What is it with some people who go batshit crazy when discussing certain topics, particularly politics and religion? They start off calmly and end up foaming at the mouth, eyes bulging out of their heads, veins popping out of their skins. There's finger pointing and name calling and abusive language and, of course, the sharing of inflammatory news articles (that you just know are fake) and the addition of a lot of capitalized words and bold letters and underlining and many exclamation marks !!!!!! to make a point. Because the MORE you dO that, the MOre BELIEVABLE it makes what you're SHArInG. !!!!!!
I see this every day on social media. In blogs, in the comments of news articles, on Facebook, anywhere and everywhere I visit. A few are bold with their batshit craziness and don't hide their identity. But most are what is referred to as keyboard warriors. In real life, they would never behave this way but hidden behind their computer/tablet/smartphone they feel brave and empowered and become abusive and aggressive with their posts and comments. This is not bravery. This is bad behaviour. And cowardliness. I would dare any one of these people to repeat in the real world the horrible things they say anonymously online. Anyone? Yeah, I didn't think so.
...and learn to listen more and talk less.
Have a great day, everyone.
And Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends.
