I just had to go and ask a dumb question. What’s wrong with me? I need to think things through, and use Google more often, apparently – before asking my husband weird questions.
The other day, my daughter was talking about how her 6 foot 3 inch boyfriend throws her over his shoulder. This reminded me of when my husband did that to me, back in our college days, and when my ex-boyfriend (rest in peace) did the same thing. He also was over 6 feet tall.
On his way home from work earlier (YAY for early days!), I decided to ask my husband why men throw their women over their shoulders. After a few moments of silence, I hear a snicker, followed by “It’s a caveman thing”. ………………………………………. and more laughter after he heard my response. I’m certain he imagined my matching facial expression.
So, I proceeded to Google anyways, and found out that it’s probably because they like to ‘sweep their women off their feet’. RIGHT.
I don’t know the real answer, but I’m going to assume it’s to demonstrate strength and dominance – because what women doesn’t want a strong, dominant man?
Just a bit ago, when my husband called me during his lunch hour, he sat in his office reading me some pretty interesting laws.
I’d just like to know one thing:
When did sasquatch poaching become an issue? I mean, did some guy have a basement full of bigfoot fur, and one of his jealous hunting buddies decided to blow him in to the authorities at fish and wildlife?
And just how many sasquatch are out there if it is an issue? Do I even want to know? I’ll stay right were I’m at, thank you very much. No wooded mountains for me!
I’m usually up to snuff on some of the more common myths. Hence when hubby read me these laws, I choked on my coffee when he said it’s illegal to kill sasquatch in Washington state.
Even more bizarre is when the police have to take a cat away for chasing a dog up a telephone pole. “Sorry, Fluffy. I don’t care who started it. You’re coming with me.”
And finally, you know the current situation in America is bad when dogs start getting offended because their owner made a face at it – which is illegal in Oklahoma, in case you didn’t know.
What is happening with YouTube? And the internet for that matter…
Well, YouTube really isn’t the root of the problem. It’s the human race in general.
What a shame if the concern about hate speech is preventing many aspiring hopefuls from earning money.
I understand the need to reduce as much hate speech as possible, but come on. Whether or not it is eradicated from [social] media, hate will always exist. As will many other less than positive behaviors and thought processes. There are no two ways about it. Suppression does not equal elimination.
I’d say these restrictions target at least 75% of the content on YouTube.
I hate to break it to everyone, but life will never be strictly rainbows and unicorns. Good cannot exist without evil, and vice versa.
Limiting free speech only strengthens anger and hate.
Sooner or later, creators will become fed up, and resort to alternative moneymaking options. Many are already switching to Patreon. Where will that leave sites like YouTube?
Sorry, but there is no true ‘safe place’ in the world.
