There’s nothing like the good ol’fashioned apology, now is there? You say or do something which hurts someone else, be it in a relationship, between family members, or a stranger and so you apologize. If someone does or says something you don’t like, you get an expect an apology from them. After all, that’s what is supposed to happen, right? Not always and mostly not.
The problem with apologies and apologizing in general these days is it’s a knee jerk reaction and isn’t necessary most of the time. I’m sick and tired of people demanding apologies from others simply because their feelings were hurt or something happened the offended didn’t like. I’m also sick of people apologizing for saying or doing something others don’t like. Knock this bullshit off! Stop apologizing and asking for an apology!
An apology is warranted only after something you honestly didn’t mean to happens does happen, usually physically. For instance, If you’re walking down the street not paying attention and you bump into someone, then apologize. If you say the wrong thing, such as ordering a six piece chicken nugget and you ask for a six inch chicken nugget, then apologize. If you’re trying to open a bag of chips and you back hand your wife as it finally snaps open, yeah, apologize, but only if she didn’t deserve it.
An apology isn’t warranted if you say something or do something and something you wanted to happen, or related happens. If you scream at someone and call them a slut, don’t apologize if that is how you feel. If you kick a third grader down a flight of stairs because they aren’t moving fast enough, then you shouldn’t apologize. Should someone start crying because your political views are different, don’t apologize for feeling the way you do. How you feel and what you say is you. When you do apologize for it, you’re apologize for being you.
The only time I apologize is when it’s warranted, and hardly ever do I find it warranted. My wife knows I don’t apologize unless I not only mean it, but it’s needed. Regardless of what you’re thinking right now, she absolutely is happy about it. Unlike most of the little pussies out there, she knows I’m a man and respects that. If your woman doesn’t respect the fact you’re a man, find a new woman or learn to be a man.
Too many people fall into the trap of apologizing when they shouldn’t. Hell, look at the hell with Paula Deen. There is absolutely no reason she should have apologized for anything. There is absolutely no reason anyone should have been screaming for her to be fired nor demanding an apology from her. It was all bullshit.
Did she call someone a nigger? Yes. Was it deserved? Yes. Some piece of shit black male (AKA a nigger) robbed her at gun point. At home, frustrated and scared, she recounted the incident to her husband and told him it was a nigger who did it. Well…yeah, I agree. There’s a huge difference between a nigger (eg Trayvon Martin) and a black man (eg Bill Cosby). In other words, trash is trash is trash, but we have words to describe certain types of trash (eg trailer trash, wop, and wetback).
The apology Paula Deen gave out should have gone something like this:
In the past I used a word which people find grotesquely offensive to their sensibilities. It is a word I used in anger, over forty years ago, and people are asking for my apology. My apology is this: I am sorry you’re all so fucking sensitive. Suck my old, puffy, gray pube covered, southern vagina. It’s spicy and cripsy! There’s as much butter down there as in my mashed potatoes.
Is it any surprise a southern woman used the word “nigger” when she was pissed off, frightened and alone with her husband? No, it shouldn’t be. Hell, look at the Trayvon Martin fiasco with Rachel “Dee Dee” Jeantel thinking calling white people “crackers” as a general term wasn’t racist. I’m not going to go on a rant about the dog and pony show which was the Zimmerman case, but I think we can see the difference here with Paula Deen and why she didn’t need to apologize.
Asking for a southern woman to apologize for being a southern woman is like asking a gang banging piece of shit to be sorry for being a gang banging piece of shit.
The man in the picture to the left is Bob Beckal. He’s a democrat and a contributor to Fox News. He also is one of the stars for The Five, a hilarious round table discussion show on the aforementioned network. While me may be bat shit crazy in most ways, this man does not apologize unless he 100% needs to. He also has my respect because he stands firm on his beliefs, even if I don’t agree with most of them.
The only time Bob Beckal makes an apology is when he says something which is actually wrong. For instance, if he made the claim of vanilla ice cream being the lowest selling ice cream in the United States, he’ll make an apology and correct himself. If he says someone is an idiot for believing in, let’s say, Santa Clause, he will not apologize for hurting someone’s feelings. Why? Because he honestly feels that way. Awesome.
What I really love is when he will bring up how people are asking him to apologize for something he said. He’ll look right at the camera and straight up tell them he refuses to apologize. He’s right for doing it, too. This man is one of the maybe three democrats I can respect.
Be more like me and Bob Beckal there. Stop apologizing for doing or saying shit. I’m tired of celebrities coming out and making a “Sorry!” post/video trying to make people’s pussy stop bleeding.
On that note, here’s Watsky with Ugly Faces:
“Sorry, not sorry.”
