Halle-leuh! *snaps finger sassily*
All of this.
I don’t understand the stress on being “politically correct” when some people don’t like saying “Happy Holidays. I also don’t understand the anger some people feel when they’re told or the wrong holiday. I say “holidays” myself and I’m a Christian and I don’t expect people to say “Merry Christmas” to me. Hell, I’d find it really cool if someone said “Happy Hannukah” or “Joyous Kwanzaa” to me actually.
There’s a normative assumption behind “Merry Christmas.” A lot of non-Christians are people whose racial, cultural, and/or religious identities are already constantly ignored, erased, and vilified/ridiculed by society, and rarely more so than during this season. Most people know there are good intentions behind “Merry Christmas,” but those good intentions don’t necessarily stop it from being yet another reminder that society treats certain people as a little more valid and relevant—which kinda sucks when you’re not one of those people.
Wishing someone “Happy Holidays” is just about acknowledging and showing some respect for people who are otherwise constantly excluded from the mainstream celebration. Because, like, acknowledging that you’re mindful of other people’s existence is pretty much the kindest, most complimentary thing you can do for a person. And, if you can ensure that everyone takes your words as the kindness that they are by simply altering two words of your vocabulary, y’know, why not?
christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
This is you. This is where all your thoughts are kept. Every other part of your body is used to protect and sustain this.
I want to cry
it’s weirdly comforting to know that all of the meaningless bullshit society judges me on is just a meatsuit made to support the terrifying tentacle beast that is my true form (◡‿◡✿)
THAT LAST COMMENT. BAM.
