Because They Do it Too!
Well I know I don't write for this like, at all. However there was something that I just had to get off my pasty white chest.
So many times, I've told my friend that they shouldn't do something that they did which was offensive or dangerous or reckless or what have you. "I can block that entrance cause everyone else does it!" "I can say that this game is gay, everyone else does it!". WRONG.
Let's ignore the fact that these things that people do are plain stupid for a moment. Excusing something on the grounds that other people do it is downright wrong. Let me put it to you this way- "Yes I killed the Jews in the camps. But I was following orders! Everyone else was doing it!".
If we accept this logic, then we allow for isms to thrive. We allow for stupidity and ignorance to run rampant in our society.
Please, if someone excuses a negative action by saying "everyone else does it", just shut them down.
THAT IS ALL!
