s and up) just do not understand. And instead of helping us understand, the usual solution is to jam it in our faces and then call us ‘anti’.

Is almost as if the only right and just answer to a question is their answer and if your answer is different, then you are shunned and dumped in the ‘anti’ soup.

I have told my daughter that growing up in the 70s and 80s, there were homosexual couples, there were trans and those that like to play dress up, but they were not right in our faces. The current LGBTQ movement seems to think that by jamming it over and over in people’s faces that we will suddenly understand and approve. If you are after our approval, then just be you, period, we approve. Stop calling so much attention to yourself, being so flamboyant, having parades, and dressing in a manner that is not really socially acceptable, but you are going to wear it regardless.  If you would not normally talk to me, then please do not go out of your way to do that and then preach your beliefs to me. What I mean is that if you would not normally come to my house, knock on my door and try to be my friend because we are in different circles, then why are you suddenly hell-bent on doing it now, just to shove your cause or belief in my face? It is perfectly Okay to have different opinions and still be friends.

You can be LGBTQ all you want, that doesn’t bother me at all. What bothers me is all the jamming it in my face. You can be a U.S. Senator, and that is fine by me, but if you are homosexual, then you want to be known as the “Lesbian Senator” as if being a lesbian is an accomplishment. On the surface, I’m sure that being a lesbian is some sort of accomplishment (being socially different and coming out…). But tacking “Lesbian” to your official title of Senator does not accomplish anything, honestly, it just doesn’t. You would have a problem if it was the ‘Black Senator’, or the ‘Fat Senator’, and so on, get my point.  “We call to the floor, the lesbian Senator…”

I want a Senator to represent me, Joe Average, If I want say, lower taxes on automobiles (I’m just making shit up), I want my Senator to vote that way. However, I’m aware that there are many people who want the tax. The Senator needs to vote the majority and if it is a close margin, then he/she needs to get educated on it and vote that way. But all too often a Senator doesn’t care what I think, they are voting the way the money tells them to vote.

Alright, back to Anti. I’m not an anti-chipper, I personally feel that currently having a chip embedded in my body will not benefit me in any manner. Medically, I have way too many things going on to worry about any medical concerns with embedding a chip. Professionally, I can’t have something like that in my body and work where I work. And if I can’t have my cell phone at work, then why do you get to have your implanted chip? But, sure, label me as an anti-chipper that solves everything.

Welcome to the Average Joe Weekly blog. This is basically my place on the web where I can help spread some of the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. I served 10+ years in the Marine Corps on Active Duty, but that was some 25 years ago.
