I haven’t written in a while, and there’s a bunch of reasons why that I don’t particularly want to get into- but I have an observation I feel like jotting down.
Bit by bit, my computer has slowly been losing its keys. I am now missing… Hold on…
5 keys, and two are barely holding on. This makes writing not difficult per se, but harder, certainly. So I have a proposition.
Consider for a moment that every person has a full keyboard to type on. This keyboard is opportunities for life, love and happiness.
Now think of race, gender, sexuality, creed and all the other things that can be used against you, just for being who you are. Add greed, willful ignorance, and sadism, and a dash of “FUCK THIS SJW POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”
Imagine that each of these is a key ripped off the board. Maybe for some it’s not too bad. Like your “b” or “j”. Maybe for others, though, it’s a vowel “A, U, O”… Imagine having to try to type like that for the rest of your life, maybe never even knowing any other way.
If you’re not white, male and straight…? You probably know a little bit of what I’m talking about.
Let’s cut the bullshit a bit at a time.
