Side note: if you are my ages IE creeping towards middle age like a slug on a cabbage leaf, please please listen to younger people (ethnicity, skin colour, sexuality, gender expression etc)& support the shit out of them! It's our job!
My granddad said a thing about racism I still remember:
"Young people get to do dumb shit, thats the point of being young - but if you're old you've had time to learn and have no excuse being an arse! Never respect age if it comes with a side order of ignorance!"
@ohyran Middle age is not creeping towards me like a slug on a cabbage leaf. It's here, and it like this every time I look in a mirror.
Good advice regarding the younger generations.
@mike heh I think you and I are about the same age though :D
@ohyran If doing "dumb shit" ends up on social media then it could haunt you into middle-age, and beyond, so destroying your aspirations and prospects.
We're in a society that's being increasingly more Social-justice oriented and youngsters will need to be on their best "politically-correct" behaviour.
From a personal perspective, I think that my generation is more savvy about race and sexuality than our predecessors. Like most things, better is always an ambition.
@ohyran well said!
